Travel Diary: Mallorca Part 2

Travel Diary Part 2, Mallorca, Spain | Layla Rosita, http://laylarosita.com

Hello babes! This part 2 of my travel diary of Mallorca is waayyyy overdue! My apologies honeys! The next part won’t take so long to publish! It’s the editing and selecting of the pictures that always take such a long time. The travel diaries of my latest two travel destinations – Basel and Winterberg – are already standing in the publish cue and I can’t wait to show them to you! But I figured I’ll have to finish the Mallorca travel diaries first!

While we’re vacationing on the balearic island, we also paid a visit to Palma. The capital of Mallorca, as you can see on the picture above. The city is absolutely gorgeous. It has a lot of history, beautiful architecture, the pretties stores (lots of shoe-shops!!!) and delightful restaurants.

The next day we visited Cala s’Almonia.

Cala s’Almonia is located in a picturesque little bay, which is framed by rocks and trees. The water is clean and crystal clear. To get there was a bit tricky though! The access to the beach is via a rather steep and long stone staircase! I was a little bit scared too!

But the views were breathtaking!

How beautiful is this? I love how secluded this place is.

The picture above is Cap de Ses Salines: Mallorca’s southernmost tip with a lighthouse dating back to 1863. There’s not much here at the cape, but stretching out along either side of it are wonderfully unspoiled beaches.

Travel Diary Part 2, Mallorca, Spain |Porto Petro | Layla Rosita, http://laylarosita.com

Nearby Cala d’Or is a small fishing town named Porto Petro. The village consist of a charming harbor, restaurants, cafés and tourist homes, all gorgeously enveloped by coves, beaches and the Mondragó Natural Park.

After having dinner at my hotel, I decided to go to Porto Petro.  I grabbed dessert and some delicious sangria while watching the full moon rise.

I hope you babes don’t get bored by my travel pictures! I can’t wait to go on a summer holiday again. Or at least have summer weather again. Now that the Christmas holidays are over, I am looking forward to spring and early sun rises and birds chirping while I’m waking up. Do you already have any summer holiday plans?

Love, Layla

    • How awesome is that!! You’ve definitely picked a beautiful holiday destination! Feel free to ask any tips on which place to visit any time! 🙂 Thank you for stopping by sweetheart! Xx

  • I have been to Mallorca once, but it was in early November. While it was beautiful and much less crowded, the weather wasn’t warm enough to actually enjoy the beaches and crystal clear waters. I probably need to go back during summer time one day.

    • Oh yeah! That’s right, you went in November! Were all the bars and restaurants opened that time of the year? Too bad that the beaches weren’t inviting, they’re so beautiful. Maybe you get to visit it once with you family! 🙂 Xxx

      • No, not everything was open, but it was still enough places to go.

    I am on your blog for the first time, girlie, but super happy I found it 🙂 What a great travel diary post and amazing photos. The place really sounds amazing! I especially loved Cala S’Almonia for its beauty and how it’s private and secluded. My hubby has visited Mallorca a number of times and loved and I sure hope we will be able to explore it together soon.
