Autumn is a special time to enjoy Mallorca with all your senses. You have lots to choose from if you’re the type who loves history, photographing picture-postcard landscapes, seeing unique sunsets and sunrises, or maybe you’re into hiking. Are you a proper foodie and want to try culinary delights? We ran the numbers and… Mallorca is the place for you!
But… You only have one weekend ahead of you and a lot of things to see and visit. Are you ready? I’ll show you my ideal weekend to enjoy autumn in Mallorca.
Welcome! Even though it’s autumn, the beaches of Mallorca are always spectacular, so it’s time to take the car and head to the east of the island, to the town of Capdepera. There are two spectacular sandy beaches waiting for you here: Cala Agulla and Cala Mesquida. The latter is home to the largest dunes in the Balearic Islands.
Next stop: the town of Alcudia, from which you can get to Muro Beach.
Fine sand, turquoise waters and jetties that have become a true icon of the place. And if you love history, in the town of Alcudia you can walk around its walls and travel back hundreds of years.
You have to make the most of every minute, so from Alcudia you’ll get to the icing on the cake: the Formentor lighthouse.
Autumn in Mallorca makes the sunset in Formentor even more spectacular; it’s enough to take your breath away. No words are necessary, just let the emotions wash over you.
We’re starting a new day. I have prepared a visit to Sierra de Tramuntana, a must-see spot that was declared a World Heritage Site in 2011. Not to be missed!
Sierra de Tramuntana
Be amazed by its picturesque streets, the Gardens of Rey Juan Carlos I or the Real Cartuja de Valldemossa, an old palace of one of the kings of Mallorca, and known worldwide for being a home to composer Frédéric Chopin and French writer George Sand. And to make the walk more enjoyable, I suggest you try one of the star products of traditional Majorcan confectionery: potato coca, a true symbol of Valldemossa. Continuing with the route, it’s time to head for our next stop.
Charming, magical and an “inspirational” town for many artists, some of whom will remain there for all eternity. I recommend you visit the Cañones viewpoint, the church of San Juan Bautista and if you’re into hiking, the Camino de los Pintores (Painters’ Way). Its prints will leave you speechless!
Ready to continue? Sóller, the town of the seven streams, awaits.
Plaza de la Constitución, calle de la Luna, the church of San Bartomeu, its modernist architecture and of course, its famous train, which helped put an end to the town’s isolation from the rest of the island in the 19th century. As long as you’re here, take part in the experience and ride the tram to the port to cap off another intense day.
Majorca, with a surface area of 3,640 m2, almost a million inhabitants and more than 250 beaches, is waiting for you to explore it so you can discover the culture, traditions and people of Mallorca.
I have a lot left to show you so if you’d like, we can see it together. No matter where you’re reading this from, Air Europa can bring you closer. Whether from Europe, America or Spain, find out how to get here and come enjoy autumn in Mallorca. I’ll be waiting for you!
