Mallorca, the largest of the three Balearic Islands, is known for its spectacular beaches, hidden coves, and the capital city of Palma. A popular destination for solo travellers, Mallorca is on many people’s bucket list.
Book a stay in a Mallorca villa to get the most out of your trip, plan ahead, and explore the many interesting places on the island. Whether you visit Palma, Cala d’Or, Pollensa, or Alcudia, you will find something riveting to treasure.
Here are five tips for solo travellers in Mallorca:
Check Out the Local Food Markets in Palma
Palma is the number one holiday destination for solo travellers in Mallorca. It is a modern city with a taste of the old. The open-air markets selling delicious fresh fruits, local dishes, and street food are perfect for sampling your way through the local flavours. Santa Catalina Market offers some mouth-watering tapas, paella, wines, and more. Mercat d’Oliver is another popular food market selling fruits, vegetables, cheese, tapas, and fresh seafood. Palma has much to offer in terms of restaurants, bars, and shops that you can easily navigate on foot, by car or bicycle.
Rent a Bike to Cover More Ground
If you’re fond of cycling or walking, there’s no better way to explore Mallorca. Whether you’re in Palma or one of the beach towns, cycles are a great way to get around. You will find bike paths conveniently next to beaches and in town. A bike ride by the sea with nothing but your thoughts, some music, and the sea breeze is soul food. Travelling alone gives you these pleasures such as time that is meant only for you. Renting a bike is just another way to amplify this time and make the most of it. End your day at a jazz club or a seaside restaurant for good vibes.
Get Involved with an Organised Tour
There are many ways to visit the places of interest and attractions in Mallorca. You can purchase private tickets to visit on your own. Or, you can be part of an organised tour that provides guides, food, and even additional events for a more wholesome experience. For instance, you can visit the famous Drach Caves and enjoy the classical music concert on the boat along with other travellers. This way you get to meet other solo travellers and also have the bookings, etc. taken care of.
Rent A Private Villa For One
What better than an entire holiday to yourself on a solo trip? Mallorca has amazing villas near the Mediterranean Sea or in the heart of old towns like Pollensa. A stay in a Mallorca villa will be a wonderful experience where you can dine al fresco on your private terrace, swim in your private pool, and cook when you want in your fully-equipped kitchen. It becomes easier to explore town and other parts of the island when you have a comfortable and secure place to come back to. Private villa stays will definitely elevate your solo adventure in Mallorca.
Spend a Day at the Beach
When in Mallorca, you must spend days by the sea lounging on the soft sandy shores. Mallorca is home to several hidden coves that reveal spectacular bays with crystal clear water. Head to the beach for a relaxing time with a good book. Palma Nova is a family beach, perfectly safe and beautiful. At Cala Millor, you get clear water and quiet surroundings and Calas de Mallorca is famous among solo female travellers. The promenade, the white sand, rocky shores, and the turquoise sea is a heady combination.
Solo travelling is a rite of passage which is scary at first but so rewarding once you get used to it. Mallorca is a great place to ease into solo travelling as it has something for everyone. Palma is great for those looking for wild nightlife as well as travellers who seek comfort in the quiet bylanes of old cities. Curate your own personal solo travel experience and of course, always stay vigilant.
