Plan Day Trips To Valldemossa, Sóller, Sa Dragonera, and Beyond


October 7, 2019 | Blog Things to Do

With a home base—an exceptionally luxurious home base—at a Hoposa hotel or vacation apartment in Puerto Pollensa, Cala San Vicente, or Deià, you have Mallorca’s varied natural, cultural, and historical landscapes at your fingertips. The possibilities for sightseeing day trips are just about endless, but here are four destinations that should get you started—and eager to see more!

Cap de Formentor

One of the magnificent land- and seascapes of Mallorca—and easily accessed from Puerto Pollensa—Cap de Formentor forms the island’s northeasternmost extremity. This is a rugged spine of land defined by stony heights, slanted ledges, Mediterranean headlands, and stunning pine-backed beaches. It’s also home to the loftiest lighthouse on Mallorca: a 72-foot-tall tower built in 1863 on a perch nearly 700 feet high.

Valldemossa

This mountain hamlet in the Serra de Tramuntana comes drenched in scenic beauty and history. “Valdemossa” stems from the old Arabic label for the site: Musa Valley. The town’s well known for its historic monastery, for being the birthplace of Mallorca’s patron saint (Santa Catalina Thomas), and for accommodating the great composer Frederic Chopin and his lover, the French writer George Sand (Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin), in the winter of 1838.

Sóller & Port de Sóller

The small city of Sóller occupies a beautiful valley backed by Tramuntana peaks, its centerpiece being the Placa Constitució. A tram connects Sóller to Port de Sóller on Mallorca’s northwestern coast: one of the island’s loveliest harbors.

Sa Dragonera

The unpeopled island of Sa Dragonera lies off the western coast of Mallorca and comes entirely protected as a natural park. Its jagged, mountainous profile—an offshore continuation of the ruggedness of the Serra de Tramuntana—resembles a dragon’s crest. Take a tour to Sa Dragonera, and you can enjoy stunning Mediterranean views, historic watchtowers and lighthouses, and perhaps a glimpse or two of the native Lilford’s wall lizard, found nowhere else but the Balearic archipelago.

Enjoy Mallorca Day Trips With a Home Base at a Hoposa Hotel or Vacation Apartment

We have, of course, merely scratched the surface when it comes to day-trip possibilities as a Hoposa guest: After all, there’s beach-hopping to be done, waterparks to enjoy, native birds to track down, wineries to linger at, hiking trails to tackle, and so much more.

You couldn’t ask for better-situated or more luxurious launch pads for exploring Mallorca’s gorgeous countryside and legendary Mediterranean coastline than a Hoposa hotel or vacation apartment. Soak in our unrivaled luxury hospitality in between day-tripping forays through mountain valleys, idyllic orchards, and beach-lined strands, digging into Mallorcan cuisine, history, and scenery all along the way!
