Despite its size, everything is close in Majorca. The island concentrates a wide range of options for all tastes. Below we will try to summarize some of the essential places to visit for anyone who decides to travel to Majorca.



The capital of Majorca and the largest and most cosmopolitan population on the island. In Palma there is everything: beaches, shops with the most exclusive brands, shops and restaurants of all kinds and an infinity of leisure possibilities.

To highlight some of the most important areas, we have the old town - just to see the Cathedral is worth visiting it -, James III and Borne, where you will find luxury shops with the best brands, and the Promenade, with an uncountable supply of bars, terraces and restaurants as well as local nightlife.



The beauty of the area, with beaches of turquoise blue water so spectacular that they seem unreal, make it one of the best destinations when it comes to renting a holiday home in Majorca.

In addition to its beaches, it is obligatory to visit the lighthouse of Cap de Formentor and climb the 365 steps, one for each day of the year, which lead us to Puig de Calvari, the effort of this ascent will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the entire bay.

If you have decided to enjoy your holidays in Majorca in August, don't miss its local festivities with the representation of the battle that the local inhabitants fought with the Moors during their invasion in 1550.



Embedded in the heart of the Tramontana mountain range, Valldemossa is for many the most charming village in the area. The words that best define this people are harmony and tradition. A holiday in Majorca is not complete if you do not enjoy a day lost in its streets full of beauty and charm. Oh, and don't even think about leaving without tasting its traditional coca de patata, the lightness and smoothness of this typical sponge cake will surprise you.



Sóller rivals Valldemossa in the top of the island's charming villages. But, his main point in favor with respect to his rival is that it does have beach, and very beautiful. Three things not to be missed: The Church of Sant Bartomeu, its wooden tram and its traditional ice creams.


Cala d’Or

Because the south of the island is also spectacular. This enclave is perfect for renting a villa in Mallorca because, in addition to the beauty of the village, from it we can easily access Santanyí -a location closely linked to art-, Portocolom -a beautiful fishing village- and the spectacular Mondragó Natural Park.


Of course, we could name many more such as: Alcudia, Deià, Puerto Portals, Fornalutx, Cala Figuera, San Telmo, and a very long etcetera.
