Although if you want to visit some of those charming towns in Mallorca that we mentioned earlier, Sant Elm may be one of the most beautiful. An old fishing village in the north of the island with just over 400 inhabitants. Alcudia may be another of your options, a walled town with forts of the time.
Mallorca also has many beautiful quaint towns and villages to explore. Sant Elm is a wonderful old fishing village in the north of the island with some unforgettable views. On the west coast of the island, you will also find the walled town of Alcudia with its Roman ruins.
For lovers of the sea
For lovers of the seas, there are of course plenty of options on this fantastic island. You can visit one of its many coves and cool off in its waters or you can turn the tables and hop on a boat in Mallorca to enjoy the experience from the water. You can swim in coves that are not accessible by land and enjoy unique views. A great place to rent a boat is with Samboat.
At Samboat we have a wide variety of boat rentals of different sizes. You can choose from smaller boats of around 5 meters for 5 people to boats more than 20 meters in length. All Samboat boats can be rented with or without a skipper and not all of them require a license to be driven. Head to Mallorca and cool off in its beautiful waters for the best experience of the island!
For those looking for a mountain in Mallorca
For all those who seek to be in contact with nature, but on its greener and more abrupt side, we have to recommend the Sierra de Tramontana. A large wooded mountain range, full of cliffs and with incredible views of the island and the sea. It is 1430 meters high and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
If you still want more mountain, visit the caves of Drach, Hams or Artá. 3 calcareous-soled caves with the famous stalagmites and stalactites, lakes and even underground cathedrals. All this in the town of Port de Manacor.
Mallorca is a holiday destination that truly offers something for everyone. No matter what sort of holiday you are looking for this jewel of the Med is a great choice!
