Mallorca Travel Diary – exploring this Balearic Island

This year we have chosen to not have one big holiday and instead have a few different shorter holidays throughout the year. This way we get to see more of the world quicker and it keeps the wanderlust under control. I have already had a trip to Dublin and a few months later we were jetting off again to Mallorca. Today I am finally sharing my Mallorca travel diary. 

 

Mallorca Travel Diary day 1

Our first day was an early start as we were at the airport for 7am. We were there in plenty of time so had breakfast and the usual nosey around off duty and the shops. Before we knew it we were on the plane and on our way to Mallorca.

The flight to Palma, Mallorca is just under 3 hours, just enough time to have a drink, food and a bit of a read.

I arranged my own transfers but unfortunately this didn’t work out too well! After picking our suitcases up and finding the company we were waiting over 2 hours for other flights to come in before they would take us. It  was a very scenic wait and the sun was shining which made it much more bearable.

After our long wait in the airport and the transfer from Palma to Alcudia it was late afternoon but the time we got to the hotel. Check in took so long! We arrived at the same time as 2 coaches of Spanish students, which had me cursing the transfer company all over again.

By the time we got to our room there was just enough time to quickly unpack, freshen up and head straight back out for dinner.

The first thing we saw coming back out of our hotel was this stunning view!

After food, a few drinks and a good explore of the hotel resort both me and Ellie were ready for an early night.

Mallorca Travel Diary day 2

Day 2 of our Mallorca travel diary and we were both awake and up early. We were dressed and in the dining room for breakfast as soon as it opened. By 9am we set up on sun loungers ready for a day relaxing in the sun.

The hotel has a really good entertainment programme that you can join in with as much or as little as you want. Even if you’re not joining in the activities there is plenty to watch from the sunlounger. We did a yoga session, being on mats out in the sun by palm trees is just amazing! Joining in an afternoon water aerobics was a good way to cool down and get ourselves moving after a hard day sunbathing.

After dinner we had a long walk exploring Alcudia town and the beach. The beach is just stunning and the views there are amazing!

I could quite happily spend the rest of my life on Alcudia beach looking out to sea.

Mallorca Travel Diary day 3

Day 3 of our Mallorca travel diary saw us at breakfast again at opening time. Another morning yoga lesson under the palm trees was a great start to a day in the sun.

The weather was gorgeous again so we spent the day around the pool and making the most of the All Inclusive food.

We spent the night on resort watching the entertainment and playing pool. We were lucky enough to time going back to the hotel room just right and saw this beautiful sunset from our balcony.

Mallorca Travel Diary day 4

After two days lounging by the pool day four of our Mallorca travel diary saw us wanting to explore more. After another early breakfast we were on the bus to Palma to see the capital city.

I’m not going to talk too much about Palma as there is a whole post coming up about it. But it is probably THE most beautiful, breathtaking city I have seen. We spent the day exploring, sight seeing, eating and shopping. I was honestly heartbroken to get on the bus back to Alcudia.

Coming back wasn’t all bad as we got to see another Mallorcan sunset before bed!

Mallorca Travel Diary day 5

Day five of our Mallorca travel diary is a sad day. Home time *sob*. We had time for breakfast and a last walk around the resort we called home for 5 days before the coach came to pick us up.

Unfortunately our flight home was delayed by 4 hours. Even more unfortunate was that they didn’t realise the delay until everyone was on the plane. This meant we couldn’t get off the plane and because the plane hadn’t taken off the crew are not allowed to serve drinks or food. (How ridiculous is that rule?!) 4 hours on a hot plane without so much as a drink of water was not fun!

After a long day travelling we were back home for about 8pm and our Mallorca adventure was over.

 

Mallorca travel diary round up

Both me and Ellie had an amazing break. Mallorca is such a beautiful country with so much to see and do. We were so lucky with the weather whilst we were there as it is early in the year to go. I definitely want to go back as there is still so much I want to see of Mallorca and it really has stolen my heart.

 

Have you been to Mallorca before? Has a country ever stolen your heart too?

  1. Looks like you had an amazing time there, I’ve never been to Mallorca but would love to jump over there when I finally get around to exploring Spain properly (Previous times were on lads holidays years ago haha)

  2. I have never been to Mallorca before but my foster mum has and she says it was one of the most amazing trips that she has been on. I would love to go myself and it was cool to have an insight into your travel diary x

  3. My husband and I too are doing smaller trips this summer instead of one big one. I’m so glad, because it’s given me lots of things to look forward to. Mallorca looks like it was wonderful, and it was fun to read through your travel diary. It seems like it was a relaxing and fun getaway. Good for you!

  4. I have not been there. Mallorca does look like a dream destination. The beach would be where I would spend most of my vacation days if I were there. Watching sunsets have always been one of my happy moments.

  5. The views, and the pools and the beach look beautiful! I really hate being stuck on a tarmac too! I can’t believe they didn’t serve you any drinks during that time?? When we were last stranded it was only for an hour and they gave us juice and water in that time!

    I’m glad your trip was awesome otherwise though 🙂

  6. I have never been to Mallorca but looks like that you had such a fun trip! Your pictures speak for itself how splendid this destination is!

  7. That’s silly that they wouldn’t even serve you drinks while you were stuck on the plane for 4 hours! I would have really complained. Palma looks wonderful though, especially the swimming pool! I would have spent a lot of my time there!

  8. sometimes it’s nice to split up your vacation to take shorter ones in places closer to home, that way you see more new places and feel like you have more breaks.

  9. It is a great place to visit and I love that it’s so warm there. I am a sucker for all inclusives as I have children and all inclusives always offer a great range of food choices.

  10. Not been to Mallorca as yet but your description of the place definitely puts it on my trip list. Lovely tattoos you got! Beautiful pics..thanks for the insight. 🙂

  11. Glad to know that you had a great time there! The first day would have had me cursing as well, maybe even thing that the transfer is not that professional. The trip is worth it though, from what I can see!

  12. I’m sure you had a great time . Mallorca is a beautiful city , been there few years ago often as I worked on the cruise ship . But didn’t have much time to explore that places . Wish can get there again

  13. Mollarca is a relaxing getaway spot and I haven’t been there in ages. I’m glad you had a good time away. Sorry to read that you had to sit for 4 hours on the tarmac… What a drag!

  14. A few relatives went to Mallorca a few months ago and they loved it! Haven’t seen many pictures from the though but now I know why they love it there <3

  15. Wow! Mallorca sounds amazing! my brother went there last year and told me the same thing -he didn’t want to come back! the pictures are also beautiful! shame about the delayed flight home!
