Forget any previous ideas about Mallorca. This small Spanish island sits like a jewel in the Mediterranean and is quickly becoming known as one of the chicest, most exclusive, and even most glamorous destinations in the region. A place of white sand beaches, flawlessly blue seas, gorgeous mountains and luxury accommodations, it is the perfect choice for an unforgettable holiday.
This is why clients of Isle Blue are encouraged to plan an escape to Mallorca, but to also look forward to the “luxe” lifestyle that they will enjoy from the moment they arrive.
Arriving in Mallorca
In dealing with how to get to Mallorca, most travelers arrive by air, landing in the Palma Airport that is served by carriers from the UK, many key European cities, and neighboring islands like Ibiza. You may also arrive by boat, as ferries from other islands as well as from the Spanish cities of Valencia and Barcelona make daily trips.
Clients of Isle Blue can make arrangements for transportation from the airport or may book a car and enjoy daily explorations through some truly gorgeous terrain that includes towering mountains and charming coastal roads.
What to Do in Mallorca
Naturally, most travelers arrive simply to hit the beaches of Mallorca. The primary spots are in the southern and eastern coastal areas, and they can be quite crowded during the peak summer months. However, you can find many quieter and more private beaches. Some of the top spots include:
Es Dolc (Colonia de Sant Jordi)
Es Calo de’s Moro
Cala de Lluch AlcariSa Rapita
Each beach has a decidedly unique appeal and style. For instance, those who love rocky cliffs will love Cala S’Almonia. Those who want quiet and private, will adore Cala Llombards, Cala Gat, Cala Torta and the stunning Sa Calobra. Cala Tuent offers mountain views while others like Colonia de Sant Jordi and Sa Rapita are just moments from Palma de Mallorca.
The “other” sights and activities on Mallorca could fill your entire holiday too, however. A day in Palma de Mallorca is one in which you are surrounded by delicious foods, wonderfully historic architecture and scenery, and a European culture that is unique to the island. You might also want to pay a visit to Valldemossa – the village where Frederic Chopin spent so much time. Nearby you can also see Calvia, Puigpunyent and Soller – gorgeous mountain villages popular with those “in the know”.
Naturally, you must sample the finest restaurants and local dishes in Mallorca. Paella is a perennial favorite here, and you can enjoy an endless variety of styles when you sample the restaurants of Palma. If you would prefer a farm to table experience, the villages around Algaida have amazing options. Other good spots include the village Lloseta (be sure to dine on fresh fish), Caimar, a good place for local produce, and Petra, a spot for heartier fare.
You can also head to any local markets and purchase the fresh fish and local produce to use in your meals prepared in your villa, or even arrange for a chef to use these amazing foods to create unforgettable Mallorcan dishes to your liking.
Keep in mind that there are many “agrotourism” spots all over Mallorca. These are country estates where travelers may stay, but where they may also sample some of the most delicious foods and dishes imaginable. The villages of Soller, Lloseta, Campanet and Deia are great spots for enjoying their cuisine.
Mallorca is a place that is all about enjoyment, scenery and the sea, and with your Isle Blue villa, your holiday is going to be an unforgettable escape.
