We got a plane early in the morning from Manchester Airport which took just over 2 hours. From airport we got a shuttle bus to the car rental company we were using. Considering it was February the temperature was actually very warm, however, there was definitely a but of a chilly breeze at times but I think that’s typical of Mallorca anyway as it’s an island. The hotel we stayed at was situated in Palma Nova and was less than a five minute walk to the beautiful beach. Palma nova is definitely a party town in the summer as it’s very easy to tell due to all the takeaways and party hotels in the area. The four days consisted of driving around the amazing scenery and finding little spots we could enjoy ourselves in without a lot of people.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I would have gone for longer as I feel I didn’t get to see enough of the island. Also I would go during the summer months too because when we went in February a lot of the very touristy places were shut as well as a lot of restaurants and it also limits the stuff you can do.
How was the food?
Don’t go to the first restaurant you find that you think looks good because there are always so many more places that are worth trying that you’ll end up finding after you’ve already eaten/drank.
Definitely look at renting a car while you go. It’s 100% worth it and it means you can get around the whole island and there are so many places worth looking at.
