Because to speak ofMallorca, is to speak above all of its beaches.Its 550 km. of coastline enable one todiscover a huge variety of scenery. The largetourist-oriented beaches, with the most up-to-date services, are found in places like Playade Palma, SArenal, Palmanova, Magaluf,Santa Ponça or the Bay of Alcúdia. In thesouth or Migjorn we find the long belts ofsand of Sa Ràpita and Es Trenc, a dunelandscape with luminous waters. Where thecontrast between white and bright blue isspectacular indeed. The coast is also animportant incentive for yachting. Themarinas and regattas like the Copa del Reyare proof of just how important this activity ison the island.Those who prefer more family-oriented, Cala Agullaquieter beaches have a long list to choosefrom: from the coves of the west like SantElm to those in the east or the north-east, likethose found in the Artà and Capdepera area.And finally, we have the remote coves, whichyou have to walk to. Authentic scenic jewelsfound above all in the mountainous areas,like the Sierra de Tramuntana, the Formentorpeninsula or the Llevant natural park.In accordance with the new tourism criteria,which include environmental protectionvalues, Mallorca has protected areas. Themost important one is without doubt themaritime-terrestrial national park of theCabrera archipelago, located off the south ofthe island. It is a refuge that has beenpreserved absolutely intact, and can be Cala Llombards12

Other places of naturalinterest are the wetland of Albufera deMallorca, in Muro; the Llevant natural parkin the Artà mountains; the islet of SaDragonera or the coves of the Mondragó area.These protected zones allow one to followextremely interesting routes.The Tramuntana mountain range also hasdifferent hiking circuits. The scenery here isbreathtaking – valleys, rocky precipices,cliffs, high-mountain landscapes that contrastwith the line of the sea as a horizon. Thereare refuges from where one can coverdifferent routes.Another important aspect is the golf courses.Mallorca has 24 facilities for practising thissport which is so closely linked to thescenery, and which has contributed tocreating a different image of the island.Mallorca is also a leading enclave in culturaltourism. This is probably due to its romanticcharacter. Alcanada Golf14
  15. 15. golf The scenery of the north coast, of Valldemossa or Deià, looks like something from a nineteenth-century engraving. Grandiose nature corresponding to the most exalted states of mind. This is where the stories of Chopin, George Sand, the Archduke Ludwig Salvator or Robert Graves are kept alive. Music, painting and literature have always found a source of inspiration in this island. To get to know Mallorca, one must also enjoy its gastronomy. Both in Palma and in any other town, there are restaurants where one can try typical dishes like "ses sopes", "llom amb col" or "frit de matances". Discovering Mallorca therefore offers an extensive range of experiences. The list of possibilities is so long that you can visit the island several times and your trip will be different every time. Never the same. There will always be a new Mallorca to discover. In spite of being well-known by all, in spite of being so famous all over the world, it is a region that holds secrets for anyone who wishes to seek them out. Everyone will find a tailor-made experience. And end up thinking of Mallorca as a large home, a place limited in geography, but infinite in the manner of experiencing it. Son Marroig, Deià 15

Aspecial place where the scenery, the history, Menorca, nature at its purestthe traditions and the lifestyle combine in aunique world. In 1993 UNESCO awarded itthe status of Biosphere Reserve, inrecognition of its natural and cultural values.The nucleus of the reserve is the ParqueNatural de s’Albufera des Grau, in the north-east of the island.Menorcan geography is characterised by aplain configuration, with low elevations.

It is famous for the fiestas ofSant Joan, a festival in which nobody feelsstrange and which lends great character to thetown, when its streets become an apotheosis ofmusic, people, unbridled cordiality andhorses, the latter playing precisely the starringrole, both in the traditional fiestas of all thevillages and in everyday life, making up anintrinsic part of Menorcan life and culture.Strolling around Ciutadella means relivingmany sensations from the past.

With no hindrances in terms of orography, containing dazzling nooks at every turn. Travelling through Menorca, soaking up its colours, the wind, the humidity, the smell of salt, is something of an interior experience. The island has an old peripheral path, the "Camí de Cavalls", enabling one to encircle practically all the coastline, enjoying it in the most authentic way. The gastronomy is yet another of its strong points. The fame of its lobster casserole has spread all over the world. The same as the cheese with Mahón – Menorca Designation of Origin. The sensitivity of its flavours seems to correspond with that of its landscapes. Menorca is like a representation of our inner life. Which is why everyone who visits it recognises something of their own in it. They create a lifelong link with it. Port of Ciutadella 21
