Best day trips from Palma to discover Majorca island

The best way to enjoy Mallorca is by renting a car. However, depending on your age or the length of your trip, renting a car is not always cost-effective. That’s why I bring you the best day trips from Palma to discover Majorca island!

Day trips from Palma to discover Majorca

📍 Day trip to Palma and Valldemossa

Valldemossa is one of the most beautiful villages in Majorca. Its narrow cobbled and plant-lined streets, Mallorcan stone houses and beautiful doors make Valldemossa one of the most special places on the island.

This tour will take you to the village of the famous coca de patata (a must try here) and also to the city of Palma. In Palma you will visit its most emblematic places on foot and take a short bus tour through its streets.
