The best time to enjoy the island is during the summer. There are a variety of things to do during the summer on Majorca. Enjoying the coast and the beaches in Mallorca are always a perfect plan, but today we are going to recommend something different.
Majorca is known for its beaches, but it hides much more than turquoise waters and golden sands. On this balearic island you can also enjoy trips to the mountains, or plans which start in the mountains and end by the sea. There is something for everyone on the island.
Things to do on Majorca in summer
The good weather in Majorca allows you to do different things. It is true that because of the warm weather on the island in summer you only feel like relaxing and lying on the beach, but there are many other activities in Majorca in summer.
Today we are going to suggest different things, that even with the mediterranean heat of the Majorcan summer, you can enjoy apart just from going to the beach.
In order to go from Sóller to Palma, and vice versa, we propose a very special plan. With more than 100 years of history, we have the spectacular Sóller train. A relic in the form of a wooden train which makes this journey various times a day.
This train takes from the city centre of Palma to Sóller or the port of Sóller. It also makes a few stops at viewpoints or emblematic places such as the gardens of Alfabia.
With windows from which you can see different parts of the island throughout the whole journey, you will end up in the Tramuntana mountains discovering beautiful spots. It is a trip that everyone who visits the island should do.
You can find the departure times and purchase tickets at the different stops of the sóller train.
Torrent de Pareis
The Torrent de Pareis is a spectacular canyon located in the Sierra de Tramuntana. In addition, its opening to the mediterranean sea is unique as it joins the well known beach of Sa Calobra. With cinematic scenary, this sandy beach is special because of its two cliffs either side.
There are different ways to reach Sa Calobra. If you are looking for convenience you can do the trip by bus which will take you to this beautiful spot. For those who are more adventurous there are two options.
The first is to take a boat trip from the Port of Sóller. This is without a doubt the most beautiful and different way to discover this corner and the Majorcan coast. Another option is to walk to this stunning spot. It is quite a long route, therefore it is recommended that you are fit and to go with someone who has done before.
After passing through the Torrent de Pareis, you just have to enjoy the sun, the beach and the sea. Do not miss the chance to snorkel and discover the varied marine life of this part of the island. You will love it.
Sunset at La Foradada
Although there are different locations to see the sunset in Mallorca, La Forada is the most special and popular. Right in the heart of Tramuntana mountains, located between the two emblematic villages of Deia and Valldemossa, there are various viewpoints. All of them have something in common: the views of La Foradada.
La Forada is a rock which sticks out a few metres above the sea and has a perfect hole, very characteristic. This place creates a magical atmosphere which hypnotizes everyone who sees the sunset in Majorca.
Also, since a few years ago, just above this place there is a bar where you can have a drink. It is the ideal spot to have the last drink of the day or the first of the night, you choose.
To get there you just have to follow the road from Valldemossa to Deia, until you see a big sign on your left saying that you have reached La Foradada. It is recommendable that you arrive early, as parking is not easy, and you do not want to miss the sunset in Majorca.
