This sunny Spanish Balearic island has too many sights to list them all, so we have hand-picked Mallorca’s must-sees just for you.
If you are staying in the capital city, Palma de Mallorca, and feel like taking a trip, you can take the Tren de Sóller, the tram that runs between Palma de Mallorca and Sóller. The tramline was opened in 1912 and has been one of the most popular means of transport on the island ever since. The route goes right through the Serra Tramuntana, a beautiful mountainous area in the north-west of Mallorca.
Poble Espanyol lies on the outskirts of Palma de Mallorca. It was built as a real village that showcases all the different architectural styles of Spain, with replicas of buildings in Madrid, Cordoba and Toledo. But it is the impressive replicas of the baths, rooms and patios of the Alhambra that make a trip here well worthwhile.
Do you just love sea lions, dolphins and flamingos? Then you should definitely pay a visit to Marineland Mallorca in Costa d’en Blanes. It houses a wide collection of sea animals, reptiles, exotic birds and monkeys and even has a real shark tank.
Aqualand El Arenal has something for everyone. Daredevils will absolutely love this park, as it is famous for its fast slides with names like Tornado, Kamikaze, Anaconda, Crazy Race and The Devil’s Tail. For those preferring gentler rides, there is the relaxing Congo River and the jacuzzi. And for the little ones, there is the children’s paradise with the amazing dragon.
The ancient Cuevas del Drach are an absolute must-see on Mallorca. This cave is close to the village of Porto Cristo in the east of the island. A tour guides you through beautiful chambers with stalactites and stalagmites and ends in a short concert. If you are planning to visit the Cuevas in summer, book your tickets in advance.
