Classical concerts are also regularly held in the cave.


Picturesque mountain village in the Tramuntana

Valldemossa is one of the most beautiful places on Mallorca . The small mountain village is located in the northwest of the island.

The many small winding streets and pretty houses give the place a very special charm .

Our tip: Port de Valldemossa is just before Valldemossa. There is a very nice beach and you can enjoy the view of the mountain scenery.

The most beautiful beaches in Mallorca

Mallorca has many great beaches. Turquoise bays with crystal clear water are particularly impressive. We show you our most beautiful beaches and bays in Mallorca :

It Trenc

Fantastically clear water

The paradisiacal Es Trenc beach is a real highlight due to the crystal clear water .

It is one of Mallorca’s most popular beaches and is even one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe .

In summer it can therefore often be very crowded, but in the off-season it is quieter there and you can enjoy the beach without crowds .

Playa de Formentor

Pure Caribbean flair

The narrow but long sandy beach Playa de Formentor is surrounded by pine trees and with a bit of luck you will find a shady spot underneath.

White sand and crystal clear water also make bathing on this beach something very special.

Our tip: The Cap de Formentor, probably the most famous vantage point on Mallorca, is very close by.

Playa de Muro

Wide and flat beach

The Playa de Muro beach is located in the north of Mallorca in a wooded dune area and is almost 5 kilometers long.

Since the beach is large and the water stays shallow for a long time, it is very suitable for holidays with children .

The turquoise-blue water simply invites you to a beach day with the whole family.
