However, during the festival week, which this year was the first week of July, loud music is played from a platform by the marina which sometimes continues through the...

    Majorca Island Off The Beaten Path

    Deia, on the rugged west coast of the island is a quiet village (no tourist buses allowed) which has attracted many artists and literary figures over the years. Don't venture here if you suffer from travel sickness - typical mountain roads, lots of twists and turns and 'don't look down' views!!

    Palma de Mallorca Off The Beaten Path

    Go to Sa Colabra in the mountains and although you drive for miles around bends on narrow roads it's worth it when you get to the beach of Cala Tuent. Pebbly but definitely quiet and off the beaten track. The man made cleft in the rock is the coolest to drive through and the scenery spectacular.

Monestir de Nostra Senyora de Lluc (Monastery of Our Lady of Lluc) will surprise you when you see it first time standing out against the greens and grays of surrounding mountains. Prehistoric inhabitants deified the local oak woods, and the Romans...
