Mallorca Travel

A small reminder of some of the things you can not miss when you visit Palma de Mallorca


The fresh fish dishes are always a good and smart choice, you can also go for the numerous lamb and pork dishes, or if you feel in a lighter kind of mood you may want to try the Tumbet, a delicious vegetable dish, the Trampos, which are vegetable pizza slices, the local Grimalt cheese or a wholesome rice soup. For dessert, you may like a slice of Turrón, nougat handmade from the local almonds, the traditional pudding or the local cheesecake. This is just a sample of the wonderful Majorcan diet that you will find visiting the local shops and restaurants along the island, many of the tours offered by Majorca airport transfers focus on delivering the best culinary experience

Many celebrities have taken to visit and even buy property in Majorca, charmed by the wonders of this island. People like famous actor Michael Douglas along with Catherine Zeta-Jones, supermodel Claudia Schiffer, British magnate Richard Branson, tennis player Rafael Nadal, singer-musician Annie Lennox, actors Joseph Fiennes and Pierce Brosnan, just to name a few, all have or have had properties in Majorca and enjoyed its paradise-like qualities, many more visit frequently also, falling prey to its natural beauty, they all sure sound like great company to be in

Art is also very appreciated in Majorca, many galleries specializing in Spanish contemporary art, some devoted to specific artists. There are galleries devoted to Joan Miró and Salvador Dalí, to name just two in the Palma region. In Soller, you can find the wonderful Can Prunera art museum, and at the train station, the Township holds a permanent Joan Miró exhibition free of charge. It’s no secret most of us get caught up in a shopping spree while travelling, especially in somewhere like Majorca, and the center for shopping culture in the island is definitely Palma. From the well-known brands the high and luxury street to the independent hip boutique offering their take on local fashion and style.

Every week you’ll also find markets in every town selling local goods, from food to shoes, you can take your time and find that special piece of memorabilia you want. Port Andratx and Cala D’Ors are also very renowned popular places for shopping.

Wine and Food!


Perhaps you’d enjoy some good wine after a long day of shopping? Well, can provide services to the many Vineyards open for public around the town of Binissalem, or around the town of Felanitx, in an area called Pla & Llevant. Both are centers of fine wine in Majorca. The third area known for their winemaking is at the foothills of the Tramontane Mountains, mainly in the north. The producers are very enthusiastic about their product and you can spend almost an entire day just visiting the vineyards.

Never mind sightseeing and wine tasting, no travel is complete without good food.  So, surely even before you book your Palma airport transfers you’ve already seen every possible restaurant you’ll want to try.

Start your day with an Ensaïmada, a delicious spiral yeast bun dusted with icing sugar, typical of the island. Some say the secret is that the sea air benefits the rising dough and that’s why attempts to make them outside haven’t been successful. With enough energy you can begin your day as you desire but make sure you try the Fideuà for lunch- the local paella but instead of rice use noodles.
