Discover Mallorca - Beach paradise, cliffs and romantic mountains

Bright sunshine, 180 beaches and beautiful natural landscapes - these are just some of the many reasons to choose Mallorca as a holiday destination. Over 12 million tourists a year cannot be wrong. The Balearic Island oozes charm with a mix of idyllic coastal regions, historical cultural heritage and a first-class tourist infrastructure.

Interesting Places in MallorcaWhatever you are looking for you will find in Mallorca.  Sunbathers can enjoy the summer rays from spring to autumn, active holidaymakers can look forward to spectacular hiking trails in the Tramuntanas, and tourists interested in culture can choose from centuries-old monasteries, medieval fortresses and historic sites.

The landscapes and the cultural heritage are as varied as the towns, villages and seaside resorts on the island. Mallorca's most beautiful places are presented in detail focusing on regional and geographic features. Learn about the history of places, activities, beaches, shopping and accommodation. In addition, you will learn about the special features Mallorca has to offer and the most interesting locations as well as all the sights and attractions in the area.

Mallorca's most beautiful places differ vastly in terms of cultural heritage, history and tourist offerings. The classic tourist hubs such as Cala Ratjada, Cala Millor and El Arenal will be featured but also the port city of Alcúdia with its picturesque old town centre and the enchanting Santanyi with its sandstone-coloured buildings. While El Arenal is known as a spot to dance the night away, for its beer garden ambience and party vibe, Alcudia and Cala Millor mainly attract families and solo travellers. The proximity of the tourist stronghold of El Arenal to the Mallorcan capital makes excursions by bus or taxi to Palma de Mallorca possible at any time. The seaside resorts on the northeast and north coast of Mallorca, however, are the perfect starting point for trips to the 200 m high cliffs at Cap Formentor and in the S'Albufera Natural Park.

Pollença is a town of 16,000 inhabitants on the edge of the Serra de Tramuntana. On the west coast of Mallorca, Port d'Andratx is an exclusive harbour town in front of a picturesque mountain backdrop.

Fornalutx is a small village of just 700 souls in the Serra de Tramuntana. With its narrow winding lanes, stone houses and stone steps, the place is an architectural jewel on the west coast of Mallorca. Peguera is a lively seaside resort in the southwest. Three fine sandy beaches provide excellent conditions for swimming, snorkelling and various water sports.

Mallorca's most beautiful places

Beach Paradise in MallorcaJoin us on a trip to discover the most beautiful and interesting places in Mallorca and find your own personal favourites for next time. Mallorca is a Mediterranean island of great diversity with a landscape dominated by jagged cliffs, miles of sandy beaches and a wild rugged mountain range in the north.

We would like to introduce you to the individual holiday regions of the largest Balearic Island and get you in the mood for a holiday in Mallorca. The west coast of the island is wild and untamed and dominated by the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range and numerous holiday homes picturesquely situated on the slopes by the surrounding villages of Port de Sóller and Valldemossa. On the north coast of Mallorca is the bay of Alcúdia, spanning 25km and boasting beautiful sandy beaches and drawing large amounts of tourists. On the northeast coast are the lively resorts of Cala Millor, Cala Bona and Cala Ratjada.

Picturesque bays with golden sand dominate the coastal regions to the south and southeast of Mallorca. Cala d'Or and Porto Cristo are among the livelier holiday resorts on this stretch of coast. In this region you can opt for staying in a rustic finca, a modern holiday house with pool or spacious apartments. A studio in the island's capital Palma de Mallorca or a holiday apartment on the Playa de Palma are ideal for self-catering if you want to combine a beach holiday with nocturnal fun, without having to miss out on the big city ambience. In stark contrast to the party strongholds in the south and southwest, inland Mallorca offers a rural Mediterranean experience, far away from the tourist hustle and bustle where you can have as leisurely or active holiday as you desire in one of the many remoter stone country cottages.
