Not everything on holiday in Mallorca has to be about sun, beach and trips out, so ... Let's go shopping!
In Mallorca, there are lots of places to enjoy a day's shopping. In this part of paradise, you can walk along avenues where the best boutiques and famous names such as Louis Vuitton, Philip Plein and Loewe have their shops but you can also find cheaper fashion stores such as Zara, Mango, H&M, Nike etc. However, here at Zafiro Hotels we would recommend that, in addition to browsing through all these well-known brands, you visit the promenades of places such as Port d'Alcudia, stroll through the streets of Palma de Mallorca or visit villages like Valldemossa where you will find lots charming island shops selling many unique items not found in the larger towns.
Shopping centres in Mallorca
In Mallorca, there are several shopping centres where you can shop until you drop, but certainly the best for their variety and atmosphere are Porto Pi, FAN Mallorca Shopping and Festival Park Outlets.
Porto Pi shopping centre
This shopping centre has a very privileged location, the end of the promenade in Palma de Mallorca, overlooking the port where ferries, cruises and boats arrive every day. This shopping centre blends different spaces together really well, which makes it a perfect place to go shopping in Palma. Within its three floors, you won’t just find the internationally well-known shops, at Porto Pi there are many Balearic shops as well; shoe shops, Pieles de Mallorca, Ibiza clothing boutiques and so much more. However, it is not just the shops that make Porto Pi an excellent shopping centre but on the third floor, which is at ground level, is an outdoor terrace, which when the sun is shining is very much appreciated, here you can have a coffee or something to eat admiring the spectacular views over the Bay of Palma. Another great thing about Porto Pi is that going by car is not a problem as it has two floors of car parking.

The best shopping Areas in Mallorca
One of the best options for ideal shopping areas is to visit the promenades of Port d'Alcudia, Santa Ponsa and many other areas, where terraces and shops follow one after another. Here you can find everything from clothing, beachwear and footwear shops to souvenir shops. Another option is to visit towns like Valldemossa where you will find pretty shops that sell clothes in the purest Ibizan style that are not sold in the big chains and are certainly worth a look. You will also find these lovely Mallorcan shops strolling through the centre of Palma de Mallorca, in the streets near the Paseo de Borne and Plaza de España. Of course, here you will be very tempted by the smell of freshly made waffles, ice cream, and freshly baked enchiladas. And our advice is ... they are all worth the temptation! Finally, another perfect area for a day´s shopping is the Paseo de Borne, just 10 minutes` walk from the Plaza de España, this where you will encounter the most luxurious shops and boutiques on the island with shops such as Louis Vuitton, Loewe and multi-brand shops selling Louboutin, Prada and Valentino. If you are visiting Palma de Mallorca, we advocate finding the time to at least take a pleasant stroll along the Paseo de Borne and enjoy a coffee or a cool drink on one of its beautiful terraces. You don´t need to buy anything just enjoy the charm and atmosphere that makes the place worth visiting.
If you love shopping and want to enjoy the island , its atmosphere and its shops then we recommend staying at our hotels in Palmanova, located just a few minutes drive from Palma de Mallorca.
