It’s not hard to make travel snaps in north Mallorca look stunning. With lush mountains, glittering sea and quaint architecture, the region’s beauty speaks for itself. Give your Instagram followers a true Mallorcan experience with a carefully designed tour around the north’s most picturesque offerings. Be warned: the scent of orange groves, the chirp of Balearic warbler birds and the warmth of the golden sun can only be enjoyed in person.
Bon dia, Mallorca! Start your day with a scenic breakfast at La Residencia, A Belmond Hotel, Deià, overlooking the dramatic Tramuntana Mountain views. Seasonal fruits from our orchard, Iberian ham and organic eggs are just some of the options on the menu. The charming village of Deià is the perfect starting point for your photographic adventure.
Journey on to pretty Fornalutx, where apricot-coloured stone walls and flower-lined streets await. The village favours a quiet, rustic pace of life. Boasting winding streets with green painted shutters, it makes for a perfect stroll and many picture opportunities. It’s no surprise that Fornalutx is known as one of the most beautiful places in Mallorca.
Head to Sollér, where a 108-year-old vintage tram provides the perfect picture opportunity. It’s also the best way to get to the port. From the baroque beauty of the Sant Bartomeu church to the botanical gardens, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Breathe in the smell of citrus blossoms that fills the main square. The area often bustles with local markets.
After a peaceful yet enriching morning, it’s time for a spot of lunch. Port de Sollér offers many delicious options, but why not go traditional? Try porcella, suckling pig, caldereta de langosta, lobster stew, or tumbet, a layered vegetable tapa.
Though a siesta may be calling, we recommend walking around the port to work off the hearty lunch. Allow yourself to be guided along by the fishermen’s boats, which bob gently by the harbour. The harbourside location makes a beautiful photo backdrop.
You might think you’ve seen it all, but there are plenty more pebbles on the beach. Hop on a charming boat for a two-hour tour crossing Mediterranean waters to reach Cala Deià. Sheltered by fragrant pine forests, the enviably blue sea glitters under a camera lens.
There’s wonder everywhere you look at this stunning beach: quaint lighthouses, azure skies, dramatic cliffs. Enjoy a relaxed afternoon of sunbathing, swimming and searching for the perfect photograph before returning back to La Residencia.
After a busy day, wind down in front of a beautiful sunset that dips slowly into the inky horizon. Cleanse your palate with a cocktail on our lawn before an unforgettable meal at El Olivo. Majorcan red snapper with candied parsnips, baked saddle of local mountain lamb, Sóller prawns drizzled in our homemade olive oil: what will your plate look like?
