Welcome to Mallorca
Mallorca, the largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands, sparkles with a stunning coastline, staggering limestone bluffs, and Mediterannean charm. Crowned by the capital Palma de Mallorca, a walled city, the island nurtures secluded coves, impressive natural landscapes, and beaches surrounded by dramatic cliffs. Visitors can orient themselves on a hop-on hop-off bus tour of Palma to admire gothic Bellver Castle, Palma Arab Baths, and Palma La Seu Cathedral, which is illuminated at night. If your cruise ship docks in Mallorca for the day, opt for a guided tour that covers the stone city of Valldemossa and La Granja village; the stunning Soller Valley; and the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage site where thrill seekers can try cliff jumping. Bike and Segway tours take you through the winding streets of Palma’s Old Town and Gothic quarter; stop by family-friendly Palma Aquarium and the mysterious Caves of Drach, shrouded in stalactites and mysterious rock formations. Culinary tours invite foodies and friends to taste their way across the region: Spend the evening sampling tapas or sipping sangria in Palma, catch a Son Amar dinner and flamenco show, take a wine-tasting tour of Mallorca’s vineyards and wine cellars, or master Spanish dishes like gazpacho, paella, and Catalan cream during a cooking class.
