Posted on: July 27th, 2013 by admin No Comments

Deia

Surrounded by the Tramuntana Mountains, Deia is a stunning hillside village on the North West coast of Mallorca. Not only can you enjoy the beautiful old buildings and olive groves, Deia also has its own intimate beach. It is tranquil, quiet and totally relaxing – just what you want from an unwinding holiday.  With its steep passages and dainty restaurants, the old city of Deia is perfect for exploring!

Valledemossa

Also in the Tramuntana Range is the town of Valledemossa. The streets are decorated with flower displays and luscious plants making them a beautiful sight. Instead of a beach, Valledemossa offers a different experience. It is home to a little harbour called Port Valledemossa which is about 6km away. As it is near to the coast the hiking trails that lead through the mountain allow you to have fantastic sea views.

 

 

Cap De Formentor.

The stunning views and amazing sandy beaches make Cap De Formentor in Mallorca a great place to holiday. The actual make up of the place is phenomenal with huge cliffs and trees growing from seemingly nowhere, it feels like being on a desert island at times. The winding road is worthy of the visit alone, the views from the different twists and turns over rock faces is incredible.
One of the most popular tourist attractions is the beautiful beach. Away from the typical Mallorca hotspots, but close enough to venture there if you wanted, Cap De Formentor is a great place to stay and it can be strongly recommended.

Nikki Beach Club is the most glamorous venue in Mallorca. Located at Calvia Beach, on the south-west coast of the Balearic island, Nikki Beach hosts varied events all summer long from the famous “White Party” at the start of the season, to jazz evenings, intimate soirees, and the notorious “Amazing Sunday” parties.

Nikki Beach Club features champagne parties, classic cocktails and world-class entertainments amidst the swaying palm trees on the pure white beach. No wonder it’s so popular with the “in-crowd!” With a globally-inspired cuisine at Nikki’s beach-side restaurant, live acts, and podium dancers, a visit to Nikki’s is a summer experience not to be missed.

The restaurant at Las Terrazas beach club in Illetes, Mallorca serves a varied menu to match whatever time of day you happen to be there. With a fantastic view from its prime spot, overlooking the beautiful sandy cove, you can breakfast while you watch the sunrise, stop off for a light lunch in between swims or settle in with the evening crowd to sample the Mediterranean cuisine or some delicious cocktails, while the resident DJs set the tone.

Whether you’re enjoying the heat of the day or the ambience of a moonlit night, you can soak up the atmosphere on the terrace that gives the club its name. With beach showers to keep you feeling fresh, changing rooms for your privacy, and kayaks and pedal boats to enable you to fully explore the warm, clear waters, you won’t want to leave the area from dusk ’til dawn.

Rafael Nadal chooses to chill in Majorca

Majorcan-born Rafael Nadal was spotted in his home town after his recent Wimbledon defeat, relaxing on a yacht off the coast of the island with his girlfriend, Maria Perello. Nadal, who was a Wimbledon winner in 2008 and 2010, suffered the humiliation of being knocked out in the first round this year. The defeat was a surprise shock, as Nadal had won the French Open only one month earlier, his record-breaking eighth win of that Grand Slam title. This year saw Nadal reach nine straight finals, seven of which he won outright, so he must be hoping that the Wimbledon first-round loss was just a temporary setback. Nadal will be taking part in the Montreal Masters in August, and is spending his time in Spain training and getting in shape for that event, as well as taking time out for some onboard romance and a chance to chill in Majorca.

One of the top attractions in Mallorca is Bellver Castle, which has become very popular with visitors in the past few years. This 14th century fortress is a unique example of a Spanish round castle. The circular keep has three round towers attached, and a separate donjon linked by a narrow bridge.


A prison for over two hundred years, it now houses a museum dedicated to the history of Palma de Mallorca. Visitors can visit many parts of the castle, including the throne room, kitchens and the beautiful San Marcos Chapel. Around the central cistern are two levels of Gothic arches. Bellver Castle offers spectacular views of Palma de Mallorca, the city’s cathedral and the bay beyond.

The castle is open from 08.30 to 20.00, except for half-day openings on Mondays. Visitors can travel there by taxi, or one of four local bus routes serving the castle.
