Itinerary Overview

When you visit Mallorca, it makes totally sense to book a hotel somewhere you like for the whole stay and do several day trips during your vacation. The island is quite small and from the capital Palma you can basically reach any part of the island within 2hours by car.

We stayed in Can Pastilla. In my opinion it is the perfect area. You are really close to the airport and to Palma de Mallorca, but you can also walk up to the party mile! You will have no trouble with finding a parking lot here, which is also quite handy.

If you plan a visit, I would recommend to stay 5-7 days. You can easily fit 2-3 day trips, but also have enough time to expore the capital Palma and chill at the beach.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Nothing - Mallorca is always worth a visit whole year around :)

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Eat where the locals eat! Don't miss out on Paella and tapas

  • Packing tips?

    Bring sunscreen!

  • Transportation Tips?

    If you plan to see something from the island, you should definitely rent a car! In case you prefer to stay around Palma area, the bus transportation system is also quite good.

  • Booking details?

    I always book my hotels via booking.com. If you plan to stay in Arenal, it can be a bit noisy during day and night. Book a hotel more towars Can Pastilla then - it's only a few hundre meters away from the hotspot area, but already way more quite and relaxed!
