My little black book

I’ve been spending a lot of time working recently, and not much time having fun. It’s ‘the season’ so it’s only to be expected, a lot of people are super busy. But it is important to remember to enjoy the island which we live on, and so I turned to my Facebook family and asked them for their top tips for spending some leisure time in Mallorca. Enjoy their ideas (all of the recommendations come from people who live here), you can add your tuppence worth at There’s plenty on the list that I haven’t done yet, and now I can’t wait until the weekend!

You’ve got to agree, there’s some really interesting ideas here, but I think Emma sums it up for us:

Emma Mason Eventually, the simple things in life truly are the best, so for Mallorca it really is the people, the sunshine along with the local hospitality, food, wine and their warm welcome for any nationality. Beach bar in the sunshine is my vote!Bottom of Form
