Fun and leisure in Mallorca

In the morning you can take in a dolphin safari, be at a water park by noon, while relaxing on the beach in the afternoon and in the evening enjoying a sundowner in a trendy beach club - a holiday in Mallorca is never short of things to do. The range of leisure activities on the island is huge and there genuinely is something for everybody regardless of age.

Wasserpark Waterpark in Mallorca

Sparkling fun: water parks, beaches and the Mallorca Bike Week
Turquoise blue water, sun and a cool drink under the umbrella: life doesn’t really get much better than that. Mallorca's beaches are perfect for a relaxing seaside break. Caribbean style and beautiful white sands await the visitors at Platja Es Trenc, while Cala Figuera on the Formentor Peninsula will win you over with its more natural charm. For those who are not frightened of a trek there are magical bays with crystal clear water that cannot be reached by car such as Cala Mitjada or Cala Bóquer. Due to popular demand several dog-friendly beaches have recently been set up in Mallorca. At Playa de Palma, a pilot project is currently underway at Es Carnatge beach and at Playa de Alcanada in the Bay of Alcúdia, which is the newest dog-friendly beach on the island.

If you want a day off from the beach a visit to a water park in Mallorca might be just the thing. Giant slides, wave pools and waterfalls don’t only draw the kids, you know! Aqualand Waterpark is the largest water park on the island and is not far from the touristy S'Arenal. "Anaconda" and "Tornado" are the names of two spectacular and rather nerve-wracking water slides there. However, the highest and steepest water slide at 30 metres is in the Western Waterpark in equally touristy Magaluf – it goes by the ominous name of "The Beast". In the evening why not treat yourself to a sundowner at one of the many trendy beach clubs in Mallorca. Whether you enjoy a gin and tonic with your bare feet in the sand at the Ponderosa Beach Club Alcúdia or by the stylishly elegant lit swimming pool at Purobeach Club Palma de Mallorca, is entirely your choice.

The more adventurous tend to really enjoy the Mallorca Bike Week. For seven days, you can take your motorbike along winding coastal and mountain roads through the most beautiful regions of the island.

Dolphin Safari Mallorca

Dolphin safaris and casino
As they say, the early bird catches the worm or at least gets to see the dolphins! Mallorca offers you an extraordinary experience: the dolphin safari. The grey marine mammals regularly romp in the coastal waters in the off-season, so why not take a boat tour and catch up with Flipper and Co in a boat tour. Late risers, however, will miss out, as most dolphin safaris start at around 5:30 am. A strong coffee on the boats can put the tiredness at bay and the organisers make the realistic claim that there is a 95 percent chance of dolphin sightings. Those who are still energetic enough in the evening can challenge their luck at the roulette or blackjack tables. The Casino at Porto Pi opens its doors daily for guests from 16:00. Flip flops and shorts are taboo, but casual wear such as jeans or chinos is ok. The casino regularly hosts poker tournaments for anyone over 18 who is willing to pay the entrance fee.

Nature and culture: Natural parks and museums in Mallorca
For many holidaymakers Mallorca is as much about culture and nature as it is about beaches and clubs. Regardless of whether you travel to the island as an individual tourist or as a package tourist, with a rental car you can stay mobile in Mallorca at any time and pay a visit to the nature parks between Alcúdia and Palma. The S'Albufera Natural Park, the Parc Natural Cala Mondrago and the Parc Nacional de Cabrera, show the natural diversity of these islands and the habitats that help them to prosper. Hiking trails lead past swamps, waterfalls, holm oak forests and rocky cliffs. Culturally minded holidaymakers can take their pick of museums in Mallorca. The largest density can be found in the island's capital, Palma, but also the CCA Centro Cultural in Andratx, the Lluc Monastery Museum in the Tramuntana and the Son Fornés archaeological museum in Montuïri are also well worth a visit.
