Take your time to truly get to know Mallorca and enjoy the little moments in the most charming places. Trying local delicacies for breakfast, swimming in the sea, having lunch on the beach, hiking with stunning views and basking in an unforgettable moment as the sun sets over the most unique landscapes. These are just some of the plans that this two-day itinerary includes, as you freely explore the largest of the Balearic Islands by car.
Discover the tranquility of Mallorca in 2 days
After breakfast we recommend you make the most of being in Valldemossa, one of Mallorca’s and the Sierra de Tramuntana’s most picturesque villages, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and explore its streets on foot. The town, in which figures such as Frédéric Chopin lived, is steeped in history. Getting lost among its streets is the best way to discover and appreciate its true beauty. Visit the Valldemossa Royal Charterhouse, the Rey Juan Carlos Gardens, the Frédéric Chopin and George Sand museum, the calle de la Rectoria and the Lledoners observation point.
Cala de Banyalbufar
It’s time to get closer to the coast and see the sea close up. From Valldemossa, jump in the car and head to another charming coastal town in the Sierra de Tramuntana: Banyalbufar. Explore its spectacular stony cove and its small port steeped in Mediterranean essence. What better way to spend the afternoon. Plus, you’ll find a small freshwater waterfall at the cove. The afternoon just gets better and better! We recommend bringing your own food and water, as there are no beach bars in the area. Don’t forget your water shoes and a parasol.
Sunset in Sa Foradada
We’ll continue to uncover more corners of the Sierra de Tramuntana, and there’s no better place to catch the sunset than at Sa Foradada. It’s an immense rock with a hole that rises majestically above the sea. The views from the observation point of the same name are simply breathtaking! Sunset is the best time to enjoy them. There is also a chill-out bar to enjoy the sunset with a drink in hand. We recommend getting there early, as it is one of the island’s most famous places to see the sunset. Don’t forget to ask what time the sun sets on the day you’re thinking of going.
Cala Na Clara
Get an early start to visit one of the island’s most beautiful coves. Trust us, it’s worth it! Today we are going to spend a day in northern Mallorca. Kick start the day with a dip in the crystal clear turquoise waters of Cala Na Clara. The marvelous views of the whole area can’t be missed, so make sure you stop at the observation point before heading down to the cove. Take out your camera and capture the moment! Don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes to visit the cove, as the path is a stony dirt track. You should also bring water with you as the area is completely undeveloped.
It’s time to hop aboard a boat and sail the Mallorcan seas. This activity is only for those who are partial to sailing. If the plan appeals to you, you can skip the previous step as well as the next, and spend the day on the water. We recommend heading to Port de Pollensa where you can rent a boat and have a great time!
The chance to see the beaches and coves on the north side of the island from the sea is a true privilege. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen and a decent hat!
Lunch at Playas de Muro, Can Gavella
It’s lunchtime at last, so we’ll head to Playas de Muro, one of the longest and most stunning sandy beaches in the north of the island. Here our favorite beach bar for lunch is Can Gavella. It has a large and varied menu, although we recommend trying their rice dishes. They’re simply amazing! And after lunch, we propose unwinding on the beach and enjoying the sea breeze at Playas de Muro. And why not take a dip! You can also try one of the tasty cocktails at Can Gavella while you take in your surroundings and the views.
Before you travel
- We recommend always wearing some kind of water shoes so you can take a dip in the rocky coves.
- If you like snorkeling, don’t forget a diving mask and a snorkel to explore the abundance of marine life in the Mediterranean Sea.
- If you don’t want to miss the sunsets, make sure you check what time the sun goes down. And remember that it can change every day!
