On Island Time
Mallorca Travel Guide
Amid the pristine waters of the Mediterranean lies Mallorca, one of Spain's Balearic Islands. Known for its sheltered coves, limestone hills and ancient Roman remains, the island is rich in history and breathtaking-beauty. We were fortunate enough to have Jonny Seelenmeyer capture wife Lea for our Resort '21 campaign, with this dreamy island of love as the backdrop. Between takes, we found a moment to chat with local muse and #steeleGIRL, Anna-Alexandra.
Read on for her low-down on the island.
The Local's Favourite - Ca Na Toneta
In an old house in Caimari village, Ca Na Toneta is a '0 km' restaurant that sources fresh, organic produce as close to home as possible. They serve up delicious seasonal Mallorcan dishes with ingredients fresh from their own garden and a handful of local farmers.
For a Special Occasion - Restaurant BOTÀNIC in the Can Bordoy Hotel
Located in the Can Bordoy Hotel, BOTÀNIC is a 'plant forward' dining experience with a focus on green cuisine and redefining perceptions of healthy food. While the dishes are incredible, you could visit it for the décor alone with its lush indoor greenery and eclectic feel.
For Your Daily Bread - El Fornet de la Soca
Named after a Spanish bedtime story, this fairytale bakery is known for its dedication to the recovery of authentic, old Mallorcan cooking. A must-try is their blat vestit, rumoured to be the best in Spain.
The Gallery - KEWENIG
Nestled in the heart of Palma's historic centre, occupying a medieval chapel from the 13th century, is KEWENIG. The quaint gallery space showcases works from both local, and international artists.
The White Sand Beach - Ens Trenc
Everyone knows that white sand beaches are few and far between in Europe, which is what makes Ens Trenc in Mallorca oh so special. The expansive stretch of beach looks out onto the glistening blue waters of the Belearic Sea, and is the perfect spot to set up for a day of sunbathing while getting lost in your holiday read.
TO SOAK UP THE VIEW
Viewing Spot - Deià
The best view on the island is arguably from the clifftops of Deià, located in a small coastal village in the Serra de Tramuntana. From the top, it's glittering blue water as far as the eye can see, turn to the land to view all the beautiful old stone buildings that dot the hillside.
