Mallorca is synonymous with world-renowned beaches and coves, but also with nature, hiking, cycling, golf, culture, water sports… There are many reasons to travel to this enclave of the Balearic Islands.
This island, almost 80 kilometers away from one end to the other, stands out for its diversity. Along its 550 kilometers of coastline you will find some of the most beautiful coves and sandy beaches in the Mediterranean: white beaches equipped with all services coexist with tiny inlets between pine forests and cliffs in the north. Their clear and clean waters are ideal for bathing and to practice water activities such as diving, windsurfing, fishing, sailing or even surfing.
Although they are not the only sports you can do: there are numerous golf courses, carefully designed and perfectly integrated into the environment, which are adapted to any level. Nature also has a prominent place. About 40 percent of the territory is protected. With a landscape marked by contrasts, the areas of the Sierra de Tramuntana (World Heritage declared by UNESCO) stand out, to the north, with peaks that exceed 1,400 meters, and the Cabrera National Maritime and Terrestrial Park, a set of islands and islets located just over an hour of navigation. Every corner of Mallorca is a pleasant surprise. Renting a vehicle or going on excursions are good alternatives to explore it.
There are many itineraries and trails, both along the coast and inland, perfectly indicated and with information panels, which will allow you to discover its diversity on foot or by bicycle. For centuries, some towns such as Sóller, Deià, Pollença or Valldemossa, have captivated artists with its picturesque atmosphere. Today, famous people from the world of politics, cinema or fashion choose Mallorca as their vacation spot. Culture is one of the main elements of the island. Throughout the year there are festivals, concerts, literary competitions, exhibitions … The cultural center is occupied by the capital, Palma de Mallorca, which stands out for its historic center and its fun nightlife. In addition, the island is excellently communicated through the Son Sant Joan international airport, eight kilometers from Palma, and by boats and regular lines that depart from the port of Palma and Alcúdia.
