Although a small island, Majorca is a veritable treasure trove of things to see and do. Let’s take a closer look at five of the best things to do in Majorca!

Ride the train to Soller.
Constructed over 100 years ago, the wooden railway was originally used by farmers to deliver citrus fruits to Majorca’s capital city of Palma. Today, visitors can board the train in Palma and take a 17 mile journey through mountain tunnels, past forests and groves, to arrive in the charming town of Soller. Take in an hour’s worth of the islands natural beauty, and do remember your camera!

Visit the Aquarium.
One of the most popular attractions on the island, Palma’s modern aquarium makes for a fantastic day out for visitors of all ages. Built in 2007 and home to over 7000 different species of marine life, the building itself sits just 50 metres from the sea. For the more daring adventurers, there’s even the opportunity to dive with the sharks!

Bask in Alcudia’s historic beauty.
Alcudia is a popular and modern resort, but for those of us who enjoy a little culture, the old town is well worth a trip. Ancient walls surround the maze of medieval paths and alleys, providing tourists with an authentic taste of Majorca. With pavement cafés, colourful fiestas, and a bustling weekly market, Alcudia’s old town is the perfect place to while away a few hours.

Experience the Wild West.
Western Waterpark is situated in the town of Magaluf. As a complete family favourite, the park has facilities for toddlers, kids, and adults alike. Alongside the obligatory waterslides, there are relaxing rides for some chill-out time as well as professional diving events. Plenty of places to eat and drink make Western Waterpark a full day of absolute fun!

Take in the City.
Majorca’s capital city of Palma is a must-see destination in its own right. La Seu Cathedral, particularly, is a breathtaking sight, especially by night. With tapas bars, chic shopping, and the bustle of city life, there is something in Palma to suit any taste. Football fans can take a look at the Iberostar Stadium, home to RCD Mallorca, the only Spanish league club on the island.
