An unforgettable weekend in Mallorca?
Here are some 10 MUST SEE places!
Mallorca is a unique island for its places and landscapes. Come visit Mallorca for a weekend and enjoy the best addresses and my local tips to make it become an unforgettable weekend!
1. MARKET SANTA CATALINA
To begin, let me take you to the most famous market in Mallorca that joins colors, flavors and offers a unique atmosphere of its kind: EL MERCADO DE SANTA CATALINA. What better way to start a day than to enjoy the simple things of life and the smells of fresh products. For food lovers, I advise you to shop according to your desire of the moment and to eat it in the restaurant near the exit; there will be everything available to cook the good products you’ve selected!
2. ES BALUARD
After awaking your taste buds it is time to enjoy a visit of the Contemporary Museum: ES BALUARD located in the center of Palma; 5 minutes walking from the market. Enjoy a unique contemporary setting of its kind. Some works of art are exhibited and if you walk up the stairs you’ll enjoy a stunning view of the old town of Palma as well as the port of Palma and the Bellver’s Castle.
After walking and visiting the museum Es Baluard, it’s time to enjoy some idyllic locations in the most beautiful premises of Mallorca: CAPPUCCINO. Cappuccinos are not only coffee house / restaurants they also offer you a classy atmosphere while maintaining the traditional spirit of Mallorca. In the hot summers of Palma, I advise you: the homemade lemonade or frocaccinos (for coffee lovers); nothing more refreshing! For the hungry ones, the club sandwich and the homemade Cappuccino’s burgers are simply delicious!
4. THE OLD TOWN’S WALL AND THE CATHEDRAL OF PALMA
Once you have enjoyed the food and coffee it is time to admire the old town of Palma! Nothing better than going through Born to move towards the old town’s walls. Once at the top enjoy a breathtaking view of the bay of Palma and of the beautiful cathedral. This tour of the old Palma is a MUST SEE!
Time for shopping! I recommend you visit BROWNIE; the shop is located in the center of Palma in its beautiful streets. This Spanish brand will make more than one fall in love with it! Come back from your original holidays and make your friends jealous of your new looks!
Next destination Andratx! After a busy day in Palma it’s time to enjoy an outstanding view of Puerto Andratx. My little shopping tip is to enjoy this calm and relaxing atmosphere to try pareos and beach accessories unique in the world in PAREOCONNECTION. Choose your favorite ones and become the most beautiful on the beach tomorrow!
7. ES TRENC
For this last day, nothing more exciting than a paradise beach: ES TRENC. Go there early in the morning to enjoy the calm and sip a good coffee in one of the most beautiful chiringuito of Mallorca (beach restaurant): EL CHIRINGUITO DEL MEDIO. For lunch, the CHIRINGUITO DEL MEDIO offers a menu full of variety, personally I love the ham and Melon, fresh and authentic! Little advice of the day; to fight against the heat, order a white (made of cava) or Red Sangria and sip it with your best friend the feet in the sand! CHEERS

8. MOLTA BARRA
To enjoy your last night in Mallorca, let me take you in THE tapas bar of Mallorca: MOLTA BARRA. Enjoy an authentic and welcoming atmosphere of a real tapas bar. The counter present some variety of tapas and for the curious ones a menu full of different tapas is also at your disposition. I suggest you to order a half liter red/white wine and indulge yourself as you wish to taste many tapas of the menu! Enjoy the low prices and the excellent quality of tapas! Salud
9. PACHA MALLORCA
To end this wonderful night, nothing better than to take your best friend dancing and sipping some cocktails in the most known and Classy club of Mallorca: Pacha Mallorca. Enjoy the VIP lounge areas and do not forget the dance floor that offers the best music and Dj’s worldwide!
10. PUERTO PORTALS
As it’s your last day in Mallorca let me bring you to PUERTO PORTALS to enjoy a nice coffee and lunch. This port is known as the St Tropez of Mallorca. There you’ll find plenty of variety of restaurants and shops equally luxurious and classy. Once you’ve chosen your restaurant, enjoy the fancy cars and the beautiful view of the port and its Yachts. My Advice is to enjoy a nice refreshment at the Roxy beach club near the portal’s beach for a moment nostalgia just before going to the airport. Cheers next to the sea this wonderful weekend!
