Mallorca in three days

Processed with MOLDIV

Mallorca has thousands of magical and idyllic places to visit while staying at Son Brull. We could talk days and days about where to go and what to see, which is why today we sum it all up and offer you a three day itinerary. To follow our recommendations, we suggest you rent a car after exploring the surroundings of our hotel. Let’s go!

The Northern area of the island is surrounded by the Tramuntana mountain range, which starts around Andratx and goes all the way to Pollença. This is why we decided to take day one to explore the magic of this beautiful mountain range. We get things started by paying a visit to the village of Banyalbufar, where we can also stop at the little wine cellar Son Vives to try some of the white Malvasia wine they produce. We continue our first day taking a bath at a little cove with the same name of the village. At ‘Cala Banyalbufar’ you’ll find a waterfall that seems to be taken out of a magical storybook.

We continue our adventure visiting Valldemossa, a beautiful mountain village known for its beauty, its ‘cocas de patata’, its idyllic views and for being the town Frédéric Chopin and French writer George Sand stayet ad. In her words Valldemosa ‘has everything the poet and the painter can dream of created by nature’. We couldn’t have said it better, George!

At the Royal Cartuja of Valldemossa we can visit Chopin’s cell. There you can see the piano he used to compose some preludes, a polonaise, his third scherzo and his second ballad. A true gem! After this cultural stop we go to Deià. Our recommendation: go to the little cove called ‘Cala Deià. Breathtaking views of the sea and the mountains, turquoise and transparent water and some delicious fresh fish!

Llucalcari is the perfect spot to spend the rest of our afternoon. If you feel like it, you can have an exfoliation treatmet by covering your skin with clay. To take it off, you can take a nice swim in the ocean and then continue our route to see the sunset at viewpoint Sa Foradada.

On our second day exploring Mallorca we just have one thing in mind: get to know Palma, the capital city of Balearic Islands. Its incredible catehdral has Europe’s biggest rose window. Jaume the 1st, built the cathedral in honor of virgen Mary. But you’ll learn all about it while visiting, so we leave it to the pros. Let us know how it went!

Time to eat and there’s plenty to choose from in Palma’s city center and the cathedral’s surroundings. Our Son Brull staff will be happy to share top recommendations week after week.

After lunch we go to Es Baluard, the modern and contemporary art museum in Palma, where you’ll find paintings by Miquel Barceló, Pierre Gonnord or Joan Miró, among many others. A modern and avanguard museum with a huge art collection and a beautiful terrace to enjoy an afternoon vermuth. Continuing with our tour through Palma we stroll around its most emblematic streets like Jaime III, Passeig des Born and Ramblas and also recommend to get a little lost around its little alleyways and cobbled streets full of beautiful patios.

After having dinner it’s time to go to bed and have some nice and comforting night sleep at the hotel to get ready for the third and last day of our three-day discovery.

On day number three we will go visit one of the most beautiful and hidden secrets of Balearic Islands: the island of Cabrera. Therefore we will have to go all the way to the South of Mallorca. At Colonia de Sant Jordi we’ll be able to go on a daily tour to Cabrera. This island, which also is a natural park, has remained untouched since 1916. You can only get to Cabrera on a private boat or rental and during the visit you’ll see some beautiful coves around the island and Cabrera itself.

On the way back from Cabrera to Mallorca’s shore one last stop will take your breath away: it’s the Blue Cave. Its stunning beauty and natural blue color invite you to take one last dip into the beautiful Mediterranean sea.
