Add in top chefs, glorious hotels and some truly breathtaking natural scenery, from cathedral-like caves to castle-topped peaks and lonely lighthouses on rocky peninsulas, and you have everything you need for Balearic bliss.

Best things to do in Mallorca - Times Travel (1)

1. Take the train

For a novel way to explore the island, hop on the vintage train that connects Palma with the stone village of Sóller, in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains. Rattling its way along 100-year-old tracks that were once the easiest way to reach the remote village famed for its oranges, this wooden train promises sweeping mountain vistas, clattering along bridges and viaducts and through tunnels. In 25 minutes, you’re in pretty Sóller with its patio restaurants and winding streets. Why stop there? An old wooden tram connects Sóller to its sister fisherman’s village Port de Sóller, which has now become a smart marina and beach area.

2. Set sail on a catamaran

In the summer months the cyan waters of Mallorca are flecked with white sails. Make like the glitterati and take to sea to explore the island’s wild northern coastline on a glamorous catamaran. Set sail from Puerto Pollensa and enjoy panoramic views across the whole bay as well as back towards the limestone Cap de Formentor peninsula. You’ll drop anchor for a swim in the warm waters, and the catamarans also come with snorkelling gear, kayaks and even stand-up paddleboards. Each tour includes a barbecue lunch with drinks before returning back to port.

3. Visit a vineyard

Among the pines, almond and olive trees, this mountainous Balearic island is also home to vines which make rousingly good wines. Take a tour to visit Bodega Ribas, Mallorca’s oldest vineyard, in the famed Binissalem wine region, on the east coast, and learn about the winemaking process. Enjoy a sommelier-guided wine tasting accompanied by local jamon and olive oil then hop to a second winery aboard the Mallorca Wine Express to try several different vintages. Watch an alfresco paella cooking demonstration, then sit down to enjoy dinner accompanied by a flamenco show.

4. Pedal through Palma

Crowned by the majestic gothic cathedral of golden stone that looms above the city, looking wistfully out to sea, Palma de Mallorca is a handsome mix of architectural styles, right from its Arabic baths through to its cobblestone Old Town, baroque palaces and handsome modernista buildings. The best way to get around is on two wheels, pedalling from the buzzing eateries of Santa Catalina to the 15th-century La Lonja maritime exchange with its vaulted stone ceilings. Then you can follow the cycle route that takes you all the way along the city’s coast and around the bay.

5. Explore a mountain village

The rustic-chic stone houses of Deià, all honeyed stone with smart forest-green shutters, look like they belong in a painting, which is apt for this free-spirited artists’ enclave. Perhaps it is the higgledy-piggledy village, or the light up here in the mountains, but Deià has inspired many an artist and is where poet Robert Graves chose to call home. Not far away is Valldemossa, with its cobbled streets and quirky boutiques. It too had a famous resident; Frédéric Chopin stayed here in the winter of 1839 and recitals of his piano music are staged at the Real Cartuja monastery.

6. Plunge into the Cavern of the Dragon

Gliding beneath the spiked stalactites of the Cuevas del Drach is quite the experience. They hang down from the roof of the cavern, above one of the world’s largest underground lakes, not far from the eastern beach town of Porto Cristo. Visit the beautifully illuminated Baths of Diana, which are a brilliant turquoise hue. Each visit ends with a classical music concert beside the underground Lake Martel before rowing boats paddle you out beneath the spiked roof for a unique perspective of this otherworldly site.

7. Take a hike

Rising up from the west coast, the pine-topped Serra de Tramuntana is a walker’s paradise, laced with hiking trails that take in rugged coastlines, mountain villages and panoramic Mediterranean vistas. You can choose to walk for a few hours and stop for lunch at a perfect cala, or follow the GR221 hike that wends its way from Pollensa in the northeast to Puerto d’Andratx in the southwest. These peaks have been listed by Unesco for the farmed terraces, cobbled road network and dry-stone structures that represent centuries of agricultural life in the mountains.

8. Explore Roman history

The walled city of Alcudia is a joy to explore, a maze of medieval streets wrapped up in sturdy battlements. First settled as far back as 2000 BC, it became an ordered town under the Romans. The town was later sacked by the Vandals, renewed by the Moors, and added to following the Spanish conquest. But head outside the medieval walls and you’ll find the remnants of its Roman past with the ruins of a 2,000-seat theatre, the Forum and Roman villas as well as the artefacts gathered in the on-site Museu Monogràfic de Pol-lèntia.

