Bike or scooter rides around Palma
Do you already know Palma? You can’t visit Mallorca without taking a look at its capital city! A great way to see the city is on two wheels, renting a bike or scooter so that you can enjoy the freedom of getting around on your own and getting a different point of view of the city. You can book a scooter or bike from as little as €10 in the activities section of our travel wizard and get everything ready before you arrive to ensure you avoid any unexpected surprises.
On your ride, you can see Palma Cathedral, the only cathedral in the world overlooking the sea. Its 7 rose windows and 83 additional windows provide the Cathedral with extraordinary natural light that penetrates deep into its interior to create the most magnificent and majestic sensations. Continue your journey along the beautiful Paseo Marítimo seafront promenade enjoying the gentle sea breeze and majestic palm trees while admiring all of the awesome luxury yachts in the port.
Excursion to Puerto de Sóller and Valldemossa
This trip will take you to two of the island’s cultural treasures. Puerto de Sóller is a very lively place, ideal for enjoying a quiet snack while admiring the extraordinary beauty of a landscape which combines both the sea and the mountains.
The picturesque village of Valldemossa is also extremely beautiful. Located in the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains, it is considered one of the most beautiful villages in the whole of Spain.
This tour can also be booked in the activities section on our website for around €32 per person, including a multilingual guide to help you better understand the history of these two beautiful locations and ensure you don’t miss a thing during your visit.
Picnic on a boat in the Bay of Alcúdia
The Bay of Alcúdia has so much more to it than you might think as you take a stroll along the stunning beaches. It's a place of magical beauty that will transform into the most romantic setting imaginable as you go sailing with your partner on a traditional Mallorcan boat (‘llaüt’). There are companies available in the port of Alcudia offering excursions at different times of day. Apart from taking you on a beautiful route along the coast they also offer up a delicious picnic on board for you to enjoy, featuring products from the island. What more could you ask for, really?
A night walk in Palma de Mallorca
The city of Palma de Mallorca, capital of the Balearic Islands, is an invitation to fall in love. Its lively, select, and open atmosphere makes it one of the most romantic places in the Mediterranean to enjoy as a couple. The best time to visit is after sunset, when its cheerful nights are lit up and the wonderful terraces can speak for themselves. The perfect plan would be dinner in the celebrated Santa Catalina neighbourhood, then a stroll along the sea to the Cathedral of Mallorca and ending up losing yourselves for a moment among the beautiful alleyways in the old town.
Spa Session for Two
Make the most of your stay and take a day to relax, look after yourselves and enjoy all that time together that you normally don’t have. At our luxury hotels on Mallorca you have exclusive Zen, Spa and Wellness areas at your disposal as our guests, and they are designed to provide you with that bit of extra. Take a look at our 4- and 5-star wellness treatment menu and treat yourselves to an incomparable wellness experience without even leaving the hotel.
A romantic dinner in the heart of Mallorca
A large part of what's unique about Mallorca is hidden in the villages of the interior – small oases of calm filled with the pure essence of the island. Muro is one of those places filled with authentic Mallorcan life, with its tranquil atmosphere and traditional beauty. Located in the centre of town there’s an ideal restaurant to enjoy a romantic dinner and sample the typical dishes of the island together, with a creative touch that will surprise you. The restaurant is called Can Ribera by Meel and is open to the public inside the hotel Can Ribera by Zafiro.
A floating breakfast in the pool, in your suite
Enjoying a delicious, freshly made breakfast as you take a dip in your private pool in your suite is a dream come true... and one of those romantic things you'll never forget. At Zafiro Palace Andratx we know this, and look after you down to the smallest detail: our team will bring breakfast to your room on an exclusive floating tray, leaving it in your private pool so you can savour it as you take a dip or sunbathe, or enjoy the sun on one of the comfortable Balinese beds surrounding the pool.
Sunset in Sa Foradada
One of the best sunsets on the island, and one of the most famous in all of Spain, is found in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains: Sa Foradada. At this spectacular lookout with an amazing view over the Mediterranean, dozens of people gather every evening to admire the sight as the colours of the sun blur across the water and music takes the stage in the bar just behind.
A midnight dip in the Mediterranean sea
If you haven't tried it before, now is the time. Enjoy a sense of freedom and harmony surrounded by our exceptional nature. As if there were nothing there but the two of you together, swimming with your eyes closed. Another advantage of the Mediterranean Sea is that the water holds an ideal temperature both day and night, and it's clean, without algae or other things that might give you a fright. The best option is to find a sandy beach that's easily accessible, for example the beaches near our hotels in Palmanova: with an illuminated promenade set away from the water, fine sand, and crystal-clear, shallow water.
Hot-air balloon ride over Mallorca
Something romantic and really original could be organising a hot-air balloon ride over Mallorca, to let you experience something unique together. If you go to our section Flight & Hotel you can book your stay directly with us, and also any extra activities such as that excursion in a hot-air balloon. The company offering these flights is located in the area around Manacor, very near our hotels in Can Picafort, Playa de Muro and Cala Mesquida, and there are different tours and options available for everyone.
Relaxing in a hidden cove
Mallorca is full of these hidden coves, waiting to be discovered and turned into small islands of bliss where you can enjoy the sea far from the crowds. Most of these untouched coves can only be reached hiking, or by boat. One such option is Cala Carbó, located at the very southern part of the island and a stunning spot that will surprise you with its crystal waters. Other coves on Mallorca offering incredible beauty are those located left of Cala Torta and Cala Mitjana, very near our hotel Zafiro Cala Mesquida. They are coves with rocks and sand, completely untouched and far from civilisation.
Dancing in the sunset near the beach
The area Puerto de Alcudia and Playa de Muro, near our hotel Zafiro Bahía, is known as the stretch where some of the most exclusive beach clubs on Mallorca are located. In these places you can always raise the most select cocktails in a toast to the best atmosphere on the island. Some of them do live music sessions or have DJs throughout the summer and offer facilities on the beach where you can dance to the rhythm of the waves, with your feet in the sand, at sunset.
