What to do and see in Majorca, Balearic Islands: The Best Nature & Parks

July 25, 2021 Timmy Ribble

The dreamy island that provided inspiration to Chopin and Miró now has a reputation as a spring break beach destination. Don't worry, though, if you're vacationing over elementary school spring break-- there's plenty for the younger crowd. Marineland's dolphin and sea lion shows and children's beach attract families. And if you have a Thomas-obsessed toddler, the antique train that travels between Palma and Soller is a must-see.

Majorka was for me very underestimate destination - I thought that this island is only for beach loafers. That was really big mistake! This was our second trip only on foot and I can recommend it to everyone who is not beginner and who has some experiences. We went from Sant Elm to Soller (+- 85 km), track was hard because of bad rainy weather, so it was dangerous - dry stones changed to wet and every step was like going on soap floor. There was no chance how to finished GR221, even bus from Lluc was stopped because of wheater. So we moved to San Picaford (eastern coast) and there we started GR 222, which is no less beautiful and wheater there was better (+- 55 km). People there are pleasant, nature very very beautiful, food excellent, accommodation very various in comfort and also prices, we tried everything from sleeping outside to 4* superb hotel - each way was magnificent. Thumbs up for Majorka :)

Artestruz Mallorca

A guide will teach you amazing facts about these ancient birds, in a safe and respectful environment. Tours are interesting, fun and very surprising. If you prefer not to go for a guided tour, you are welcome to meet the ostriches by yourself. Please check website for current prices and timetables.

This place is quite unique. It is a bit rough around the edges but for us this only added to the charm. The owners are very friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. If they got tired of answering my children’s many, many questions it didn’t show! We had a fabulous time learning all sorts of interesting facts and were lucky enough to come home with an ostrich egg thanks to a very kind Italian family. This has gone to school so we can share the ostrich love with our friends in Newcastle!

Parc Natural de Mondrago

Reviewed By pamdudson27

I love this area. It is absolutely stunning. There are two beaches of beautiful whitish sand. It's very hot here as it is surrounded by trees and rocks. The sea is beautifully clear. It's worth a day out here. You can go by car " Hire one for the day" or if you are lucky enough to stay in Cala Dor there is a boat trip from Cala Gran beach which you should be able to book through your hotel. It's a good day out.

Playa de Muro Beach

Reviewed By arqcervinka - Vienna, Austria

I went to Playa de Muro Beach looking for a calm beach with fine sand for my 2 year old to play. This beach is really perfect for this. It has nice fine sand, calm sea, life guards and umbrellas rental. There are no restaurants on the beach, but you will find many options to eat (restaurants and markets) 1 block away. If you want to rent an umbrella (& lounges) I recommend going to the beach early in order to do so. The umbrella will be reserved for you the entire day, so you can go back to your hotel and return later. There is also a safe on the umbrella! So dont be afraid of leaving your values while you go for a swim. The sea is clean and very calm. You will see small fishes swimming around your feet. Just wonderfull!

It was a beautiful day out to Dragonera Island. Such amazing place on the South of Mallorca. We booked an excursion with click mallorca, what was the best choice to visit the little island. We had a ferry, lunch, swimming stop and free time included. Easy booking and very clear information. Dragonera Island is one of nature wonders in Balears, which you should totally visit. With a lot of little and not only lizards around you can see the island wonders. Highly recommended!
