Mallorca is an island off the coast of Spain that’s part of the Balearic Islands. It’s east of Ibiza.
Where to stay in Mallorca?
All of Mallorca is beautiful — but each side offers its own atmosphere. Those who are seeking a tourist experience with plenty of well-known attractions and entertainment should stay on the South Coast of the island. The East Coast is known to be more “family-friendly” and offers a balance of relaxation and nightlife. The North Coast is more rural, rugged and mountainous — great for those who seek a more “off the beaten path” adventure. Of course, for excellent cafe culture and a bit of city life, Palma is your best bet.
What is there to do in Mallorca?
Besides lounging on the beach, some of the most popular attractions on the island include the Catedral-Basílica de Santa María de Mallorca, Castell de Bellver, Drach Caves, Caló del Moro, the Royal Palace of La Almudaina, and the Palma Aquarium.
