Castle
“The Castillo de Bellver is set in a small wood/forest/park just outside of Palma. If you visit on a Sunday it is free to enter. It has a wonderful museum inside the castle that tells you the history of Mallorca. If you climb up to the top of the castle you get wonderful views across the bay of Palma. If you have taken the tram into Palma from Soller you can get a bus to the castle or near the castle and then hike up. If you have driven to the castle there is usually free parking spots available. ”

Zoo

Natural Feature
“If Cala d’Or’s beaches get too crowded, take the morning bus to Es Trenc. This beautiful beach of clear blue water and golden sand, backed by pine trees and dunes, stretches for almost 5km along the wild south-eastern shore. There is a small bar-restaurant here and you can hire sun umbrellas, but there are few other facilities and the beach rarely gets packed with bodies. Be warned though, Es Trenc is popular with nudists and the bodies that you do see are likely to be bare.”
