Majorca is a great island to explore by car. Use the Palm Tree as a starting point to explore the island. Majorca is not so big that you can easily get from one end to the other in a relatively short time. There are many landscapes to admire, plains to the south and east and peaks to the north.

Explore the Tramuntana peaks and name some of the beautiful villages you will find there. Especially interesting are Valdamossa, Fornalutx and Deja, all incredibly beautiful and well-maintained villages with excellent restaurants and cafes. Drive from Soller to Pollensa by road, and along the way you will be amazed by the stunning scenery. His colabra is worth a visit, if only to walk along the winding road that turns and meanders towards the sea. The route from Pollensa to Cape Formentor is one of the most beautiful roads on the island, and the lighthouse at the end offers stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea. Car rental is inexpensive, and there are many companies in Palma. You can also rent a car at the airport upon arrival.

Time away from the beach

Millions of people visit Majorca to spend time on the fantastic beaches located on the incredible coast of Majorca. Majorca has 262 beaches with a total length of 50 km. There’s a lot of beach there! The choice is spacious – from secluded beaches to wide sandy beaches or rocky coves.

The beautiful beaches of Majorca were again marked with the sapphire flag. Now there are 31 sapphire flag beaches on the island. The nearest beach in the center of Palma is just a few steps away and you can reach Anima Beach Club and Assaona Beach Club. A short drive from the hotel is a small beautiful beach in Illetas. This small sheltered beach with crystal clear water and soft golden sand is one of the most attractive beaches on the coast southwest of Palma.
