Whether you choose to stay in a bustling city, an eco-tourism retreat in the hills, or a quaint former fishing village, there are countless romantic experiences in the best places in Majorca for couples. Enjoy tranquil strolls through cobbled streets, watch the sunset over the sea, or hike off-the-beaten-path to find your own secluded paradise. Each of these settings offers a unique and romantic backdrop perfect for a couple's getaway.

1. Take a Romantic Road Trip

There are several routes in Majorca that make for the perfect romantic road trip. One is the captivating Formentor peninsula, accessed from Port de Pollença via the stunning Ma-2210 coastal road. Your first stop should be the Es Colomer viewpoint, giving you a stunning view of the wild peninsula. Then, carry on down the dramatic switch-backs on the pine-studded hillside towards Formentor beach.

You could pause here to lounge on the exclusive-feeling beach or continue along the Carrer Zona Formentor towards the almost-secret-beaches Cala Figuera and Cala Murta. The road sweeps on until you finally catch a glimpse of your end destination – the lighthouse on Cap Formentor. It’s a stunning photo finish and the perfect spot for a picnic.

The second top road trip is between the old towns of Pollença and Sóller (in either direction), along the stunning Ma-10 route. This winding road passes through epic mountainous scenery and pine forests, past several fantastic viewpoints and two aquamarine reservoirs. It’s worth making the big detour down to Sa Colabra or Cala Tuent, reached via a small and infamously windy road that’s as popular with daring cyclists as driving enthusiasts. Both spurs of the road reward you with a stunning beach.

Formentor: Total ~46 min drive (no stops), 334 bus ~1hr. ~20km.

Ma-10: Total ~ 1hr 20 (no stops) 55km. With Cala Tuent 2hr 15.

2. Sail on a sunset boat

Nothing says romance like a watching the sun sink below the horizon from a boat. There are many options for sunset cruises, with tours leaving from the capital in the south and northern resorts Port de Pollença and Port d’Alcudia.

Alcudia Sea Explorer and NoFrills Excursions offer tours out of Alcudia to watch the magical sunset – and also a sunrise version if you prefer. In Port de Pollença, FunnyBoats offers boats for private hire at sunset, complete with your own skipper.

In Palma de Majorca, you can book a boat and snorkelling tour with sunset option (~£25), a sunset party boat with DJ and dancefloor (~£35), or a four-hour catamaran sunset tour (~£60) via sites like GetYourGuide or Sunboo. Oasis Catamaran offers adults-only sunset tours with tapas and drinks on board and the chance to paddleboard.

Of course, if you don’t fancy taking to the waves, pick your spot in a sea-facing terrace or rooftop bar to catch the sun dropping over the ocean horizon, with a drink in hand and no chance of waves.

Alcudia Sea Explorer: Sunrise + dolphins €65, Formentor €60

Oasis Catamaran: Adults-only sunset + tapas, drinks + SUP €78pp

3. Enjoy a Wine Tasting

Engaging in wine tasting in Majorca is a particularly popular activity for couples, offering a blend of romantic scenery and exquisite local flavors. Whether you're sampling Majorca’s finest wines in a picturesque, rural setting surrounded by vineyards or exploring the various options provided by Mallorca Wine Tours, there's an experience to suit every taste and budget. From leisurely walking tours with wine tastings in the heart of Palma to comprehensive Finca experiences complete with Flamenco shows, the choices are abundant.

Wine Tasting Mallorca, located in Pollença, is renowned for offering tastings of five local wines, complemented by regional delicacies on their scenic rooftop terrace or at your holiday accommodation. For a more personalized experience, consider visiting local wineries like Bodegas Can Vidalet, nestled between Alcudia and Pollença. Bodegas Bordoy invites guests for tastings from just €16, and Son Sureda Ric specializes in private group tours starting at €190. If you're seeking an alcohol-free alternative, the Ecovinyassa orchard near Sóller provides a delightful two-hour tour through its citrus groves, complete with tastings of fresh orange juice and local snacks for €15 per person.

Mallorca Wine Tours: Palma wine tour €90. Train wine tour €75. VIP Finca ~€125.

Bodegas Can Vidalet: Tour, tasting & tapas €35pp. Tasting & tapas €25pp.

4. Stroll around an old town

One of the most romantic activities when visiting Europe is the simple joy of strolling around an old town, soaking up the atmosphere. Exploring the charming, cobbled streets, sleepy corners, and sun-drenched squares of Majorca's old towns is a must-do, offering some of the best attractions in Majorca for couples.

The top old towns to visit include Alcudia, known for its twice-weekly market and bustling squares; Palma, with its wide shopping boulevards; and Pollença, renowned for its pretty architecture and the romantic Calvari steps leading up to a hilltop chapel.

Sóller is another gem, brimming with charm and featuring a beautiful vintage tram that winds through the quaint town center. The architecture, cafes, churches, and the tram journey itself are beautiful experiences, and you can travel down the hill to its seaside counterpart, Port de Sóller, for a romantic afternoon on the seafront.

Just a ten-minute drive from Sóller town are the Jardins d'Alfàbia, one of the island’s more hidden romantic venues and a key attraction in Majorca. These botanical gardens are lush with both local and exotic flora, offering numerous picturesque spots for capturing beautiful photos together.

Sóller to Port de Sóller via tram: €8 each way

Jardins d'Alfàbia: €8pp (<10s free)

5. Hike to a secret beach

Adventurous couples should abandon the beaten track and hike to one of the more-secluded beaches. In the Alcudia, the top spot is Coll Baix beach reached from Carrer de la Montana, by hiking along the Refugi del Coll Baix. You’ll wind your way downhill through shady, pine-forest trails until you reach the deserted beach. Since there are no facilities, be sure to pack a romantic picnic with drinks, but you may well have the spot to yourselves.

On the Formentor peninsula, you’ll find Cala Figuera and Cala Murta. You park or hop off the bus at the Finca Cala Murta and then choose the path to the left or right of the road (facing the lighthouse). Left leads you down to the slightly more well-known Cala Figuera, but right takes you through the wooded hillside to stony Cala Murta – a dream snorkelling spot with barely a soul around.

In the Cala Ratjada area, try lesser-known Platja de Ses Cavasses. It’s a small sliver of rocky shore untouched by mass tourism and the water is pristine for swimming. If you prefer a golden-sandy beach, head to nearby Cala Torta. It gets plenty of visitors but is still thoroughly undeveloped, so it feels spacious and quiet compared to in-town beaches.

Coll Baix: Parking on Carrer de la Muntana

Platja de Ses Cavasses: Park at Restaurante Paraiso de Barbassa, bypass Cala Aguila
