Seven Things to do in Seven Days in Majorca

Majorca is one of the UK’s most popular holiday destinations and there is so much of the island to see that it would be a shame if you just stuck to your sunlounger every day! So here are seven things to do in seven days. Don’t worry – you’ll still have a chance to soak up those rays!

1. Visit Palma

If you visit Majorca without seeing Palma, did you even go? We think not. One of the best days out on the island – the capital offers stunning old streets, beautiful shopping boutiques and a mesmerising cathedral, all of which are definitely worth your time! Grab some lunch at 49 Steps for a view of the marina and be sure to have a wander around the Jardines de S’hort del Rei.

2. Eat like a local

It might be one of life’s biggest sins to go to Spain without eating like a local. From the delicious paella to the freshly caught fish, the food in Spain is just something else. But Majorca has some delicacies of its own. Obviously grab some tapas for lunch and find a spot on the beach that serves up authentic paella, then delve into the island’s very own creations. For breakfast, residents often eat an ensaïmada – a breakfast pastry swirled into a circle and often filled with chocolate. While at the end of the day you can wash it all down with the island’s very own liquor – Herbs de Mallorca.

3. Take a boat trip

While this might seem a little ‘extra’, you can hop onto a boat with a guide for less than you might think. With daily boat trips departing from most large coastal resorts on the island it’s easy to find one to suit your needs. Whether you fancy hopping onto a party boat, are looking for a family day out to see the sights of the coastline, or want something a little more intimate – there is a trip to suit everybody. We booked a boat trip from Puerto Pollensa for €35 each to the turquoise shores of Platja de Formentor, this lasted two hours and included snacks and drinks. We were with a guide, so we were able to jump off the boat and partake in a little snorkelling session. We also booked our trip in the morning, which made for superbly calm waters and less tourists, ideal conditions for snorkelling!

4. Visit Formentor

If you are a keen cyclist, you’ll have no doubt heard about the winding roads leading up to Cap de Formentor. Literally translating to ‘the end of Formentor’, the 20km peninsula is the island’s most northerly point. Marking the peninsula is a lighthouse, which offers pretty impressive views out to sea and back across the island’s beautifully rugged coastline! While this day out may not make the most of the sunshine, you can head back down to the beach after the drive or reserve the trip for a cloudier day.

5. Visit the beach – Cala Llombards

A tiny cove on the south-east coast of the island, Cala Llombards is the idyllic beach you picture when you think of Majorca. With turquoise waters, a white beach and verdant shrubs lining the sand, this intimate cove is a must-SEA. Dive into the sparkling ocean, or retreat to the sand to top up your vitamin D. It is a safe place for children to swim, thanks to the sheltered cove, and is also a popular haunt for the yachts of the Med.

6. Caves of Drach

Thought to be discovered in 1338, these mesmerising underground caves are an out-of-this-world oasis of calm. Known to the Majorcans as the Cuevas del Drach, each of the four great caves descend to a depth of 25 metres and are approximately 4km in length. You will hop onto a white boat and see the mesmerising emerald pools and mystical stalactites hanging from the cave roofs up close. It’s certainly a fascinating experience.

7. Deià

If you want to experience the true Majorca, Deià is the place you need to visit. Honey-coloured houses are huddled together and mould to the verdant Majorcan landscape. Stroll through the beautifully traditional streets, gazing up at the green shutters. Then head down to the water to cool off from the sun. Finish the day with a sundowner during golden hour and just take in this island’s mesmerising beauty.
