Close your eyes and picture an island where you can have it all! This is Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands: from secluded little bays and seemingly endless stretches of coastline, to long summer days perfect for relaxing or trying your hand at a selection of sports. A place where you will be kissed by the sun and loved by the Mediterranean sea. Where, at nightfall, the sun goes down in a vibrant tangerine sky, where lunch is served on the beach at traditional chiringuitos and romantic dinners for two are prepared with the exquisite and varied cuisine of the island. Breathe in the fresh sea air with activities on land, in the water and up in the sky, or embark on an underwater adventure with scuba diving excursions to discover the abundance of marine life and incredible hidden caves. You can ask anything of this island and it will be only too pleased to fulfil your wish! And once you've experienced it, you'll never want to leave!
A holiday on a stunning white sandy beach, with crystalline, turquoise waters surrounded by centenary pines ... Do you think you’re prepared for all that beauty?
Cala Mesquida, for nature and sports lovers alike, is one of Mallorca’s most well-kept secrets. From this part of the island, you can go on innumerable excursions to other bays nearby, whether trekking, cycling, or much more. Getting bored is just not the name of the game!
Only 6 km away you’ll find Capdepera, an undiscovered village built under the protection of its 14th century castle, and surrounded by vestiges of its rich history that date back to the pre-Talaiotic period. Culture, beaches, charming traditional villages… All this and much more to discover in Cala Mesquida.
The town of Alcudia is brimming with bucolic charm. Admire its numerous sandstone houses on narrow, cobblestone streets and the colourful plants and flowers that decorate the locals’ windowsills and doorsteps. A leisurely stroll through the village is an absolute must for any visitor to the north of the island.
A short walk away is the Port of Alcudia with an abundance of restaurants and shops. And for night owls – it is one of the best buzzes on the island. It's hardly surprising that the Alcanada area is one of the preferred spots of the Mallorcan locals themselves; it’s perfect for spending the hot summer months and boasts a beautiful lighthouse and a nearby golf course that blends into the dreamy sea and mountain landscapes. Discover breathtaking views of virgin wilderness and a coastline of hidden bays from the Mirador de la Victoria. Close by you have the marvellous Fundación Yannick y Ben Jakober, which is definitely worth a visit – not only for the artistic value of the pieces it houses, but also for the beauty of its location.
At Playa de Muro, you will find the longest beaches on the island, and a plunge into its turquoise waters is not to be missed!
Wander along the shoreline and you’re sure to stumble across a multitude of chiringuitos specialising in freshly made paella. People from all over the island flock here to enjoy this fantastic food right on the shore. Get ready for a long, leisurely meal together with your family and friends.
Alongside Playa de Muro is the peaceful natural reserve, Parque Natural de S’Albufera. Home to all kinds of birds and animals, it's perfect for nature lovers.
This coastal area creates a unique contrast with the agricultural traditions of the town. Only very few metres from the coast, the impact of tourism is scarcely noticeable. Here you can discover 48 archaeological sites, with Ca Na Cotxera standing out in its importance as a Talaiotic enclosure, belonging to the very first civilisation to inhabit Mallorca.
Menorca is the essence of summer, an island best explored by bicycle to experience its sensation of total freedom with the wind in your hair. To visit Menorca is to connect with the Mediterranean at its purest and most natural.
It will remind you of the summers of your early childhood, when time stood still and life was one never-ending holiday.
You'll enjoy beautiful, untouched beaches, still in their virgin state with pristine, crystal clear waters that will carry you away to a blissful place of utter contentment.
Castles in the sand, playing with buckets and spades, reading in the shade of a pine tree, lunch at the beach chiringuito, going out to dinner and enjoying a drink or two afterwards before dancing the night away.
What more could you ask for?
Sant Lluis is located in the south of the island. This modest village of traditional white houses conceals hidden treasures such as the neoclassical church, dedicated to King Luis IX, and the Molí de Dalt – the region’s most iconic image – an old flour mill that has been converted into an ethnological museum.
During the summer months, it’s the local custom to hold concerts and activities in the open air, with Menorcan artists exhibiting their paintings and handicrafts. These local fiestas, celebrated during the summer across the different towns and villages of the island, capture the essence of Menorca, and are perfect for those who seek to discover the authenticity of the island and its customs. The fiestas of Sant Joan are celebrated on 23 and 24 June and are undoubtedly the most popular. Every Menorcan waits all year long for this celebration in which the entire village gathers together to express their strong sense of unity in their traditions.
They are real fiestas, in the widest sense of the word; a time-honoured ritual expressed in each moment of the fiesta, the spirit of which has been passed down through the generations since its beginnings in the Middle Ages. Its equestrian games are spectacular and the outburst of collective joy erupts like an explosion.
