guest post by Teodora

There are not many places on the planet that deserve the saying “born holiday destinations”. The Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea are among the most beautiful and unforgettable pieces of land that you can ever see. Mallorca is one of the islands of the archipelago that is world renowned for its magnificent and stunning beaches and great summer resorts that provide high quality services and abundance of opportunities for amusement. Visitors of all ages will have a great time on the island.

Picturesque areas for hiking, installations for extreme and water sports, playgrounds for children and many more await you in Mallorca. Fans of scuba diving and snorkeling find the island as a real paradise. If you love spending your time exploring interesting landmarks and buildings of the local reality, Mallorca has a lot to offer to you.

The little fishing villages set along the coastline provide the perfect conditions for leisure walks and picnics in beautiful surroundings. The capital of Mallorca, Palma, is renowned for its boiling nightlife and the abundance of concerts and celebrations happening during the tourist season.

The landscape of Mallorca is endowed with a great diversity, varying from its remarkable stunning beaches to the impressive mountain Sierra Tramuntana. The mountain lies in the area between Cabo Formentor (top photo) and Isla Dragonera and protects the island from the north winds.

One of the best ways to explore this wonderful land on your own is to use car hire Mallorca for your holiday and choose your own route. By driving around the island you can pick the most interesting places for you and enjoy everything Mallorca has to offer.

The great benefit of this type of lodging is the independence you will have during your stay, not attached to tourist groups. Apartments are set in different parts of the island, so you can pick the most attractive area for you and book an apartment there.

The local cuisine is rich and delicious with a variety of meals from the Spanish gastronomy and seafood specialties. When you choose to stay in an apartment in Mallorca, you will have the opportunity to dine out as well as to cook a homemade meal in the en-suite kitchens. Mallorca is a famous summer resort, blessed with pleasant weather all around the year, so don’t miss the opportunity to visit the island in any season.

I visited Mallorca some time ago now and just loved it. I found it not unlike parts of Australia & I guess I liked that because I'd been away from home for more than 12mths. There was something about it that was welcoming. It was a comfortable visit with a family I was Nanny for & we stayed in a luxurious apartment in Puerto de Andratx and from there explored the area. Thanks for igniting some strong memories! :-)

I'd love to do some hiking in Mallorca in the spring or autumn - it sounds like a beautiful island

I was just talking to someone about the Balearic Islands, and they told me that Mallorca is often overlooked because most head for party-time Ibiza. But from your post, I'd much prefer Mallorca. Looks stunning!

I've never been to Spain yet - but this sure is enticing!

@heather: Me too.

@BarbaraW: I'm not into the party islands at all.

@Sherry: It looks fantastic to me too.
