An alternative guide to Majorca


The largest of the Balearic Islands, Majorca (or Mallorca) has more on offer than just tourist resorts, high rises and heaving beaches. Check out a few of the options here to get a new view of an old favorite.

Swim with Sharks

At Palma Aquarium, dive deep into literally millions of liters of salt water with Tiger and sandbar sharks. If you prefer a slightly less up-close-and-personal encounter, you can always bunk down with your little ones in the ‘Big Blue’ for an aquatic sleepover that doesn’t involve a wetsuit!

Go back to basics in a horse-drawn cart

But not so basic that there isn’t Sangria available… Take a 90-minute journey into the Majorcan countryside on a wild-west horse carriage while you’re serenaded by live country music. The adventure is punctuated with BBQ and line-dancing at the Rancho Grande!

Get lost with the kids!

The Amaze’s Libertines in Alcudia is a giant wooden maze designed for the whole family to enjoy. Get lost in the twists and turns of this 1356m labyrinth and discover the hidden treasures along the way.

Wander through Santa Catalina

A gorgeous neighborhood in Palma, Santa Catalina is the old fishermen’s quarters and is now home to the massive indoor market, Mercat de Santa Catalina – the oldest food market in Palma. Grab some lunch to go and wander through the tree-lined streets with your love.
