Hello!! A Month has passed since our wonderful well needed holiday to Mallorca,
a gorgeous island here in Spain, and I couldn’t possibly think of a better way
to start my new project, this blog.
I´m a big fan of an adventurous holiday where I explore, travel and eat glorious food, who can resist a refreshing ice cream in the heat? From hidden gems to white sand beaches, Mallorca is full of surprises, you’re never too far from a dip in the warm Mediterranean waters. You might even think you’re somewhere in the Caribbean as soon as you step in the crystal clear water.
On our first night on the island, we stayed in an old building with airbnb. This allowed us to stroll through the capital before heading to our hotel South of the city. Palma has a labyrinth-like city centre, with one of the most impressive cathedrals I have ever seen, location where we enjoyed our lunch picnic.
We stayed at a lovely four star relaxing hotel south of Palma, surrounded by gardens, with two well kept pools and a gym. Near the hotel we can find beautiful rock/cliff beaches. Not far from the hotel with spectacular views there is a famous beach club called Mhares.
We made the most of the location of our hotel and made our way down to the coast late in the evening to watch the sunset, definitely one of the highlights of the trip. Here I completely fell in love with the island, it allowed us to relax and if for only a moment, slowed down time.
I had always assumed Mallorca was a party island, a place you went for a wild week with friends, however there is much more there.
On our last day on the island we hired a car at the hotel,set off early to explore the south coast without a fixed destination, just discovering new towns and beaches as we drove.
What a day, and what a place we found! We went to Caló des Moro
As we are not really a couple who enjoy sunbathing and lying with many more tourists on the beach, we walked further along the rocks to do some more cliff jumping, that day we jumped off many cliffs, swam in the water and enjoyed our time together.
We stopped in a small coastal town on our journey for lunch. That evening we visited the town of Valldemossa, hidden in the Tramuntana Mountains just a 30 minute drive outside of the capital – Palma. Filled with narrow cobblestone roads and surrounded by lush vegetation. Filled with tourists and locals, we enjoyed sipping an iced nutty beverage “Horchata de Almendras” and a famous mallorcan Ensaimada.
