From North to South, East to West

Those who live on Mallorca (or who spend a lot of time here) will know what we mean when we say that every corner of the island has something unique to offer visitors. From North to the South, East to West, there is tons to see and do, meaning you’ll never run out of options.

The best thing: from our Pabisa Hotels, you can explore this beautiful Mediterranean gem to your heart’s content. So, flip the switch on sightseeing mode and let us show you the different regions of Mallorca.


Let’s start in the heartland of Mallorca, where the agricultural heritage of the island still leaves its mark on the landscape and the people. Nestled amidst fields, herds of livestock, ancient farmhouses and vineyards, you’ll find charming and sleepy towns, where time seems to have stood still and authentic experiences await (think local markets, where you can sample the best produce and artisanal goods).

If you’re in the mood to sample some delicious and regional wines, then you’ll want to visit the towns of Santa Maria and Binissalem, where you can enjoy a day of winetasting. Some of our favourite vineyards include Macia Batle and Bodegas José L. Ferrer.


If you’re looking for spectacular natural scenery, a diverse mix of beaches and towns where you can feel the pulse of history, then we recommend a visit to the north of the island. While popular with tourists, this area has never lost its charm and natural beauty. In fact, Mallorca’s north is home to one of the most jaw dropping coastal roads in the world, which weaves its way along the sea, before climbing to the famous Far de Formentor.

Lovers of clear waters, golden sand and seaside relaxation will enjoy the 35km long beach that stretches from Puerto de Alcúdia all the way to Can Picafort.

Sports enthusiasts of any kind will also find plenty to do here. Alcanada golf course for example has made its name as one of the best courses on the island. Cyclists are drawn to the challenging climbs, like the Coll de Femenia or the Coll de sa Batalla. Add to that kitesurfing, paddleboarding and diving, and it’s easy to see why the north has become Mallorca’s activity central.

To round off your day trip, we recommend a visit to the popular towns of Alcúdia or Pollença, where ancient walls envelop romantic town squares and there is a constant buzz in the air.


Similar to the north, the northeast is the perfect marriage of seaside resorts, traditional towns and nature reserves. Home to well-known tourist hotspots, such as Cala Millor, Cala Ratjada and Cala Mesquida, it’s a great place to explore with the whole family. Those seeking a more action filled daytrip will enjoy a visit to the Coves del Drac near Porto Cristo, where you’ll find the largest underground lake in Europe.

Hikers in particular will love the variety of trails that wind their way through the Llevant natural park and along the coast. In the town of Artá, you can immerse yourself in the past with a visit to the local parish church, which dominates the skyline.


The wildest and arguably most beautiful region of the island is the northwest, where the UNESCO World Heritage Serra de Tramuntana mountain range towers majestically above the turquoise waters.

Make sure that your visit to this corner of Mallorca includes a stop at Port de Sóller, where you can enjoy a delicious lunch by the harbor before heading along the Ma-10 towards the dreamy towns of Valldemossa and Deià, which have served as inspiration for poets and artists for centuries. If you want to go all out on a romantic dinner, we suggest booking a table at the award-winning El Olivo restaurant, located inside the luxurious La Residencia Hotel.


Mallorca’s south extends from Cap de Ses Salines to the Serra de Llevant natural park. We love the bays on this side of the island, with their crystal-clear waters and abundant marine life, that can be enjoyed whilst snorkeling. Our beach faves in this region include Cala Llombards and of course, Es Trenc, which is home to the Balearic’s only natural salt mine.


The southeast is all about relaxed beach time. One of the destinations in this region you’ve definitely heard of is Cala d’Or, which is famous for its many small Calas, restaurants and nightlife. The architecture here is similar to the whitewashed buildings you’d usually find in Ibiza, adding to its unique flair. The towns of Sa Rapita, Campos, Felanitx and Manacor await your visit with their historic charm.


The southwest begins where the Tramuntana mountains end and slope into the sea. This region is known as the Beverly Hills of Mallorca, with a glamourous lifestyle embodied best by places such as Andratx or Santa Ponça. Aside from high-end shopping and dining, you can also enjoy a host of watersports in this region, including kitesurfing, which is hugely popular here. If you’re here for the party, you most definitely have heard of Magaluf and Palmanova, where all the fun happens. If you want to try your hand at a game of blackjack, you can even visit the Mallorca Casino in Porto Pi. Palmanova is also home to tons of activity centres for the family, including Marineland. For a more unusual day out, we recommend visiting the small island of Sa Dragonera, which is only accessible by boat from Paguera and Sant Elm. Here, you can discover a number of rare species, from birds to reptiles, as well as marine life that swim amongst the beautiful corals.


Finally, we wrap it up with the best city in the Med, Palma. This metropolis has it all: impressive architecture, a dreamy old town, a luxurious marina, beaches, shops, restaurants, bars and more. Start your visit to the city with a stop off at the La Seu Cathedral, which stuns with its gothic architecture. After, head to the Arab baths and immerse yourself in history. For lunch, walk through the winding streets of the old town, before exploring the vibrant Mercat de l’Olivar. For some beach fun, head over to the Playa de Palma, which is a short drive away from the city centre. This is where you’ll find our 4 Pabisa hotels.
