Are you looking for a quiet, authentic, traditional Spanish getaway? You can experience all of that & more in Majorca, flying from Doncaster Sheffield Airport!
Flybe fly twice a week to Majorca from DSA (Doncaster Sheffield Airport!) with really good flight times making it the perfect weekend getaway.
DSA is just the dreamiest airport to fly from. Imagine an airport with easy car parking, no queues, easy check-in, quick efficient security, a premium lounge with all the food/drink options you could ever want, all of this along with friendly staff with constant smiles on their faces…You just wouldn’t think it was possible would you? They really are the best bunch of people. This is my fourth time flying from DSA, I just wish I could fly away with them EVERY.SINGLE.TIME!
They have recently been ranked the best airport in UK, for third time this year! You can really see why. They just get it right everytime.

We’ve been to Majorca a few times, but we have always stayed in the typical tourist resorts. This time we wanted to do it differently! There are some beautiful little hidden gems in Majorca and we were determined to find as many as we could!
We stayed in Soller in the 1902 Townhouse. It’s perfect for exploring Soller and the surrounding areas. We hired a car to really be able to explore as much as we could in three days, we managed to cram a lot in as always!
Soller is somewhere we’ve always wanted to go, it certainly didn’t dissappoint. It’s got a great atmosphere with a real traditional feel to it. They’re lots of festivals throughout the year too, where everyone comes together to celebrate!
Valdemossa is one of the prettiest villages in Majorca. It’s set amongst the Tramuntana Mountains, wherever you look you will see something beautiful. It’s only about 30 minutes from Soller with a very picturesque view along the way!
Deia is another spot that’s been on our list to visit for some time, it’s much smaller than Valdemossa & Soller, but definitely worth a stop. There are some lovely spots for lunch and more Spanish streets to explore!
How beautiful are Majorca’s beaches? We came here to explore the mountains, but we couldn’t resist a stop off at this little treat! That’s what makes Majorca so perfect, you can explore the mountains one day, then the beach the next! This is Es Trenc beach, which is south of the Island. It does get quite busy in peak season though, but we managed to get a quiet little spot at the end of the beach (…FYI the more you walk, the more nude it gets!) It’s 7 Euros to park your car for the day. Bring a picnic, have a swim and enjoy the stunning views!
Es Trenc is about an hour away from Soller, so its worth planning a day there to really make the most of it.
We met friends in Pollenca to spend a day exploring, we walked from Pollenca to Cala Boquer beach which is absolutely beautiful! It’s about an hour walk through the Boquer Valley to reach the cove, it gets quite steep towards the end but we walked it fine in our flip flops! (Probably would of been more sensible in trainers though!)
The cove is really quiet, I guess because you have to walk to it, it puts people off. There really is nothing better than an empty beach, especially in August!
Just a little further North from Pollensa is Mirador es Colomer, the views are insane! I would recommend walking Cala Boquer in the morning, spend some time at Cala Boquer beach, before heading to Mirador Es Colomer in the afternoon. You could then spend the evening watching the sunset over Cap De Formentor!
Fornalutx is pretty rural village just 15 minute’s drive away from Soller, there is a walk you can do from Soller to Fornalutux which is meant to be beautiful, but we were tight on time so we just hopped in the car.
Fornalutx has been voted one of the prettiest villages in Spain in 2017!