9. Discover hidden calas

There are 262 beaches in Mallorca, many of them tucked into its rugged coastline as coves — or calas — surrounded by cliffs and pines. Part of the joy of hiring a car is parking up and following a winding path until the scenery opens up into a picture-perfect beach. Calo des Moro has waters of the clearest blue and Cala Mondrago is set within a national park of the same name. For a truly amazing drive, follow the roads that wind though the mountains and lead to pretty little Sa Calobra, where the cliffs rise up like vast stone walls.

10. Try coasteering

Part climbing adventure, part scrambling, abseiling and cave swimming, coasteering is the adrenaline-pumping way to explore Mallorca’s thrillingly serrated coastline. There will be cliff-jumping, the chance to soar above the water on a zip-line and caves to explore as you discover some of Mallorca’s least-visited coastlines, away from the beaches and tourists. The clifftop views are breathtaking and the cerulean sea is inviting, with a boat on hand to whisk you between remote spots.

11. Go snorkelling

With so many miles of spectacular coastline, Mallorca is ideal for snorkelling, whether you want to set off straight from the beach or hop on a boat to a more deserted spot. The island of Sa Dragonera is worth a visit to swim among barracuda and monk fish, while Cala Sant Vincenç reveals a colourful world of sea moss and anemones, and the smaller inlets and calas that can only be reached by boat promise amazing visibility and caves to explore.

12. Eat your way around Palma

This bijou capital has a vibrant restaurant culture, with patio restaurants that buzz with conversation late into the night. And with a patchwork of farms across the island, and the freshest seafood, great dining is guaranteed.

The island produces silky olive oils, almonds, citrus fruits and apricots, as well as peppers, mushrooms and aubergines.

14. Tour the salt flats

In the southeast of the island, salt has been farmed since the 8th century BC. Set behind the sand dunes of glorious Es Trenc beach, you’ll find a protected area of salt flats which have created a unique habitat for a whole variety of sea birds. Here, a series of salt pans give rise to Mallorca’s high-quality salt, with the premium Flor de Sal hand-harvested by dedicated salineros.

15. Find the perfect sunset spot

Whether you want to toast a fiery sunset with a crisp gin and tonic, or escape to a hilltop where it’s just you and the view, there are plenty of options on Mallorca. In Port Sóller, the Cap Gros lighthouse is an idea spot to watch the sky painted orange, with views out to sea and across the pretty marina town. For a buzzy atmosphere, try Roxy’s Beach Bar in Puerto Portals, or Palma’s trendy beach spot Assaona. Alternatively, join a boat trip and you can head out to sea for sunset, dinner and cocktails.

17. Go birdwatching

Switch up Mallorca’s coastline for glorious S’Albufera, the most important wetlands in the Balearic Islands. Here you can follow a network of paths on foot or by bike to spot everything from purple heron and marsh harriers to warblers, flycatchers and even golden orioles. There are viewing platforms and hides that you can use to spot marsh terns and waders, as well as egrets, moustached warblers and crested coots. Start with the exhibition in the visitor centre, which is where you can also pick up your free permit and a map to follow the marked routes.

18. Head high in a hot-air balloon

The beauty of Mallorca’s coastline is best appreciated from the air. While you may enjoy a glimpse from the plane on arrival, a morning or afternoon flight over the island in a hot-air balloon is more relaxing and far more sedate. Head north and you can drift over the rugged, unspoilt scenery with a glass of champagne and tapas in hand, and a guide to point out the key sights. The mountains seem to plunge right down to sea level, with hidden coves tucked among the pines and the majestic Cap Formentor peninsula jutting into the sea.

19. Kayak the coast

There’s something so serene about gliding along a pristine stretch of coastline, not a soul in sight, just the sound of paddle on water. Navigate your way along the Natural Park Llevant coast and you can look back to the lush mountains, nose into caves and stop at deserted beaches that can only be reached by boat. Beginners may want a shorter trip, while more advanced kayakers can head out for the whole day with a stop-off for food.

20. Meet Mallorca’s artists

There’s something about the light in Mallorca, that arresting juxtaposition of mountain and coast, that has inspired generations of artists and writers to call the island home. Perhaps the most famous among them was Joan Miró, who set up a studio just outside Palma to create his surrealist pieces. The workshop now forms part of the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation and you can visit to tour the buildings and learn more about his work. There are many other artists opening up their studios as well, from Barbara Weil, near Puerto d’Andratx, to the Yannick and Ben Jakober Foundation in Alcudia, where you can see the artists’ extensive collection.
