We have offers so that these and other escapes are always up to your expectations, and at the best price.
Make a balloon trip over Majorca
We open our list of ideas for a romantic getaway in Majorca in style. Literally, since we want to propose you to make a balloon trip in Majorca so that you can see the island from the air. This activity takes place at sunrise, when the atmosphere is more stable and when there is less wind. Around 07:00 h, with the sunrise, the organizing companies start to inflate the sail of the hot-air balloon, process in which the assistants can collaborate.
The Manacor hot air balloon station is one of the most recurrent departure points, although it is not the only one. Once the basket begins to rise, you and your companion can see the best landscapes of Majorca and, depending on the route, the island of Cabrera and even Menorca. Once on land, the journey ends with a glass of cape, the presentation of a diploma and breakfast, depending on the package contracted. Would you like something even more special? In that case, remember that you can hire a private balloon trip, exclusively for the two of you.
Discover the wine routes of Majorca
There’s a well-known saying in Spanish that says that grapes and cheese taste like kissing. Would you like to try it out with a wine tasting in Majorca, or a wine pairing? The area covered by the Pla and Llevant de Mallorca Designation of Origin, created in 1999, is one of the areas with the greatest winemaking tradition, as it dates back to Roman times. Among the villages where wine is made, the most important are Algaida, Ariany, Artà, Campos, Capdepera, Felanitx, Llucmajor, Manacor, Maria de la Salut, Montuïri, Muro, Petra, Porreres, Sant Joan, Sant Llorenç, Santa Margalida, Sineu and Vilafranca.
In total, the island is home to nearly 70 wineries, many of which offer guided tours and tastings, where you and your partner can taste nearly 300 types of Majorcan wine… and toast to you.
Visit the villages of the Tramuntana mountains
Among our ideas for a couple’s escape to Majorca, we could not miss a route through the most beautiful villages of Majorca. Despite the fact that the island has a lot to choose from, many of them are concentrated in the Tramuntana mountains, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2011. Among the most photogenic villages to visit by car are Deià, which has been a center of attraction for artists from other parts of the world; Fornalutx, with its narrow, charming cobbled streets; Banyalbufar, near beautiful coves; Valldemossa, where Frédéric Chopin and George Sand took refuge to live out their love, and the evocative Sóller, surrounded by orange trees and home to a curious vintage train. Don’t miss out on this!
Visit the Caves of Drach
Located in Porto Cristo or Portocristo, in the municipality of Manacor, these are among the best caves in Majorca. The Caves of Drach are four caves that are millions of years old and connect with one another. They are 1.2 km long and have a maximum depth of 25 m. These caves hide inside them impressive stalactites and stalagmites and a large lake: Lake Martel, one of the largest underground lakes on the planet. Thanks to a lighting system, it can be visited by boat. It is also the stage for classical music concerts. Can you imagine attending one in good company?
Watching the sunset at Cape Formentor
In addition to being the northernmost point of the Majorcan coast, this geographical feature is also a corner of great scenic value, thanks to its cliffs that are continually beaten by the foamy waves of the Mediterranean. This is why some Majorcans refer to this cape as the “meeting point of the winds”. Furthermore, it is an ideal place to see one of the best sunsets in Majorca – see for yourself! And when you finish, take the opportunity to visit Alcúdia, a picturesque town that still has its perfectly preserved medieval wall. It will be like travelling back in time!
Walking along a deserted beach
Although February is not the best time of year to swim in some of Majorca’s nearly 300 beaches and coves, this is not only a drawback, but also an unbeatable opportunity to walk hand in hand on the sand. Without going any further, you will have the place chosen for you and your partner alone. What do you think? Among the most beautiful beaches in Majorca, Es Trenc, in the south of the island and just over 3 km from Còlonia Sant Jordi, stands out. Another magical spot by the sea is Cales de Mallorca. What are you waiting for?
Enjoy a boat trip along the coast of Majorca
A boat trip along the 555 km of the island’s coast is one of the best ideas for a couple’s escape to Majorca. Throughout the whole of Majorca, you and your companion can hire a wide variety of catamaran excursions. Get ready to witness the beauty of its coastline, dotted with unspoilt coves, islets, cliffs and many other surprises. Are you going to miss it?
Anyway, the list of romantic plans in Majorca does not end here, as we would need much more than a post in this blog to summarize all the options: relaxing in a hotel with a spa or a rural house, taking a kayak trip, tasting the typical dishes of Majorcan cuisine at a dinner in one of the island’s charming restaurants or simply having a drink on the Palma de Majorca promenade. In addition, you can take advantage of your stay in the largest Balearic city by discovering everything there is to see in Palma. For a romantic getaway, we recommend the Almudaina Palace, its fascinating Gothic cathedral, Bellver Castle or some of the patios in the old town.
