Tren de Soller (Soller Railway) – if you are visiting Majorca, a trip to Soller on the Soller Railway is an absolute must on any vacation agenda. Soller is tucked up in the mountains and a sleepy little town that is well worth visiting. Between the city’s unique charm and the cuisine, you will be glad you made the trip.
Puig de Pollenca – if medieval architecture and spectacular old structures is your thing, don’t leave this attraction off your holiday itinerary. The medieval chapel and its watchtower provide the visitors with spectacular panoramas of the city of Pollenca.
Es Trenc – considered to be one of the nicer beaches of Majorca. A word of caution though – it is also considered to be the finest nude beach in the entire world, so this is not a family venue. However, it is a very peaceful beach with its azure blue waters and pristine white sandy beaches. If you can handle the nudity, don’t miss out on this beach.
