Majorca, located in the Balearic Islands, is known for its beautiful sandy beaches, stunning architecture, rich pine forest, and fantastic restaurants.
Sounds like paradise, right? After visiting this past summer solo AF, I can say for sure it is!
Most of us won’t get unlimited time here in Majorca, so I created this itinerary for the perfect 4 nights in Majorca!
For geographical reference, Ibiza, known to most as “the party island” is 2 hours away by ferry. You might be wondering what makes Majorca so special.
Why should I choose the Balearic Islands over any other island? Well, if you are someone who likes to mix old town exploring with turquoise blue waters and white sand, then Majorca is the place for you!
This island is also very safe, perfect for any solo traveling female. It is also a popular holiday destination for a girls’ trip.
Rarely do I say that I want to go back to a place, but Majorca is the exception! There are so many fun things to do and explore here; I see myself coming back year after year.

Should I Rent a Car in Majorca?
To see some pretty cool spots outside of Palma in Majorca, you will need to rent a car! I have lots of tips for driving in Majorca and renting a car.
My best advice is to plan your trip according. There is a lot to do in just Palma, but if you want to explore some of the best beaches you should rent a car.

Is It Safe To Visit Majorca Solo?
I had no issues with safety when I was visiting Majorca. It is always a good idea to do a little bit of research on the subject.
Majorca has an excellent reputation for being a safe destination and there are many ways to make sure you have a safe trip.
Solo travelers should avoid walking alone in secluded areas at night, be aware of pickpockets in crowded places, and take basic safety precautions such as not carrying large amounts of money.
In general, it is always best to exercise common sense when you are traveling alone. Use your intuition and be aware of your surroundings, as you would for any other destination.
Familiarize yourself with the local laws, customs, and culture to help ensure a safe and enjoyable trip.

Best Time To Visit Majorca
The best time to visit Majorca depends on what you are most interested in doing.
The best weather for the beach is from May through October. But there are also a lot of things you can do in Mallorca in winter.
If you visit between June, July, and August, you should prepare yourself for the crowds and the inflated prices. I tend to avoid traveling in peak season if possible.
How to Spend Four Nights in Majorca
Let me start this Mallorca itinerary by giving you a few ideas on where to stay solo. When I travel alone, I always stay in the most central hotel I can afford.
When traveling alone, it’s important not to feel isolated, so you don’t get lonely.
For me the best area to stay in Majorca was in the capital Palma. I just loved being surrounded by all the action.
Below is a short list of some of the best hotels in the capital of Palma.
All these best places to stay in Mallorca are stylish, modern, and incredibly convenient.
Ramón Llull House is one of the best places to stay in Majorca! I stayed in a one-bedroom with a fully equipped kitchen, washer, and dryer.
Ramón Llull House is so conveniently located close to the old town and around a 20-minute walk to the beach! I highly recommend it!
Es Princep Boutique Hotel
Es Princep Boutique Hotel is within a stone’s throw of the ocean. Rooftop pool and bar! This is where the solo female traveler with style stays!
Sant Francesc Hotel Singular
Sant Francesc Hotel Singular– This stellar boutique hotel is located in the center of the old town.
Holidays to Majorca can be as inexpensive as you want them to be since it is free to relax by the beach all day. When I was younger, I was all about the cheapest possible option. Now that I am a bit older and less interested in staying out all night, I make different choices.
You can expect my suggestions to fall into the mid-range price point. All my hotel recommendations for 4 nights in Majorca are considered boutique hotels.
If you travel in the high season, which is between May and September, accommodations can be very costly. I have noticed super cheap flights, but overly expensive hotels.
Something to consider is visiting just at the very beginning or end of the season. I rarely go places in high season; for me, the end of the season is the best. That is when I find the best deals.
For the Beach Lovers
If you want to make your Marjoca trip all about the sandy beaches here is a complete list.
My Majorca itinerary will focus on the capital of Palma. With this list, you can easily add to your itinerary.
- Cala Bona – This sandy beach is located on the upper east coast of Majorca. You will find it is a popular holiday destination for British tourists. There is a bicycle track that will take you from Cala Bona to Cala Millor, San Coma, and Son Servera.
- Palma Nova– This resort is often a package holiday deal you will find popular with families visiting the island. Palma Nova Beach is located in the southwest of the island.
- Cala Millor – Dreaming of turquoise water, with crystal clear visibility? Let your beach fantasy come true here in Cala Millor. This Balearic island beach is located on the east coast of the island and has a lovely promenade.
- Calas de Mallorca– This resort area is popular with families and singles. It is located on the east coast of the island, south of Porto Cristo.
- Santa Ponsa – Located on the southwest side of Palma, is most popular with British tourists.

