Updated on July 24, 2011

Spanish Paradise

The most popular tourist destination in Spain, Mallorca is an island with a special enchantment that attracts visitors from all over the world thanks to its diversity of scenery, nautical ports, sports installations, hotel accommodations and relaxing ambience. Palma is Mallorca’s capital, and it is also the Balearic Islands’ capital. Mallorca is the biggest island of them all, and the one with the widest history and cultural environment. Visitors can stay in Mallorca for a week to visit it completely and it is easily covered by car, so try to contact a rental company on your first day, if you don’t want to pay a taxi and this way, you can maximize your budget.

Museums, churches, mountains, beaches, nightlife, sports, outdoor activities, adventures and colorful towns are what Mallorca is all about. Walking around Passeig des Born, the most commercial and social street in Palma is a must, full of exclusive shops, bars and restaurants, visitors are sure to find souvenirs and items to always remember their Mallorca trip. Plaza Mayor is another perfect location for some walking and shopping. Pearls, shoes, Moroccan specialties, furniture, fruits, and the local “ensaimada” pastry, are some of the popular treats you can find in a shopping afternoon.

A walking tour from beach to beach is one of the favorites within tourists, 16 kms from Puerto de Palma to Arenal invite you to admire: Playa El Portixol, El Molinar, Coll d’En Rabassa, Can Pastilla, and others like Playa Illetas. Other places to visit are the agricultura town of Soller, the quiet Andratx, Chopin’s hometown of Valldemosa, and the enchanting Polleça.

If you are interested in historical monuments, Palau de L’Almudaina, Castell de Bellver, Catedral-La Seu and Basílica de Sant Francesc, are all gothic styled buildings dating over the 1200’s. Also, a variety of museums are available for everyone, Mallorcan Museum, Contemporary Es Baluaard Museum, La Caixa and the Pilar I Joan Miró Foundation, the author’s house, now museum with a wide exposition of his work.

In the antique side of town you can find bohemian nights in the bars and lounges, the Paseo Marítimo is the more luxurious side of the island, while Paseo de Mallorca is the more classic nightlife everyone is used to, open throughout the year and where locals meet up. The Beach zone is the place where tourists mix with the locals, while the younger crowd often gathers here for a disco night.
