The very best of Mallorca
Discover the coastal delights of Mallorca
Turquoise waters, secluded coves, and gorgeous golden bays—Mallorca’s glittering coast holds many delights for its fortunate visitors. A haven for beach lovers and those who like to see the sights on two wheels, a single visit to this idyllic island simply isn’t enough to experience it all.
Make your way inland, and you’ll experience the wild beauty of Mallorca’s majestic mountains. The Serra de Tramuntana mountain range spans 90 kilometres across the northwest coast, providing an ultra-scenic playground for adventurers and explorers.
Prefer the hustle and bustle of a busy city? The capital, Palma, boasts an array of shops, bars, and Michelin-star eateries to satisfy even the pickiest of palates. Renowned for its vibrant nightlife, the island is host to many events throughout the year, as well as its annual yacht parties and the famed Superyacht Cup.

With our exclusive concierge services, you’ll have all the time in the world to focus on what really matters—making unforgettable holiday memories.

Beautiful beaches and rugged mountain ranges
The island is famed for its long stretches of sandy beaches, as well as the slightly more hidden gems dotted along the coast. Take a walk or drive away from the well-trodden path and you’ll soon find a whole host of stunning coves and bays, hidden from the crowds. From the pebbly shores and crystal-clear waters of Cala Deià to the fine powdery sands of Cala Llombards and Calo des Moro, it’s oh-so-easy to land the perfect spot to lay your beach towel down for the day.
If you love the buzz of a busy beach, then Playa de Canyamel and Playa de Camp de Mar are sure to please. With plenty of loungers and amenities right on the sands, you’ll have everything you need for a fun-filled day with friends or family.
Prefer to enjoy the azure coast from above? Far removed from the bustle of Palma, the mountains of Mallorca offer total solace for those who seek it. Whether you’re planning on exploring them by foot or by bike, expect a challenge. However, your efforts will be greatly rewarded. Atop the Serra de Tramuntana range is where you’ll get the best views of the sparkling Mediterranean, where the sky seems to blend straight into the sea.
Plenty of choices for thrill-seekers
If sipping cocktails at one of the island’s many beach clubs isn’t quite what you are after, then rest assured you’ll find plenty of opportunities for adventure. Fans of watersports will enjoy the wealth of activities, from jet skiing and coasteering to sea caving and flyboarding. For those who like to keep their feet firmly on dry land, bike hire and horse riding excursions are just a couple of great ways to explore the area.
Spend an afternoon exploring the stunning Parc Natural de Mondrago Experience—its rocky terrain is perfect for bike rides with the family. Enjoy the most spectacular sunsets from the Mirador Es Colomer - a popular elevated lookout on the north of the island.
If you’d prefer to take things easy, there’s always the option of golfing days in Mallorca. From Golf Son Gual to Golf Park Mallorca Puntiró, we can help you enjoy the best courses on the island.
When it comes to sightseeing, you’re truly spoiled for choice. Ancient castles, mighty cathedrals, and royal palaces are just a few of the awe-inspiring attractions you’ll discover as you explore the island. Spend an afternoon gazing at the impressive architecture of Catedral-Basílica de Santa María de Mallorca in the capital city, or head north to soak up the incredible sea views from Cap de Formentor. Wherever you decide to go, there’s always something interesting just around the corner.
Live like a local and browse the weekly markets in Santanyi, brimming with fresh fruits, vegetables, and local dairy products. Nearby, the crystalline waters of Cala Santanyi beckon you to take a dip. Fornalutx is yet another beautiful town just waiting to be discovered, set among the verdant hillsides of the island. Voted as one of Europe’s prettiest villages, it’s also a fantastic location to enjoy some fine dining.
Fans of live music won’t be disappointed, either. From party boats to music events on the sands of Nikki Beach, there’s always something going on here. Mallorca LIVE! is one of the island’s biggest festivals covering absolutely everything from rock to EDM. Other popular events include the Polo Cup and the Oris Rally Classico Mallorca - an impressive glamour car show.
Spend a day in the capital city
Leafy neighbourhoods, spectacular cathedrals, and a wealth of trendy bars and restaurants—Palma is such a delight to stroll around. And with over 300 days of brilliant sunshine every year, you can really make the most of everything it has to offer. Nicknamed ‘the Golden Mile’, Paseo del Borne is the city’s most upmarket avenue. From Rolex to Louis Vuitton, it’s one of the best places to indulge in some retail therapy.
Discover the rich history of the city in Palma Old Town, or El Casco Antiguo. Home to the elegant Royal Palace of Almudaina and the incredible 'La Seu' Cathedral, there’s so much for history buffs to discover here.
Along the palm-lined promenade is an array of beach clubs and restaurants, serving up authentic Mediterranean dishes—the enticing scent of freshly cooked paella and seafood in the air is incredibly hard to resist.
Wine and dine
You never have to travel far to find great food on the island. Planning an evening out in Palma? The Adrian Quetglas Restaurant is a sophisticated Mediterranean dining room serving up a choice of two sublime tasting menus, inspired by the experiences of head chef, Adrian Quetglas, and carefully curated by his talented team.
Not too far away and tucked down a tiny alley is Fera, blending traditional Japanese flavours with Mediterranean cuisine. A match that could have quite easily been made in heaven, expect to enjoy the finest of ingredients—caviar, lobster, and wagyu beef often make appearances.
The Michelin-star Marc Fosh Restaurant is a haven for wine lovers, with experts on hand to create the perfect pairing. Using locally sourced ingredients from across the Balearic Islands, you’ll find everything from local llampuga fish and wild sea bass to foie gras and suckling pig.
Boasting not one but two Michelin stars, Zaranda offers an exceptional dining experience. Inspired by the culinary visions of Fernando P. Arellano, each menu features a variety of fresh seafood and fish dishes—from Mallorca oyster to lightly fried razor wrasse.
For mouthwatering sushi dishes, head over to Abbaco Natural Food in Puerto de Pollença—the views of the coast from the restaurant are absolutely spectacular. Prefer something a little more traditional? Upscale Mallorcan cuisine can be enjoyed at Stay Restaurant, set right on the pier.
Discover the very best of tapas dishes at Alchemy Restaurante, set within the main square of Santanyí. A wonderful spot to sit and watch the world go by as you sample delicious small plates.
Ready for an after-dinner drink in Palma? With so many choices across the city, you’ll never run out of options. Set within an airy mansion, Bar Abaco offers an excellent choice of cocktails and wines until the early hours of the morning.
We also love the laid-back vibes and friendly staff at Chapeau 1987—a real cosy spot to sit and enjoy a superb cocktail after a busy day.
