Our honeymoon – Mallorca

After departing Barcelona, we arrived on the tiny island of Mallorca for the second half of our honeymoon. We landed in the capital city, Palma, and drove the 30 or so minutes through lush, mountainous terrain to the Port De Soller, where we spent the remainder of our trip. Port De Soller is a tiny port village, and a top travel destination for…Germany. We actually encountered more German people than Spanish during our stay, and a lot of the restaurants offered kind of a German/Spanish fusion. It was interesting, to say the least!

Our hotel room had been listed as a “partial ocean view,” but upon arriving to our hotel and stepping onto our balcony, I had to catch my breath – right in front of my eyes was the most crystal-clear, turquoise water I had ever seen, littered with luxury yachts and fishing boats. It was truly incredible. We spent our days wandering the tiny, hilly town, lounging by the pool or on the beach, and sipping on tropical drinks. One day, we took a boat out to an untouched, natural beach (a Unesco World Heritage site, which means it’s protected from being altered), stopping along the way to take a dip in the crystal clear water. Once on the beach, we hiked up a (steep, kind of scary!) cliff to a restaurant overlooking the sea, and dined on Paella and wine. It was one of the most magical afternoons I’ve ever had.

Every restaurant in this village is outdoors…many of them literally didn’t have indoor seating.

Last dinner ❤

It really and truly was a week in paradise. Looking at these pictures is making me desperately wish I was back in Spain right now…maybe one day we’ll be lucky enough to return, and maybe explore the rest of the island.
