Visitors flock to Mallorca to soak in the warm turquoise waters before lying back on the gorgeous golden sands. It’s a popular spot — and for good reason — but for anyone planning a break in the Balearics, it is still possible to find peace and escape the tourist crowds.
Beyond the busier beaches, there are secret spots aplenty, with quiet coves beckoning and the island’s mountainous exterior to explore. Discover quaint stone villages and Roman remains, walk amongst the citrus plantations or head to Palma, Mallorca’s cosmopolitan capital, where the restaurants serve the freshest food and the nightlife is legendary, there are options here to suit all tastes.
More often than not, though, you’ll be drawn back to the beach for the chance to relax beneath the beating Balearic sun before cooling down in the inviting Mediterranean waters. Island life at its best, it’s no surprise that Mallorca continues to prove so popular.
