What to do in Mallorca in a week? Our must-see map on our travel blog

If you’d like to know what to do in Mallorca for a week or more, we’ve shared our itinerary map below. We did it in one week in May 2024. This will enable you to see the many facets of the island in one week. If you’re more interested in chilling out on your Mallorca vacation, note that the most beautiful beaches are generally to be found to the south, and the villages and mountain scenery to the north.

Caló des Moro

If you’re wondering what to do in Mallorca and searching the web for the island’s most beautiful beaches, you should easily come across Caló des Moro. For us, it’s one of the most beautiful coves on Mallorca and well worth a visit. The path to the cove is truly magnificent and a must-do! Be careful, though, as access to the beach is quite difficult. Wear good shoes and take some water with you!

💡 Please note: often a victim of its own success, the beach quickly becomes saturated in summer. We recommend getting there early and avoiding weekends as much as possible. We went there on a Monday morning at 9:00 am in the middle of May and there was almost nobody there. To get there, you can park at this car park or by here if you’re lucky enough to travel like us out of season.

Cala S’Almunia

A neighbor to Caló des Moro, Cala s’Almunia is also very pretty! The two coves are well connected by a signposted path, so we recommend you take a look if you’re in the area. The cove is small but really typical of the Balearic Islands, with its small fishermen’s huts.

Cala Llombards

In our opinion, this is one of Mallorca’s most beautiful beaches and, above all, one of the most accessible! A big car park is available by the beach as well as a restaurant. We didn’t try it out, but it must be nice to eat there, with your feet in the sand. We opted for the picnic option with a view over the cala, and we loved it. Note that the beach is supervised, which is a real plus if you’re traveling with children.

The water here is crystal-clear, as in almost all Mallorcan coves. If you’re wondering what to do in Mallorca, this is the place to go! Don’t miss the photo spot with the staircase to the left of the beach, where you’ll get a really nice view.

This is the typical village not to be missed in the south of Mallorca, very close to the beaches mentioned above. Wondering what to do in Mallorca? How about the Santanyí market? We loved the atmosphere of the town and its cobbled streets, where you’ll find numerous boutiques and small restaurants/cafés. We found the market well worth the detour, taking in many of the streets and offering a wide range of summer clothes, bags and hats, food stalls and local crafts. For those who like to stroll outside, there’s something for everyone. The market, on the other hand, is quite well-known, and even for the month of May there were quite a few people there.

💡 Please note: the market is held in the village center every Wednesday and Saturday from 9am to 2pm.

Cala Figuera

Cala Figuera was one of our favorite walks in Mallorca! Here, you won’t necessarily be able to swim (prefer the Cala Santanyí a 5-minute drive away for that) but rather stroll along the harbor’s edge, which is really quite beautiful.

Take your time to walk around and admire the landscape, which is truly magnificent. While we were there, we had the opportunity to drink a café con leche at the café bon bar and the view was breathtaking. Our hotel was just a 5-minute walk from Cala Figuera and pretty well placed for visiting all the calas in the south of Mallorca. We’ll tell you more about it in our section on where to stay in Mallorca.

To visit the south of Mallorca, we stayed at the Hotel Port Satanyi. A lovely address, which we’ll tell you about a little further down in the article.

Ses Salines

This little village is very cute and has lots of little stores and restaurants. We headed there at the end of the day to try out an address that Clémence had spotted, the Cassai gran Café & restaurant. The designer restaurant serves up some truly delicious dishes and cocktails. If you’re looking for a place to eat in the area, we recommend it, but remember to book in advance. The village of Ses Salines is the perfect place for an evening out in Mallorca in our opinion!

Ses Salines


During our trip to Mallorca, we decided to spend a whole day in Palma, the island’s capital. In our opinion, one day is more than enough to see the city’s must-sees. To help you discover the city, we’re sharing here our walking itinerary in Palma. On our day out, we left our car at underground parking Passeig de Mallorca (which we found rather affordable), had lunch at Italian restaurant Rikito and had a drink at the end of the day on the rooftop Singular.  You’ll find the atmosphere and bustle of big Spanish cities with plenty of stores and terraces.

In order to visit the south-west of Mallorca, we stayed for two nights at the Finca Gomera hotel. A lovely address, which we’ll tell you about a little further down in the article.

Cala Mitjana

Cala Mitjana is a beautiful cove but rather difficult to access as there is no parking nearby. It’s a 30-minute walk along the road.

If (like us) you’re feeling a bit lazy, we recommend that you head for the nearby Cala sa Nau. This confidential Cala is just as beautiful and has a parking. The beach is also supervised and has a beach restaurant. We really enjoyed spending the afternoon here, and recommend it to you.

