Year after year the Spanish Balearic Island of Mallorca attracts millions of tourists from Europe and around the world. Ideally situated in the Western Mediterranean Sea, a five-hour ferry ride from the mainland Mallorca sees many of its visitors arrive at Palma de Mallorca where they find plenty of options available for onward transport that include rental cars, buses and taxis. Blessed with mild winters and hot summers Mallorca is primarily a summer beach destination but has plenty of things to keep you busy all year long. Below we have compiled a list in no particular order the 15 best things to do while visiting Mallorca.

Palma Cathedral

Built by King James I of Aragon in 1229 on a former Moorish mosque, the cathedral you see today was not completed until 1601. Legend has it that in the quest to push the Moors out of Mallorca, James the 1st and his Christian Army survived violent storms while on route to the island with the king, promising that if they survived he would build a great church in honour of the Virgin Mary.

Palma Shopping

When it comes to shopping Palma can rival the best cities in the world with its beautiful Passeig des Born, a tree-lined avenue full of bars and designer boutiques that include Hugo Boss, Mulberry, Zara and Louis Vuitton.

Gourmet Dining

While in Palma stop for lunch at the Michelin starred Marc Fosh restaurant where a three-course set menu meal can be had for 27.50€.

Joan Miró Studio

Surrealism lives on in the studio of Catalan artist Joan Miró where unfinished paintings remain on easels surrounded by paint splattered walls. A good friend of Picasso, Miro is rated as one of the most influential artists of the 21st century whose paintings appeal to a wide audience.
