Rediscover trendy Mallorca | This island is making a comeback and we know why!
Mallorca is making a comeback and we know why! Everyone should experience this island at least once. From hiking through breathtaking valleys to relaxing on the sparkling beach: everything is possible on this Spanish island.
The mediterranean island is larger than neighboring Ibiza. Somehow it’s often still seen as the ‘less popular, little sister’ of the two. We think this underdog deserves much better! That’s why we’ve put together a list of the must-see spots highlighting the trendy side to Mallorca. These are the most beautiful beaches, thrilling hiking routes, and coolest places-to-be in Palma. Vámonos!
The island is home to 179 beautiful bays and beaches. Cala Mesquida is an isolated coastal strip in the northeast of Mallorca. A lovely, broad beach with fairly shallow waters. Its open, unshielded position makes it ideal for windsurfing. Es Trenc is another diamond in the rough, located between Colònia Sant Jordi and Sa Ràpita in the southern part of the island. At Cala de Deià, you’ll find a beautiful, little pebble peach with clear waters. This is one of the few beaches on the west coast of Mallorca. Deia itself is also a lovely, picturesque village to take a walk through.
Hiking and nature walks in Mallorca
After lazing around like a true beach bum, you might also be interested in a more active way of exploring the island’s beauty. Take a hike! One great route is the walk from Port de Pollenca to Val de Boquer. After a journey through the stunning valley, take a refreshing dive into the crystal waters of the bay. If you like a challenge, then we highly recommend the ‘Archduke Route’. During an expedition through the mountains, you’ll be rewarded after all the steep slopes with amazing panorama views. Keep your camera at the ready!
Lively Palma de Mallorca
