Mallorca travel story
Mallorca island is a Mediterranean destination frequented by tourists from all over Europe expenditure by the British. Less fashionable of the other islands of the Balearic Islands offers a context quite varied possibilities of stay. The coast of Mallorca has a contrasting landscape, on the one hand, the mountains of the Sierra de Tramuntana plunging to the sea, from other the coast with a myriad of beaches and coves. On the North coast, continuing from the East to the West, passes from wilderness areas to areas of high urbanization, where we can admire beaches super crowded that offer all the types of services, such as the bay of Pollenca or the Bay of Alcudia. The South coast, on the other hand, both in the eastern and western, alternates between crowded beaches like those of Manacor (East) and Palma (west), small pristine beaches and secluded coves, perfect for those who want a little of intimacy.
My experience in this island has brought me to stay in the area of la cala mail Canyamel on the north-eastern coast of island, point from which i made many trips by renting a car. Only by having an independent means you have the possibility to visit the various parts of this island so different from each other as described above.. The hotel where i stayed was the Canyamel Classic, a structure positioned very close to the beach with amenities and offer on-line services to other hotel of middle class of this island. Mallorca is rather extensive and a stay of a week does not allow you to explore all that is necessary to make choices based on their tastes and the amount of time available. Certainly the east coast and part of the north, are to be see as they are the most beautiful parts of this island, Palma de Mallorca is a city to visit as other smaller centers inside that have various and interesting features. Palma de Mallorca is one true city of island to explore in a day. It is an elegant city, active by day and lively by night. Its center is diverse and consists of long tree-lined avenues, art nouveau buildings, cobbled alleys and gothic churches. It is also a city crowded with tourists with many souvenir shops all equal not to mention the area toward the sea strongly get overbuilt with many palaces and skyscrapers.
As it was called the east coast is the most interesting and beautiful, here you can find centers very known from a tourist point of view as Cala Rajada, a cala devoid of beach center but very popular rich with restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Descending toward the south are very many beaches and coves, we cite cala Gat small but beautiful with its sea front of vivid colors of green and blue, cala Son Moll immediately after Cala Rajada, cala from San Font very particular and tiny, cala Canyamel quiet and secluded, Cala Bona and cala Millor much tourist and down until you arrive in Portocristo, an interesting and characteristic narrow country lanes and streets and then continue toward cala Anguilla and Cala Estany not very large, Cala Domingos, teeming with tourists, for then to reach the fishing village of Portocolom in which deserves stop.
The north coast of island from the tip more east of Capdepera to continue continue toward the west with a stretch with a few drops (Mesguida and cake) in a context wild and rocky. Here we find the Natural Park of the peninsula of Levante was born precisely to protect area from touristic settlements. The coast then continues by degrading progressively up to the broad plains on which overlook long beaches such as that of the Bay of Alcudia. These are areas of high urbanisation dense attracts tourists from all over Europe.
The visit of island ended with a tour at nside touching small countries and interesting towns such as the medieval Alcudia and Artà, and then gazed on the chain of mountains of the Sierra de Tramuntana where deserves a visit to pleasant towns of Soller, Deia and Valledèmossa.
