Hi there pretties! So how about five months after my vacation I finally start posting my travel diary of Mallorca?! Shaaaaaaaaame, like Mitchell Pritchett would say. But better late than never, right? I took so many pictures (about 500!) and these posts are going to be very extended! I probably have to divide this up to 4 posts. Don’t worry, I’m not going to post all the pictures I took. 😉 Going through all these pretty pictures during winter makes me appreciate the sun, sand and sea so much! I booked 11 days in Cala d’Or, but I also traveled around the island as well.
The streets are even so gorgeous.
Walking down the streets and seeing all these vibrant flowers makes me so happy!
The first thing I did after my arrival was walking around town. Discover the beaches, restaurants and its pretty nature.
Cala d’Ors beaches are little bays which have the clearest turquoise water ever. Above was the first water I saw after my arrival. I knew immediately that I made the right decision on this summer destination!
Do you see that dark spot on this picture?
Duh, how can you miss it. Yeah, well… There was a grain of sand behind the lens and I didn’t notice it until the 4th day… So the first pictures are blessed with a dark spot. Girl, you are such an idiot.
Can you believe these waters!? I could spend all day in it.
The marina of Cala d’Or.
Birthday dinner! Oh yeah, and sangria.
Our hotel by night.
When I arrived at my hotel room after dinner, a chilled bottle of Cava was waiting to be popped! The staff knew it was my birthday, so sweet!
This gorgeous view is Cala Ferrera, the bay where the hotel was located at. From all the bays – within walking distance – I liked ‘mine’ the best. I was staying at the Barceló Ponent Playa. I can definitely recommend this hotel, the staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean, the location is perfect and the beds were excellent. The only thing I didn’t liked about the hotel was the food, especially dinner. Which is not really a problem since there are a lot of restaurants in Cala d’Or where you can have dinner instead! If you’re a foodie like me, just don’t book half or full board!
The first day after I picked up my rental I drove to Cala Mondragó. It is a small beach situated within Mondragó National Park in the south east corner of Mallorca, near Cala d’Or. It has been protected from development and is considered to be one of Mallorca’s most beautiful areas, with it’s sand dunes, pine forests, beautiful coastline and rocky coves.
This place was absolutely one of my favorites! I bet you can see why.
An attempt to be mermaid-like.
The crystal waters never bore me.
What do you think of our holiday destination so far? Have you ever visited Mallorca?
One travel diary down, at least three more to go! 😉 I hope you enjoy them!
