Those who come to Majorca come for surf, sand and sun. Located in the Balearic island chain, off the eastern coast of Spain, Majorca offers much more than just sun-worshipping and boozing. Go to Majorca’s capital, Palma and start at the Cathedral, a magnificent building that took over 500 years to build and includes modern touches designed by Antoni Gaudí. Inside is the Museu de la Catedral which devotes space to the Majorcan Primitives, a school of painters who lived on the island during the 14th and 15th centuries. They were known for their work that consisted of bold colors and cartoonish details.
The Palau de l’Almudaina, opposite from the entrance to the Cathedral, was originally the palace of Moorish governers named walis and after, the Majorcan kings. Next, go to the maze of streets in the casco viejo (old-town) to the Museu de Majorcan for an informative glimpse into Majorcan life and history.
Stroll over to the Plaza Juan Carlos I and the area next to the Cathedral for prime Palma shopping. Jaíme III is known as a great shopping street and offers plenty of Spanish designers. Plaza Mayor offers more traditional shops frequented by locals. Remember that stores in Spain close on Sundays, so do your shopping Monday-Saturday!
Along the harbor most restaurants are touristy, but not nearly as pricey as those of Ibiza. Head away from this areas for more authentic and affordable restaurants. Go to the popular Bar Bosch for cheap tapas, Ca’n Joan de S’Aigo for coffee and pastries and Ca’n Carlos for Majorcan cuisine, which is heavy on seafood.
Tito’s, large and loud serves up pop, dance, techno and house, open only in the summer. Majorca’s club scene is small in comparison to Ibiza, but nonetheless lively. Fresh Bar, located in Hotel Zhero is a quirky cocktail bar that offers a stylish poolside terrace.
The highest concentration of accommodation is located in the city center, so this is your best bet for finding a place to stay. Rest your head at Hostal Brondo for a central location and newly renovated rooms or try the Hotel Born set in an old, refurbished mansion.
Reconnect with nature with a walk through the Serra de Tramuntana. Trails are for all fitness levels andoffer stunning views of the island. Another option is the Parc Natural de S’Albufera is a plot of protected wetland and access to the marshes is only by foot or bike. This is also an excellent vantage point for bird-watching, so bring your binoculars!
Head to hedonistic Ibiza for a party-fueled weekend or to Formentera for a bohemian getaway. Regular ferries go between the islands, but renting a car once on an island is highly recommended unless you want to rely on public transportation.
Majorca Rocks and BCM Planet Dance are popular music venues and offer concerts throughout the summer. The bars in Can Barbara feature plenty of live music, try Woody’s and Garito Café for their popular DJ nights.
Majorca also plays hosts to several jazz festivals such as the Sa Pobla Jezz Festival, the Jazz Voyuer Festival and the Alcudia Jazz Festival.
Heading to the suburbs unless you’re seeking secluded beaches. Otherwise, stick to Palma, where all of the action is.
