Niche Mallorca

There are small villages and beautiful inland countryside-not unlike Surrey or Yorkshire in England, but warmer and drier!
There are areas of natural heritage including national parks with protected species of wildlife.
There’s art and culture, dry land and water sport in abundance and regional food and wine to enjoy.

Specialised Tastes

In fact there’s something for everyone, whatever age you are or unique tastes you have.
How about cartology, star gazing or Spanish military memorabilia if you like something a little different?
Or discover stretches of rugged, unspoilt coastline and less visited coves on the island.

Tourists Behaving Badly

The last decade has seen multi-million euro investments into Mallorca’s touristy areas to get rid of bad stigma. Mainly the investment has gone into the grotty ‘night-life’ areas associated with most of the bad press. These areas have always been a small minority but have lowered the island’s reputation due to tourists behaving badly abroad. Previously run down and high rise accommodations have been re-vamped and transformed into 5 star accommodations. Some have been knocked down and re-built completely. Most of the areas affected are on Mallorca’s south coast.
