Mallorca

As well as being a very popular destination for sun worshippers with a love of cocktails and clubbing, this Balearic jewel has a long and rich history, breathtaking landscapes and an irresistible charm. Mallorca’s beaches, however, with their golden sands and crystalline waters, remain the island’s biggest draw.

Here you find designer fashions, their own low and medium-priced lines, enormous perfumery and make-up departments, leather goods in all price ranges, toys, children’s clothes, art materials, food and delicatessen, home furnishing devices and garden furniture. There is a large Corte Inglés department store near Plaza España and a smaller one next to the old city centre on Jaime lll.

Passport/Visa

Spain can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.

Best Time to Visit

Mallorca is undoubtedly a summer destination. June to September have hot beach weather and large crowds of partiers and sun-seekers. If you prefer a more relaxed cultural vacation with smaller crowds, or a visit to enjoy the island's natural wonders, visit at any other time of the year (but avoid the rainy months of October and November).
