Mallorca is a stunning island located in the western Mediterranean Sea, forming part of the Balearic Islands. It is the largest and most inhabited island of the islands, with over 869,067 people living there. The island is popular with beachgoers, historians, nature enthusiasts and party revellers alike - there is definitely something for everyone. Palma, which is the provincial capital of the Balearic Islands, has one of the busiest international airports in Europe, and in 2015, there were just over 23.7 million people that used it.

Things to Do

One sight that is hard to miss in Palma is the Cathedral of Santa María de Palma, or otherwise known as La Seu. The Gothic Catalan hybrid was constructed in 1229 under King James I of Aragon, and is a head-tilting 121 metres high, 55 metres wide, while the central nave is the 8th largest in the world at 44 metres. It is open to the public, and at 6 euros, there is really no excuse not to explore its beauty and history inside. There is more gothic architecture to be admired at the Castell de Bellver, a uniquely circular piece of architecture, which was built back in the 14th century.

There are sandy beaches galore in Mallorca, from the never-ending golden Playa de Muro in Alcudia, the peaceful S'illot Beach, or to the lively tourist strips in Palma Nova, Magaluf or El Arenal. There is a beach to cater to any need. Cap de Formentor, at the tip of the island is a must-see, with panoramic views of the turquoise sea and peaking mountains - an absolute joy to behold. The Serra de Tramuntana is a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and has a combination of breath-taking scenery, as well as traces of ancient civilization and archaeology.

Places to Eat

The island of Mallorca is teeming with quality restaurants and eateries, serving traditional Balearic food that usually involves the freshest of seafood. Monkfish and prawn crepes are the special dish at Lua, in Port de Sóller, while Simply Fosh is a Michelin star restaurant that is known for its beetroot gazpacho with vodka jelly. For tapas lovers, La Boveda have a mouth-watering selection, including patatas bravas, a delicious potato dish.

Cafés can be found all over the island, with Gran Café Cappuccino in Palma being one of the standout choices, offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktails and a wide range of different types of coffees and desserts. Garito Café and Cafés Bay are lesser known, but are also excellent places to grab a coffee and a bite to eat.

Shopping

Palma is the shopping hub of the island, and has many narrow streets filled with boutiques and unique stores that draw in the gaze naturally. In an effort to attract more weekend visitors and tourists, Palma's shops are now open on Sundays and on public holidays.

For luxury and designer shopping, Paseo del Borne is the go-to street on the whole island, while Jaime III is the fashion high street, with stores such as H&M, Zara, C&A and many more. Grocery shopping on the island is very convenient, as there are countless supermarkets, such as Eroski and Carrefour.

Getting There and Around

Getting to Palma from England is not only very quick in just under 2 hours sometimes, it is also very cheap, with many discount airlines offering excellent rates all year round. Buses function day and night on the island, while there is also the Soller Railway, taxi services and the port which gets you to the other islands, as well as mainland Spain.
