The Balearic Islands are among the most popular tourist destinations in Spain. This archipelago, situated in the western Mediterranean Sea, is made of seven beautiful islands: Mallorca, Minorca, Ibiza, Formentera, Cabrera, Dragonera and S’Espalmador. Palma de Mallorca is the capital and also the largest city of the Balearic Islands. It is also the perfect destination if you are looking for relaxation, beautiful landscapes and beaches, a sophisticated architecture, simplicity and complexity at the same time.
This beautiful city displays amazing tourist attractions that you should not miss: the Cathedral of Santa Maria (also known as La Seu ),the Almudaina Palace, the Arab Quarter, the Town Hall, the Bellver Castle and many others.
Most of them are situated in the Old City, where you can also find a lot of museums, art galleries, beautiful gardens, interesting buildings and churches. This city seems to be built for art and culture lovers.
You can choose to do a city tour with a local travel agency, but in my opinion it is better to visit all these wonderful places on your own, because it is very easy to find them and you can spend as much time as you want in each place.
An interesting thing that you could do there is to walk around the impressive harbor, where you can admire the diversity of the boats. You can also take the ferry if you want to visit other islands. You could for example visit Ibiza. You can easily get to Ibiza from Palma de Mallorca and you will definitely not regret this choice because Ibiza is an amazing island. You should know that you can buy tickets from the harbor, but only if you have the identification documents on you.
If you are spending your holiday on this island you should not miss a very special place called the Dragon Caves. Located on the eastern coast of the island, near Porto Cristo, the Dragon Caves are without doubt one of the most outstanding tourist attractions in Mallorca. The Dragon Caves are actually a group of four limestone caves connected to each other(The White Cave, The Black Cave, The Cave of the French and The Cave of Luis Salvador).
You will be delighted by the beauty and the uniqueness of this place. The classical music concert that you can enjoy when you visit the caves is what makes this place very special. The concert takes place on a boat situated in a specially designed gallery.
Another lovely place that you should not miss on this island is the beautiful Es Trenc Beach. This beach with white fine sand and crystal clear waters is the most famous and popular nude beach in Mallorca. The beach is divided into two sections, one for the nudists and the other one for the tourists who don’t want to practice nude sunbathing. This beach was listed as a natural reserve due to its beautiful landscapes.
It is said that you can feel the spirit of a country if you taste its traditional cuisine. Try their local food because it is delicious and diversified!
In my opinion you will have a fabulous experience on this island, because you will have the chance to do a lot of interesting things here.
