A popular tourist destination for Europe's well-heeled, Mallorca is an island off the eastern coast of Spain in the Balearic Sea. Although beach culture reigns supreme here with miles and miles of white sand, Mallorca and its local culture have been experiencing a bit of a revival with many residents restoring the island's numerous old manors, estates and fincas. With so much to do on this small island, you'll wish you had more hours in the day. Explore the olive and almond groves of Mallorca's hinterlands, take part in the many festivals that take place on the island year-round or spend your time in Palma, Mallorca's ultra-chic capital city.
One of the most beautiful ways to view the island is from the comfort of a boat. Charter a trip around some of the shorelines to witness Mallorca in all its majesty. Talk to your Destination Concierge about vendors and schedules.
Located in the north area of Mallorca, this medieval town features fully restored Roman houses and amphitheaters, beautiful old churches and vibrant outdoor markets that occur conveniently every Tuesday and Sunday.
Quieter than some of the other beaches on the island, Playa de Muro is a Blue Flag-accredited, white sandy beach. Shallow waters, great facilities and nearby restaurants make this an ideal beach for a family outing.
Voted one of the best amusement parks in the country, Katmandu Park is the perfect way to spend a day in Mallorca. Battle zombies, visit the water park or play on their 50-foot-high obstacle course.
Bordered by cypress trees on either side, the 365 Calvari Steps in the old Roman settlement of Pollença lead to the Chapel of Calvari. Once at the top, visitors can enjoy beautiful views of the town.
Savor one of Spain's most iconic dishes at this Mallorcan staple. Popular with both locals and tourists, enjoy your Paella Negra with a bottle of Rioja or a glass of Sa Cranca's homemade sangria.

If you're looking for the fast-paced lifestyle that is common in other Spanish cities, you might be disappointed. Mallorca has the trappings of a city but it remains close to its roots as a former sleepy fishing outpost.
Although most of the beaches are made up of fine white sand, there are some beaches that are quite rocky. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes for safety on these beaches and rent a beach chair for maximum comfort and relaxation.
