Mallorca always a sure winner

Mallorca is rightly famous for its beautiful beaches and weather, but there's much more. The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is a whole continent in miniature. Forested mountains and steep rocky coasts to the north. Flat and vast farmland in the middle, where life runs at a slower pace. Big city pulse and cultural life in the metropolis of Palma. All surrounded by the most beautiful turquoise sea, which attracts sailors, surfers and sun lovers. Mallorca has something that keeps tourists coming back time and time again. There is certainly something for everyone, the distances are relatively short and it is just so beautiful.

Lots to do in Mallorca

If you are going to Mallorca, I would of course recommend you to experience Palma with its many markets, small cozy streets and squares. Palma is now a hot destination in itself. Smart shops, art galleries, modernist architecture, a magnificent cathedral, 2 harbours lined with mega-yachts, green promenades, pavement cafes, tapas bars, great restaurants and lively nightlife. On your tour, of course, you must also see the pride of Palma, the magnificent cathedral, La Seu. The impressive La Seu Cathedral in Palma is one of Mallorca's most significant sites. Construction of the cathedral began in 1230 and continued for 400 years.

Airline tickets can sometimes be purchased for less than the cost of flying to Copenhagen from Jutland. And as an independent webdesigner, I'm lucky enough to have the flexibility to make it work.

Mallorca has some fantastic beaches and dozens of picturesque coves to choose from. The Calvià coastline stretches 50 kilometres slowly around cliffs and coves. This area offers many great beaches. A really beautiful beach is Cala Vinyes, a small sandy beach with calm waters ideal for swimming and bathing. Playa de Palma Nova is an award-winning beach with excellent facilities. Calm waters make this beach popular with families, plus there's plenty of space to spread out. Palma Nova Beach has sandy beaches stretching almost two kilometres. The beach is also great for water sports and diving. Other beaches along the coast of Calvia include Playas Paguera, a town beach and Cala de Santa Ponsa. An expansive beach with a yacht club in a beautiful setting.

Fantastic restaurants in Mallorca

Lloseta - not one of Mallorca's most famous villages - may seem an unlikely place to find a restaurant that is so good that you have to book months in advance if you want to eat there. Great meal with good local produce. Delicious and very modest price. Highly recommended. Remember to book well in advance 😉
