5 Things to Do in Majorca Spain


Majorca is the largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands and one of the best locales in the Mediterranean for luxurious sun-soaked escapes.

But it’s not just all lying in the sand sipping sangria on Majorca.

(Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

The island is home to a multitude of things to do in between those beach sessions, with the following being five of the best.

Gaze at Gothic Splendor

La Seu is the Majorcan capital of Palma’s crown jewel. This domineering cathedral captivates with its sandstone shade—which looks especially enchanting at sunset—and fascinating story.

You will spot rows of spindly spires and soaring buttresses on the exterior of Le Seu. These were meant to send a strong signal about the military strength of Palma’s medieval rulers to approaching ships. The inside is just as interesting, featuring design accents by the renowned architect Antoni Gaudi.

If your interest is piqued by the history on display at the cathedral, then also visit the round defensive tower of Bellver Castle and admire the soaring view from its ramparts.

Go Boho in Deia

Idyllic Deia is surrounded by olive groves in the shadow of Teix Mountain on the west side of Majorca. The village gained fame when English poet Robert Graves moved here in 1932—followed shortly by dozens of his eccentric friends.

While you might find more millionaires strolling the streets than starving artists these days, a walk through Deia’s gallery-lined lanes is the perfect way to spend a day. For a nightcap, you can’t do any better than an al fresco meal at Ca’s Patro March. This waterside eatery serves us fresh seafood and breathtaking sunset views.

Take the Train to Sóller

The town of Sóller sits in a fertile valley that overflows with citrus fruit trees. These fruits helped the town flourish and this wealth helped to pave the way for a train connection to Palma.

The narrow gauge line is now strictly a tourist service and provides a scenic tour of the majestic Majorcan countryside. The wood-paneled cars start their journey in Palma and wind their way through the hills and over beautiful bridges and vintage viaducts to Sóller.

Peruse Pollentia

Pollentia was the Roman Empire’s base in Majorca and today its ruins provide a history-filled day out. While excavations are still ongoing, arguably the most fascinating section is the residential district called La Portella.

Here you will find a Roman Theater and Forum (the latter complete with ancient shops and a temple), a set of crumbling columns and the Casa dels Dos Tresors (a typical Roman residence).

Cool down at the Coves del Drac

These subterranean caves on the East Coast of Majorca offer the antithesis to the bright skies above; And after a few days in the sun, you might just find their cool temperatures refreshing.

Inside Coves del Drac, you will find a world stacked with stalagmites in a wide range of shapes, colors and sizes. Multilingual guides walk you through this magnificent world with the tour ending with a classical music concert on Europe’s largest underground lake.
