Chat - - Contents -

1 Caves of Drach Lo­cated on Mal­lorca’s east coast, the caves ex­tend for al­most 1,200m and the cav­ity is 25m high. Tours take about an hour and in­clude a clas­si­cal mu­sic con­cert and a boat trip across Lake Mar­tel! 2 Wine lovers’ haven The past few years have seen the is­land pro­duce some ex­cep­tion­ally good vin­tages, and they are quickly mov­ing up the ranks. The winer­ies, which are tucked away in the mid­dle of the is­land, make for a very peace­ful re­treat. 3 Sand and sea Mal­lorca’s beaches are one of the big­gest draws for tourists, but did you know that there’s an im­pres­sive 200 beaches all over the is­land, with 60 main re­sorts to choose from? From sandy coves to peb­bled beaches, it’s not hard to find one to suit your taste. Quick, grab your swim­suit!

4 City life On the south coast, the city of Palma is home to half of the is­land’s pop­u­la­tion. It’s of­ten com­pared to Barcelona thanks to its ar­chi­tec­ture and at­mos­phere, with lively restau­rants and nightlife.

5 Shop till you drop If you want to take some­thing truly Mal­lor­can home, try a visit to Teix­its Vi­cens, a fam­ily-owned ar­ti­san tex­tile shop in Pol­lença. Take a tour of the fac­tory to see these beau­ti­ful tex­tiles be­ing made, or browse the ex­quis­ite shop.

6 Cap de For­men­tor The ra­zor-edge cliffs and buck­led lime­stone peaks jut out to sea and, from a dis­tance, it looks just like a gi­ant wave is about to break! At 384m above sea level – the is­land’s high­est point – Cap de For­men­tor is se­ri­ously spec­tac­u­lar.
