The story behind the image

The island of Mallorca used to be known for its extreme parties – especially from German tourists at El Arenal. But this is just a small spot and does unjustice to the rest of the island. So, in 2006 we spent 10 days to discover the other, less known side of the island.

Once you are there, the islands’ beauty can be easily spotted, and it can be awesome, like in the North-West where the rough cliffs of the western coast meet the Mediterranean Sea. The island seems to combine many places in one place, and you can do almost everything from sailing to hiking, from partying to relaxing. It turned out that ten days were not enough to see it all, especially when it’s a hot summer! Relentlessly, we took our rental car to some of the most remote places, like Formentor or Punta de Capdepera to report back home how awesome Mallorca is indeed.

This is the secluded beach of Cala Llombards in the South-East. I am totally in love with the clear green and blue water, and the clean beach. For us, it had the mood of a Caribbean beach, and I’d go there again, anytime.
