When we think of a nearby tourist destination, surrounded by the sea and with an outstanding leisure offer, one of the first options we consider is Mallorca. This Mediterranean island, the largest in the Balearic archipelago, brings together a valuable assortment of attractions that make it the preferred option for thousands of tourists every year.
According to surveys on travel websites, Mallorca is the preferred destination for German and British tourists who visit Spain in search of sun and sand. And we are not only talking about foreign visitors, the island has a huge pull also among the inhabitants of the peninsula.
What attractions does the island offer?
First of all, the weather. Mallorca has a typically Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and mild winters. This has favored that an important colony of foreigners, mainly British and German, has decided to leave their country of origin to settle on the island.
Another strong point of Mallorca are its 555 kilometers of coastline, with a highly contrasted orography. We can find everything from sandy beaches to rocky coves and impressive cliffs, such as those that exist in the Tramontana mountains, in the northwest of the island. Muro beach, to the north, is considered one of the most beautiful on the island.
For lovers of good food, Mallorca offers a gastronomic panorama gorgeous. Although we are talking about an island with abundant fish production, the number of dishes with meat as the main ingredient is surprising. Also noteworthy are the soups, sausages, such as the typical sobrasada, and sweets, such as the international Mallorcan ensaimada.
From the recreational point of view, the offer is wide and for all ages, both in the capital, Palma de Mallorca, and in the coastal towns. Two meeting points for young people are the areas of Magaluf and Santa Ponsa, full of bars and discos. And let’s not forget the island’s historical and architectural wealth.
