There is nothing like a holiday to reconnect as a couple. This is the perfect way to leave the real world behind and prepare yourself for some serious pampering and indulgence.
Marjorca (or Mallorca) provides the ideal setting for a romantic break, being surrounded by the captivating Mediterranean Sea, with warm weather on one of the most picturesque islands in Europe.
Pixie Geldof recently married in a monastery in Deia, cementing it as the go to romantic getaway for the jet set crowd. Majorca has also seen some coverage as the home to ITV’s Love Island, with the island’s air of romance clearly working its magic with the contestants.
You can jet out there from most major UK airports easily enough too, so a last minute trip to your sanctuary off the coast of Spain is always an option.
But once there, what activities can you organise with your partner? Have a read on and see how Majorca holidays are just the thing you need to take time out as a couple.
Enjoy a horse drawn carriage through the city
Climb on board and settle into one of the old leather seats of an evening, and enjoy the sights of Palma side by side. This may well be an extremely “touristy” thing to do – but only for the reason that it is absolutely brilliant way of seeing the city, and enjoying the romance of this part of Europe.
Walk hand in hand down the cobbled lanes
Palma – and other parts of the island – is a great place to explore. Tiny path ways, winding lanes and cobbled avenues lace the old town and lead you through leafy gardens, past ancient basilicas and some eclectic architecture. Half way through, treat yourself to a few glasses of cold rose and some tapas and soak up the sedate atmosphere.
Hop aboard the vintage train to Soller
Train journeys are the most romantic forms of transport, and this wooden train is no exception. The route goes through a chain of tunnels, cuts through the Tramuntana mountains to show off miles of olive groves, pine forests and citrus orchards on either side. Soller itself is a picturesque town of art deco buildings and home to a gorgeous harbour, beach and ice cream stands.
A trip to a vineyard
Majorca is an island of great vineyards, so it would be rude to not visit one or two. We recommend heading to Binissalem, in the northeast of Palma, where you can enjoy wines made from manto negro, callet and moll grapes.
There are a number of tours you can go on to sample the local wine and enjoy a spot of tapas, but ring ahead and get yourself booked in before you arrive.
A romantic cycle
Majorca is home to amazing cycle tours, run by wonderful guides. Enjoy cycling through fields of pomegranates and oranges, while the scent of acres of lavender plants fragrances your journey. Picnics can be taken, and stops at wineries are encouraged, making it the perfect day for sightseeing, food and drink.
