Top 5 Things To Do On A Weekend In Majorca
Majorca is a small but perfectly formed Balearic Island that features abundant golden beaches, intriguing villages, fascinating historical landmarks and much more. Before you set off, be sure to avail yourself of our Majorca airport transfers.
Explore the capital
If you've only got the time to visit one place on the island, make it Palma. With its Old Town that dates right back to the 13th century and two must-see Gothic structures (Castell de Bellver and Catedral-Basílica de Santa María), this capital city is rich with history. While Palma celebrates its past, it doesn't live in it, which means that it features all the amenities you'd expect of a modern city.
A bit of shopping
There are a good few places on the island in which to exercise a little bit of retail therapy, even if it's simply of the window-gazing variety. For an all-in-one shopping experience, try Palma's Centro Comercial S'Escorxador. As well as shops, market stalls and eateries, it features a cinema, too. If you're in or around Calvia, which is located in the foothills of Serra de Tramuntana, you might like to visit the compact La Vila Centro Comercial.
Beaches and marinas
There can't be many people that visit Majorca and don't go anywhere near a beach. The island has loads of them, 29 of which have been awarded prestigious Blue Flags. And 14 marinas boast that same accolade, too. However you choose to enjoy the alluring turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, you'll have plenty of great opportunities to do so.
Visit a village
Whenever you feel the need to get away from the crowds, head straight to the nearest picturesque village. The mountainous coastline that is Serra de Tramuntana has plenty of excellent examples. Sóller, for example, is a pretty old town with a traditionally Majorcan ambience – it's situated among abundant citrus groves, which is why it is often referred to as Valley of Oranges.
Enjoy a fabulous meal
Majorca has more than its fair share of high-quality restaurants, many of which are very reasonably priced. In the capital there's Millo, for instance, an open-kitchen restaurant that serves up fine Colombian-inspired fare.
Restaurante Es Pati in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, in the eastern part of the island, meanwhile, offers a five-course tasting menu of Mediterranean and Central European dishes.
And DaiCa in the village of Llubí, in the northern half of the Majorca, serves delicious cuisine at affordable prices.
