Mallorca, the best destination for those who love hiking

There is an extensive list of superb travel destinations in Spain, but Mallorca is one of those destinations that provides an array of possibilities for a traveller looking for “a bit of everything”. Pretty in winter and more lovely than ever during the spring season we’re experiencing right now: the largest of the Balearic Islands is a place that offers more than just the well-known beaches with white sand and turquoise waters, and the popular nightlife… yes, that nightlife that tempts younger travellers more and more as the summer season approaches.

The island of Mallorca is a paradise filled with amazing nature. This is a place where you can lose yourself with no fear among the narrow paths leading up to the Tramuntana mountain range. The mountains award you with exquisite panoramic views filled with that special light that you can’t find anywhere but here, in our beloved Mediterranean archipelago. It’s an exceptional place that is made even more interesting if you’re planning to enjoy a few days  hiking in the best of settings.

The Tramuntana Mountains

Proudly holding the UNESCO award as a World Heritage, the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range is the perfect place to enjoy high-altitude hiking. This is where you can discover gems such as Deià, Valldemossa, Fornalutx and Sóller, and where travellers can enjoy places of extreme beauty that can still (luckily) be referred to as ‘intact, or not too exploited’.

Enjoy the paths running near the well-known Sóller train line, or get lost along the famous route ‘Pedra en Sec’, the Dry Stone Route; those are two of the many ‘musts’ that deserve to be part of the to-do list for any fairly serious hiker who heads over to Mallorca.

The magic of Cura and Randa

Guarding the so-called Mallorcan Plain are Cura and Randa, the base for another two routes that deserve a visit if you come here for hiking. The beautiful monastery Cura (where you can eat, enjoy the views and even spend the night listening to an indescribable silence) awaits at the end of the hike, providing you with a unique view of the Serra de Tramuntana (to the right) and the Llucmajor coastline (to the left).

Hotels on Mallorca

One of the keys to any trip being a success lies in knowing how to choose your hotel with care. How can last-minute surprises be avoided? Go for one of the hotel chains that’s been around forever, such as Sol Hoteles, a group that offers you perfect hotels such as Sol Katmandu Park Resort and Sol Beach House where you can get away from the routine and enjoy a well-earned rest after you’ve been hiking through the more rural parts of the island.

A Holiday in Mallorca with an Irish Flavour

Apart from being a spring month and a precursor to the long-awaited Easter holidays, the month of March in places like Mallorca combines a lot of interesting options and lets you enjoy experiences that go beyond the traditional Easter processions we normally see this time of year.

March is not only the ideal month for spring excursions (that work to well with the ideal climate on the Balearic Islands), it is also a time of year when festivals from other countries have a strong presence on the islands. So much that they form part of their very character. The most prominent one? Without doubt, it’s one with a clear Irish flavour that comes dressed in intense green. Yes, in March Mallorca is the island of St. Patrick, the Irish patron saint.

Even if this Irish festival is celebrated in many corners of the island, it’s the top bars in Palma (such as Shamrock and Three Lions) and their neighbouring venues that bring you the best festival atmosphere, combining music, craft beer, tradition and good fun. That said, if you’re wanting to really go green this day and enjoy it as never before, you should definitely head to Santa Ponça, St. Patrick’s Mallorcan Kingdom.

A fun-filled weekend

As a couple, with friends or family: the St. Patrick Festival comes to Santa Ponça the weekend of March 18 and 19. Two days during which residents dress in shades of green , letting you enjoy proper Irish music as well as craft beer and typical dishes from the emerald island.

Even if any time of day is a good time to enjoy the perks of this festival (a festival that almost counts as a local one), it might be best to choose noon to join the drumming, the parades and live concerts.

Hotels in Santa Ponça

For all those who have chosen to travel to Mallorca during March this is what we recommend: don’t miss the fun of celebrating S:t Patrick in the Mallorcan town Santa Ponça.

It is a lovely coastal village located in the municipality of Calvià – less than 15 minutes from Palma, the Mallorcan capital –  where you can find high-quality hotels such as Pirates Village Apartments (for those travelling as a family) and the Hotel Piscis Adults Only. Two great establishments, guaranteed by the quality seal provided by Gran Isla Hotels.

A vacation of relax and disconnection in the North of Majorca

Although often it is thought a vacation of sun and beach recovers body’s lost energies; the thing is that job stress, pace of life and social pressures make that, in many occasions, we need an extra off, an extra not given by sleeping or sunbathig.

That’s exactly why Majorca is a perfect destination to two hundred percent. A place full of natural cards (coves, cliffs, and uniques sunsets as protagonists) that provide wonderfully to disconnection. Although the whole island offers a thousand and one plans to enjoy, the North of Majorca offers the most successful rate to those looking for a full-fledged relax.

alcudia beach

Body and mind relaxing views

Less noisy than the Southern area of the island, the North of Majorca is perfect for those seeking a quiet vacation in couple, with friends or family. With natural treasures such as Playa de Muro or Alcudia old town, Northern Majorca is a guarantee of rest. Good account of it give these recommendations:

1. Playa de Muro

Although Majorca is full of idyllic beaches, Playa de Muro is, no doubt, one of the most beautiful. A perfect place to find the peace many people need, to practice water sports (as surf, windsurf, or paddle surf) or taste meals with friends or in couple in any of its bars. The best? The Ponderosa, the Miama Beach Club or Can Gavella.

