Where better to start than the island's capital? Palma is a bustling city with something for everyone. If you're travelling with the kids, there are two waterparks nearby, Aqualand and Western Water Park. The island's best golf courses, part of the Arabella Golf complex, are near the capital, making it perfect for a golfing getaway, too. Looking for cheap holiday breaks in Mallorca? Then Palma is also a good choice. The city centre is walkable, and the outskirts have great bus connections, so you'll save money on transport. You can stretch the pennies even more by dining in spots like Mercat 1930, a cheap and cheerful food hall with dishes from around the world at budget prices.

The nearby Tramuntana Mountains are ideal if you'd like to go hiking, while the beach of Cala Deià offers pristine waters to splash about in, against a dramatic backdrop of rocky cliffs.


If you like towns but the hustle and bustle of Palma is too much for you, then try Pollença. In the northeast of the island, this town preserves its traditional character, with a charming main square and delightful stone buildings. Climb the 365 steps from the Plaça Major to the very top of the town for the best views. On Sunday mornings, the central square holds a fabulous food market, where you can pick up the freshest produce from around the island, as well as local specialities like the soft sobrassada sausage or decadent Mallorcan honey. Port de Pollença has white sand beaches and some lovely trails for gentle strolls under pine trees.


The south of Mallorca tends to attract a more sedate crowd than Palma. Not into the party scene? Try Santanyí. Its gold stone architecture is sure to charm you, and there are some fascinating old sights like the historic city wall and the Porta Murada gate, originally built to defend the town against pirate attacks. Santanyí is also the best spot on the island for snorkelling. Cala Santanyí is the town's main beach and is known for its exceptional water quality and beautiful coral reefs. You should also visit Cala Mondragó, set inside the wetland natural park of Mondragó.
