Mallorca, a Mediterranean star that shines with its beautiful beaches and remote mountains, is also the largest island in the Balearic Islands archipelago, Spain. Here are some gorgeous images of the magnificent beauty that you should treat your eyes to, this summer. By Neha Pandey and Jasmine Kaur
Stone Cross of Santuario de San Salvador Monastery, Felanitx, Alcudia
The sanctuary of Sant Salvador, also known as Our Lady of Sant Salvador is situated on the top of the eponymous mountain, at 509 metres altitude, in the municipality of Felanitx. When you reach the top, the view will just take away your breath.
Palma De Mallorca Beach
Palma De Mallorca Beach has an impressive cultural life with numerous museums and theatres being the highlight during the day and beach side nightlife the main draw at night. The summers between May and August are the peak season to visit the beaches if you want to get a golden tan.
A View of Yachts Anchored off the La Tramuntana Mountain Range
The Serra de Tramuntana definitely deserves a visit during your Mallorca holidays; it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the cultural landscape category in 2011. Its Mediterranean agricultural landscape with olive trees, oranges, tomatoes and vines are beautiful.
Port de Soller, Mallorca, Spain
A wonderful little village situated in one of Mallorca’s most beautiful horseshoe harbours on the west coast, Port de Soller is surrounded by the Tramuntana mountains. You can have the magnificent mountain scenery and a sea view to boot.
With bigger and better beaches elsewhere, Porto Cristo has carved out a role as a friendly, family resort, taking advantage of a superb position at the end of a long, sheltered inlet. It’s a sweet little place, with a nice beach and a lovely blue-green sea.
Offering a fairly remote beach with lovely white sand and crystal clear waters, Cala Mesquida is a gem. It has all natural sand dunes and pine trees, with hills in the background that we leave you awestruck. It also has a small resort and lovely shops for tourists.
La Seu Cathedral
A famous medieval Gothic catholic cathedral, it was built by the Crown of Aragon on the site of a Moorish-era mosque and is 44 metres tall. Designed in the Catalan Gothic style but with Northern European influences, it also overlooks the Parc de la Mar and the Mediterranean Sea.
The winding road in Mallorca is one of the most fascinating route for travellers who like to embark on long drives. It might seem complicated and tough to drive, but if you are in Mallorca then this experience will stay with you for a lifetime.
Lighthouse at Cap Formentor
Cap de Formentor lighthouse is a spectacular lighthouse at an elevation of 384m above sea level located in the eastern end of Mallorca’s Formentor peninsula, on the northernmost point of the Balaeric Islands. The road to reach the lighthouse is asphalted. It is one of the most scenic drives in the world.
Port de Pollenca
A beautiful landscape of coastline with sharp cliffs at sunset near the city of Port de Pollenca makes for a breathtaking view. The city is split into several main areas: Pine walk, Boquer, Central, Siller, Pinaret, Llenaire and Gotmar. Famous painters such as the Argentinian Atilio Boveri and Hermenegildo Anglada Camarasa have lived in Port de Pollença and there is no doubt why.
