2. Take a walk admiring breathtaking landscapes

Mallorca is full of prime coves, beaches and vantage points. Cap de Formentor is one of the must-see places to admire. It is accessible via a winding road that will guide your steps towards the highest lighthouse in the entire archipelago. From there, it is possible to contemplate an absolutely prodigious panorama of the sea . In Sa Foradada, go on a cruise to spend a magical moment in one of the most beautiful bays on the island. Similarly, the village of Cala Saint-Vincent will welcome you in a sumptuous cove, very calm in low season. Lovers of beautiful beaches will also find what they are looking for at Playa del Muro, whose expanse of white sand rhymes with idleness.

4. Treat yourself to delicious local dishes

Who says Spain, says paella, tapas and cocktails on the beach. But if you are curious, let yourself be tempted by the amb oli bread : these are large slices of bread drizzled with olive oil and covered with serrano ham , cheese and fresh vegetables. At the edge of the beach, nothing like a good grilled fish or a nice salad for lunch. As a dessert, the coca de patata is there to satisfy you. It is a kind of local donut prepared on the occasion of Majorcan festivals. It is made of potatoes, sugar, eggs and butter. As you will have understood, this island has a well-defined culinary identity! One more reason to go to Mallorca for the holidays.

5. Dance the night away

The inhabitants of Mallorca are night owls, which means that the island is very lively even after sunset. The El Arenal seaside resort offers nightclubs, including the Megapark, very popular with Germans to celebrate Oktoberfest ! The Schinkenstrasse or “ham street” is ideal for people who simply want to drink a beer on the terrace away from the hustle and bustle of the party. Finally, the largest nightclub on the island is located in Magaluf: the BCM Planet Dance  can accommodate more than 4,000 people! Whatever your tastes and desires, you will inevitably find the nightclub that suits you in Mallorca.
