Dream island Mallorca – A small Mallorca Guide

Excellent flight connections, fantastic weather with sunshine galore and a wide range of offers for every taste – no wonder that Mallorca has been one of the most popular travel destinations for Germans for years. You also play with the thought of a vacation on the popular Balearic island? We show you not only where it is most beautiful on the island, but also how to find a great hotel or vacation home in Mallorca and what else to consider in the context of your trip.

But before you can enjoy the unique flair of Mallorca and relax under the Mediterranean sun, there are still some questions to be clarified in advance of the trip: when should the trip start? Where to go – to the lively capital Palma or the quieter inland? All-inclusive in a hotel or maximum freedom and privacy in a vacation home in Mallorca, ideally with a pool? Especially vacationers who choose the quieter, but no less interesting, inland often choose a vacation home for their accommodation. Here you can find a vacation home in Mallorca, if you should also belong to the latter group.

When is the best time to travel to Mallorca for a vacation?

In principle, Mallorca is worth a trip at any time – even in winter. For a classic beach vacation, however, you should plan your stay in the summer months from May to September. In this time there is quasi a sun guarantee with ten to eleven sun hours per day and rainy days one looks in vain in this time.

If you are planning an active vacation with hiking or cycling or prefer a culturally influenced framework program for your vacation, you should rather put your trip to Mallorca on spring or autumn. Then the temperatures are a bit more pleasant and there are also significantly fewer tourists on the island than in the summer months. The best way to explore the island is from your own vacation home or apartment in Mallorca.

Whoever wants to find some peace and dive even deeper into the everyday life of the locals can also put his Mallorca vacation in the winter months.With 14 to 15 degrees, the temperatures during the day then just directly in the sun are still pleasant – bathing in the sea, however, remains reserved only for the very hardy.

What is the best way to travel?

With regard to flight connections to the Balearic island, one can state, “All roads (seemingly) lead to Mallorca!” Because from almost every international airport are offered daily several flights from Germany to Mallorca. The island itself can be reached in two to a maximum of two and a half hours, depending on the airport. 

As an alternative, Mallorca can also be reached by ferry from Barcelona – in this way it is possible, for example, to take your own car on vacation to Mallorca. You can find out more about arriving by ferry as well as other ferry connections in the Mediterranean here.

Last but not least, there is also the option of reaching Mallorca by ship, for example as part of a cruise. However, these are then usually only day trips, which offer little time to explore the island with all its facets.

Tips for staying on site

If the right accommodation in Mallorca has been found, it is important to plan the right social program for the stay – there are more than enough opportunities for this in Mallorca! Whether you plan a trip to Mallorca or even a multi-day bike tour through the island. There is something for everyone here. As inspiration for your travel planning, we present you in the following paragraphs the most beautiful beaches, sights and beyond a few real insider tips. 

The most beautiful beaches in Mallorca

Clearly: the Playa del Palma, located to the east of the capital, should be a household name for many people interested in Mallorca. And if it is only because of the 15 notorious as “Balnearios” designated beach bars, which are distributed along the beach section – German vacationers certainly better known as “Ballermann”. But along the coast of the entire island are still many other interesting beaches and coves for the vacation in Mallorca.

Cala Varques

Located in the east of the island, this stretch of beach impresses with its unspoiled nature. Surrounded by lush green forests, the beach is officially not signposted at all, making it a real insider’s tip – among other things, among naturist fans. 

Platja es Trenc

Located in the south of the island, this stretch of beach is considered not only one of the most beautiful on the island, but also one of the most beautiful in all of Europe. The white sand and crystal blue water exude Caribbean flair. Since the entrance to the water is very shallow, this beach is almost ideal for families with small children or other beach activities.

Playa d’Alcudia

Around the largest beach in the north of the island, numerous tourists gather year after year. And not without reason: the fine sandy beach is not only very extensive with a length of eight kilometers, but also perfectly suitable for families.

Cala Mesquida

The bay in the northeast of the island, which is only about 500 meters wide, is very popular with surfers. A strong wind and the high waves that come with it make the bay one of the best surf spots on Mallorca.

The most beautiful sights of the island

Mallorca, of course, has a lot to offer away from the beaches. Thus, everywhere on the island you will find interesting sights just waiting to be discovered. 

Cathedral of Palma

The famous cathedral in the capital Palma de Mallorca is considered a Gothic and neo-Gothic masterpiece and a landmark of the island – so Mallorca vacationers should definitely plan a short detour.

Cap Formentor

The imposing cliff at the northernmost point of the island offers unforgettable views of the expanse of the Mediterranean or the surrounding countryside at numerous vantage points.

Serra de Tramuntana

The mountain range in the northwest of the island, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2011, is a true paradise for hikers – so for active vacationers, a visit is almost a must!

Castell de Bellver

The imposing 14th century fortress complex is worth a visit in itself. In addition, from the fortress you can enjoy what is undoubtedly the best view of the capital Palma.

Conclusion: Mallorca is definitely always worth a trip!

Mallorca thus offers great conditions for a perfect vacation experience at almost any time of year and not only in the capital Palma. And it doesn’t matter whether you prefer all-inclusive vacations in a hotel or want to explore Mallorca from your own vacation home. And if you long for some variety after a few visits to Mallorca, you will find for example on the Canary Islands no less exciting destinations.
