Mallorca, the largest island of the Balearic archipelago, is located in the Mediterranean Sea just east of mainland Spain. Mallorca is a popular holiday destination, just like the other Balearic islands of Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera. It has a population of 630.000, of whom most live in Palma, the capital city. Palma is a beautiful city with lots of restaurants, harbours, museums, the famous Le Seu Cathedral and the Bellver Castle, located on a hill three kilometers northwest of the city.

To really appreciate the whole island we recommend renting a car. With your motorised friend you are able to visit one of the most beautiful beaches of Mallorca: Es Trenc. There you can enjoy long stretches of golden sand and crystal clear waters. Es Trenc is a natural reserve.

On the north side of the island you will find the town of Alcúdia. The old town is surrounded by a 14th-century wall and it’s possible to walk on it and almost completely circle around the village. Inside the walls you will find a handful of popular, small restaurants famous for their great home-cooked food.

On Mallorca they also have the largest botanical garden of Europe. Ses Salines offers a collection of more than 1000 species of plants, trees, cacti and flowers. And finally, the historic train ride through the Mallorcan countryside from Palma to Sóller, the Ferrocarril de Sóller is spectacular!
