Maricel - Hospes Maricel & SPA
They do offer the so called “Best Breakfast in the world” - some mean eggs royale for example.

Well I’d say the view is even better. Pretty nice place to dive into. The coast of Calvià consists of many lovely little bays and beaches - all worth a stop.

One of the best things to do to get to know the island and a taste of local life is visiting as many of the markets as you can. Like this one in Esporles.
Esporles is situated at the foot of the Tramuntana mountains, only 15 km away from Palma and such a pretty little village. It is often left behind for close by Valldemossa which is great though because it is not as crowded and feels more local than its big sister on the north coast.
And this is what you get. Local produce. Juicy, crispy, tasty, incredibly sweet and beautiful. Give it a bit of salt, pepper, fresh basil and a splash of olive oil and you’ll be in tomato paradise at the least.
Cas Català
One of our favourite beaches and close to home is Ses Illetes. Crystal clear water, soft white sand and shallow so great for kids. There is also a nice little chiringuito and a few sunbeds dotted on the rocks around you if you prefer.
ses Illetes
Symbol of Palma and entrance landmark to one of the most beautiful Mediterranean towns. La Seu is a magnificent 14th century cathedral and, as the most emblematic building in Mallorca's capital, it’s a must-visit. It’s impossible to miss this imposing golden sandstone building: it’s one of Europe’s tallest Gothic structures, perched above Parc de la Mar and a superb sight for those arriving by sea.
Catedral-Basílica de Santa María de Mallorca
It’s nice to start your way through Palma in Santa Catalina. Loads of lively little bars and cafes, great international mixture of people and the Mercat de Santa Catalina right at the centre of it. I normally stop for a chai latte in one of my favourite places: Santina.
Santina Brunch & More
Healthy - and actually tasty. Breakfast Mango Bowl at Santina Santa Catalina.

Mallorcan architect and sculptor Guillem Sagrera led the building work of La Llotja of Palma between 1426 and 1447. La Llotja was used as the seat of the merchants’ guild. It is the most important example of a secular building in late Gothic Style on the Balearic Islands and an honorable example of the rich trading past of Palma back in the 15th century. Today this extraordinary heritage site is a magnificent art space in the middle of beautiful La Lonja in Palma, right opposite the sea.
Plaça de la Llotja
Strolling through Palma Old Town and popping into one of the many art galleries and beautiful courtyards. Like this one of Art Palace.
La Lonja Marina Charter
Stop for some tapas and to read a book at Can Bordoy. This grand house offers the biggest private garden in Palma and it’s restaurant “Botanic” food for the soul all day long. Healthy breakfast, bowls, snacks, brunch and dinner by chef Andres Benites. A very peaceful place to be.

This is called “The Secret Place” of Palma. And it is the most beautiful perfume shop I have ever seen and visited. Arquinesia. In a small side road you enter through a tiny door and go on a tour of scents. Each room tells a different story til you end up in a lovely little courtyard where you’ll find the whole collection to explore.
Arquinesia Perfumes
Time for some sweets. Palma Bread is Swedish run and offers beautifully crafted and very tasty buns, tarts and bread. Luckily they just opened another shop closer to home so I don’t need to drive into Palma to get my bun fix.

I always go for the cinnamon bun. Even if I was only planning on getting some bread.

And the fruit tart. Perfectly baked, creamy yummy custard plus the freshest, tastiest fruits on top.

Rent a bike in Can Pastilla and take it via Cala Gamba, Ciutat Jardin and Molinar to Portixol. You’ll ride into the sunset alongside sea and beach and can stop anytime for some nice tapas or seafood on the promenade.
Platja de Can Pastilla
Portixol is an old fishing village only two kilometers from Palma that turned into one of the nicest places to be for wining and dining. It’s got a vibrant atmosphere especially in the evenings with a mixture of locals and tourists. Best place for seafood is the “Ola del Mar”, if you seek something more simple yet tasty go for Tuna Tataki and Pizza at “Cocco”.
Dinner at Adelfas by Jens in Santa Ponça. Chef Jens Bräuning got his skills from Bertold Siber (one of the guys who brought Nouvelle Cuisine to Germany back then) and worked at Dorint Camp de Mar as well as Lila in Portals. This is his chilled creamy Andalusian gazpacho with boiled egg and crispy ham.
