Highlights of Palma de Mallorca
Despite its reputation for partying until the break of dawn (although you can do that too!), Palma de Mallorca also offers plenty to do for those who want more of a low-key trip away. So, what is there to do?
1. Palma Old Town
Palma's heritage has Arabic and Roman influences. Get the full historical experience by joining a walking tour and delight in its diverse architecture!
2. Caves of Drach
The otherworldly Caves of Drach will add an unusual element to your trip. Pearls have traditionally been sourced here, and it's home to Lake Martel, the largest underground lake in Europe.
3. Rancho Grande
You don't have to alright know your way around a saddle to enjoy a day of horse-riding at Mallorca's Rancho Grande. It's the ultimate way to take in Mallorca's rural beauty.
Situtated upon a hill at the feet of the Tramuntana Mountains, the Mallorcan village of Valldemossa is a slice of Mediterranean paradise. It's no wonder Frederic Chopin wintered here.
5. Kathmandu Adventure Park
This family-friendly park - which claims to have been blown in straight from Tibet - boasts a 4D movie theater, mini-golf, and lazer tag among other crazy ways to spend a day.
If the ocean's curious fauna delights you, get yourself to Mallorca's Aquario! It boasts Europe's biggest shark tank and you can even swim with manta rays!
7. Puerto Pollensa
Thought the sea couldn't get any bluer? Let Formentor and Puerto Pollensa prove you wrong! Take a boat trip, stroll along the perfect beach, and enjoy your afternoon.

What people are saying about Palma de Mallorca
Wonderful day in an idyllic little bay with some cliffs perfectly suitable for starters and intermediates. The waters were crystal clear and so soothing, one just doesn't want to get out anymore. We were a family of 4 and Jose our guide was a super guy!! Friendly, patient, knowledgeable and having safety as a priority. (immediately followed by having fun and making sure we'd enjoy every minute) Tracy, please thank him again for doing his utmost to make it enjoyable for us. He supported us every step of the way and reassured us if any of the party members got a little scared. Instructions were clear and the backgrounds as to why were also explained. We did some cool jumping ranging between 3 and 7 meters height, rock climbing around some protruding rocks a few meters above the sea and topped it off with a 10 meter abseiling straight back into the clear blue and welcoming waters. We surely recommend anyone to take this trip, it shows you sights you don't see if you set out by yourself.
Wow! What a fantastic experience. Anna welcomed us and made us comfortable as we were early. From walking in the door to riding out on the quads the staff make you feel confident and welcome. Our tour guide was amazing, supportive and kept us entertained throughout. I can’t not justify how beautiful the tour is with words. An incredible experience. I would highly recommend, I can’t wait to return myself!! P.S always a bonus when your hunk of a tour guide cliff jumps with you!
This was a great experience. We sailed near the coast of Palma and stopped several places to swim. The boat had good inexpensive drinks, great food, and a great staff. I’d definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting. And there was one woman from Germany that I wish I spoke too. She was wearing a white 2 piece bathing suit :).
They cancelled my first booking, the food was not too great, you have to wear a mask almost all the time, and they don’t sell alcohol during the trip :( But in spite of all that, the trip was amazing and totally worth the time. One of the best experiences from my trip to Mallorca :)
Amazing trip, perfect length. Gorgeous location for swimming for a good length too. Food was delicious for the meat eaters however our vegetarian friend only had salad for lunch, on the boat we were asked if we had informed them but were not given an opportunity on the site to do so.
