Beyond Sun and Scenery: My Personal Mallorca Favorites

Mallorca, an island of enchanting beauty, has captured my heart with its rich tapestry of experiences that extend far beyond its breathtaking coastlines and majestic mountains. While the beaches and landscapes are undeniably alluring, what truly captivates me is the island's fascinating traditions, vibrant culture, and authentic encounters that lie hidden amidst its charming corners.

From the lively festivals that celebrate centuries-old customs to the warm hospitality of the locals, Mallorca offers a unique blend of tradition and modernity that never fails to leave a lasting impression on its visitors.

As an ardent explorer of the island, I've discovered a plethora of hidden gems that have become my personal favorites. For the ultimate experience, I recommend visiting in May-June or September-October when the island boasts a quieter charm, allowing you to savor its essence at a leisurely pace.

During these shoulder seasons, Mallorca emanates a different kind of magic. The weather is pleasant, the crowds have receded, and the island seems to come alive with authenticity. It is during these months that the true soul of Mallorca reveals itself, inviting you to delve into its unique culture and heritage.

Step beyond the typical tourist spots, and you'll find yourself immersed in captivating traditions and events that showcase Mallorca's rich history. The island's fiestas are a spectacle of colors and exuberance, where locals and visitors alike come together to celebrate with music, dance, and traditional cuisine.

if you're seeking more than just sun-kissed beaches and lofty peaks, venture beyond the obvious and let Mallorca's fascinating tapestry of culture and heritage sweep you off your feet. Embrace the island's authentic charm, and you'll discover why it holds a special place in the hearts of those who seek more than just a picturesque destination. Mallorca is an island of genuine experiences, and I can't wait to share my personal favorites with you.

Favourite place to swim: The very best places we like to keep a secret ;) But close to Palma, the small beach next to Bugambilia in Cas Català is a favorite with small kids. The small restaurant is also very nice for a paella and some drinks while overlooking the beach and gorgeous sea in the bay of Palma. I heard amazing things about the natural pools at Es Trenc Ses Salines but have not been here (yet). 
Favourite market: We love to go to Soller for the Saturday farmers market. We go early in the morning and buy local cheese, olives and ham at the Plaza. It´s also a great place to find easy sundresses and hats. I love the quality of the  Menorcan sandals and espadriles at Savarca.
Favourite cafe or bakery:  Whenever I get Swedish (surdegsbröd) bread or kanelbulle cravings, I go to Fika Farina cinnamon buns close to Plaza Major. 
Favourite restaurant in Palma: I love De Tokio a Lima restaurant located at the first-floor teracce at the 5-star Can Alomar boutique hotel. Other fave spots right now is Vandal Palma in Santa Catalina, fine dining but with an upbeat, cool ambiance.  
Can Uetam in Valldemossa has an amazing view, enjoy a chilled glas of rose and their excellent tapas. 
Best month of the year on Mallorca: June or September. The weather is great and you get to experience the island vibe as a local. 
Whats your favourite hotel on the island: La Residencia in Deia. I'm also super curious to check out the holistic retreat Cal Reiet in Santañy and Richard Bransons hotel long in the making Son Bunyola.

Where to shop: Among my cherished picks, you'll find Rialto Living, Gordiola, and Corner, nestled in the heart of Palma. For exceptional textiles, Teixits Vicens in Pollenca is a definite go-to. Meanwhile, in Port Andratx, La Palmera, a charming boutique owned by a friend, showcases a hand-picked assortment of exquisite choices for both men and women. Moreover, the boutique boasts an array of carefully selected Scandinavian brands, including Demadly, to cater to the discerning high-end clientele docking their yachts in the stunning harbor.
