How We Spent A Romantic Week in Mallorca: 7-Day Couples Itinerary

Mallorca is incredibly beautiful and romantic with soft beaches, turquoise blue water, and charming towns – we fell in love with it and think it’s the perfect vacation spot for couples! We visited Mallorca, checked out all the top spots, and even traveled by two different modes of transportation so that we could give you all the insider tips on how to have the most epic and memorable vacation as a couple!

In this 7-day Mallorca itinerary, we’ll share the perfect blend of adventure, exploration, and relaxing beach time for a romantic getaway that you guys will love just as much as we did!

How To Get Around

We 100% believe that renting a car and driving around Mallorca is the best way to explore! It’s relatively easy (with some nerve-wracking roads like the Ma10, to be totally honest!) but a car will allow you to see A LOT more as you save time and don’t need to rely on bus schedules.

We do recommend renting a VERY SMALL car, though: roads are narrow, and parking spaces are tight. (When you can find them!)

We really live booking rental cars with Discover Cars, as it shows you all the various vendor options in one place making it easier and saving you time!

Day 1 – Arrival and Palma

Once you get into Palma from the airport drop your bags and hit the local beach, Playa de Palma for a few hours or spend some time wandering the streets and dodging tourists!


DO NOT get your car at the airport when you land. You won’t need it for the first 2 days, so save money both on the rental and parking. Organize your car pick up or day 3 at one of the car rental spots right in the city.

Wander down the Passeig de Born which has tons of luxury designers if you’re looking to get some epic shopping in or buy some Spanish souvenirs . We recommend you check out the little tapas and wine bar called “WINEING.” They have a really cool self-service wine vending machine. Yea, you read that right.

If you’re feeling hungry, you MUST stop at “Claudio Gelato Con Passion,” this TINY little gelato stand where I had the best pistachio gelato of my life.

For dinner, head to the trendy neighborhood of Santa Catalina. We recommend having dinner at FABRICK Food and more for amazing, creative tapas! Make a reservation because it gets super popular! Then hole up in a cute bar in the area for the night.

Where to stay: 

You’ll want to stay in Palma for the first two nights for sure.

For a mid-budget accommodation (our go-to) we suggest this Airbnb as it’s centrally located in the center of Palma, walkable to basically all the sites, and is a traditional, Mallorcan-style apartment with a beautiful balcony! We LOVED it.

Luxury/Romance: want to treat yourself? We recommend the Puro Grand Hotel! The place oozes romance and class with its Arabic-inspired design and a charming courtyard where you can grab something to eat or drink. The location is central and amazing too!

Day 2 – Palma Historical Sites and Catamaran Tour or Food Tour

First, you’re going to need some coffee! Arabay Coffee was our go-to every day we were in Palma and has some good baked treats to grab and gp.

From here, you’re either going to go on a Catamaran tour in the morning, followed by exploring Palma OR you’re going to explore Palma and then go on a food tour!

We are not really a “relax by the water couple” but we thoroughly enjoyed this Catamaran tour! You get time to relax on the boat together, drink wine, eat tapas, and then float in the middle of the crystal clear water of the Mediterranean Sea. HELLO BUCKET LIST!

A food tour is a great way to eat ALL the local food in smaller bites so you don’t get too full. You’ll also end up seeing a lot of historical sites too.

There are a few things to see on your itinerary:

  • Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma – the Gothic Roman Catholic Cathedral in the center of the old town and took three centuries to build!


Unless you REALLY like history, skip the audio guide as it kind of just rambles on. It’s pretty enough to just take it in with your eyeballs.

  • Royal Palace of La Almudaina – This is where the Spanish king and queen stay when they visit Mallorca.

  • Castell De Bellver – This beautiful castle is on the outskirts of Palma, so you will want to use transport to get there and get to the top as it’s quite a hill!


DO NOT USE PUBLIC BUS TO GET HERE. It will park at the bottom of a MASSIVE hill that you have to walk up. The castle is a stop on the Hop On, Hop Off Sightseeing Bus! So, ride that bus from any of the bus stops and it’ll take you right to the front door. You’re welcome.

Get tickets for the bus here!

For the evening, we LOVED La Rosa Vermuteria! They have incredible tapas and amazing vermouth. Or, if you want traditional food, try Celler Pages – I had the fish of the day and the classic “Tumbet” which is like Mallorcan ratatouille. 

Day 3 – Soller and Fornalutx

Your road trip has to start with breakfast and we recommend Panadería S’ Estació. This small bakery has ensaïmada so fluffy and light that we could weep. They have tons of different flavors and they even have a small section of glass floor where you can see the bakers making them! They make other various traditional Mallorcan foods as well!

