Mallorca Weekend breaks

It can be nice to plan and take a weekend break and escape the humdrum routine of everyday life. For those of you that would like a quick weekend getaway that is nearby, why not head to the largest island in the Balearic Islands - Mallorca. Whether you are looking for adventure or just want to relax by the water, this place will meet your needs. As it is such a touristy location, off-peak season is usually the ideal time to go if you want some peace and quiet and to experience a slower pace of local life and it will be a lot kinder on your wallet too.

Those of you that enjoy a little adventure, head to the Tramuntana region in the northern coast. Here you can hike up, either by yourself or with a guide, and see the stunning cliff faces of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range. Though this is one of the more expensive areas of the island to visit, the beauty and romance of this area is unmatched anywhere else in Mallorca. It is easy to rent a bike and explore the island too if you want to get up close and personal. Country lanes weave in and out of the breathtaking landscape offering numerous places to relax and enjoy the sights.

The southern region is dominated by churches that can be seen miles away and is home to mouth-watering wood-oven pizzeria Pomodoro. Beach lovers will want to make their way to the picturesque S’Amarador beach in the southeast where the water is a perfect lukewarm temperature in Autumn. The capital, Palma, has an amazing Fish Market located right in the heart of a seafront village and the wide variety of small cafes and shops to be explored along the pedestrianised street of Carrer Sant Miquel is not to be missed.
