The dramatic coastal landscapes of Mallorca’s western region offer abundant opportunities for stunning photographs as displayed here.
There are many reasons why Mallorca tops Europe’s summer holiday charts, but one ranks above all others: the island’s beautiful coast. Beyond the built-up resorts, coves braid the island like a string of pearls – each one a reminder of why the island’s beaches have never lost their appeal. Go west for cliff-sculpted drama and sapphire seas, or head north for hikes to pine-flecked bays and breezes that carry kite-surfers, windsurfers and sailors across turquoise waters. Scope out deserted coves in the east, or dive off bone-white beaches in the south. With a room overlooking the bright-blue sea, sundown beach strolls to the backbeat of cicadas and seafood at restaurants open to the stars, you’ll soon click into the laid-back groove of coastal living.