Grab an ensaïmada to go and then go get your rental car – make sure to check out our driving and rental car guide for Mallorca so you know what to expect!


When we were planning our trip, so many articles said to do Deia, Valldemossa, and Soller all on day one so that is what we did and we hated it. It was WAY TOO rushed to really enjoy the day. So, we’re splitting them up over two days so you can actually enjoy these dreamy and romantic villages.

We recommend starting in Port Soller, a charming fishing village with a large bay with beautiful water. You can spend some time walking along the boardwalk and exploring the little shops. 

Once you’re done strolling, head over to the antique train stations where you can take a ride on the antique train up to the main city of Soller (it’s a 45-minute walk otherwise!) Many tourists take the antique train all the way from Palma to Soller but, honestly, we found this TOO touristy and way overpriced.

Take the 20-minute journey up to the main part of the city and you still get to drive through beautiful and romantic citrus groves and experience one of the best things to do in Mallorca for couples!

If you’re hungry, find the tiny bakery called Forn Des Port inside a convenience store 1 minute away from the train station. Try the traditional Coca De Trampo here. It’s sort of like pizza with no cheese and it’s a perfect thing to split and eat on the train.

Once you arrive in the city, take a 2-minute walk over to Mister McCoys Island ices for the most INCREDIBLE, hand-made gelato, ice cream, and sorbet with local and seasonal ingredients.

If you want to hike/see another village, you can take a 45-minute hike through orange groves to the village of Fornalutx, called the “prettiest village in Spain” and spend some time there.

Head back to Soller for the evening and eat dinner at the romantic Restaurante Luna 36 or Restaurant Ca’n Boqueta . Don’t eat at the main city square – it’s all not-so-good tourist restaurants!

Where to stay: 

You’ll want to stay in Soller tonight.

For a mid-budget accommodation (our go-to) we suggest Bikini Island and Mountain Port Soller. It’s adults-only so it’s great for couples, includes breakfast, and has a beautiful view and free bikes!

Luxury/Romance: want to treat yourself? We recommend the Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel and Spa! We’re talking beautiful views, poolside bars, 3 restaurants, and an infinity pool baby!

Day 4 – Deía, Valldemossa, Arabian Gardens

First, you’re going to head over to the Jardines De Alfabia which are some beautiful Arabian gardens. You only need an hour or so to explore the gardens and entry is under $10. These gardens are incredibly beautiful and romantic and usually less visited by tourists.

Hop back in the car and stop at the beautiful village of Valldemossa! This small mountain town has stone houses, cute shops, and many restaurants. You can spend hours wandering the charming streets! Make sure to stop into the famous Pastelería Ca’n Molinas to try the famous Coca de patata (super fluffy potato bread, kinda like brioche!) for a light lunch.

Next, jump into the car again and drive to Deia, our favorite mountain town! Parking is hard here, and you may have to drive around a little bit!

This romantic village sits on a hilltop and is just so magical and beautiful! It feels quieter than the slightly more-touristic Valldemossa and you can wander hand in hand along the beautiful streets for hours. Deiá has been popular among famous artists and writers so there are also many art galleries and shops to explore. There is also a restaurant called El Olivio that has one of the most beautiful settings we have ever seen.

From here, jump in your car and drive 5 minutes to Sa Foradada for Sunset. 

This suggestion comes with a caveat: while this viewpoint for sunset is GORGEOUS and can be SO romantic, it is also one of the most crowded places we’ve ever been in our lives, as seen below.

It’s worth checking out IF you can get there at least one hour before sunset. There is a restaurant called Chill Out Sa Foradada where you can sit and get food/wine to watch the sunset.  

After that, jump back in your car and head back to Valldemossa for the night and a late dinner at either QuitaPenas Valldemossa for a variety of traditional toast with toppings or Sa Cova for beautiful views and delish tapas!

Where to stay: 

You’ll want to stay near Valldemossa tonight.

For a mid-budget accommodation (our go-to) we suggest Agroturisumo Son Viscos. This beautiful finca (working farm) is so lush and peaceful with beautiful rooms and a delish breakfast served on a terrace.

Luxury/Romance: want to treat yourself? We recommend the SA VOLTA DE C’AN OLIVER! This is in Deia but We’re talking about a beautiful and romantic villa, walkable to Deia with spectacular views!

Day 5 – Banyalbufar, Beach Time, Hiking or Paella

For the adventurous couple, we recommend hiking the Archduke’s Trail (Camí de s’Arxiduc) near Valldemossa. It’s moderately hard and takes about 4-5 hours to hike, depending on how fast you go. You can hike the trail as a loop or from Valldemossa to Deia.

