Hello Baby Blog’s Guide to Mallorca // Part Two

As promised here’s my ‘Guide to Mallorca – Part Two’.

If you missed my first post that detailed our favourite beaches, bars and restaurants, then you can read all about it here.

In this post I wanted to talk about the best places to stay on the Island and our favourite things to see and do when we’re not relaxing on a beach.

Nakar Hotel, Palma //

Nakar Hotel

Located on Mallorca’s shop-lined Avenida Jaume III, Nakar Hotel is a boutique-style hotel with modern rooms and a gorgeous rooftop infinity pool.

St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort //

St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort

Beautifully situated with views across the Mediterranean Sea, The St Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort combines a superb location with elegance, luxury and fine service for a wonderfully relaxing stay. Pricey, but oh so worth it.

Can Simoneta //

Can Simoneta

Can Simoneta Hotel is a 5 star hotel in the north of the island. With its beautiful cliff top location, it offers amazing sea views and is most suited to those seeking a child-free holiday, where you can enjoy the sun, landscape, tranquility and peace.

Cap Rocat //

Cap Rocat

Cap Rocat is a former military fortress located in the most secluded area of the bay of Palma de Mallorca. More heritage site than hotel, it really is a stunning, unique offering, but the fortress’ architecture isn’t suited to little ones and children can only stay if they are over 15 years old.

Villa Italia, Port d’Andratx //

Villa Italia

Located in one of our favourite ports, Port d’Andratx, Villa Italia is a beautifully restored 1950’s villa perched on a steep hillside overlooking the port.

Port d’Andratx is full of amazing restaurants and has some lovely beaches nearby so I’d definitely add it to the hit list. Here are a few photos of our Boden clad brood out and about in Port d’Andratx.

Palma to S’Arenal Cycling Route //

When you fancy a day away from the beach, or when the weather is a bit inclement, I cannot recommend this cycling route enough. It’s flat, scenic and its purpose made cycle paths ensure it’s safe for all the family. Passing through Portixol and Ciudad Jardin, there are a number of refreshment stops on route and a fab playground or two for the littles. The whole journey is approximately 6 miles one way, although you can obviously cut that short if you so wish.

There are numerous bike hire shops in Palma that you can just walk into and hire bikes on the spot, but if you have children and need to hire bike seats or tag alongs, I would highly recommend booking ahead. We didn’t and sadly could only get our hands on one tag along, which meant poor Jack had to squeeze into a seat that was far too small for him!

La Seu, Palma //

La Seu

Palma is best known for La Seu, its imposing cathedral which is well worth a look around. Don’t miss the rose window, one of the largest stained-glass windows in the world at 12m wide!

Dragonera //

Dragonera

A ferry leaves for Dragonera from Sant Elm in the south-west of Mallorca, every half an hour in high season. An uninhabited island, Dragonera is a nature reserve with brilliant walking trails and excellent snorkelling and swimming areas.

Sóller train and tram //

Soller train

The Sóller train and tram is a great day out for any train mad youngster (or adult!).

A must do on the Mallorca tourist map, the historic train runs from Palma to Sóller, winding through the mountains, over the beautiful Mallorcan countryside and through 13 tunnels of the Serra de Tramuntana. It really is a lovely journey and once you arrive in Sóller, you can hop on the the quaint and quirky Sóller tram that runs from the town to the port passing through numerous orange, lemon and olive groves en route.

A huge thanks to Boden for sending us all some lovely threads to wear on our jollies!

    Looks like a perfect place to visit with kids (and the short flight time is a bonus). Biking around is such a good idea to see the local area as well.ReplyCancel

    Oh wow, now I really want to go to Mallorca, who knew there were so many amazing places ot stay and visit on the island. My experience to date is just a brief visit into Palma and I stayed in Palma Nova, back when I was in my early 20’s. I’d certianly like the more cultured areas nowadays. Mich xReplyCancel

    I am gutted that the glitter spot jumper is out of stock at the moment as I just clicked through to buy it ha! It’s gorgeous and looks amazing on you :)

    I’m so jealous you’ve been to Mallorca, we went a few years ago and it was the best holiday!
