Majorca is famed for its many beaches that have clean white sand and crystal clear waters. If you want to avoid the crowds, head to one of the less developed beaches such as Es Carbo or Son Serra De Marina. The capital of Palma is certainly worth a visit, with a famous cathedral it is a pleasant and interesting city centre to explore. Make sure to check out the many restaurants there, and try some of the local food such as ‘sobrasada’, a spicy sausage made of pork and paprika, or the breakfast sweet ‘ensaimada’, a spiral-shaped bun you can only get on Majorca. The seafood paella is a recommended dish too. Trips to to the large salt marsh of S'Albufera are popular - it’s near the town Alcudia. Here you´ll see many bird species including warblers, heron, ducks and waders.
