Start your travel plan:
from 14/06/2009 to 15/06/2009
You just landed in Majorca....what to do in the next 36 hours?
Just start going to Es Baluard Museum, a brand renewed neighbourdhood in which, at the end of the afternoon, you can simply spend time walking around and having a nice glass of white wine in its terrace. It is an excellent beginning with amazing views over the bay and the city, and what is most important, it has a good collection of modern art.
It's almost dinner time, so it's is also a good opportunity to taste a couple of tapas. Going from Es Baluard to the Beewe's bar is a short walk. Less than five minutes: a good introduction to a jazz concert in the Saratoga jazz club.
Located in the roof of a classical hotel of the city, Saratoga's jazz club is almost a classic now.
A good concert and then you decide whether to go to sleep, or on the other hand, to explore the nightlife of the island. I suggest a soft clubbing experience with Garito Cafe. You can stay there until two or three o'clock easily, if not more, and then you can go to sleep to be on track for the day after.
The day after, it's a new experience. The area of Santa Catalina has different cafes and bars to start the day with a good coffee. I recommend Islenyo bar, just in front of the Market of Santa Catalina, where you can also buy fresh food and fruits.
Take you time, and then take a taxi to the Joan Miro Fondation, where the universal artist worked and lived for years. So, you are already there, and you want to have a nice lunch.
If you have a car, just go to San Telm for a nice paella in a restaurant with fantastic views, Cala Conills.
If you don't have a car, you can do a more modest option, and less expensive. Taste a black rice in Es Molinar, a neighbourhood not far from the city center opened now more than ever to the sea. There are different places there, just try the one you think it better suits you.
It is time for a culture dosis, and now it is time to rush direction to the Cathedral, where Majorcan artist Miquel Barcelo has performed its major work so far. Just discover it and give your opinion on Infomallorca.net
What to do on Saturday evening if you still have time to visit Palma? Just go around, do a bit of shopping, go to the old area, enter in a church, and explore the gothic quartier, which is a magic heritage of the Mediterranean culture.
More options? Of course, you can spend a bit of time relaxing yourself walking through Paseo Maritimo, next to the boats and the bay before going to an exciting dinner time. It is time to say goodbye to the island but before you can try an Italian restaurant in Sant Catalina area.

A lot of people still believe that the treasures of Mallorca are limited to its beaches lapped by blue turquoise waters and its nights of guaranteed fun. Fortunately, more and more people are discovering that this island in the Mediterranean is also a natural jewel with mountain ranges, nature parks, hiking and cycling routes, birdwatching sites, an offer of top class rural hotels, outdoor activities such as balloon or canoe trips, visits to the prehistoric remains on the island, visits to farms or vineyards, horse riding…
