Palma de Mallorca officially wakes up from winter hibernation in April. In this period, the city is not yet crowded with tourists, who generally arrive en masse during the summer season, attracted above all by the beautiful beaches of the island and its own lively nightlife.
If you are among those who have chosen the capital of the Balearics for a spring holiday, you can take advantage of it to dedicate some time to visit a city which, despite being very undervalued from a cultural point of view, actually has a lot to offer on this front too.

The 5 most beautiful beaches
- Cala Tuent: Located on the west coast, it is a surfer's paradise. It is an unspoiled bay with clear waters and a pebble and sandy beach. Behind the beach is the Puig Major, the highest peak in Mallorca.
- Cala Egos: Still a wild bay, not very touristy. Reaching it isn't easy, but it's worth it. Crystal clear sea, rich in fauna, and surrounded by rich vegetation, including olive trees, palm trees and hibiscus.
- Agulla: Natural Area of Special Interest since 1991, it is characterized by fine sand and a pine forest. The water is so transparent that the seabed can be seen with the naked eye for several meters.
- Cala Mondragó: Blue Flag, Natural Park since 1992, a corner of paradise. Here the low cliffs act as a breakwater, but it is mostly a sandy beach. Behind, a luxuriant vegetation between pines and gorse.
- Es Trenc: Among the 10 most beautiful in Europe, it stretches for 3 km with white sand that forms dunes at times that contrast with the turquoise sea and a thousand emerald reflections. A paradise that, among other things, also stands as a bulwark against wild urbanization. It is also the set of many films and commercials.
