There are so many amazing things to do in Mallorca that we thought we would share our favourite things to do so you don’t miss out on anything. Check out our must-see recommendations. Send us a postcard as a thank you when you do.

Take a Balloon Trip
Without a doubt, this is the very best way of seeing the island. Mallorca Balloons runs flights from March to October, operating eight balloons, one of which is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the biggest balloon in Spain.

Discover Palma de Mallorca
Parts of Palma, such as La Lonja and the Old City, are steeped in history and photo-worthy architecture, and you can easily explore the narrow streets on foot. You can also go on a tour on a Palma City Sightseeing open-top bus which gives you a great overview of Mallorca’s capital.

Experience Unique Fornalutx
If you stay by the coast you’ll never see it, but Fornalutx is regarded by many as the most beautiful village on Mallorca, and one of the most stunning in Spain. You’ll find it deep in the Sierra de Tramuntana, with winding streets, narrow stone steps, and flowers and greenery everywhere. Houses are decorated with colourful painted tiles, some dating back to the 16th century.

Party with SINTILLATE
Following fifteen years of parties in the UK & twelve years in Marbella, SINTILLATE launched in Mallorca in May 2013 and continue to host every Thursday daytime and Saturday night at Nikki Beach. Also on Thursdays from 11pm we also host the stunning Pacha in Palma. New for 2015, we host the Sky Bar at the OD Port Portals. Join us every Friday from 8pm-12pm and enjoy beautful views over Mallorca's prestigous harbour.

Explore Mallorca's Coves
Mallorca has many beautiful coves to explore. Sa Calobra is a small and beautiful cove and can be reached through the Serra de Tramontana, one of the most spectacular routes in Spain. Sa Calobra has two bays embedded between walls of rock, one of which, the S'Olla forms a huge natural amphitheatre. From Sa Calobra, on foot, you can reach to another paradise, Torrent de Pareis.

Pamper yourself on a luxury spa day
Whether you are looking for a spa located in a hotel or you would rather visit an independent urban spa for a romantic weekend getway, Mallorca offers an ample selection of professional spas and retreats that are sure to leave you feeling revitalised.

Le Seu
Palma de Mallorca's Santa Maria cathedral is better known as Le Seu. The proud symbol of the city is an unmissable sight. Le Seu's unmissable in that you can't fail to notice it if you catch a bus from the airport to city centre. It's one of the first things you'll see when you get off. 

Cala Agulla Beach
Cala Agulla in the north-east of Mallorca boasts fine, golden-brown sand, perfect for a game of beach volleyball, and a surrounding pine forest. 520 metres long, it averages a width of 50 metres. Best accessed from Capdepera, 1.8km away, travel in the direction of Cala Ratjada before turning at the signpost which takes you to a pay-to-use car park.

Breakfast, the Mallorcan way
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and ensaïmadas have been the traditional breakfast pastry in Mallorca since the 17th century and has even been awarded protected regional food status by the EU. Forn Fondo on Calle Unió in Palma has been a bakery since 1911. Who better to make your breakfast?

Parc Natural de Mondrago
Located in the south-east of the island, Mondragó Natural Park suits both active and more laid back visitors. Go birdwatching and appreciate over 70 species of our feathered friends. That latter, meanwhile, can idle away their time on some of Mallorca's most idyllic beaches.
