Cheap flights to Mallorca
Mallorca is the largest of the Spanish Balearic Islands and the most popular. Mallorca’s surroundings, the mountains and the Mediterranean, create an otherworldly setting of bright blue seas, golden beaches, colorful landscapes and charming villages. This is a warm and welcoming island and its amazing weather and short distance from Europe’s largest cities make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the continent. In fact, Mallorca is such a wonderful place that many never return to their cold and drab hometowns. Just ask artist Joan Miró who married his wife in Mallorca and moved his family there in the 1950s. The city of Palma has a must-see museum full of the artist’s works, a recommended break from the sun and sand.
Those struggling to finish their most beautiful preludes can bring their French poet of a girlfriend on a winter-long stay in Mallorca. At least it did the trick for Chopin and George Sand. Mallorca has in fact been an inspiration to many artists and you might want to bring Robert Graves, Agatha Christie or Borges with you in paperback to the beach to read some of their published works that take place in Mallorca.
The flourishing tourist industry of this island ensures a wide array of services, most notably an incredibly variety of restaurants and eateries. Fine dining Michelin restaurants compete with street food stalls for every meal and visitors to this island profit from this endless selection and high quality. As is fitting for all islands, the cooks of Mallorca excel in seafood and a perfect Mallorca meal is fresh fish from one of the many seafood restaurants along the coast. Book a window seat, the spectacular ocean view is worth it.
Most visitors to Mallorca are here to lie on the beach, sunbathe, eat great food and drink refreshing cocktails. But the island’s beauty is lost on no one. Think green hills, dramatic cliffs, hidden coves, yellow beaches and a crystal-clear sea. The list of entertainment and activities are endless, but we recommend biking tours on land and snorkeling excursions on sea.
In short, Mallorca is an old-world paradise and the perfect destination for lovers of culture and comfort.
