Step back in time on the mountainous island of Mallorca by exploring ancient, terraced landscapes with endless twisted lines of olive trees, tiny medieval villages and extraordinary food and wine.
Mallorca is not only an island of great wealth, but is also an island of immaculate beauty. Cool off in the crystal clear waters at any of the 200 beaches set on Mallorca’s coastline.
The largest of the Balearic islands off the mainland of Spain, Mallorca has proven to be a consistent favorite among travelers from all over the world attracting more than 10 million visitors a year.
This legendary island is known for its great wealth with the highest per capita level of disposable income in Spain, but Mallorca’s sunny personality is what truly makes it rich. From ravishing beaches to azure views, remote mountains and soulful hill towns, it’s a paradise for the curious and adventurous.
Each year as tourism continues to grow, Mallorca remains a top destination for all nationalities, offering a wide range of attractions to suit all tastes. This magical island has attracted artists, writers, poets and creatives from around the world, many who still own homes on the island today.
With an immersive bohemian feel to Mallorca, beauty and relaxation is found all around the island. Composers including Chopin and Andrew Lloyd Webber, authors Anaïs Nin and DH Lawrence and artist Joan Miró – who spent much of his life in his studio on the edge of Palma – all found inspiration in the island’s extraordinary beauty.
Relax while admiring the natural beauty that is Mallorca.
Palma’s vast cathedral, La Seu in Catalan, is without a doubt the city’s best architectural landmark and should be a ‘must do’ while exploring Mallorca. Designed by Antoni Gaudí and renowned contemporary artist Miquel Barceló, its sheer scale is breathtaking. There is beauty at every turn with stunning interior features and grand designs.
The cathedral occupies the site of what was the central mosque of Madina Mayurqa, the capital for the Muslim community in Mallorca for three centuries.
For a Mediterranean island, Mallorca is unusually fertile and green. It has an amazing array of natural landscapes from the soaring Serra de Tramuntana mountains in the west, to beautiful agricultural plains in the heart.
Much of Mallorca is made up of limestone, which makes it a rock climber’s dream. Over the years the limestone has dissolved in water, giving rise to gorges and numerous cave systems in the foothills.
There are surprisingly few land animals – the smallest include field mice, rabbits and wood shrews, while the largest are civet cats and a rare wild goat – but perhaps the most famous residents are the lizards that populate the island of Dragonera.
When it comes to food, Mallorca takes the lead for its celebrated Mediterranean cuisine. Palma is a gourmet paradise with fresh seafood daily from the sheltered coves and beaches. The most popular dish in the region is the area’s traditional paella. Along with the many Michelin starred restaurants, superb dishes can be easily found in any area.
For celebrations all year long, Mallorca is the place to visit. The annual festival, BH Mallorca, attracts musicians and music fans from all over the globe. It is a live event which showcase musical talent, both discovered and undiscovered. From live music ocean cruises, chill pool parties and crowded live performances on the cobbled streets, Mallorca is an upmarket destination with soul.