Cala Agulla

Located completely to the southeast of the island, the Cala Agulla is considered one of the most beautiful beaches on Mallorca. We didn’t have time to explore this side of the island at all, but many of you recommended it to us on Instagram. We’ve seen a few photos and videos of Cala Agulla and it looks really beautiful. If you’re in the area, don’t hesitate to stop by.

Located in the heart of the Serra de Tramuntan, the village of Valldemossa was a real crush for us. If you love strolling through charming cobbled streets with an ice cream in hand, you absolutely must visit Valldemossa. We loved discovering this village and highly recommend it. If you’d like to sample a good ice cream during your visit, we recommend the artisanal ice cream parlour Gelati Mossa. Special mention for the Mallorcan lemon ball! 

💡 Please note: On your stroll, don’t miss the carrer Rectoria, arguably the most beautiful street in the village of Valldemossa.

Valldemossa Mallorca


Just a 15-minute drive from Valldemossa, Deià is an unmissable hilltop village in northern Mallorca. The drive from Valldemossa is magnificent, and the views as you arrive in the village are breathtaking. Allow 1 to 2 hours for the tour.

💡 Please note: When exploring Deià, don’t miss the Ca’s Patro March restaurant. This is a really nice address, so remember to make a reservation to secure a seat. You’ll then be able to enjoy the paradisiacal setting of Deià beach!

Cala Deia

Another heavenly spot on Mallorca… Cala Deià, mentioned just above, is a cove with translucent water that’s sure to give you a change of scene. Its main attraction is the two restaurants directly overlooking the cala. Be careful though, Cala Deià is a creek with pebbles and access requires a little patience to park.

Sóller is undoubtedly one of the most popular villages in northern Mallorca. Located a 20-minute drive from Deià, the village is best known for its cathedral, wooden tramway (the Ferrocarril de Sóller) and harbor.

The Ferrocarril de Sóller is one of the island’s best-known tourist attractions, and if you’re wondering what to do in Mallorca, taking this train might be a good idea! It costs €14 return for a tour of Sóller and its port.

Soller Mallorca

If you want to get to So Calobra from the sea, there are also boats offering excursions from the port of Sóller.

Close to Sóller lies the small village of Fornalutx. It’s one of the most beautiful villages in Spain, and it’s easy to see why! The village is very pretty, if rather small. You’ll probably be able to get around it in no time. We really liked the plaza de España, the village’s main square. It’s got a really nice atmosphere, with lots of restaurants.

While we were there, we had lunch at the bakery Forn de Bari and the sandwiches and desserts were to die for! We recommend the address if you want lunch on the go.

Sa Calobra and Torrent de Pareis

We then hit the road for over an hour in the direction of Sa Calobra, one of the most spectacular roads in the world. This winding road offers many breathtaking views of the mountains. You’ll come across many bicycles and a few buses, so be careful!

The road ends at two small pebble beaches, one of which lies in the heart of a canyon. Access is on foot through two tunnels cut into the rock. It’s a magnificent place, quite unique in Mallorca, and we highly recommend it.

Located in the mountains, a 40-minute drive from Valldemossa, the village of Banyalbufar is known in particular for its majardes, staircase-like terraces that slope down to the sea. We found the village cute but rather small, and even if the road in this corner of Mallorca is magnificent, we’d only recommend it if you have time on your Mallorca vacation.



In the end, we didn’t have time to discover this corner of the island. A good excuse for us to come back to Mallorca! The town of Alcudia was the island’s former capital and is apparently very cute. The town is right next to a very large sandy beach and a 20-minute drive from the famous Mirador de El Colomer.

The Mirador de El Colomer

Just a 20-minute drive from Alcudia is the Mirador de El Colomer. This is the island’s most famous viewpoint, offering breathtaking views of the sea and mountains. We advise you to come early in the morning, around 9:00 a.m., to enjoy it without too many people, or for sunset. At sunset, the place is magical! On the other hand, it will be much more crowded.

Visiting Mallorca, where to sleep?

If you want to discover the whole island, we recommend you book at least two hotels, one in the south and one in the north. This will save you a lot of driving back and forth. For our part, we decided to take two hotels in the south and one in the north, and found it quite convenient. We share these addresses with you below.

