Top Tips

Mallorca is filled with hidden coves and secluded beaches.

The best way to explore these, and to be the most flexible to make the most of your Trip, is to rent a car or a scooter, so you can explore by yourself!

There are many affordable options, and its best to book ahead online.

The towns are much more lively and interesting if you visit on Market Day, as the locals and tourists come out and many many shops offer souvenirs, fresh juice, and food!

Google ahead to see what day the weekly market is for the town you are visiting (even for Palma)!

There are so many incredible sunset spots dotted along the coast or in the mountains, so a perfect way to end the day is to head out after dinner in search of a new sunset spot!
