Visited by the Germans, Irish, Polish, Dutch, the Scandinavians and the British, Mallorca is a popular tourist destination and is part of the Balearic Islands. With Palma as not only the islands capital but also the capital of the autonomous community, the island holds interesting history and diverse culture which explains why it is popular as a holiday destination.
With the name deriving from the 'insula maior' which means 'the bigger island', Mallorca, although a tourist destination isn’t as overdeveloped as it seems. With crystal-clear sapphire and turquoise waters that crash lightly on the white limestone cliffs which surround parts of the coastline, Mallorca also boasts white sandy beaches that can only be found on a Mediterranean island. Infinite fields swathed with olives, carobs, almonds, and vineyards stretch opulently across the island, with yachts taking moor up against the eastern and southern coastlines where parts are only accessible on foot. Its rustic and rural charm should be explored in your own sweet time, with picturesque views available through amazing hiking and cycling trails.
