We were recently in Barcelona and really wanted to visit one of the Balearic Islands. We ended up selecting Majorca – Reason being Ibiza is too much of a party island while Minorca/Menorca is more for families with kids with Majorca having a good mix of both.
Going to Majorca is very easy – take a 30 mins flight (i.e. $40 Ryan Air round-trip; not an ad) from Barcelona and you are in paradise! We took the 8 am flight out and 8pm return which gave us 12 solid hours to explore Majorca. Soooo here goes:
P.S. if you plan to drive from one village to other (highly recommend it!), try getting a nice convertible
P.P.S: if you plan to spend more than a day in Mallorca, try renting bikes and go biking from one village to another
I had a seriously hard time writing this post as I was missing the Mediterranean sun while being bundled up in my cold New York apartment! Feel free to drop any comments/ suggest any recommendations. Hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it!
