Mallorca is one of the best places to stay if you’re in search of a romantic weekend to get away from it all or even to pop the question. This beautiful Mediterranean island is perfect to explore by rental car, as there are so many hidden coves and inland scenery to discover that can only be found if you hire a car.
Having a rental car on your weekend getaway also means you’ll be able to visit more of this delightful Spanish island.
Where to take a selfie in Mallorca
Take a selfie at Playa de Muro and your friends might think you`re in the Caribbean. With over four miles of white sandy beach, this is one of Mallorca’s hidden gems, and unknown to many tourists. With the calm turquoise sea lapping at your feet, a range of bars and restaurants to choose from and sand dunes backed by pine trees we promise this is the perfect getaway for couples.
Where to kiss in Mallorca
What could be more passionate than a kiss under one of the Moorish arches of the Palace de l’Almudaina, the royal palace in Palma, the island’s capital? Lit up at night, the arches can be seen from the seafront and if you venture inside you’ll see tapestries, paintings and furniture, representing the different historical periods of this Mediterranean island.
Another special part of the palace to sneak a kiss in is next to the fountains in the pretty gardens, where you can sit and relax in the peaceful surroundings.
Where to propose
The village of Valldemossa is an ideal and unforgettable location in which to propose to your loved one. Ask them to marry you here and neither of you will forget the romance of the occasion. You’ll find Valldemossa on the west of the island, in the mountainous area of the Sierra de Tramuntana. The beauty of this quaint little village is that it’s still relatively undiscovered, and hasn´t been spoilt by tourism. You’ll see island life as it used to be years ago as the locals go about their business unfazed by the visitors to their village.
Valldemossa can be easily reached using your rental car, and you won´t believe you’re only 11 miles from Palma once you discover this in-land haven that’s perfect for a marriage proposal.
Don´t miss this
If you love a challenge then you must visit Cala de Sa Calobra and Cala Tuent (‘cala’ is Spanish for cove). Not for the faint-hearted, the 7.5 miles of windy roads are another reason you’ll need a rental car. The road was designed by Italian engineer Antonio Paretti and it’s believed his inspiration came from the twists and turns needed to tie a necktie.
The nail-biting journey through the carved-out rocks is worth every hairpin bend you experience, as the end result is the spectacular bay of Sa Calobara, the Torrent de Pareis (twin streams) and the dramatic Gorg Blau (blue gorge). Finally, Cala Tuent is not to be missed, where the blue-green sea sparkles under the Mediterranean sun in both summer and winter.
