Mallorca - Baelaric Islands
Mallorca´s beaches and coves are synonymic in world prestige but also are nature, golf, culture, nautical sports, and diversity. There are many reasons to travel to Mallorca, the largest of the Beleares islands.
Mallorca is an island with approximately 80 kilometers of distinguished diversity from the farthest point of the island to the other. Traveling along the 550 kilometer coastline you will find some of the most beautiful caves and sand in the Mediterranean. The white beaches of Mallorca are shaped by tiny cliff inlets with a backdrop of lovely pinewood forests.
The crystal, clean water is ideal for either swimming or practicing nautical sports such as scuba diving, waterskiing, windsurfing, fishing, sailing or surfing.
However, these are not the only sports practiced here: golf takes a special prominence. The diverse terrain perfectly composes an environment that can be designed for all skill levels.
This enclave in the Baleares Islands holds many pleasant surprises waiting for your discovery. Renting a car or enjoying an organized excursion are both good ways to travel throughout the island. Mallorca offers good car dealerships, although you may choose the other option of riding the regular bus line with the locals.
Furthermore, Palma de Mallorca, the capital, is connected with Sóller by the train. We highly recommend this trip because it takes you deeper into the natural landscape, allowing you to contemplate the majestic beauty of the Mallorca.
If you like sports, biking and hiking are some of the healthiest ways to know this Mediterranean island. Enjoy the paths that cut deep into the woods of this picturesque landscape.

Nature in Mallorca
The amount of natural territory in Mallorca is significant. Approximately 40% of the Mallorcan natural territory is protected! The landscape is marked by the contrast of caves, pinewood forests, african junipers, green hills, and rough mountains. In the north, the Sierra Tramuntana exceeds the natural landscape with a peak that surpasses 1400 meters.
Next to this mountain range are located some of the most picturesque villages in Malloroca, such as Deià, Pollença and Valldemossa. The natural beauty of this particular atmosphere has captured artist’s attention for centuries.
The underground of Mallorca hoards a comparable beauty to that of the surface. Modern discovers were surprised to find natural caves which served as a refuge for prehistoric inhabitants and now different types of animals. Artificial lights reveal spectacular natural cathedrals in which the water has been forming its rock walls for millions of years. Visit Caves of Drac, Caves of Artá, Caves of Campanet y Caves of Hams.
Another recommended visit is to Maritime and Terrestrial National Park of Cabrera, a set of islands and islets located a little more than an hour trip from Mallorca.
The culture is a very present element in the life of this island. Throughout the entire year are festivals, concerts, literary contests, expositions, recitals, and theatre performances. The city of Palma de Mallorca excellently conserves an historical nucleus of culture and art. Walk through this old part of town and enjoy its variety and amusing night life. Each year the charm of Mallorca attracts famous people from the political, theatre, and fashion world.
Mallorca is excellently connected by sea or air transportation routes. The Sant Joan international airport, located 8 kilometers from Palma, operates with companies from many countries. The rest of the archipelago and the peninsula are connected by boat or regular ferry lines that leave from Palma and Alcúdia harbors. This allows the possibility of easily travelling for one day roundtrip from Mallorca to other islands in the Balearas such as Ibiza and Menorca.