The easiest way to do this trail is to go through the Muntanya del Voltor Natural area, where you need to get a free permit as it goes through private residences. Request that HERE and we recommend 4-6 days in advance!


Download the All Trails App map for the routine in advance as you won’t get cell service and you don’t want to get lost!

A small town built into the mountainside in Mallorca

If you don’t want to hike for the morning, jump in the car and drive 30 minutes to the adorable mountain village of Banyalbufar! It’s another charming little town of only 500 people on the West Coast that is built more into the hill than others. This gives you incredible views of the mountain range and the Mediterranean Sea. It has ancient terraced hillsides down into the sea which are gorgeous!

While Caleb and I didn’t go to the beach here, we were told by locals that it has the BEST snorkeling, and sometimes baby octopus even crawl up your body and try to play with you!

Season permitting, we highly recommend this Paella Making class for the afternoon. Patri, a local to Banyalbufar takes you to her dad’s house, a traditional one-room house with beautiful views and many adorable animals! You’ll make the BEST seafood paella of your life with free-flowing wine!

Once you’re done you can head back to Valldemossa for the night and eat at the other restaurant that we recommended if you’re still hungry after all that Paella!


Get up early and jump in the car and head to Cala d’Or, about 1 hour and 15 minute drive away. This small beachy town is known for its turquoise water and sandy coves.

A great place to stop for a beautiful brunch is Restaurante Bistro Noir and then head to one of the beaches in the area for a couple of hours such as Cala Gran, Cala Esmeralda, or Cala Ferrera. They are all walkable from each other!

After you’ve had some relaxation, drive 30 minutes to Calo Des Moro, which is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Mallorca. This beach is in a narrow bay, making the water insanely blue. It does get super busy as it’s small and touristy, so head up for that!

The easiest way to get to Caló des Moro is to take the staircase from Carrer des Caló des Moro street down to Cala S’Almunia, then continue the walk to Caló des Moro. 

Once you’re done sunbathing, it’s time to watch the sunset at Es Pontas, one of our favorite places to visit by car.

This is THE best, most romantic place in Mallorca to watch the sunset. Es Pontás is a natural rock formation in the water that has the middle cut out.

To get to the mirador, you have to park in VERY small parking down then walk where it says “residents only” (don’t worry, you’re fine!) The walk down is very steep and rocky so don’t be dumb and wear sandals like I did because I have scars to prove it. It’s a very popular sunset spot so try to get there early!

Once the sun has set you can stay the night in Santanyi, which we recommend if you are not leaving Mallorca tomorrow and want a romantic evening, close to the best beaches. Or you could head back into Palma to be closer to the airport!

If you stay in Santanyi, grab dinner at Restaurant Amazoniqüe a gorgeous restaurant with Brazillian and Mediterranean fusion cuisine!


We found that many restaurants would not serve us dinner much before sunset, just alcohol! So, try to get dinner after sunset so you avoid this!

 Where to stay: 

You’ll want to stay in Santanyi tonight.

For a mid-budget accommodation (our go-to) we suggest Can Ferrereta. This beautiful property has a garden, private parking, a terrace, and a restaurant with a central location to many beaches!

Luxury/Romance: want to treat yourself? We recommend the Cal Reiet Holistic Retreat! We’re talking about a healthy breakfast buffet, yoga classes, and a location close to great beaches!

Day 7 – Wild Card Day

This day is a bit of a wild card depending on if you’re leaving Mallorca today (and what time!) or if your week in Mallorca ends tomorrow. This means you have a few options for things to do today:

Option 1: If you stayed in Palma last night and are leaving today, your best bet is to stick around Palma and see anything you missed the first few days. You don’t want to miss your flight!

Option 2: If you stayed in Santanyi today and are either leaving Palma in the evening or tomorrow you could head over to Es Trenc Beach on your way back to Palma. Es Trenc is one of the most famous beaches on the island for its Caribbean blue water and bright, white sand! While I was not able to visit, I have heard it is amazing! Another option is Cala Llombards, another beautiful beach with excellent snorkeling!

If you don’t want another beach, the Mondrago Natural Park, a large coastal reserve with wetlands, birds, pine trees, and beautiful beaches is only 15 minutes away.

If you have the evening, consider driving to Port d’Andratx for a romantic sunset and then heading back to Palma for the night.

That’s a wrap on your 7 day itinerary! We know you are going to love the stunning, romantic island of Mallorca as much as we did! If you have any questions, just leave a comment and let us know!!
