I’ve been coming to Mallorca for more years than I can remember and it really is a fantastic place.

Here are my best tips for the beautiful island – and don’t forget to check #nevernotgoingtomallorca

 ALLOVER MALLORCA ∼

Mallorca has a lot of great spots all around the island. I always stay in Puerto Andratx, but other lovely spots include Deià and Valdemossa. Luckily it’s easy to get around by car, so here are a few tips for allover Mallorca. Scroll down for Palma tips.

Discover the beautiful Deià

Though the ride to Deià includes a lot of narrow mountain roads, it’s worth it! The beautiful northern coastal village is one of the most beautiful spots on the island, and includes a lot of great restaurants. My favourite is Xellini – ask for a table outside under the vines, and munch on tapas classics like padron pebbers and croquetas.

Visit a market

Mallorca is full of local markets selling cheese, charcuterie, fruits, straw baskets and ceramics. All the markets have different opening days, so seek out your local one, and make sure to pick up some island specialties such as olive oil, sea salt and almonds.

Cool down in crystal clear water

The east coast of Mallorca is said to have some of the best beaches. I have yet to experience them on my own, but I plan to do exactly that this summer. Stay tuned!

Have a perfect lunch at Ca Na Toneta

Take the drive to Caimari, a small town near Inca, and go for a luxe lunch at Ca Na Toneta. The six course menu is made from local produce and varies from day to day. Ask to have the coffee and dessert outside in the cute courtyard. Open for dinner too. Read more here.

Visit the harbour in Puerto Andratx

I always stay in Puerto Andratx, and can only recommend a trip to the charming harbour for an ice cream or a drink.

 PALMA 

Get your caffeine fix at La Molienda

The best (or maybe only) place to get a proper cup of coffee in Palma. It’s a bit off the main street, and they also serve small breakfast and lunch plates. Read more here.

Go for a stroll in Santa Catalina and treat yourself to a vegan ice cream

The Santa Catalina (also on the top picture of this post) area in Palma is where the locals hang out, and feels much more calm than the rest of Palma. Wander the streets and cool off with a vegan ice cream at Cream Crew.

You may never find this place if you don’t know where to look, but when you do, you’ll thank me! Great tapas, cool atmosphere, strong drinks and reasonable prices. You’re welcome. Read more here.
