    Palma de Mallorca Tourist Traps

    The Inca Market is something the tourist board advertizes as something to see. We went. It was nothing more than a large flea market at best. Nothing of real interest was sold here - leather purses, kitchenware, t-shirts, underwear, plants, etc. Also, the prices aren't really all that great. The shopping along the strip in Alcudia is actually...

  • The West End, San Antonio.

    Ibiza Tourist Traps

    Great if you like hoards of drunken Brits marauding around the streets looking for members of the opposite sex in a drunk enough state not to reject them, puddles of vomit and urine (I'm not exaggerating!) karaoke bars and Irish theme pubs. The morning light brings a place for these people to return for their full English Breakfast at Koppas Cafe...

    Majorca Island Tourist Traps

    Beware of the very tall man 6ft 4" who slowly walks round the three beaches of Palma Nova pretending to look at the ladies when in fact he is looking for the ladies bags. He carries a towel over his shoulder and also a T Shirt which he puts on and off regurlarly. He walks up beside people and drops his t shirt over the purse or bag to make it look...

    Palma de Mallorca Tourist Traps

    There's some really irritating thing about Mallorca: "People see tourists as walking wallets". There are lots of really hard to reach beaches, that after some almost suicinding driving experiences (throught roads where two cars almost can't pass aside, at the same time in diferent direccions), you discover that you are forced to pay up to 6 euros...

  • Caves

    Majorca Island Tourist Traps

    Wonderful flyer pictures and descriptions which are overrated. Nice enough for those that like caves but very large groups are ushered through the cave system on hard on the feet paths. Very crowded and you are unable to walk at a leaisurely pace. hearded into an underground auditorium to hear a few musicians play on darkened boats, then hearded...

  • Overpricing

    Palma de Mallorca Tourist Traps

    Don't go to the Nu-parc bar / cafe beside the lake opposite the Cathedral unless you want to order the most expensive beer or coffee in Palma. The waitresses need a lesson in customer service and the chairs break when you sit down. The view is quite nice but not worth stopping here for. Enjoy the view of the fountain and the Cathedral long enough...

  • Soller & Puerto de Soller

    Majorca Island Tourist Traps

    In my opinion Soller is almost a tourist trap. It is not an ugly town, but it's not a nice place. Do some shopping, have a rest or a stroll. You coud go to Biniaraix; a small village 1,5 km far from Soller. From there you can continue through a path to Fornalutx. This is a beautiful village four km. from Soller (see pics). Another idea; catch the...

    Palma de Mallorca Tourist Traps

    Overall we really enjoyed our holiday to Majorca but we did find it very british and lacking in culture in the resorts.There were british pubs,amusements and everything was in english so it sometimes felt as if you were missing out on the spanish culture.There were Burger Kings, KFC's and Pizza Huts everywhere.Sometimes it was difficult to find a...
