Majorca Attractions and things to do in Majorca

Majorca's markets are often the best places to find genuine bargains and inexpensive shopping, with many markets in Majorca offering a good selection of gift ideas, together with tasty produce, hot snacks and local specialities.

Artá caves The Arta Caves are among the Mallorca’s most spectacular attractions. Located in the in the northeast of the island, they are a fascinating network of underground caverns, whose forests of stalactites and stalagmites conjure up mysterious images of heaven and hell. An early admirer was Jules Verne and the caves are said to have inspired his epic novel, Journey to the Centre of the Earth. Long before they were a tourist attraction, they offered refuge to humans. King Jaume I of Aragon found 2,000 Moors hiding here along with their cattle during the Christian conquest in the 13th century and they were later used by hermits, pirates and smugglers. However the caves were nor thoroughly explored and mapped until 1876. The tour comes with special effects and the various chambers have been given Dantesque names: Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise. The descent into Hell is swiftly followed by a son et lumière display. Stiletto-like Stalactites point down from the roof, somehow defying gravity. One of the chambers is as large as the nave of Palma cathedral and the Queen of Pillars, a stalagmite 22m tall, could almost be a Gothic column. It is growing upwards at the rate of 2cm every 100 years, which means that in another 5,000 years or so it will be joined to the ceiling. You emerge from the caves to a view of the sea, framed by the cavern entrance.

Wine express mini-train Head right into the heart of Mallorca’s wine country in a fun and scenic way.

Golf Park Puntiro For those that like to play a round on holiday then the Golf Park at Puntiro should fill the gap. Located 15 minutes from Palma, in a typical Majorcan environment, this course has managed to integrate a great Nicklaus design with the gentle terrain and the characteristic vegetation of the centre of the island. The fairways are lined with native vegetation: pine trees, scrubland, wild olive trees and carob trees. It is a true course; everything is visible, without tricks, with well-defended but very elegant greens and easy to putt on. Puntiro is a well-balanced golf course with some easier holes where you can obtain a good result combined with some difficult ones. The fairways are always in perfect condition thanks to the variety of Bermuda-grass. If played from yellow tees it is not a long course (par 5s can be reached in 2 shots), the tee shot requires more precision than distance. In contrast, played from white tees, the difficulty increases considerably implying a challenge for low-handicappers. The greens are small and well-guarded by bunkers. Good approach shots will be necessary. Two big lakes come into play on 4 holes, one of them a par 3 where the ball has to overfly 140 meters of water.


Stop dreaming, Go-there and make sure you get the most out of your holiday..
