Day 1 - UK to Palma
Fly to Palma, where we'll transfer you to your adults-only hotel in Porto Cristo. This lovely fishing village on the east coast of the island is the perfect place in which to relax. A sandy beach curves gently around the bay and there’s a good selection of cafés and restaurants where you can sit and watch the world go by. Your hotel is situated right on the seafront, so once you’ve settled in, why not head out for a stroll.
This evening we'll get to know one another better over a welcome drink before dinner.
Day 2 - Soller and the west coast
Today we travel by coach to Port de Soller via the West Coast, which boasts stunning coastal scenery and beautiful villages. There’s free time for lunch at Port de Soller before we take the tram to Soller. After a short visit here, we then take the vintage narrow-gauge railway train to Son Reus before travelling back to our hotel by coach.
Day 3 - Porto Cristo
Spend a day at leisure in Porto Cristo. Lapped by gentle waters, the resort's lovely beach is the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun.
Day 4 - La Granja and Binnissalem
You're free to explore at your own pace today or maybe you'll join our optional excursion to La Granja and Binissalem. We'll begin by visiting La Granja, a country house which dates mostly from the 17th century. We'll enjoy a tour and learn about rural Mallorcan traditions, before continuing on to Binissalem. This traditional town is at the centre of Mallorca's winemaking industry and a number of high-quality varieties are produced in the region, including Manto Negro reds and Moll – or Prensal Blanc – whites. We'll visit a nearby bodega to find out more and enjoy a tasting.
Day 5 - Porto Criso
Today has been left free for you to relax in Porto Cristo. Perhaps take a dip in the hotel's swimming pool.
Day 6 - Alcudia, Puerto Pollensa and Formentor
After breakfast, we'll set off on an included excursion. Our first stop is Mallorca's oldest city, Alcudia, where there will be free time for shopping in the street market. We then continue to Pollensa, an old Mallorcan town nestled between two hills in the north of the island. We'll discover its highlights on a guided walking tour and then head to Cala Sant Vicenc, a resort boasting one of the best beaches on the island. There will be time for a coffee in one of the enticing cafés here before we arrive in Formentor, one of the most beautiful places on the island. Its white-sand beach is washed by sparkling turquoise waters and set against a backdrop of pine forest. We continue by coach to Puerto Pollensa, but if you prefer you can make your own way there by ferry. There'll be plenty of time to explore with your fellow travellers before we return to the hotel.
Day 7 - Valldemossa
Enjoy another day at leisure or join your Tour Manager on an optional excursion to Valldemossa. Described as one of the prettiest villages on the island, its most famous landmark is the Carthusian monastery, where composer Frederic Chopin and writer George Sand spent the winter of 1838-39. We'll visit the monastery's cells and see the ancient pharmacy. Afterwards there will be time to explore Valldemossa's narrow streets and alleyways. We'll return to our hotel this afternoon. This evening we'll gather for a farewell drink and dinner in the hotel's restaurant.
Day 8 - Palma to UK
After breakfast we'll transfer to the airport for our flight back to the UK.
