Plan Your Trip to Majorca: Best of Majorca Tourism

About Majorca
Majorca has been drawing visitors from all over Europe (and the world) for centuries with its dreamy nature and Medieval charm. Use the capital of Palma as your launching-off point—you’ll find Roman and Moorish relics like the Almudaina Royal Palace or the 13th-century Santa Maria Cathedral around every cobblestoned corner. From there, the rest of the island awaits. Take a scenic drive down the coast or through the countryside to get to some of the island’s best attractions, from art gallery-hopping in Pollença to olive oil tasting at Son Moragues. When you’re ready to hit the beach, popular spots like Cala Deia and Playa de Formentor get you the quintessential Majorcan experience: rocky coves, dramatic cliffsides, and stunning turquoise waters.

6 great places for Majorcan dishes

I’m lucky to have been born and raised in Majorca, with beautiful beaches, charming villages, and—best of all—delicious food. There are tons of great restaurants on the island and it’s hard not to eat well, but these six spots really stand out. Take it from a local.
Marina Sancho, Palma de Mallorca, Spain
  • Ponderosa Beach
    1,263
    There are, arguably, two great reasons to come to this family-run restaurant near Can Picafort. First, sample the tasty paella and other seafood dishes while sipping some refreshing local white wine. Second, enjoy the views of the ocean at Platges de Muro. The tables are right on the beach, so make sure you slip off your sandals so you can feel the soft sand between your toes.
  • Panaderia y Pastelería Ca’n Molinas
    498
    Soft and spongy coca de patata (potato rolls) are the traditional sweets made in the village of Valldemossa. Ca’n Molinas is one of the most famous spots to try them, especially in the lovely garden at the back. In winter, it’s customary to accompany them with a hot chocolate, while in summer they are best with an almond horchata (a sweet, milky drink made from tiger nuts).
  • Sa Granja
    582
    At San Granja, on Sóller’s Plaça de la Constitució, grab a table on the sunny terrace and enjoy the views of the imposing limestone church of Sant Bartomeu. Sóller and the surrounding valley are famous for their oranges, so having some freshly squeezed juice is a must, along with pa amb oli, which literally translates as “bread with oil.” Afterward, wander around the narrow streets through the town.
  • Es Raor
    419
    A former fisherman’s house, this beachfront restaurant in the town of Sant Elm has stunning views of the bay and the nearby island of Sa Dragonera. Es Raor is the sort of place where you’ll feel hunger pangs every time servers carry another seafood dish past your table. The fideua (pasta paella) and the arrós negre (black rice) are both spectacular, especially when they’re paired with local wine.
  • Ca'n Joan de s'Aigo
    1,551
    Locals agree that this café is one of the best places to enjoy traditional desserts. Don’t miss the hot chocolate paired with ensaïmada (a spiral-shaped pastry), one of the island’s most beloved sweets. Can Joan de s’Aigo is also famous for its almond ice cream and cuarto (pound cake). Take time to explore Palma’s Old Town, where you’ll find the majority of the must-see sights, including the majestic “La Seu” cathedral.
  • Can Costa
    558
    At this lovely restaurant between the villages of Valldemossa and Deià, ask to be seated close to the tafona (oil mill), where olives used to be pressed into fragrant oils. At Can Costa, the arròs brut (rice in a savory broth) is among the most popular dishes, but the traditional porcella rostida (roast suckling pig) is just as delicious.
