Dream island where the magic happens
The island of Mallorca is not very big but it is diverse in landscape, habitation and business activities. Basically I know the whole island very well but having lived in Santa Ponca myself for many years I know the south west in particular best. Below is a brief introduction to the island. The link at the bottom of the page will give you an overview of the properties that are currently available. I am also happy to search for a location or property based on your wishes and requirements.
Spain’s Palma de Mallorca is the capital of Mallorca and the Islas Baleares archipelago (including the islands of Ibizi and Menorca). It is a city of more than 400 thousand inhabitants (the eighth largest city in Spain) and its history dates back to the Romans who conquered the island in 120 BC and founded the city of Palma. There is hardly anything left of this period on the island. The name Palma comes from the 13th century by then King James I of Aragon who recaptured the island from the Moors. Today, this port city is the pride of Mallorca.
In the city of Palma de Mallorca there are several attractions such as the 13th century cathedral and a palace of the royal family of Spain, as well as the large and well-preserved city center with many small streets, nice stores and many terraces. For most tourists, a city trip to Palma de Mallorca will not be the main goal, but during a beach and/or nature vacation in Mallorca, it is definitely a nice change and recommended to visit the capital. With as many as 10 million visitors a year, the island is a real tourist magnet. Since the Palma de Mallorca attractions are at reasonable distances from each other you will have to use public transport. You have several options such as a good network of buses and metro, but even easier is the tourist Hop on Hop off bus with 20 stops whose tickets you can easily order in advance. Another option is by “galera,” a horse-drawn carriage in which the coachman tells you about the many sights you will see along the way. The city is also perfect to explore by bicycle; here you can even book completely organized bicycle tours to discover the city.
Basically, you can divide Mallorca into three regions, each with its own character. The west to northwest of Mallorca. Here you will find the Tramuntana Mountains with lots of natural beauty and authentic Spanish villages such as Valldemossa, Sóller, Fornalutx and Deià. The second region is Alcúdia in the north-northeast with its long white beaches and convenient location for excursions or a road trip. Finally, you have the east coast of Mallorca – loved for its beautiful bays with lovely – between the rocks beaches and many tourist resorts. The south of Mallorca is best known for the town of El Arenal, Playa de Palma and the capital Palma de Mallorca. The central interior is flat and not really fascinating to travel through as a tourist.
The island of Mallorca is a versatile vacation destination with turquoise-blue sea, white beaches, rock-encircled coves (calas), rugged mountains, picturesque sandstone villages and a lively capital.
