The high season from May until the end of September is the perfect time to enjoy and explore the very best that the Mediterranean island of Mallorca has to offer. Mallorca's unique selling point must surely be its diversity. From luxury hotels to mountain refuges, local markets to upmarket fashion stores, and from tourist resorts to peaceful mountain footpaths, it truly is an island of contrasts. The weather as well is also an attraction for visiting the Island.
With more than 300 days of sunshine, the clear, blue skies and sea, golden sands give you a very positive feeling. You can explore the beautiful beaches, which are like a paradise of calm, turquoise sea and amazing nature. Sometimes you can find caves to explore. You can search for never crowded beaches and sunbathe privacy. Take your snorkel and flippers for a fish's eye view of the typically Mediterranean underwater habitat.
The amenities of the beaches and the city, in general, will make you feel more comfortable exploring with safety, security and spending an amazing time here.
Roaming animals, sea views, mountain plains, cliff faces, and glistening lakes were just a few things you encountered along the Mallorca route. Once you reach Port Sa Calobra, you will see more views with blue waters, caves and more beautiful scenery awaits until you reach a secluded pebbly beach. Then, you can go to Torrente de Pareis and take some time to relax.
Palma de Mallorca is a laid-back atmosphere and vibrant city full of narrow streets, cafes, shopping, beautiful architecture to admire and the very impressive cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma. During the night, the plazas come alive with many restaurants, bars, music on the streets, turning it into a bustling area.
Mercat de Santa Catalina is the oldest food market in Palma, built in 1920. It is the supply source for many restaurants, bars and coffees around the city. It is a large market and you can find fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, seafood, baked goods and fresh flowers.

There is one main street and a beautiful plaza called Plaça Constitució that is dotted with cafes, ice-cream stores, beautiful architecture and typical Spanish apartments with colourful doors. You can also enjoy the journey on a vintage tram, one of the most popular attractions in Soller, from the town's centre to Port de Soller.
Playa Formentor can be found at the northeastern tip of the island and this long narrow sandy beach with clear shallow waters is simply beautiful and the perfect place to relax in the Mallorcan sun. There are changing facilities, showers, sunbeds to rent, restaurants and paid parking across the road from the beach.
Valldemossa is a picturesque, rural village in the midst of the Tramuntana mountains. It is surrounded by olive groves and windy roads. It is famously known for the Royal Charterhouse built in the 14th century that later became Frederic Chopin's home for the winter.
The cobblestone streets combined with the maintained gardens and sandstone buildings set it apart from the city centre of Palma with gardens, cafes and stores. Before leaving, try the Coca De Patatas, a speciality of Valldemossa and typically served with a cappuccino, made primarily with mashed potatoes, eggs, sugar, yeast and salt then generously sprinkled with powdered sugar. Mouth-watering!

Over 30 of these are designated as ‘Blue Flag’, which assures not just the water quality but the provision of bathroom facilities, lifeguards and other tourism services. Mallorca's beaches range from long stretches of golden sand sliding into shallow blue seas to quiet rocky coves with crystal clear waters. Many of the bigger beaches have been claimed by resorts but there are many more to discover off the beaten track.

The west coast is famous for its rugged mountainous coastline, cliff edges dominate the landscape which means there are only a few small beaches to visit.
