A Week In Mallorca


As you may or may not know, Aaron and I have recently just spent a week away on holiday together in Mallorca. It was our first proper holiday together, and my first holiday without my parents in fact. We had the most amazing week and it was just so nice to be completely on our own and spend some really special quality time together. I love reading and admiring photos in other bloggers' travel posts, so I thought I'd share some snaps from our holiday in case any of you fancied a look.

We stayed in a beautiful part of Mallorca called Cala Vinyes. It's a relatively small area of Mallorca and is right on the coast, about a five-ten minute cab drive away from Magaluf, which was nice as we weren't up for staying right near the Magaluf strip! Where we were located was peaceful and so beautiful, as our hotel looked over a lovely little cove, so the clear blue sea was always in sight and only a 30 second walk away from the hotel. Our hotel was absolutely stunning and there was always something going on in the day to keep us entertained. Aaron joined in on some of the games that the reps ran such as table tennis and water volleyball, however I simply relaxed and watched from my sun bed, haha. The weather when we were out there was gorgeous and so warm, so we spent a lot of time dipping in and out of the pool to cool off. The warm weather also meant that I did end up a bit sun burnt (yes, I did apply sun cream) as my skin is so fair, the warm sun just burns me so easily!

We paid for all inclusive, so we ate in the hotel every morning and afternoon and most evenings. On two of the evenings we treated ourselves to a lovely meal out, both of which were the two best restaurants (rated by TripAdvisor) in Palma Nova. Palma Nova is definitely somewhere we'd love to stay if we ever went back to Mallorca as it was just so lovely and we had the most amazing food there. We went out most evenings in Magaluf and Palma Nova instead of hanging about in the hotel. As well as eating out, we played crazy golf and on two occasions went to the most amazing beach bar in Magaluf called Bondi Beach (who make the best frozen strawberry daiquiri I have ever tasted). The staff in there were all really friendly as well and it was just a really nice atmosphere, so if you're in Magaluf and fancy drinking some tasty cocktails, or even eating some food, I'd definitely recommend Bondi Beach. We also spent an afternoon at Western Water Park in Magaluf which was so much fun. I'm not the most adventurous adrenaline-seeking person, so of course I did opt out on going on some of the larger slides, however the ones I did go on with Aaron were so much fun. 

We flew home on our one year anniversary of being together, at 7:55am in the morning may I add! We were both so tired, however we chilled all day once we got home and watched the first couple of episodes of the new season of Orange Is The New Black (our fave) before going out for a gorgeous meal in the evening to celebrate, which was absolutely lovely. The rain here in the UK is giving me serious post-holiday blues, someone take me back! It was such an amazing, special week and I just want to do it all over again.

Are you going on holiday this summer with your family or your loved one? Have you been to Mallorca before, and if so, what places would you recommend visiting?

    1. With my anxiety I was expecting to feel a bit more homesick and nervous than I actually did. I am so proud of myself for coping so well! And being with my boyfriend who I love definitely helped :) We really did, thank you so much Angelina. Mallorca really is lovely, I hope you get the chance to go one day! xo

  10. Beautiful photos! This post brought up a lot of memories as my family and me went to Mallorca every summer when I was a kid and it was always the highlight of my year. I have never been to Bondi Beach though but I'll make sure to do that if I visit again. I really love Palma actually and apart from that Cala Mesquida has really lovely beaches. xx

  13. I have only ever stayed in Magaluff before, but we took a couple days and explored Palma Nova which was so lovely, it was like crossing a border from the madness of the strip and into this sunny sanctuary. I would really recommend it if you haven't been.

    We visited Tenerife two years in a row as I LOVVVVVVVE it there, so this year we have booked Zante for something a little different. I cannot wait!!!
