15 Things to do in Mallorca for Couples (Beyond the Beach!)

Going on a romantic getaway and wondering about the things to do in Mallorca for couples? Caleb and I are here to help you!

While lying on the beach is fun, you don’t need the internet to tell you to do it. You guys are smart and know that island + Mediterranean Sea = time on the beach! And, if you’re anything like Caleb and me, you want to blend the usual “touristy” activities of places you visit with more “hidden gems” so you can experience the true culture of that place!

We spent some time exploring the Balearic island of Mallorca and came up with some really unique activities on our 7 day itinerary that we loved doing together and we’re sharing them all in this post so you can have a romantic vacation together and make the most of your time on the island!

Let’s dive in!

1. Eat Gelato On The Paseo Maritimo

What better way to beat the heat than eating some gelato together? The Paseo Maritimo is the boardwalk that runs around the Palma harbor and it’s a beautiful stroll to take together! Our favorite Gelato shop in the area is The Gelato Boutique Paseo Marítimo, and we have tried a lot of them! Grab a cone or a cup (pistachio is the best) and stroll hand in hand around the Mediterranean Sea! If you want extra romance, you could share your gelato but, pro tip: it’s so good you’ll want it all to yourself!


“Claudio Gelato Con Passion” may have been the best gelato I’ve ever eaten. It’s in the Palma old town and not by the water, but you should try it. The Sicilian pistachio was *chef kiss* AMAZING.

2. Eat your way through Palma

This one is for the foodie couples like us! We were so surprised that Mallorca has a unique food scene from the rest of Spain! They have their own pastries, called ensaïmada, their version of “pizza” and the best spreadable sausage. It might be hard to try it all on your vacation, so hit up this food tour for a fun and delicious way to spend an afternoon together and ensure you eat all the good stuff while in Mallorca. You’ll learn about the food and culture of the island, as well as visit some of the famous spots like the royal palace!

3. Go On A Hot air balloon ride

Ready to feel like you’re on a date from The Bachelor, except with better odds of actually working out as a couple? A romantic sunrise balloon tour is sooo what you need to add to your Mallorca bucket list! What is more romantic than soaring over the stupid blue and crystal-clear Mediterranean Sea with the Serra Traumuntana Mountain range in the background? You also have the option to add breakfast for a couple of bucks and we recommend you do this as breakfast in Palma can be a lot pricier! 

Remember: these are usually group tours so you will be with other people! But, still an incredible thing to do as a couple. If you want a private ride, check this one out! The reviews say it’s a once in a lifetime experience and champagne and chocolate strawberries are included – OH LA LA!

4. Steal a kiss at Sunset

Everyone and their dog is going to tell you to go to Sa Foradada for sunset and we disagree. While we won’t tell you to NOT go to Sa Foradada for sunset, as it IS beautiful, it’s ridiculously popular and crowded and not romantic or enjoyable. It is pretty famous, so check it out but then go to Port D’Andratx OR Es Pontas in Santanyi to watch the sunset.

These are hidden gem locations that we found to be much less crowded and just as beautiful! I mean, kissing in the Mediterranean sunset? It doesn’t get more romantic than that folks, which makes Mallorca one of the best places for a European couples trip!

5. Have a Romantic dinner on the beach

It wouldn’t be a list of things to do as a couple without a romantic dinner on some of the best beaches in Spain! While you may not be able to eat dinner RIGHT on the beach, there are tons of incredible restaurants with sea views such as Restaurant Urbà in Palma which caters to those older than 16 (yay!) and we recommend you try the “surprise” menu if you’re feeling adventurous!

Another option we love is Latitud 39 in Port d’Andratx which would allow you to have a romantic dinner AND steal a kiss at sunset!

6. Spend the day on a Catamaran

Instead of relaxing on the beach together, why not spend some time on the water? We LOVED our Catamaran tour which takes you around some less-visited areas of the island and you can swim in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea! They usually provide beer, wine, cocktails, and small bites and it’s a wonderful way to spend the day as a couple. Especially because you don’t need a car to make this happen – this tour leaves right from Palma!

7. Visit a winery for some wine tasting

Did you know that Mallorca produces some incredible wine? Probably not because a lot of Mallorcan wine is not exported, so you have the chance to try something new! We recommend you book an organized tour as it will allow you to try the wine and get some snacks without having to worry about drinking and driving! Make sure to buy some wine because Spanish wine is a fabulous souvenir from Spain!

