Top 10 things to do in Mallorca
Famous for its beaches, villas, and pearls, Mallorca is a little taste of paradise off Spain's Mediterranean coast. For decades it's been a popular hotspot for summer and winter holidays alike due to its many diverse attractions. Here are ten of the best.
1. La Seu (Palma Cathedral)
Designed by Antoni Gaudí and Miquel Barceló, Palma's magnificent cathedral is unlike any in the world. Mass times vary, but you can be sure to catch one at 9:00AM daily.
5. Fornalutx and Biniaraix
The walk between these two quaint towns covers some of the island's most exuberant scenery, with olive, oak, and pine trees, a watermill, and Fornalutx's citrus-littered cemetery.
6. Jardines d'Alfàbia
Nestled in the rugged mountains of Serra d’Alfàbia, is this ambrosial garden that was once the courtyard of an Arab viceroy. Today, however, it's occupied by rambling farm animals.
8. Puerto de Soller
Soller's port is the scenic highlight of this historic town, with twin lighthouses forming a gateway to its sandy bay. Don't miss touring the seafront on its vintage trams!
9. Illa de Cabrera
If you just can't get enough peace and quiet, then head to this uninhabited islet and National Park off Mallorca's south coast to sunbathe, hike, or explore its old castle.
Visiting Mallorca for the sea and sand? The resort beach of Playa de Muro is one of the best, but if you fancy something a little more isolated, then head to the wilder Es Trenc.

Planning Your Visit
When to visit?
The best time to visit Mallorca is between June and August, when the weather averages about 86°F and the coastal breeze stops temperatures from getting intolerable. This is also when the island hosts its music and film festivals. For a nice wintry trip with mild weather October won't disappointed - it's better-suited to exploring Mallorca's local cultures and historic buildings.

What people are saying about Mallorca
My favourite part of my time here. We booked the sunrise tour and it was truly surreal. David was our driver / tour guide and he was absolutely brilliant, he put all the effort to make sure we got up close with the dolphins, took us to every crevice of the Caves so we can see all the details and had the best boat tricks ! Honestly 10/10 to him, he made the tour worth every penny!!
After booking and reading a few reviews I was a bit hesitant about the boat trip… no need to worry though, we had a lovely day! Music was not loud at all and enjoyed by all in our family, BBQ lunch was nice and the crew super kind and helpful. Would definitely recommend this trip!
Our guide, Michael J., was a great guide on this tour. With his years of experience, he was able to share Mallorcan history as well as his knowledge of the wineries. He was friendly and accommodating and definitely made the great tour even more enjoyable.
Knowing the weather was going to be temperamental we booked via this app and walked past the hour queue wait. Highly recommend a visit to the cathedral it’s beautiful.
Although we left nearly an hour late. We really enjoyed this trip
