The largest of the Balearic Islands is located in the western Mediterranean Sea, about 170 kilometers off the Spanish mainland, at the level of the city of Barcelona. Mallorca is home to the capital of the island group, Palma.
Mallorca is a colorful island paradise, which is characterized by many different regions. North of the capital, for example, is the Serra de Tramuntana: a mountain range up to 15 kilometers wide with eleven peaks, with more than 1,000 meters of altitude.
In the center of the island is the Pla de Mallorca, with its wide plains and idyllic plantations. This part of the island is especially popular with agrotourism fans. In the charming accommodations and farms you can enjoy regional specialties and sit with friends and other guests over a glass of wine - the area is, after all, famous for its local vines.
If you are more drawn to urban culture, you should visit the city of Palma. Formerly the old capital of the former kingdom of Mallorca is peppered with sights, landmarks and monuments that date back to the time of the Roman settlement of the region.
Best of all, all regions of the island are easily and quickly accessible by car. Whether you choose remote stretches of coastline with crystal clear waters, quiet and idyllic mountain towns, or more plains, your trip to Mallorca is sure to be unforgettable!
The Balearic main island of Mallorca could hardly be more diverse, varied and exciting! The golden beaches, turquoise waters and sandstone red mountain ranges attract thousands of travelers to Mallorca every year!
How about a stay in the town of Cala d'Or, for example? The seaside resort is located in the southeast of the island and impresses with impressive and unspoiled nature along the miles of sandy beaches.
Nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts and hikers - who want to go high up - should explore the beautiful facets of the Serra de Tramuntana on the numerous hiking routes! From the highest peak of the mountains, the Puig Major (1,445 meters above sea level), you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama overlooking the Mediterranean Sea!
Small tip: the island is a hotspot for racing cyclists, gravel and mountain bikers even during the cooler autumn and winter months. The mild temperatures are then perfect for athletes.
