Our 9 favourite spots in Mallorca

Samir Nezic June 26, 2019

Mallorca started their tourism efforts more than 100 years ago, and it’s still paying off today. Many first-time visitors are surprised by the size of the airport - on some days the third most busy in Europe - but the island still offers many attractions hidden from the mainstream flow. Here are some of our best!


1. Bar Esperanza, Ses Covetes (Es Trenc)

David: “This is as close to Ibiza that you can get on Mallorca. I love the laid-back vibe, the food is fantastic and it’s the best beach on the island.” Info and map

2. El Sol - Sunshine Bar (Alcudia Bay)

Anders: “I can’t quite explain why I like this place. It just has a vibe that makes me stay, relax and never want to leave. Good food, great drinks, happy people.” Info and map

3. Bodega Ribas (Consell)

David: “This is our absolute favorite winery on the island. Their rosé, especially, is light and crisp, perfect for long summer days. You can sample all their wines and they do nice tours as well. Info and map

4. El Camino (Palma)

Anders: “It’s surprisingly hard to find good tapas in Palma, so we were ecstatic when Camino opened last year. You eat along the bar and you can’t book ahead, so it’s ideal for two people.” Info and map

5. Béns d’Avall, Alconasser (Sóller)

Anders: “The restaurant is one of the most celebrated on the island, but we actually go for the rocky beach below. You find the path down right after the restaurant terrace. Most days you can be completely alone.” Info and map

6. Platja de Formentor

David: “If you continue north, past the Sol Y Sombra restaurant, the beach narrows to a thin strip with just enough space for you to lie down under the fragrant pine trees. The water is crystal clear.

7. Finca Son Mico (Sóller)

David: “Two French sisters run this amazing little café at their mother’s finca in the mountains outside Soller. Their signature quiche is spectacular and their pies - especially the lemon merengue - are worth every calorie.”
Info and map

8. Cassai Gran Cafe (Salines)

Anders: “You can hang here from breakfast till late night. Food, vibe, clients and staff all meld together into a cool, happy mix. And they have a beach house too!” 
Info and map

9. Ca'n Llimona (Sóller)

David: “Our friend Claudia from Argentina makes the most fabulous ravioli every day, filled with all kinds of goodies. It is a cute restaurant with tables both indoors and in the courtyard, but I prefer to pick them up and quickly simmer them at home to serve with some fresh tomato salsa and heaps of parmesan.”
