Discover Mallorca Day 1: the northeast of the islandCala Ratjada in Mallorca

Continuing along the same road you will arrive at Betlem, where after crossing some trails, you will access small coves with turquoise water as the protagonist.
Continuing with the route, the next stop this first day will be Son Serra de Marina. There you will find one of the best and most beautiful beaches of Mallorca. It is a practically virgin beach surrounded by a natural park. Undoubtedly, an idyllic place to relax until lunchtime.
After having lunch, the next stop will be Muro beach, which is once past Can Picafort. And finally, the lighthouse of Cala Ratjada, where you can reach the last sunbursts and dine in one of its many restaurants.
Day 2: The Tramontana mountain rangeDeià in the Tramontana mountain range
Declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco, the Tramontana mountain range is a mandatory stop and one of the most beautiful places on the entire island. On the climb to the top, and from the road, you can see gorges, caves, canyons and animals like goats or eagles.
Do not forget to stop at the monastery of Lluc, and in the prehistoric caves of Ses Cometes des Morts. They are two special places, different and full of mystery. You can also enjoy some of the beaches in the area, such as the famous Sa Calobra cove (watch out for the parking, is quite expensive).
Of course, you must visit Sóller, which is considered the capital of the Tramontana. It is a small town with narrow streets and squares surrounded by olive trees and orange trees. All this forms a beautiful postcard that will remain in your memory.
And finally on this second day to discover Mallorca, you must visit Deiá. It is a town from which peace emanates on all four sides, framed between the mountain and the sea. You will not regret spending the last hours of the day there.
Day 3: the east of the island
To compensate for the car hours of the previous day, this third day you can enjoy the beaches and coves of the east side of Mallorca. One of the most beautiful in this part of the island is Cala Varques. You will reach it after walking for about twenty minutes along a path that you can take after leaving the car in a parking located on the MA-4014.
In Manacor you will find two other coves, of great beauty, although quite crowded: Cala Anguila and Cala Mendia.
After spending the morning there, a good option for the afternoon is to visit the famous caves of Drach. It is one of the most famous places on the island and requires a virtually mandatory visit. Of course, keep in mind that the ticket is worth € 15.
Day 4: Cap FormentorCap Formentor
On this fourth day you will return to the west of Mallorca, making some stops along the way. The first visit will be Alcudia, a small walled village, which has one of the best beaches on the island: the cove of San Vicente.
We also recommend Cala des Mas Pas. There you will find a very special beach bar, nothing elegant, but you will love it, especially if you decide to return here in the afternoon. You will not regret.
After, you can go, through a mountain road, towards the north, towards Cap Formentor. When you arrive at one of its many viewpoints, its views will leave you breathless. Without a doubt, one of the postcards that you will remember from this trip.

This one of the most beautiful villages in Mallorca, without a doubt!
Another stop you can make this day is in Banyalbufar. It is a town not too crowded with a characteristic architecture of houses that seem to fall into the sea by the cliff.
