Your holiday: Mallorca
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.
