What To See And Do In Mallorca

Besides taking in Mallorca's spectacular scenery and panorama, there are many water, sea and land based activities to choose from. There are a variety of Majorca attractions to consider during your Balearic retreat with a plethora of golden beaches and azure waters, a selection of land based attractions in Majorca and some of the finiest cuisine in the Mediterranean.

A beautiful Mallorca beach with golden sand and lovely views, however it can be
very busy during the height of the summer. Drive into Puerto Pollença
and follow the signs for Formentor (parking available at a charge).
Alternatively you can take the ferry boat from Puerto Pollença to Formentor.

cala san vicente

 

 

 

Cala San Vicente

Cala San Vicente has two lovely bays with beautiful clear blue waters,
which is ideal for snorkelling when the sea is calm, Cala Carbo and
Cala Molins. The first bay is a sandy bay with good facilities
(restaurants and sun loungers) and is manned by a lifeguard. If you
continue up the windy road you will come to the second bay that is
usually a little quieter.

puerto pollenca

 

 

Puerto Pollenca

A very long beach, stretching nearly all the way from Puerto Pollença
to Port d’ Alcudia. It is a sheltered, gently sloping sandy beach with
many excellent water sports available. This beach is very popular and
can become crowded, but it is possible to find a quieter spot if you
head along the Puerto Pollença road towards Port d’ Alcudia.

master.
