The island of Mallorca is beautiful and isn’t just all hotels and partying, which most tourists assume. Exploring the island is a very accessible thing to do, so there is no excuse for staying and lounging by the pool all day.
Below we have put together some options perfect for those wanting to sightsee and get the best of what Mallorca has to offer.
Island Tour – Train, Tram & Boat:
Running daily, the ISLAND TOUR is a stress free way of seeing most of the West Coast of the island. On route you will go through the famous TRAMUNTANA MOUNTAINS, before taking a quick pit stop in INCA. Then it´s off further up the mountains making your way to SA CALOBRA beach area, a scenic route taking through the twists and turns of SNAKE ROAD, ideal for picture perfect lookout shots. Then after a quick lunch stop you travel by BOAT to the PORT OF SOLLER, a beautiful marina filled with gorgeous boats, cafes and shops, the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by. Next off to the TOWN OF SOLLER through the ORANGE & LEMON GROVES, taking in the sights and smells of traditional Mallorca via TRAM. And finally taking you from Soller back to Palma on an OLD FASHIONED ANTIQUE TRAIN, built the same year as the Titanic, letting you see a different side to the gorgeous mountain range. Finishing by taking you back to your hotel. A picturesque full day out letting you see a truly spectacular side of Mallorca.
Everyone loves a market, so why not go to the biggest one on the island…INCA. Every Thursday, this morning excursion takes you to the LEATHER CAPITAL of the island. The market itself is filled with clothes, leather goods, jewellery, souvenirs, food…you name it, this market has probably got it. Top tip would be to try the CHURROS once you get there, a Spanish style donut dessert covered in sugar – definitely good for those with a sweet tooth. You will also get a chance to stop off at one of the many LEATHER FACTORIES in Inca, which is a good chance to pick up some excellent quality goods to take back home, then back to your hotel in plenty of time to catch the afternoon sunshine.
One of the top nights out in Mallorca, SON AMAR is an incredible show showcasing the best talent, not only here in Mallorca but around the world. It’s purpose built theatre, a very similar set up to the theatres you get on world class cruise ships, gives you a VIP feeling from the moment you arrive. Walking through the typical Spanish courtyard, on the SON AMAR walk of fame to the fountains outside, the venue oozes STYLE and SOPHISTICATION. This multi-awarding winning DINNER SHOW gives you an appetising 4 COURSE MEAL before the entertainment commences. With different dance styles throughout the evening including traditional FLAMENCO to a nod to CELTIC and BOLLYWOOD and international SINGERS who pay tributes to the greats, this atmosphere is electric from start to finish. SON AMAR have also ARIEL ARTISTS & CONTORTIONISTS that will amaze you with their abilities, topped off with a hilarious COMEDY ACT that will tickle your funny bone. A true highlight of the evening is the VISUAL EFFECTS used in the show including lasers which keeps you fixated with the incredible colourful spectacle.
The show has 3 SEATING CATEGORIES, meaning there is a price to suit your budget. An evening out definitely worth doing.
