There’s More to Mallorca: Top Five Things To Do That Aren’t Partying

There's More to Mallorca, Spain Than Partying

We were looking for a weekend city break where we could relax and soak up some sunshine when we came across an amazing deal on Expedia — flights and hotel in Mallorca in late-April for less than $225 CAD each. Sign. Us. Up.

It was only after booking our tickets that we realised we didn’t really know much about Mallorca other than the stereotypes: it is a top destination for British and German tourists, and that the party just don’t stop.

We didn’t really have any plans to check out the infamous, never-ending party scene (don’t get me wrong, we totally did; when pints are just €1.50, and clubs are offering 2 for 1 drinks plus a free shots, it’s hard to say no…) so we weren’t sure how we would go about spending our days. Thankfully, we quickly learned that there’s much more to Mallorcan than partying.

Here are my top five recommendations for Mallorca:

Explore Palma

Full of history and surprises, Palma de Mallorca is an amazing city with so much to see and explore. From the Cathedral de Mallorca to the Plaça del Mercat, it’s worth setting aside a few hours to explore the city.

Relax on the Beach

Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and contains no less than 40 beaches. With their pristine white sand and brilliant blue waters, Mallorcan beaches are the perfect place to pull up chair, crack a good book and spend a relaxing afternoon.

Rent Bikes

Our second day in Mallorca we decided to rent bikes and explore a bit. For over 10km we rode along flat, perfectly paved paths which took us past farms, fields and gave us amazing views of the mountains and sea.

Not only was the bike rental inexpensive, but as I mentioned above, the land was flat making for an easy, but delightful afternoon ride.

Drive the North Coast

While the south coast of Mallorca gets most of the attention, the north coast is where the drama is. Drive through the mountains and along the coast taking in the scenery and marvelling at the stunning Mediterranean.

Kite Surfing / Parasailing

If you’ve ever wanted to try kite surfing or parasailing, well, Mallorca’s the place to do it! Playa de Palma Beach, located just outside of the city, offers a steady wind stream making for the ideal conditions to kitesurf or parasail.