Go to the beach early and enjoy a morning walk when the Sun begins to shine is, no doubt, one of those unique plans to live yes or yes on a visit to the North of the island.

2. Son Serra de Marina Beach

Wild, authentic and highly recommended, that’s Son Serra Marina Beach, another one of those cards that the North of Majorca brings, and a real natural treasure. Frequented by surfers and families seeking to spend the day under the Sun, this beach is ideal for those looking for remote coastal areas.

Giving a spa, the perfect alternative

What about to put the finishing touch to a relaxing day in our crystal Mediterranean waters with a spa session? For those seeking more than a beautiful landscape, the island has plenty of hotels with a unique offer of spa and wellness. Ferrer Hotels chain is a perfect example.
With two main hotels in the North of Majorca such as Hotel & Spa Ferrer Janeiro and Hotel & Spa Ferrer Concord, this hotel chain not only offers establishments in beautiful places (such as Playa de Son Bauló, in Can Picafort), but also a high quality spa.

Its location close to the centre of Palma (within 20 minutes by car) and its high quality hotel, restaurant and leisure services make it one of the best holiday places in the island.

Disconnect from the world: escape to Mallorcan countryside

Sometimes disconnection is not so easy as it seems. Telecommunication, Internet and Social Media lead us to be constantly in touch and explain what we do, where we are and where we go. That affects our health, so you should stop at least for a while and find a place to relax and rebalance yourself, enjoying life as it deserves it.

Today we suggest you disconnect from everything and take a 4 days countryside break. We have chosen Mallorca because it is one of the most versatile holiday destinations and easily accessible by plane from almost any airport in Spain and abroad.

We plan our break in Spring -early summer, the perfect time to explore the charming places of the island calmly and the weather is perfect to enjoy outdoor activities avoiding the summer heat waves.

We want to travel to the countryside close to Palma in Mallorca, so we can reach the city easily in case we would like to enjoy urban life just for a while like tourists nosing out locals’ daily life.

agrotourism in Mallorca

agrotourism in Mallorca

There are several accommodations in this area: hotels and beach resorts, apartments, traditional country houses… We chose a paradisiac agrotourism in Mallorca. Son Julia Boutique Hotel, a country hotel between Palma and Llucmajor built in a typical Mallorcan finca and surrounded by meadows, mills and olive groves. The hotel boasts impressive gardens -gardening is really important for them- and offers a wide range of services: spa, gourmet gastronomy, sports and wedding venues.

Choosing a hotel with high quality services is essential, even if the budget rises a bit, because it guarantees us total disconnection and avoids us to go to the city when we get bored. Breaking with routine is not easy and we have to make great efforts to avoid doing the same: computer, handy and so on. Therefore, sport, countryside, blue sky, crystal water coves, gourmet food, daily interesting plans…
The recipe is really simple and even if it could be difficult to decide to take a 4 days break, we must realise our body and mind limits and take care of ourselves. Money doesn’t buy happiness, but buying a flight ticket and booking an agrotourism in Mallorca is the best way to find happiness. A little indulgence from time to time is good for us. Let’s have a happy disconnection.

Hotels for sport lovers in Majorca

Sport fever is significantly increasing in Spain. And few are those who have a hobby that makes them sweat and break the sedentary lifestyle of our routine. Joggers, football Player, ramblers and hikers, surfers…Everyone seeks to change their life rhythm, inside or outside the gym, and there are many of those who enjoy their holiday balancing their body and soul.

Following this trend that seems to be here to stay (hope it last, because it’s healthy), the hotel industry has responded and there are many hotel chains have decided to transform their classic hotels and turn them intoreal oasisof wellbeing and sports. One of these firms is, undoubtedly, Garden Hotels, with their sport hotels in Majorca, has marked a before and after in the way of understanding holidays.

The main idea is offerall kindof services and amenities specially designed for sports enthusiasts in the hotel: from stationary bicycles to fitness rooms and complete sessions with professional trainers outdoors. These accommodations, like the Playa de Muro hotel ( Playa Garden Selection Hotel & Spa ) that have combined the regular services of a holiday beach hotel in the north of Majorca with the specific services of a real sports centre, routes, equipment , special discounts for activities on the surrounding areas …

Also, Garden Hotels wanted to go a little further and have brought to light Garden Sports, a unique idea of accommodation for sportspeople who can book with advantages in all its facilities and enjoy the best service during competitions or training trips.

In fact, some of their hotels in Majorca –the last refurbished– have turned into authentic benchmarks for those looking for original holidays. A good example of this is Katmandú Park Hotel, a mix of accommodation and theme park in front of Magaluf beach, in Calvià coast.

Beside you can find other renowned hotels such as Sol Wave House, which boasts a big pool in front of the sea with artificial waves where you can practice surfing, and Sol Beach House, which isresult of a complete refurbishment of the old 4-star hotels this company had in this beach area of Majorca.
