Pozdravljeni vsi navdušenci nad potovanji, 
Mallorco sem si želela obiskati kar nekaj časa, najbolj zaradi prečudovitih plaž in turkiznega morja ter seveda španske kulture. Z očetom sva našla odlično ponudbo letalskih kart in ker sva otok dobro raziskala, sem se odločila, da z vami delim svoj potovalni vodič. Če vas zanima kje prenočiti, kaj si ogledati in kje dobro jesti, vas vabim k nadaljnjem branju.

Hello everybody,
I wanted to visit Mallorca for a long time, mostly because of their beautiful beaches and the Spanish culture. My dad and I found a great flight deal online and we were already looking forward to our trip. Because we did a lot of exploring of this beautiful island, I decided to share with you my Mallorca travel guide. If you want to know where to stay, what to do and where to find great restaurants - keep reading :)

Kako do Mallorce / How to get to Mallorca

Iz Slovenije je zagotovo najboljša izbira nakup kart preko spletne strani Ryanair in sicer iz Graza z letalsko družbo Laudamotion. Za povratno karto sva odštela 60 eur na osebo za čas potovanja od 26. julija do 1. avgusta.

{english}
We bought a plane ticket on Ryanair website from Graz, Austria to Mallorca, Spain (PMI airport). The operating airline was Laudamotion. A return ticket was only 60 euros from July 26th to August 1st. Since I am from Velenje, getting to Graz was very easy and It took us only 1 hour and 45 minutes by car.



Najem avta na Mallorci ali uporaba javnega prevoza? / Should I rent a car in Mallorca or use public transport?

Vsekakor bi rekla najem avta. Mallorca je majhen otok, vendar vožnja z javnim transportom vzame enostavno preveč časa. Mallorca je zelo dobro zasnovana kar se tiče cest, ker je iz ene strani otočka do druge avtocesta in je zaradi tega vožnja enostavna. Na vseh straneh otoka so zanimive razgledne točke in znamenitosti, zato je po mojem mnenju najem avta super izbira za tiste, ki si želijo od Mallorce kaj več kot samo ogled glavnega mesta in plaž. Avtorent je precej smotana zadeva, vsaj zame je bilo tako, ker nisem vedela točno, kateri ponudnik je najboljši. Možnosti sta dve, najem avta v naprej ali pa najem na letališču. Jaz sem izbrala drugo možnost, ker so na vseh spletnih straneh zahtevali ogromne depozite (okoli 1000 eur za avto) za najem v naprej. Midva sva najela avto pri ponudniku Hertz na letališču. Za 7 dni za Opel Corso sva plačala 37 eur na dan + 100 eur depozita, ki sva ga dobila nazaj v dveh dneh po vračilu avta.

{english}
Definitely rent a car. Mallorca is not a large island, but their public transport can take you too much of your precious time. The sightseeing points are scattered all over the island and that is why it is better to go for a car rental. Now, this can be a nerve-wracking thing, as it was for me. There are two options, rent a car in advance or renting it once you get there. My recommendation is to not rent it in advance. Why? Because almost every car rental company will want a deposit when you rent a car online, and sometimes you don't even get that amount back. The amount of deposit is huge, around 1000 euros for a car + price for rental per day. That is why we rented a car when we arrived at the airport. There are many rental companies there, but we suggest Hertz. For 7 days of rental of a new Opel Corsa, we paid 37 euros/day + 100 euros of deposit which we got back 2 days after we returned the car. 


Kdaj je najboljši čas za potovanje po Mallorci / When to visit Mallorca


Jaz sem obiskala Mallorco konec julija in takrat je bilo tam peklensko vroče. Za tiste, ki bi se radi samo kopali je to odlično, za takšne, ki pa radi raziskujete, bi priporočala konec avgusta/začetek septembra.

