Exploring the Island of Mallorca, Spain ☀️️

I've Got Sunshine ☀️ | Style and Travel Blogger - Exploring Porto Cristo in Mallorca, Spain

I’ve always wanted to visit a Spanish island, and this year I made it happen! I’ve heard amazing things about Mallorca (also called Majorca), and so it was an obvious choice for us. While we stayed in Palma de Mallorca, today I’ll focus on our exploration of the island as a whole, and what’s worth visiting. Hope this guide will be helpful for those of you looking to visit this gorgeous place! 🙂

When deciding on the attractions we wanted to see, we did a quick search and found out that there are organized excursions, which was the simplest, headache-free route. I found Click-Mallorca to be the best option for our needs, as well as the tour we wanted to take. The Caves of Drach and Porto Cristo full day tour was exactly what we were looking for. There was an option with an added smaller cave (Hams), but since Drach is a main attraction on the island, we didn’t feel the need for that one as well.

The tour started at 8:45 am, when the bus picked us up in front of the hotel. The first stop was the Majorica Pearl Factory, as Mallorca is known for its gorgeous pearls all over the world. Indeed, the jewelry pieces were stunning!

Next up was the beautiful Porto Cristo, a well-known harbor on the island. We had a couple of hours to explore on our own and have lunch at one of the restaurants on the seawall. I loved this area so much and I’ll always remember wandering the narrow streets around the port and discovering the stunning architecture of the Spanish buildings. That was a true, authentic experience that I can’t recommend enough if you go visit!

The last stop was the Caves of Drach, which was truly spectacular and a must-see attraction on the island! Luckily, the temperature inside was perfect and not cold at all, so it made the whole experience even more enjoyable 🙂 At the end of the tour, there was such a great surprise: a theater right in the cave where we were delighted with an amazing live classical music concert. This was performed on the Martel lake, which is considered one of the largest underground lakes in the world. Photos or videos weren’t allowed, so I wasn’t able to capture the moment, but it was so special and emotional, that I actually got teary.

I also have to mention that during the bus trip, our guide was continually informing us of different areas as we passed by, as well as what we were about to see next on the tour. And more than that, he was doing it in five or six languages, which was really impressive! If you consider a tour or activities on the island, I recommend checking out Click-Mallorca as they have so many great options to choose from at great prices! I personally had a great experience with them, and if it wasn’t for the limited time we spent on the island, I would’ve chosen more activity packages (like this Catamaran excursion or the speedboat sea tour in Cabrera Island!)

On a different day, we decided to explore Mallorca’s old city at night, as we wanted to experience a bit of the nightlife of the island too. We first decided to stop at Palma de Mallorca’s Cathedral (La Seu), which is known for its superb Gothic architecture. We didn’t get to go inside since it was a late evening, but the outside was magnificent! I recommend trying to go during the day as well to be able to see it inside as I heard it’s really impressive.

After the cathedral, we continued walking through the old city and I can’t say enough how much I loved the narrow streets and the gorgeous architecture! Some of those streets were completely empty and quiet, but in the vicinity, there were cafes and pubs full of people; it was such a great atmosphere everywhere!