For your first day in Majorca, you can ease into the city and get yourself acclimated to downtown Palma. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon marveling at the incredible architecture and laid-back culture. When you are looking for some tapas in the center of the old town, I have a suggestion:
- Ombu – This tapas restaurant has the best Sangria in Majorca! As well as the most delicious tapas. You should plan your visit and get a table reserved. Majorca is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the summer. It’s smart to have a plan when it comes to restaurants.
After your tapas, it’s time to stroll over to the Catedral-Basilica de Santa Marie de Mallorca! Spend a couple of hours exploring this incredible Gothic church. You can skip the long line if you purchase tickets with the link above.
Bring your camera to the incredible Cathedral for some photographs! If you go early, you will likely have the whole area to yourself as I did.
After that, I would suggest having a rest before dinner. The Spanish tradition of “Siesta” is popular here in Majorca.
That means that after 4 pm some shops will briefly close till around 7 pm.
- Spot– For dinner, I would highly recommend Spot! It was my favorite meal on the island. You should get dinner reservations to guarantee that you will get a table. This restaurant was a little further out than the city center, but not too far. I made the journey on foot in 25 minutes from my hotel.
If you are still looking to squeeze a little more fun into your evening, check out the Marina. There you will find lots of bars with patios overlooking the docks.
Wake up bright and early, and get ready for the beach! Depending on your accommodations, you might have breakfast included at your hotel.
If you don’t have breakfast available and are looking for a place open early, check out Hotel Cappuccino.
They have outdoor seating, and you don’t have to be a hotel guest to eat here.
Platja de Can Pere Antoni Beach
This is your white sand beach in the capital Palma. It was an easy 15-minute walk from my hotel. You can do a few things depending on your budget.
- Bring a blanket, and towel, and pack a lunch from items at a local store ($)
- All of the above, plus rent a lounge chair on the beach for 15 euros for the day. ($)
- Go to Assaona Gastrobeach Club and for 25 euros, get a lounge chair, towel, and the ability to order food and drinks served to you. If you are wondering, I chose this option. I found it to be worth every penny! They also have a full restaurant and a nice bathroom! Make a reservation ahead of time. ($$)
For dinner, I would suggest something a little casual after a day at the beach. If you like tacos, you MUST try this restaurant:
Eat More Tacos! That is always my motto!
This little taco restaurant was straight-up impressive! It has a chill vibe and some incredible eats!
Seating is LIMITED, so I would recommend calling ahead. L’Informal Tacos is so good I would fly back just to go here again.
Another wonderful choice for Tapas is:
I had a wonderful experience here at the Saranna Cafe! It is a small restaurant, with only a handful of tables outside.
This place is perfect for a glass of Sangria and some tapas! If you are planning to visit the Museu Fundación, Saranna Cafe is conveniently located minutes away.
Feeling like a day excursion to the east coast of the island? When you have 4 nights in Majorca you will have time for this! The Drach Caves are listed as very popular holiday destinations for many that visit the island. In most of the package holiday itineraries, I often saw them listed.
To visit these caves you could rent a car and do it yourself, or do an organized tour, which I highly suggest. You can choose from either a full day or a half-day. I would suggest going with the full day!
Included in this full-day tour is sightseeing in Porto Cristo! The little fishing village of Porto Cristo has the most idyllic setting. Get ready to be amazed by turquoise waters and sandy beaches.
*Alternative Day Trip Idea – Check out the city of Sineu!
Sineu is located inland at the most central point of the island. The village of Sineu is known for its weekly Wednesday market. The market draws large crowds from all over the island shopping for local produce.
Sineu has less than 4,000 inhabitants and is a real escape from tourism. If you visit this village for some authentic Majorca cuisine, be sure and try Sa Plaça.
Rooftop Cocktails with a view
After returning from your full-day excursion on the East Coast, no better way to unwind than having a cocktail on a rooftop. I suggest that you book a table for a drink atop the Hotel Es Princep. You could have dinner here, but I would recommend just a drink and saving room for dinner at Quadrat Restaurant & Garden.
The restaurant is only a 7 min walk from the Hotel Es Princep! It is the perfect distance to do both places in one night.
For your last full day and night on your holidays to Majorca, you should make it a special one! The island of Majorca has so much to offer everyone. If you are someone looking to visit a pine forest for hiking, the Balearic Islands have you covered.
Here is a list of some of the most popular activities you can do on your last day:
- 5-hour Catamaran Cruise – Enjoy either a late morning or early evening cruise around the island of Palma. This tour has a buffet lunch included, with alcohol available for purchase. Check rates & availability!
- Snorkeling in Beach Reserve – Take full advantage of these turquoise waters with a day of snorkeling. Do something different on vacation and book this 3-hour activity. All the gear needed for snorkeling is provided! Click here for rates and availability.
- Private Guided Walking Tour – Get an education while being mesmerized by the capital of Palma city’s beauty. I just love a walking tour when I travel solo! It is a great way to make friends. Check rates and availability here.
Another idea for your last day could also be to explore the Serra de Tramuntana on the southwest coast of the island. If you choose to make a trip to the pine forest, you will need to rent a car.

Is Solo Travel Fun In Majorca
Is Majorca a destination for solo-traveling females? I say hell, yes! Palma can be perfect for either a solo getaway or girls’ weekend. It is all in what you make of it.
What I truly loved about Palma was that it’s not just a beach resort or a party island. On the island of Majorca, you can explore the old city, relax by the beach, and even visit pine forests. This is what makes Palma so freaking special.
Needing some solo female travel encouragement?
I know that traveling solo can be a little intimidating or boring sounding.
I promise you, solo travel is empowering and life-changing! Need a little more convincing? I have written a post all about solo traveling.
Pro Tip: Even though I found solo travel to be super safe, I ALWAYS recommend getting travel insurance to avoid any mishaps. Lost luggage or getting sick can happen at any time.
