Travel: 5 things to do in Palma, Mallorca

what to do in Palma

I’m having a bit of a love affair with Mallorca at the moment, here’s my 5 fave things to do.

1. Wandering the streets of Palma

Great shopping, tapas and drinks plus stunning architecture. It’s like a mini Barcelona.

2. Roast Lamb at Es Verger

According to Rick Stein ‘the best lamb he’s ever tasted’ and cooked in 100 year old ovens, you have to drive (or hike) to the top of a mountain to visit Es Verger to taste it’s rough no frills but very very tasty menu. The view from the top is mesmerising.

3. A visit to Castell Son Claret

This elegant, chic and tranquil 5 star hotel an easy half drive out of Palma. Beautiful service, food and a lovely place to to have a long Rosé fuelled lunch. I actually have a friend who is a Chef at their restaurants which is how I discovered this place. They have beautiful orchards of Lemon trees  – try the lemon tart so you can taste them.

I do love a beach, particularly one with turquoise Carribbean-esque seas and Sangria on tap. Blissful!

5. La Residencia in Deia

Ok so this was a major spendy treat for lunch but La Residencia in the romantic village of Deia is pretty special. A beautiful sprawling hotel, surrounded by perfectly manicured grounds and green verdant hills that roll straight down to the sea. My pictures don’t really do it justice. Food and service were lovely of course.
