Not yet persuaded by the previous 5 reasons to buy a house in Mallorca? Well here you have another 5 to help tip the balance in favour of the greatest of the Balearics.
One need really say no more than pure 100% Mediterranean diet
. Flavour-filled and healthy food you will love, and besides the uniquely Mallorquin dishes, such as arròs brut
, you'll also be able to enjoy Spanish gastronomy: paella, tapas, jamón...
Furthermore, there are plenty of regional products such as olive oil, wine, cheese...
Ensaimada is a typical Mallorcan dessert.
No matter how healthy the food is, if you enjoy laying into it then it will be advisable to do some exercise for the greatest enjoyment of the island's beaches. Well no worries in this regard, as Mallorca is truly a sports paradise.
In the summer you can enjoy water-sports
such as sailing and canoeing, as well as diving and fishing. Throughout the rest of the year you can also do some cycling and hill-walking
If you also enjoy some more intense sensations, you should know that Mallorca is one of the best places in the world to do psycho block
(rock-climbing over the sea), in Autumn you can enjoy the local sport of torrenting
(abseiling in the mountain stream-gorges and river beds) and in the Summer you can take advantage of the wind and do some windsurfing
Tradition and craftsmanship
The rich history of Mallorca means its traditional has countless influences: the Moros y Cristianos
festivities in Sóller and Pollença, catholic celebrations such as Sant Antoni in Sa Pobla and Manacor, fiestas relating to rural life such as Es Vermar
But the traditions of Mallorca are not just to be seen in its events and festivities. Its traditional dance and music (such as the ball de pagès
and its artisanal crafts, siurells
and wicker goods) attest to the tradition that Mallorquins have kept alive down through the centuries.
Fiestas and much more
Along with the beaches and sunshine, partying is definitely among the most appealing aspects of a holiday. Every year, areas such as Magaluf
welcome hundreds of thousands of young and not-so-young people looking forward to having a great time. The fact that they keep coming back, really says something.
Nevertheless, Mallorca is not just for party monsters
: there are many areas and regions where one breathes true peace and quiet. There are spas
and seaside resorts
to allow you to relax and many little villages that will allow you to disconnect from the stress while you enjoy a stroll through their stone-paved streets.
There enough Mallorca to suit everyone
This is the reason you should come to live here: variety. The island is small and everything is near-by, yet the endless range of leisure, culture, tradition, gastronomy, etc
will mean you're sure to find yourself falling in love with it... that part of the island that was made just for you.
