Enjoy the best of Majorca

It’s all here! Find out how to create memories in Majorca, the finest in travel.

Majorca is located to the east of Spain and is the largest of the Balearic Islands. Palma de Mallorca is the main and also the largest city.

One of the highlights of my trip to Majorca is Abaco. It is for that reason that I feature Abaco, followed by some other great activities to do whilst in Majorca (Majorca is the Anglicised version of the Spanish spelling Mallorca).

Majorca is also of great physical and cultural significance. Majorca boasts a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range. The mountain range is the backbone of the island, running southwest-northeast. The UNESCO status was awarded on 27 June 2011.

To do

Palma de Mallorca Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour with Optional Boat & Belver Castle

If you’re a first-time visitor, we recommend getting yourself on the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus because it is the best platform from where to customize what you actually want to see. Your Hop-On Hop-Off Bus ticket gives you a perspective of where all the sightseeing is located. The tour is relaxed and you can pace it as and how it suits you.  Also, you can start your sightseeing immediately, even if only one or two attractions. Furthermore, your Hop-On Hop-Off Bus ticket provides you with plug-in earbuds connected to their “travel guide” (audio only)  and you have a choice of languages to pick from.

Hop on and off as many times as you wish for the duration of your ticket. What you don’t get to do… no stress. You can do it in your own time and with much greater confidence knowing more or less what to expect and where to go.

Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Travel Tip

If you sit upstairs in the open air, consider taking a hat and putting on some sunscreen. An extra jumper may be a good idea on windy or coolish days.

To eat and drink

Abaco

When you walk through the enormous wooden doors you enter into another world and another era. You are surrounded by smart waiters in uniform, flickering candles and classical music in the background.
