Majorca has a lot to offer. The Balearic island offers a variety of possibilities, which are reflected in its villages. If you have chosen Majorca, you should definitely visit the most beautiful villages on the island. From the typical fishing village to the typical mountain village. To make it easier for you, we have compiled this list of the 10 most charming villages in Majorca.

The 10 most charming villages in Majorca

 

Valldemossa

One of the most popular villages, that nobody should miss during their holidays in Majorca, as many consider it the most beautiful village not only in Majorca, but also in Spain. Valldemossa is the typical fairy tale village nestled between mountains, 20km from Palma de Majorca.  Instead of visiting something specific, we recommend that you get lost walking through the streets and corners. As it is a small town, you can see all the highlights within half a day.

 

Alcudia

A village located in the North of the island. We recommend without doubt to cross the historical center, the old zone inside the walls, and its beach: Playa de Muro.  This is a much larger population than Valldemossa and, therefore, offers many more leisure options to tourists, including its wonderful beaches.

 

Pollensa

This village is located just 10km from Alcudia and, like Alcudia, a perfect place to rent a holiday home in Majorca. The Port of Pollensa is perhaps one of the most beautiful in the whole island. But we also recommend visiting the historic centre of Pollensa.  If you are a cycling enthusiast you shouldn't miss their routes through the Sierra de Tramuntana and Cap de Formentor, where you can enjoy one of the most incredible sunsets.

 

Sóller

Sóller is another small town with a lot of charm that rivals Valldemossa in beauty. One of Sóller's strong points, in addition to its picturesque streets and cathedral, is its port, which can be reached by a century-old tram with wooden carriages.

 

Deía

The small town on the west coast, known as an artists' village, has become a meeting place for creative personalities from all over the world, which has given this village a very characteristic personality.

 

Capdepera

A city in the extreme east of Majorca, where you should not miss the lighthouse as well as the bays and beaches. Capdepera is the ideal place for postcard photos. Another highlight is the fortress, a walled castle built in the 14th century.

 

Banyalbufar

This small village is situated in the heart of the Tramuntana mountain range, adapted to the possibilities offered by nature. The difficulty of access and parking has left this village its original character without being changed by mass tourism. Do not miss to visit the Torre des Verger at dusk. It is one of the oldest observation towers on the island.

 

Andratx

Located in the southwest of the island, about 30km from Palma de Majorca. More than the village itself, we want to highlight its port, which among other virtues, is located opposite the islet Sa Dragonera, one of the most important Natural Parks on the island and can also be visited.

 

Fornalutx

A very special village that has received several awards. This small village is full of slopes, stone stairs and hidden corners. A stroll through the streets should be a must for anyone visiting the island of Majorca. You will be amazed!

 

Santanyí

A town in the south-eastern part of the island with a very strong connection to the world of painting and a large number of art galleries. The most beautiful bays and beaches on the island of Majorca are also located here. Cala Figuera or Caló des Moro are absolute highlights. Cala d'Or is only 15 km away, another perfect place to rent your villa in Majorca and swim in crystal clear waters.

 

The list could go on and on, but with this selection we cover the best range of towns the island has to offer. Have you visited these places before?
