Vacation to Sunny Majorca

Vacation to Sunny Majorca

Something a little different today as I’ve recently come back from beautiful Majorca and wanted to share my thoughts, favourite place and photos with you all.

During our vacation we stayed in the town of Palma Nova which is approximately 20 minutes away from the capital- Palma De Majorca. (Which I fell in love with)

The location was ideal; we were a stones throw away from the beach and only a short coach journey to various shopping centres, Marina Port de Mallorca and other sight seeing/excursion hot spots.

My favourite place and highlight of the holiday was spending a few days in the city of Palma. (My photographs just don’t do this gorgeous city justice)

The combination of quaint cobbled streets, a colourful array of little boutiques and pastel buildings makes it very difficult not to fall in love this undeniably charming City.

SHOPPING

Shortly after stepping off the coach, We were welcomed by a tourist information stand, which is ideal for people who want to get the most out of their visit. The booth offers maps, attraction brochures and ticket purchasing facilities.

We chose to explore around the city without any time restraints, so decided against booking any guided tours. As you walk around the high-street there are various street performers along with craftsmen selling hand made and personalised souvenirs.

The shops were the main highlight for me, as they had a wide range to suit a variety of different demographics and types of shopper.

These Included high end brands such as Mulberry, Hugo Boss and Gucci, as well as high street brands like Zara and small independent boutiques.

FOOD

If you plan on stopping for some food along the way, Palma has you covered!

Similar to the shopping vibe, the city offers traditional Spanish cuisine, TAPAS TAPAS TAPAS! As well as a diverse array of food to suit all. (If your fussy, they’re is also a Mcdonalds and Burger-king!)

We stopped in a few coffee shops including Cappuccino, which is Spain’s equivalent of our Starbucks/Costa.

STYLE

The style in Majorca much like the majority of hotter countries is cool casual. Due to the climate people tend wear very loose fitted clothing. The women have a boohoo/bohemian look about them which i absolutely loved! This was reflected in the smaller vintagey stores which sold a lot of gypsy-style skirts and white linen tops.

As I have light skin that tends to burn, I covered up in a light maxi skirt combined with an off the shoulder top. This avoided getting sunburnt as well as keeping me cool and comfortable.