Can you imagine sipping vino overlooking orchards and vineyards in the mountains, especially during a beautiful spring month like May? *SWOON*

8. Explore the romantic villages on a road trip

Our favorite part of the island was all the dreamy villages to explore, such as Valdemossa, Fornalutx, and Deia! While you could see these by public transport, it’s much easier and way more enjoyable to do it via a road trip which is why we recommend renting a car in Mallorca.

Peep our guide to driving and renting a car in Mallorca, grab a car rental, turn up our couple’s road trip playlist, answer our road trip questions, and get ready to get lost in the most magical and romantic streets you’ve ever seen in your life. ←Not an exaggeration!

If you are going to go on a road trip, we recommend booking your car in advance as it can get busy. We’ve always had a great experience with Discover Cars!

9. People watch over wine on the Passeig De Born

Don’t lie: you know that people watching while sitting in the cafes in Europe is one of the best things to do. The Passeig de Born is one of the most elegant avenues in Palma and has tons of beautiful terraces to grab a glass of wine and people-watch. Or, visit in December and sip MULLED wine while people watching!

We can’t confirm or deny that making up the backstories of the people you watch makes this experience even better.

10. Share Coca de Trampo on the Soller Train

While these things could be done separately, it’s a heck of a lot more memorable to do it at the same time. We got our Coca de Trampo at Forn Des Port in Soller, just 1 minute away from the train station. This bakery is located in a convenience store (I know, I know. Trust me, it’s so good!) and easy to miss! Grab a slice to share, board the antique train, and eat delicious food while riding through citrus groves. This was a unique thing we did during our stay and we 10/10 recommend, especially because sharing food is one of our top tips for a couples trip!


when you get off in Soller Center, walk 1 minute to Mr. McCoys Island Ices for the BEST locally made sorbet and ice cream ever. I dream about the Mallorcan Saffron ice cream!

11. Go On A Coffee date in Santa Catalina

Santa Catalina is the hottest neighborhood in Palma right now and has tons of amazing restaurants, bars, and cafes. It’s a great spot to start one of your days with a cup of strong espresso! We recommend Mama Carmen which also has some very Instagrammable breakfast options, if that is your thing! Visit Mallorca in the Spring, like March, to enjoy the neighborhood without as many people!

12. Have a Sweet Snack in the Arabian Gardens

The Jardins De Alfabia is a popular tourist attraction and rightly so because it’s GORG and one of the best places to visit by car! However, what generic travel sites don’t tell you is that it has a little cafe inside! It’s the perfect place to grab the freshest squeezed orange juice you’ll ever taste or snack on a sweet little cake while feeling like it’s just you two dining in a jungle. Oh-la-la!

13. Hike The Serra Tramuntana Mountains

For the adventurous couple, Mallorca has incredible hiking, especially if you go in cooler months like visiting Mallorca in February if you don’t mind some rain, or April! There are many small hikes among the mountain villages that could be done as a day trip OR you can do the Grand Route 221! This major hiking route on the island is 100km long and takes 4-8 days. If you decide to do it, you can sleep in guest houses in the villages you pass through!

Fun fact: this mountain range is a UNESCO World Heritage site!

14. Have an “Hora De Vermut” At La Rosa

Next to Plaza Weyler, you will find one of the best vermuterias in Palma by both the local’s and tourists’ standards: La Rosa. This small bar gets busy fast and is incredibly boisterous with amazing energy! The vermouth is old-school and delicious as is the tapas menu. I still dream about the mussels in tomato sauce oh my gosh.

“La Hora de Vermut” is the hour before lunch when Spaniards drink vermouth. So act like a local and have a drink together!

15. Get local ingredients and cook dinner together

In Palma, Mallorca’s Capital City, you will find many markets with amazingly fresh food that you can bring back to your Airbnb and cook a romantic dinner together over a glass bottle of amazing Spanish wine! We recommend Mercat de l’Olivar near Placa Espana for a more local experience. The market in Santa Catalina is great too, but we thought it felt less authentic.

Let’s Wrap This Up: Things to Do in Mallorca for Couples