{english}
I was there at the beginning of August and I would say that it was not a great time for exploring the island, because there was almost 37 degrees and it was impossible to enjoy sightseeing. If you ask me, I would recommend visiting Mallorca in September, because the weather is still nice and the temperatures are normal. 

Kje prenočiti / Where to stay

Midva sva rezervirala hotel preko Bookinga, izbrala sva Hostal Bahía Azul, hotelček v luškani ribiški vasici Portocolom, ki je del Felanitx-a in je od glavnega mesta Palma oddaljen 1 uro vožnje z avtom. Vse o tem hotelu si lahko preberete tukaj. Za 7 nočitev z zajtrkom sva odštela le 560 eur. Mislim, da boljšo ponudbo nebi mogla najti. Hotel je enostavno zakon, saj je lociran tik ob obali, ima bazen in lepo urejene sobe. Priporočam ga vsem, ki imate raje udoben in domač občutek kot pa luksuz. V bližini nastanitve je veliko restavracij in kavarn, poleg tega pa je vsa vasica Portocolom ob obali in je zaradi tega super za mirne počitnice in krasne sprehode ob obali.

{english}
We booked a hotel with breakfast in a beautiful east coast village of Portocolom, it is a traditional fishing village, located in the district of Felanitx, which is a 1-hour drive from Palma. The name of our hotel was Hostal Bahía Azul (you can read all about it here). I definitely recommend this hotel if you prefer cosiness over modernism and luxury. The property is right at the sea, near many restaurants, bars and supermarkets and is only 10 minutes walk to a famous beach Cala Marcal. I really enjoyed staying at this hotel because every apartment has a terrace and there is also a great pool outside.

Kje jesti v Portocolomu / Where and what to eat in Portocolom 

Če se odločite za letovanje v vasici Portocolom bi vam priporočala restavracijo Ses Portadores. Cene so malo višje, a je tudi nivo hrane zelo visok (okoli 12 eur/jed). Hrana je tu res okusna. V najinem hotelu je tudi restavracija, kar je bilo zelo prioročno, da nisva potrebovala vedno iskati restavracij, ampak sva lahko nekaj pojedla tudi v hotelu. Restavracija Es Retorn ima odlične italijanske jedi, pice, lazanje in testenine po ugodnih cenah. Ker obožujem palačinke nisem mogla domov brez da bi jih poskusila tudi tam. Caffe chill out La playa je tik ob najbolj znameniti plaži blizu Portocoloma in tam sem jedla zelo okusne palačinke z jagodami. Imejte v mislih, da v majhnih vasicah oz. predelih Mallorce imajo siesto, kar pomeni da imajo nekaj ur zaprte restavracije, zato načrtujte kosilo pred 13.00 uro.

Naj opozorim, da Mallorca ni niti malo ugodna. Večina restavracij ponuja običajno hrano po oderuških cenah. V Palmi sem plačala za tortico 7 eur, kava pa je bila tam 3 eur. Paella je 17 eur, kepica sladoleda pa 4 eur. Če obiščete Mallorco morate poskusiti paello (riž z zelenjavo ali morskimi sadeži), gazpacho (mrzla paradižnikova juha) in tapas (majhni prigrizki). 


{english}
If you decide to stay in Portocolom, then I highly recommend a restaurant called Ses Portadores. The prices are a bit high (around 12 euro/dish), but you always get an appetizer before for free and the food is so delicious. We were lucky because our hotel also had a restaurant so we could eat there when we didn't want to go around and search for other restaurants. Restaurant Es Retorn in Portocolom has amazing pizzas and lasagnas for a fair price. Because I love pancakes I couldn't go home without trying pancakes at least once. So I googled it and found Caffe chill out La playa where they serve delicious pancakes with strawberries. 

Let me warn you that Mallorca isn't cheap at all. Most restaurants have very high prices for their dishes. For example pancakes 7 euros, Lasagna 10 euros, Seafood Paella 17 euros, one scoop of ice cream 4 euros. When in Mallorca you must try paella (rice with vegetables or seafood), gazpacho (cold tomato soup) and tapas.

