Majorca Island Things to Do

Puerto de Soller
Puerto de Soller is a beautiful port town located on the North Coast of the island. This beach is less crowded than many others in the area, and is served by a tram so there is no need for car rental. The Tramuntana Mountains provide a beautiful backdrop for your day at the beach.
Cuevas del Drach
These caves, known as the Caves of the Dragon, are worth the trip to Porto Cristo. The caves are easily accessible from the road, but be certain to make the approach from Porto Cristo, and then simply follow the signs. Once inside, you are really in for a treat! The one-hour guided excursion ends with a mini Mozart concert.
