Mallorca gem of the Mediterranean

Majorca is a little taste of end of the world in the Mediterranean Sea. 360km of beach, most of fine white sand, warm and crystalline waters. You might easily think in the Caribbean both the panorama and the climate are exotic.

Why not take a tour of the island to discover all its marvellous beaches? Many holiday Majorca rentals will allow you to be mobile on the island and discover at leisure beaches and coves all more sublime than the ones than the others. Your tour of Majorca could begin in Palma, the capital of the Balearic Islands. Apart from the sumptuous beaches you will love to discover the port of the city which is very touristy. Nicknamed the city of patios, Palma has around 40 and all are worth a visit. The inevitable de la Ciutat, as local, is the Cathedral of the city. Gothic style overlooking the sea. It is the second Cathedral of Spain after that of Seville which gives an idea about its size.

Then southerly full in Colonia de Sant Jordi. Small charming village, it is an ideal place to relax. Renting a house in Majorca and more specifically in Colonia de Sant Jordi you will have feet in the water of the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean such as for example the beaches Dels Estanys, del Carbo, del Dolç or Es Trenc. The village is also facing the archipelago of Cabrera, which is a protected national park. Accessible by boat from the port of Colonia de Sant Jordi, the archipelago of Islands and limestone islets have a singular ecosystem which includes many species of marine wildlife. The sea surrounding home of unusual species such as the bottlenose dolphin and loggerhead turtle which are generally possible to sight by boat. On Earth, or rather in the air are colonies of seabirds who have chosen the place like habitat including the cinereous Shearwater or the Audouin Gull.

To continue your route why do not take the time to swim in the many coves of the North East of the island. The must-see stop on this side of the island is Cala Mezquita which landscapes that breathtaking. Despite the tourist side of this place, there are small coves very calm and pleasant. It is a perfect place to dive and explore the funds.

Before return to Palma and the loop, take time to visit Sóller in the North of the island. This time, beaches with small pebbles but still so crystal clear and warm water which invites to swimming. But what is really worth the detour in Soller is its Bay at the foot of the mountains. The architecture of the city is also very special, you can admire the many houses of art nouveau style aboard a tourist tram in wood that takes you from the port to downtown da city. Although a cliché strand, the voyage aboard the tram is worth nothing to enjoy well installed landscapes marquee to along the river lined with orange and lemon trees.
