February 20, 2021 | Blog
Hankering for a weekend escape to some Mediterranean sunshine and pampered luxury? Of course you are—and you deserve it! Here at Hoposa, we deliver the ideal getaway on the transfixing Spanish island of Mallorca.
Whatever sort of weekend holiday you’re after, Mallorca has just what the doctor ordered. Here’s a quick run-through of some of your options, experience- and activities-wise—and keep in mind, of course, that you can combine any number of these into one unforgettable Balearic idyll with us!
Beach-hopping on Mallorca
Mallorca lays claim to some of the most beautiful and coveted beaches in the world, and a Hoposa perch puts them right at your fingertips—or, perhaps we should say, at your barefoot toe tips! From the Puerto Pollensa Beach and D’Albercuix along the Bay of Pollenca to Playa de Formentor, Cala Mesquida, Bahia de Alcudia, and so many others, you can fill your weekend getaway with some truly high-quality sand-and-surf time.
Spa & Wellness
Lounge by our Hoposa pools, or enjoy swoon-worthy spas at such properties as our Aparthotel Villaconcha or Hotel Uyal. At SportHotel Villaconcha, meanwhile, you can take advantage of exceptional fitness and training facilities while relishing premium Hoposa hospitality (and that can’t-get-enough Mallorcan sunshine).
Mallorcan cuisine is unique, deep-rooted, and multifaceted: a joy to explore and a delight to the tastebuds. Many of our Hoposa properties offer their own fine eateries, including our Hotel Costa D’Or, Hotel Bahía, and Hotel Pollentia, and all of them position you strategically to visit outstanding Mallorcan restaurants and markets. The island’s winemaking tradition is its own ancient industry, and we highly recommend sampling some of its internationally lauded products during your Hoposa getaway.
Hiking & Cycling on Mallorca
Mallorca offers fantastic year-round outdoor recreation. Biking routes lace the island, from town circuits to coast-hugging roads and challenging mountain switchbacks.
Hikers also get to sample Mallorca’s stunning scenery in all its glory and diversity: Hoof it along coastal trails in, for example, Mondragró Natural Park and Cap de Formentor, trek into the gorgeous highlands of the Montayas d’Artá in the Peninsula de Llevant Natural Park, or revel in the soaring battlements of the Serra de Tramuntana, where you can summit the noble peak of Puig de Massanella or trek up the grand gorges of the Barranc de Biniari or the Torrent de Pareis.
Birders from the world over journey to the Balearic Archipelago to seek out its resident avifauna and its spectacular Mediterranean migrants. Right in Puerto Pollensa, look for waterfowl, waders, and acrobatic ospreys in La Gola Nature Park. Revel in the majestic beauty of greater flamingos at S’Albufera and the fleet elegance of Balearic shearwaters along the Bay of Pollenca, head out to Cap de Formentor or the isle of Dragonera on the trail of the legendary Eleonara’s falcon, or trek up into the wild heights of the Serra de Tramuntana to look for such mighty birds of prey as the booted eagle and the huge, black cinereous vulture.
Family Getaways & Romantic Escapes
On top of all the activities we’ve already spotlighted, a family weekend getaway to Mallorca might include a tour of the island’s many playgrounds and its popular waterparks. Couples, meanwhile, find the perfect romantic getaway in a Hoposa hotel or vacation apartment—strolling sparkling waterfronts, relishing candlelit dinners, and relaxing in private luxury amid some of the finest accommodations on the island.
