If you are going to travel to Mallorca and you want everything to be perfect, it is essential that you take into account a series of tips so that everything goes well. After a hard year of work, it is time to disconnect from the routine and what better way to do it than in Majorca.
It is one of the best tourist destinations in the country. But in order to be sure that your holiday will go well, we are going to show you a series of tips to make sure that you will have no problems during your trip.
1- Best time to travel to Mallorca
Undoubtedly, visiting Mallorca is a good option at any time of the year because the weather is always good. The most popular period is July and August. This is when there are more people and this means that you have to book in advance.
November to March can also be a good time to visit the island, although I personally recommend visiting in mid-season. There are fewer tourists and prices are lower. This period runs from April to October, with the exception of July and August.
2- Book a flight in advance
Flights to Majorca are in high demand. If you don’t want to miss out on a holiday on the island, the best thing to do is to book your flight in advance.
If you book in advance, you will not only secure your trip, but you will also be sure of much cheaper prices. That’s why the vast majority of tourists choose to book in advance.
3- Book your hotel in advance
As with planes, demand tends to be high. To make sure you get a place in a hotel to rest and also a good price, I invite you to make your reservation in advance.
However, before you make your reservation, I recommend that you make sure you know in which area of Mallorca you want to sleep. Depending on what you are going to do during your holidays, you will have to choose one option or another.
4- Rent a car
The best way to get around the island easily is to hire a car. It is true that you can use taxis or public transport, but there is nothing better than driving your own rented car.
Again, demand tends to be high, so you should book as soon as possible. If you don’t want to have any problems, I recommend renting a car through AutosMallorca. It is the most serious company you will find on the island. It has several decades of experience and you can rent a car from the airport itself. This way you can get off the plane and get into the car to enjoy your holiday from the very first moment.
Among other things, this company offers fully comprehensive insurance with no excess and unlimited mileage. These are two things that I recommend you take into account to eliminate the limits. Having unlimited kilometres will ensure you get around the island without any problems.
5- Visit the island in plenty of time
Depending on what your objectives are, you can visit the island in more or less days. In a weekend you will see little and enjoy little. For this reason, it is usually recommended to travel at least 5 days to start enjoying the island.
Of course, if you have the opportunity to visit the island for more days, all the better. This way you will be able to get much more out of it.
6- Make a list of the things you’re going to see
Depending on the number of days you are going to spend on holiday, I recommend you make a list of things to see. This way you’ll have everything organised and you won’t miss out on the things you’d really like to see. Maybe the secondary things you won’t see, but you will see the main things for you.
7- Visit the most beautiful villages in Mallorca
The city of Mallorca is really beautiful, but if you have the chance, I recommend you to visit some of the most beautiful villages on the island.
There are many options to choose from, but the best known are Valldemossa, Soller, Alcudia, Pollenca, Deia, Fornalutx and San Telmo. If you have the opportunity to see more, so much the better.
8- Visit the most beautiful coves and beaches
The island of Mallorca is surrounded by the sea and consequently has many coves and beaches. If you want to enjoy the sea, I invite you to visit Caló des Moro, Cala Agulla, Formentor, Cala Mondragó, Cala Varques, Cala Mondragó or Es Trenc among many others.
If the number of days does not allow you to visit all of them, I recommend you to see photos or videos and keep the ones you like the most. They are all beautiful, so you won’t have any problems in that respect.
9- Enjoy the island’s gastronomy
The island is not only about travelling and travelling, it also offers a really rich gastronomy. Thanks to tourism, you can find restaurants of all kinds. All you have to do is choose the one you like best and enjoy.
But I do recommend you try some of the island’s most typical products. I invite you to try coca de Trampó, arroz brut, frito mallorquín, tumbet, pa amb oli and Mallorcan soup.
10- Go on an excursion around the island
If you are going to visit the island for many days, I recommend you take one of the many routes that have already been designed. They are spectacular. For example, I loved the excursion to the Drach caves when I was lucky enough to visit the island.
But there are many activities to choose from. For example, we can choose to enjoy a tour of Palma de Mallorca, go on a boat trip…. There really are many alternatives and you will be able to enjoy everything if you plan it well.
If you take into account all the keys that we have shown you, it will be much easier for you to enjoy an unforgettable holiday. Without a doubt, Mallorca is the perfect destination to enjoy a great holiday.
