Mallorca, Spain

Day Trips

A Spanish Getaway

 

The island of Mallorca offers something for everyone – beaches, mountains, shopping, culture, history, and food, of course.

The whole island is literally a breath of fresh air.

Locals and visitors alike take in the beauty of the beaches.  With a quick drive up the terrain, you can enjoy the clean air of the mountains and the  agriculture of the island from oranges to almonds and cheese to wine.

 

Palma de Mallorca

In the city of Palma de Mallorca, the island’s only true city and the capital of the Balearic Islands, you can get a feel of the history and culture throughout the Old Town’s narrow streets and surrounding landmarks, like the massive Cathedral.

While this is a popular holiday destination, travelers are able to experience the pace of local Mallorcan life and get away from the bustle of bigger cities.
