Top places to see in Majorca

Mallorca is an amazing island, close to Spain, with beautiful weather, stunning landscape and delicious food. The biggest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is part of Spain but has a extra mountain landscape and otherworldly life quality. Majorca attractions, the topic of the day.

Along a stunning coastline of serene turquoise waters, the Cala Figuera is a charming fishing village with a laid-back vibe. The town’s white-washed houses are clustered around a hillside that reaches the waterfront. Here, many local fishermen take care of their daily task of mending nets. At the earliest hours of the morning, the fresh catches of the day arrive at the docks, ready to be sold at the market and then prepared into delicious seafood dishes. As expected of a seaside town, Cala Figuera offers a great selection of seafood restaurants that serve fresh local fish. Along the harbor, a scenic walking path follows the water’s edge and then leads up into the cliffs. Rewarding views of the bay make the journey worthwhile. For beach lovers, the popular destination is four kilometers south of Cala Figuera at Cala Santanyi. Well secluded, this pristine sandy beach is prized for its calm, crystal-clear waters. Many visitors enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving here.

On arrival in Soller, you’ll find numerous bars and cafes in the main square, in the shadow of the imposing church of Sant Bartomeu. Art lovers should visit Can Prunera – a beautifully restored Art Nouveau building housing an excellent collection of art, with work by artists including Kandinksy, Picasso, Warhol, and local artists Miquel Barcelo and Francesca Marti. On the main road on the outskirts of the town – a short walk away – is the Balearic Museum of Natural Sciences Museu Balear de Ciencies Naturals and the Jardi Botanic, a sectioned garden where you’ll find many species of Balearic plants. A frequent tram service rattles along through citrus groves between the town and Port de Soller. The port underwent considerable refurbishment in recent years – in advance of the opening of the 5-star Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa in 2012. Port de Soller offers many restaurants, spanning all tastes and budgets, and has the sandy Platja d’en Repic beach. Safe for children, it proved to be dangerous for the Moors who famously fought a battle here with the Christians in 1561. The event is commemorated with a noisy re-enactment during the second week of May’s Festa de Nostra Senyora de la Victoria.

Es Trenc, on the south coast of Mallorca, is one of the island’s most popular beaches. Here you’ll find 2km of sandy beach, clear waters, a handful of restaurants/bars, mini grocery stores, umbrella and chair rentals, lifeguards, shower and toilet facilities. There is also the possibility of part taking in many different watersports. As one of the busiest beaches, if you don’t like crowds, then we’d suggest avoiding this beach altogether. It may be a long beach, but it is rather narrow and the crowds are plentiful. Note: Parking can be a complete nightmare so very come early or arrive late afternoon or you’ll be parking miles away from the beach. If you’ve been to Malta, you’ll be familiar with the once standing Azure Window, a big natural arch formation made from a rock which stands in the middle of the sea. Es Pontas, located on the southeastern part of the island is similar to this. A sculpture of the sea worth a photo and 15 minutes of your time.
