From water parks and beautiful gardens to golden beaches, historical architecture and wineries, you will be spoilt for choice with things to do in Majorca. Away from its party island reputation lie stunning natural wonders, crystal-clear waters, cobbled villages and spectacular mountains waiting to be explored.

 

Places to Go

The Serra de Tramuntana Mountains run along the island’s north-west coast and are a must on any Majorca things to do list. Enjoy a stroll or a hike to the Cap de Formentor lighthouse, the northernmost point, or simply relax and take in the panoramic views of the island and the sea below.

Pollenca is well worth a visit. This charming town is home to a beautiful bay and bustling port, in addition to a medieval old town. Climb the cobbled maze to a 15th-Century nunnery, or pick up a bargain at the market. Away from the cobbles, Majorca offers an array of sun-soaked beaches and coves including those at Llucmajor, Cala Santanyi and along the Calvia coastline. Enjoy scuba diving or a fine selection of water sports, or relax on powdery, white sands while watching the local wildlife and birds in picture-postcard surroundings.

 

Attractions

There are plenty of amusements and water parks which are popular attractions in Majorca. The whole family will enjoy getting up close and personal with the marine life at Palma Aquarium, while thrill-seekers may prefer tackling the adrenaline-filled rides and slides at Aqualand. Marineland effortlessly combines fun, education and conservation led by friendly experts and some even friendlier wildlife.

Be sure to visit the pretty port town of Soller and take the tourist train through gorgeous landscapes of olive groves and citrus orchards to the sea. Explore ornate churches and monasteries, or sample fresh paella along the waterfront. The neighbouring hillside village of Deia is also worth exploring, known as the artist’s village, featuring typical rural Mediterranean architecture.

Things to do in Majorca must also include a visit to the Cuevas del Drach or Dragon Caves. Travel via boat through the impressive caves and witness one of the largest underground lakes in the world. Visitors can also enjoy a boat show with beautiful music.

 

Places to Visit

From the hilltop town and 14th-Century monastery of Valldemossa to the upscale seaside resort of Puerto Portals with its chic marina and trendy clubs, there are a variety of places to visit in Majorca. Sample the delights of Alcudia’s walled and medieval Old Town renowned for its historic monuments, traditional festivals and delicious cuisine. Surrounded by pine forests and lush greenery, it’s one of the most scenic towns in Majorca.

The main attraction must be the island’s capital, Palma de Mallorca, home to the spectacular Palma Cathedral overlooking the Old Harbour and the awe-inspiring 13th Century Bellver Castle perched above the town on a hilltop. If you prefer to relax by the sea on golden sands, then the beaches of Cala Major, Playa de Palma and Playa del Arenal are all within close proximity. Wherever you chose to stay, you won’t be short of things to do in Majorca.
