Summer is heating things up here in Mallorca, it’s always magical to be back in Mallorca, Spain. My other home, the place where my soul feels full. The heat is pretty intense, although life in Mallorca is always pretty hot. With endless activities and adventures to be had, I have been enjoying some stunning sightseeing around the island and making my list of everything I want to do while I am here.
The marina’s are always endlessly lined with yachts, which really makes me crave some sailing adventures. It feels like forever since I have been on the water with sails up.
Cycling is a huge sport here and another one of my favorite activities, the coastline does not disappoint when you are cycling down the bike path.
It is therapy for the soul as well as a heart pumping workout. That is a massive win in my books. I make it a point to get out and enjoy some good cycles.
I am always so impressed with these avid cyclists climbing mountains on the narrow steep roads around the island. It amazes me the terrain I see some of them on. Needless to say, I am not quite at that level.
The array of beautiful food you can get at the markets is something to be massively appreciated. Everything your heart could desire and then some is beautifully and proudly on display.
While in the market it is a must to indulge in a couple Spanish tapa dishes, adding a side of bubbly is never a bad idea either.
There truly is beauty to be appreciated around every other corner in the main city Palma de Mallorca. Palma always has an endless high energy vibe to it.
Catch ups and coffee dates are a favorite past time for me here as well.
If your keen to cover a lot of surface area of the island in a day, then renting a car and cruising around is your best bet. The mind blowing beauty when you are driving through the mountains is always spectacular.
Sa Colobra is an incredible spot bursting with beauty, the perfect place to give your eyes a feast. The road to get there is known as one of the most scenic roads in the world. It was built in a way as to avoid making tunnels through the mountains. The road is built as though it is in the shape of a snake, weaving in and out, with more then 50 curves and sharp turns, and did I mention how extremely narrow they are. Definitely a road trip that you won’t soon forget.
Basking in the ambiance of Sa Colobra is well worth the drive.
I love the tunnels carved straight through the mountain, it is always a great way to cool down from the hot sun as the caves have a very chill temperature. The earthy smell inside is also pretty enjoyable.
My advice would be to open your heart to take in all of the abundant beauty on offer.
You will never be short of incredible views and fantastic restaurants. This place called Rancho Grande popped out of nowhere while cruising the North of the Island, it was too enticing to pass up, and the sunset was perfectly ambiant for the occasion.
At 10pm under the moonlight on the terrace you can enjoy a Spanish horse show, followed by a fine flamenco dance.
Sometimes the most spontaneous stops are the most memorable.
This road trip was finished off with a little pit stop and stroll in one of my most beloved places – the town of Deia.
This beautiful town is build on the hillsides above the sea, and is oozing with charm and class. Some of the most expensive homes in the world reside on these mountains. I always enjoy a visit to this elegant little town.
Ahh yes, summer luvin’ happens so easy when your playing in Mallorca. This Island is truly a spectacular place.
