The best places to visit and stay in Mallorca
Only a short flight from the UK, Mallorca has been a favourite holiday destination for many years and is described as one of the most beautiful, underrated and unspoilt islands in the Mediterranean.
It is hard to believe that such a small island offers visitors such diversity – from dramatic mountains, flower-filled hillsides and charming villages, to picturesque bays, small resorts and fabulous sandy beaches.
Activities and places to visit in Mallorca include an excellent selection of watersports throughout the island, golf courses, excursions in glass-bottomed boats, vast underground caves, isolated hilltop monasteries and castles, marshes full of wildlife attracting many birdwatchers and some truly stunning mountains, which are enjoyed by walkers and cyclists alike.
The main mountain range on the island is the Serra de Tramuntana, which stretches the entire length of the north coast.
Mallorca is blessed by a hot Mediterranean sun that is complemented by cool, refreshing sea breezes and the winters are quite mild too. Away from the main resorts, inland towns are fairly undeveloped and offer a relaxed way of life. Much of Mallorca remains untouched by tourism.
Our self catered villa rental in Mallorca lets you enjoy the delicious local food. Mallorcan cuisine is generally Mediterranean but also with many characteristic dishes such as Mallorcan Soups, made with fine slices of bread in a hot broth and accompanied by vegetables and sometimes a bit of meat. Trampó is a salad par excellence; it accompanies most meals in summer and consists of pieces of tomato, red pepper and onion, with a dressing of olive oil, vinegar and salt. Tumbet is another typical accompaniment in summer; it is made from finely-sliced potatoes, aubergine and peppers, which are fried and covered with a tomato sauce. Pa amb Oli is sliced bread with local ramallet tomato squeezed over it along with a dash of olive oil and a pinch of salt. This is usually accompanied by cheese, grilled meat or cold sausage meat.
There is plenty to explore and enjoy and your hire car gives easy access to all of Mallorca's attractions. The excellent road network includes stretches of motorway and also winding, mountain roads, with simply breathtaking views.
