Mallorca Tourist Attractions and Sightseeing

(Mallorca / Majorca, Balearic Islands, Spain)

Mallorca Tourist AttractionsMallorca has long been a leading summer holiday destination and its plentiful attractions cater well to the requirements of tourists visiting this large Mediterranean island, with many being conveniently close to the main beaches and resorts. As the capital, Palma de Mallorca is where a large proportion of the island's tourist attractions are based, particularly around its historical centre, the Placa d'Espanya, the Placa Major and lively harbour.

Spread all over the island are a series of often spacious caves, which provide something quite different to explore, away from the beaches. Families with young children holidaying on Mallorca will find that the most appealing tourist attractions come in the form of Aquacity and its numerous water slides, and the Marineland theme park, where friendly dolphins and sea lions await.

The caves feature impressive underground lakes, enormous stalactites and stalagmites, and simply vast, cavernous spaces. There are over 200 caves in total, with many providing shelter for early settlers, although only a small amount of the island's caves are actually open to the public. Guided tours are available and the caves often feature steps and walkways. Caves with lakes offer wonderful acoustics and sometimes short concerts are held in these caves.
