Sunny and Sandy
Mallorca is so lovely. I've just got back from a week there and I feel so refreshed. The beaches were beautiful and it was sunny from the moment I got up, right up to the end of the day. Plenty to do if you don't want to just sunbathe, including some rather fun bars.

Holidays in Mallorca
I just want to write about the good, the bad and the strange I saw in Mallorca.
- Very good roads and the signs really help.
- Competitive prices to rent a car and have real fun knowing the island. It is really worth it.
- Competitive prices for hotels and tickets if you go with group / agency.
- You can have everything you desire from food to shopping.
- All the public places are well organized, with beautiful gardens and perfect landscaping and street / town plan.
- Very beautiful, especially the villages away from the beaches, which have traditional architecture and atmosphere.
- All the castles, old huge houses / villas, are very well renovated, clean and with some leaflets.
- Excellent wine and sausages!
The bad and strange to me:
- The Mallorcans speak only Spanish. They also seemed to us a bit tired when seeing yet another tourist. The same applied to the waiters in the hotels. It was a bit difficult to communicate.
- The huge hotels built next to the island's beaches do not fit in with the landscape, they change it completely, and as a result the beaches lose their Mediterranean colour. It is a pity they allow big constructions so close to the beaches and so improper with the nature.
- All the beaches are full of people. Mallorca has about 10 million tourists each year and so if you wish to find a beach with fewer than 100 people is very difficult, particularly during the high season. Alternatively, you could hire a boat.
- On the whole the beaches had blurry blue and not crystal clear blue waters. Of course this might be because of the crowded beaches.
- The public tourist information kiosk at Palma does not really help.
- Bottled water is at least bad. It is very difficult to find anything other than Spanish water, e.g. Perrier.
- The shops close around 13:00 to 17:00 every day, and Sunday all day. So arrange your shopping.
- You must know how much gas your car will need and how to fill it as in most gas stations you pay first and you fill up after. Now as to how you speak with the cashiers who do not speak English or other language is your problem.
- In the middle of the mountain on the way to St. lliuc monastery the one and only gas station coffee shop warns you in the toilets that if you are not customer and want to use it you have to pay 0.50 euro. I was a customer, but the flush was not working.
- Some friends ordered bottled water and when they asked for ice cubes, because it was warm, they were asked to pay one more euro for the cubes.
- I paid 3,9 euro at 'Mosquito' café in Palma for 330 gr water which was not very cold.
