    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: While touring the island one day.. Many tourists thnk of Mallorca only as a party island or a place to go for the sun and teh beach. But Mallorca has a whole different side that many people don't see. Or maybe aren't terribly interested in. Which is a pitty of course. On the other hand, i prefer the uninterested to stay on their beaches and in their hotels and not spoil the beautiful Mallorca for the rest of us.

    What do see and do on Mallorca???

    We named him

    Favorite thing: Check out the countryside of Mallorca. You will find the real Mallorca, not the touristic side......

    Must sees are: Palma, Soller, Valdemossa and Alcudia (Alcudia not on a market day in August!) and a ride along the north west coastline!

    Fondest memory: The relaxing finca we stayed on..... and our nearly private pool there!

    Flower wheel windmills

    Favorite thing: This typical flower wheel windmills you can see especially in the south of majorca. They hem your way to the saltwork fields of Llevant with the pink-white gleaming salt lakes. In San Jordi a wonderful sandy beach with crystal clear water wait for you.

  • Get away from the tourist crowds

    by tina_vietnam Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Stay away from the big tourist centres like Cala Rajada, Acudia and El Arenal...take a car and escape to the countryside. You will love it.

    Fondest memory: Peaceful areas, lemon trees, goats, fields, beautiful fincas, small cafes on empty plazas, empty off-roads, small secluded beaches

  • Goats and Sheeps

    by tina_vietnam Written Feb 25, 2003
    one sheep out of hundreds

    Favorite thing: Enjoy plenty of 'määäähhh's of sheeps and goats surrounding your finca on the countryside. In the warm evening at sunset it (can) give you the feeling of being in paradise..very peaceful!.

    Fondest memory: Staying in a Finca-style Guesthouse called 'Monnaber Vell' in Campanet..in the evening hundreds of sheeps surrounded the rural finca with pool...you sleep so well (you do not have to count them for falling asleep, I promise you!!!)

    Get out of the tourist resorts...

    by Waoife Written Sep 4, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Get out of the tourist resorts & see the rest of Majorca. It's quite a bit island & has some really nice scenery - especially on the north of the island which only really has one majory resort (Alcudia)

    Favorite thing: On Majorca, I loved the remote countryside, secluded beaches and the cute small vilages.
