Touring the Southwest of Mallorca: coves, landscapes and retreats

Known for being the retreat of thousands of German and British tourists, the island of Mallorca is a treasure that sleeps in the Mediterranean Sea’s bounty and where you will find magical places full of indigenous nature and beautiful panoramas that truly deserve to be captured in hundreds of photographs.

Out of all the tourist zones to be found throughout the island, the southwest of Mallorca is the greatest exponent of the type of leisure to which we refer. Since during these winter months the island is still an option for spur of the moment getaways, today we will tell you which areas stand out most in the southern area of ​​the Poniente Mallorcan.

The viewpoint of the Malgrats

Mallorca is an island where there are lots of natural lookouts. Although the best known is the Cap de Formentor, the truth is that in the West of the island you can find true landscape gems such as the viewpoint of the Malgrats Islands. A place unknown even by the locals where watching sunset is much more than an experience.

Unique ports in the world

In addition to beautiful beaches such as Portals Vells or El Mago and ports of great depth such as Port Adriano, the southwest of Mallorca is home to other ports such as Puerto Portals. This port owned by the Kraft family offers the glamour associated with sailing and is a place that rivals the port of Monte Carlo.

Shopping without stress

About 8 kilometers by road from Palma, in the south-west area of ​​Mallorca you can now find a place free of queues and crowds in which all shoppers tastes are catered for: from the luxury boutiques in Puerto Portals to other cheaper brands that are located in the recently opened La Villa shopping center in Magaluf.

Where to stay in Mallorca

For those who have chosen the West of Mallorca to spend a few days of their holidays, there is nothing better than opting for hotels full of services such as those offered by the Sol Hotels. Options such as Sol House are ideal for those traveling with friends or as a couple, and others such as the original Sol Katmandu Park Resort, a hotel which includes a theme park .