Our good addresses in the south of Mallorca

Hotel Santayi Port

A small, refurbished hotel a 5-minute walk from Cala Figuera that we really liked. We found the hotel rather well placed for discovering the beaches of southern Mallorca. The hotel also boasts a lovely swimming pool. If you’re feeling peckish, we recommend the El cruce restaurant 2 minutes’ walk from the hotel. The food is good and the atmosphere relaxed. If you like billiards and darts, you’ll love this place!

Finca Gomera – Agroturismo Hotel

If you’re looking for a hotel in the heart of Mallorca’s vineyards in a confidential setting, we recommend you take a look at Finca Gomera. We stayed here for two nights and loved it. The location is magnificent and the pool area is truly rejuvenating and soothing. The breakfast overlooking the vineyards is also very nice. The hotel is located 30 minutes by car from Palma and 10 minutes from Cala Pi beach.

Bordoy Continental Valldemossa

If you’re planning to visit the north of Mallorca, we recommend choosing a hotel towards Valldemossa or Sóller. For our part, we chose to stay for 5 nights at the Bordoy Continental in Valldemossa. Our room had a magnificent sea view and was very comfortable. Bonus: if you like goats, you’ll have the chance to meet a few!

The most beautiful hotels in Mallorca

If you’d like even more inspiration for finding your hotel in Mallorca, we’d like to complement our selection of the island’s most beautiful hotels.

Visiting Mallorca, where to eat?

Our good addresses in the south of Mallorca

  • Cassai gran Café & Restaurant: one of our favorite restaurants on the island! If you’re in the south of Mallorca and looking for a good place to dine, you’ve got to go to Cassai gran Café. Located in the small village of Ses Salines, the restaurant boasts a beautiful decor and a delicious menu. Special mention for the cocktails, which are delicious.
  • Rikito Palma: A great Italian restaurant located on a quiet street in Palma’s Santa Catalina district. We had a great time and if you’re looking for a good restaurant in Palma, we recommend this address.

Our good addresses in the north of Mallorca

  • Restaurant Ca’s Patro March: one of our wahoo addresses of the trip! Located on Cala Deià, this restaurant offers a breathtaking view of the sea. We recommend booking ahead and asking for a table with a view!
  • Restaurant Miró: one of the Belmond hotel’s 3 restaurants in Deià. A rather prestigious address with a beautiful view of the region. The hotel is truly magnificent and also boasts the El Olivio and Tramuntana Grill restaurants. Rather pricey so it depends on your budget!
  • Restaurant Illeta: quite a nice restaurant located on a small islet. We’d seen the address on Instagram so we went there for our last day in Mallorca. The place is very beautiful but the prices are quite sustained compared to the quality of the food. What’s more, it’s a fairly built-up area with large hotels overlooking the cala. In short, we recommend this address only if you fall in love with the setting or are already in the area. 
  • Beach club Gran Folies: a nice beach club to grab a bite to eat and spend the afternoon.
  • Restaurant Es Guix: a restaurant nestled in a beautiful setting and serving Mallorcan cuisine. We didn’t get a chance to try it out as it wasn’t on our route, but many of you recommended it to us.

Visiting Mallorca, how to plan your trip well?

When to go to Mallorca?

Being a very touristy destination, we advise you to avoid the summer period as much as possible. If you have the opportunity to come off-season you’ll be able to enjoy the island in the best conditions. In our opinion, the best months to come and swim in Mallorca are May, June, September and October.

We rented our car to visit Mallorca from Centauro. We had already used them for our trip to Ibiza and were very satisfied. Our experience in Mallorca was also very good, the rental company is located 5 minutes by free shuttle from the airport and the cars are all practically new. A good point for Centauro, this rental company accepts debit cards without any problems.

How much does a week in Mallorca cost? 

During our week in Mallorca in May 2024, we spent: 350€ for 2 round-trip plane tickets with Transavia, 300€ for a car with Centauro (including gas), 1000€ for hotels and 100€ per day for meals and activities. All these expenses make a total of 2350€ for two for one week.

What to do in Mallorca for your vacation? Our travel blog review

This is the end of our blog post on Mallorca and as you might expect, we loved this destination. After discovering Ibiza, Formentera and Minorca in previous years, it was a no-brainer for us to come and discover the largest of the Balearic islands. Now that we’ve visited the entire archipelago, we can tell you that each of the islands has its own character.

We’ve loved every single one of our trips, so it’s going to be difficult for us to rank them. Mallorca stands out for being the largest island and for its breathtaking mountain scenery. If you’re hesitating between the 4 islands for your next trip to Spain, we recommend our article on the Balearic Islands. If you liked this article, don’t hesitate to leave us a comment or send us a message on Instagram! Have a great vacation in Mallorca. 🥰
