9 reasons to visit Mallorca in summer
Palma de Mallorca is one of the most highly valued local destinations in Europe. In recent years, the world-renowned newspaper The Times has chosen it as the best city to live in the world. Here, we will explain why the island of Mallorca has cast its spell on the whole planet.
The island is full of culture, white sand beaches with turquoise waters and can boast 300 days of sunshine a year. But there are many more reasons to visit Mallorca for those looking for a happy summer holiday.
1. Its unspoilt beaches and secret coves
The island of Mallorca has 269 beaches, some of which are considered the most beautiful beaches in the world: Cala de Torrent de Pareis, located in the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range, or Es Trenc, located in the south, where we can also find Cala Mondragó (or Ses Fonts de n'Alís), Sa Amador and Es Borguit. Es Caló Des Moro is the perfect example of a paradisiacal destination, and Formentor is one of the places for vacation chosen yearly by those seeking privacy during their stay in Palma de Mallorca.
2. Its leisure activities
If you are wondering what to do in Mallorca, one thing is for sure you won't get bored. The island of Mallorca is full of life, restaurants, nature and shopping areas. You will love strolling around the famous Puerto Portals, or Puerto Adriano harbours, where you can admire some of the most beautiful boats in the world or have dinner in the most famous restaurants in Mallorca.
One of the things to do on holiday in Mallorca that you cannot miss is spending a day by the sea at Purobeach Palma or Purobeach Illetas, our very own beach clubs in Mallorca.
