Top 5 Things to Do Off the Beach in Majorca


While Majorca is famous for pulling in sunbathers and party-lovers, there's plenty of other things to tempt you off its many sandy shores.

Alfàbia Gardens
In Bunyola north near Palma, Alfàbia Gardens is just waiting to be discovered. Orange and lemon trees pepper the path, sprinkled with jasmine and honeysuckle, fountains trickle ahead and an icy lemonade is just waiting to be sipped at the bar across the way.
Visit a winery
Binissalem is renowned for the delicious wines it produces. The most well-known winery is José L. Ferrer but there are plenty others that create more than a few fragrant glasses, including Macià Batle, Vins Nadal and Son Prim.
S'Albufera nature reserve
On the northeast coast near Port d'Alcúdia sits the beautiful S'Albufera nature reserve. Over 4,200 acres, these wetlands are made for days dedicated to birdwatching, cycling and walking.
Shoppers, grab those credit cards and prepare yourselves for a full day of bargain-hunting. Not only does it have a mix of traditional and trendy shops, you've even got street and craft markets to explore.
Boat trip to Cabrera
Just south of Majorca lies Cabrera, home to so many different species of animals and plants it was classified as a national park. Hop off the boat and go see the Balearic lizards and birds including ospreys and falcons.

There are reliable, comfortable and very affordable bus services from the airport to a number of resorts and towns, although taxis are also available if you want to splurge a bit. If you're looking to get around the island and see some of the more out-of-the-way sights, then hiring a car really is your best option as buses don't always run at convenient times. However, bear in mind that Majorca is one of the most popular destinations in the world and car can be hard to come by during the peak summer months make sure you book well in advance.

Where to stay in Majorca

Hotels in Majorca are hugely plentiful, which reflects the sheer popularity of the region with tourists. Majorca has accommodation of just about every type, but you're not likely to get the cheapest deals during the bustling summer season. If you want to cut costs and capitalise on any discounts, you could go from October onwards or even better the early spring, when the weather's hotting up but the tsunami of crowds haven't yet hit. Another alternative is to do a twin centre holiday with a stay in Majorca followed a cruise departing from Palma

There's lots of shopping to be had while on holiday in Majorca, but avoid the boutiques and explore any street markets you might come across: there are good deals to be made for handicrafts and souvenirs, just remember to haggle! As for food, steer clear of any fancy restaurants designed to impress rich visitors, and head for good, local Spanish restaurants to try authentic paella and freshly-caught seafood.
