Activities in Mallorca
MallorcaMallorca is the top destination of the Germans. This is no coincidence, given that on the Balearic Island, everyone finds their very own El Dorado. More than 180 beautiful beaches, sleepy mountain villages, idyllic orange groves, monumental mountain ranges and ancient archaeological places are a clear factor that has convinced many holidaymakers to stay here. The cultural centre of Majorca is and remains the capital Palma, which indicates the turbulent history of the island with the Castell de Bellver, the Arab baths and its light-flooded cathedral “Le Seu”. Even older cathedrals can be found close to the coast, where numerous caves such as the Coves del Drac invite courageous holiday-makers on exciting explorations amidst underground lakes and bizarre stalactite formations. However, it is especially in the hinterland that the island unfolds its true character. Amidst windmills, dry stone walls and prehistoric remnants of the Talayot culture, the rural flair turns out to be a relaxing contrast. Be it a jeep safari on the old goat trails of the Tramuntana mountains, a catamaran tour on the tranquil north coast or a hike on the Puig Major or a road bike tour on the famous serpentine roads of Sa Calobra. Mallorca is a paradise for explorers. This is also true for gustatory voyagers, because in every corner a small tavern with Mallorcan delights awaits you, starting from stewed rabbit to delicious almond cake.
