Enjoy Mallorcan delicacies by the sea

This is an unspoilt beach and is totally free of shadows and buildings. It makes for the perfect spot to experience the sunset. Truly magical.
Lose yourself in the old town
The city of Palma can be explored on foot. Its small, narrow streets invite you to lose yourself and explore them at your own pace. Let yourself be amazed by the old town in the city centre – a must see. Palma’s streets are home to unique buildings, monuments and museums from different periods, all of which transport you back into the past and invite you to submerge yourself in its history, legends and tales.
Head out sailing
There’s nothing better than experiencing the Mediterranean on a sailing boat. Head out on a boat, sailing boat or catamaran. A dip in the Mediterranean Sea is one of the best experiences you’ll find on the island.

Tuck into fresh prawns in Sóller
Hop on the train to Sóller and go on the hunt for its famous red delicacy; fresh prawns from the Puerto de Sóller, caught by fishermen every day. This is an emblematic delicacy at the port and on the island. You can buy them straight from the fishermen and enjoy the bustling port life with views of the Tramuntana mountain range. A luxury for all five senses.