Kaj si ogledati na Mallorci? / What to see in Mallorca

Skoraj nemogoče je videti čisto vse, čeprav je otok majhen, še posebej kadar je 37 stopinj. Midva sva si uspela ogledati sledeče, kar bi tudi proporočala vsem:

1) Razgledna točka: Mirador Es Colomer 

Je na severozhodu Mallorce in je super za čudovit razgled. Vožnja do tja je precej naporna, še posebej ker je težko najti parkirno mesto. Ogled je brezplačen. 

2) Slavna plaža Cala Sant Vicenç

Tukaj nimam kaj preveč za povedati, edino to da je pogled res lep in da je plaža neverjetno lepa. Turkizno morje te pač čisto osupne. Najbolje je, da se sem odpravite zgodaj zjutraj in si zagotovite prosto mesto na plaži. Zraven je nekaj restavracij in kavarn ter brezplačno parkirišče.

3) Staro mesto Alcúdia

Če so vam všeč stara mestna jedra, starinska arhitektura in ozke ulice priporočam ogled tega mesta, predvsem starega dela, saj je novi del bolj moderen in zasut s stojnicami. Iz starega dela se lahko sprehodite tudi do plaže. V mestu je tudi veliko kavarn in restavracij ter majhnih butičnih trgovinic, parkirišče pa je blizu mesta in je cenovno ugodno.


4) Soline Salinas de Es trenç

Na žalost jaz nisem imela možnosti si v celoti ogledati solin, ker sem prišla tja tik pred koncem delovnega časa. Priporočam, da se na ogled prijavite prej in se tako izognete problemu, ki sem ga imela jaz. Tudi trgovinica z izdelki iz soli, ki je zraven solin je vredna obiska. Jaz sem tam poskusila sladoled s solnim cvetom in karamelo, njami!

5) Glavno mesto Palma 

V palmi je res gneča, vsepovsod je ogromno turistov in restavracije so čisto polne. Temu so primerne tudi cene. Parkirišče v Palmi je ugodno, pa tudi dobro zasnovano, saj je več garažnih hiš blizu samega centra.


{english}
Since we rented a car which I mentioned above, the whole island was very reachable. We stayed in Mallorca for 7 days but decided to split our vacation for 4 days of exploring and the other 3 days of relaxing on the beach. It is almost impossible to see everything, but here are my top 5 attractions to see when exploring the island:

1) Observation points: Mirador Es Colomer and Cap de Formentor


Great place to take amazing photos. The parking at Mirador Es Colomer is free. There was a one hour drive from Portocolom. 

2) Famous beach Cala Sant Vicenç


Nothing much to say here, only that the view is ah-mazing and I have never seen a beach more beautiful than this one. The turquoise sea has astonished me.  It is the best to go there in the morning and take a beach towel with you. There are also some cafes and bars near the beach and you can park there for free.

3) Old town Alcúdia

If you like old towns with narrow streets and amazing architecture, then you will love Alcúdia. There are many little shops and cafes in the old part of the city. You can also go out of this old part and walk to the beach.

4) Flor de Sal d'es trenç / Salinas d'es trenç (salt fields)


Unfortunately, I haven't got the chance to visit salt fields because they have certain opening hours and a few guided tours per day. Make sure to book a visit in advance. Even if you do not decide to see salt fields, you can still visit the shop with many salt products. I've tried salted caramel ice cream. 

5) Capital city Palma


Palma is very crowded with tourists. Many restaurants are full and it is hard to find a place to chill in peace. Also, everything is very expensive there. We went to Cappuccino Grand Cafe and paid 8 euros for one piece of matcha cake, and 5 euros for a coffee. But at least the place was very rustic and nice. Parking in Palma is not expensive, there are many parking lots only a few minutes walk to the city centre.
