The island of Mallorca has become an increasingly popular travel destination over the last decade, and this has not gone unnoticed by the most important influencers. Heavenly beaches, tiny hidden coves or picture-book villages are the best place to look for these modern-day celebrities who use their phone cameras to sate the curiosity of tens of thousands of followers.
JS Hotels has an important portfolio of hotels in Mallorca, so you will always find one of our hotels near the most popular destinations. Let’s take a journey around some of the most beautiful parts of the island with these social media celebrities and also visit our nearest hotels.
Palma de Mallorca
While the island is best known for its dreamy beaches, we should not ignore all the attractions of the capital: great restaurants, a beautiful old city centre with narrow streets where you can get lost in history (the 13th to 14th century Cathedral is particularly stunning), and nightlife which is on a par with the other great capital cities in the Mediterranean. Jesús Velázquez (@closeto50withstyle), regional manager of Inditex and content creator, is well aware of that, and that’s why he invited his almost 90 thousand followers to appreciate the beauty of the Cathedral and its surroundings.
At JS Palma Stay, only five minutes from the airport, you can not only enjoy everything Palma has to offer (bus 25 to the city centre takes only a few minutes), but also the beach at Cala Estància, only two minutes from the hotel.
Far from the city and towns and the most popular tourist destinations, Es Trenc is one of the beaches you should think about if you’re looking for somewhere quiet and with crystal-clear waters. Perhaps that is what made Patricia Bárcena, CEO of Sozialmás and blogger, visit the area and take photos on one of the machine gun turrets scattered along the coast ever since the Second World War. Located about forty minutes from both JS Corso Suites and JS Cape Colom in Portocolom and JS Palma Stay in the capital, it is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled natural environments in Mallorca.
Anyone seeking out the most charming towns and villages must not miss Pollensa in the northeast of Mallorca, about 20 minutes from our hotels in Puerto de Alcudia and Playa de Muro. The historic centre full of narrow streets with centuries of history has been chronicled by Antonio Miranda, CEO of the Creative Head communication agency. The Roman bridge and parish of Our Lady of the Angels, an ancient Knights Templar temple, are two of its biggest historical attractions. If you want to see more after a tour of its beautiful streets, just a few minutes down the main road you can visit the coastal town of Puerto de Pollença to round off a great day.
Hidden in the mountains to the west of the island, less than half an hour by car from our hotel in Can Pastilla and just over an hour by bus 210, you will find one of the most beautiful towns in Mallorca. The cobbled streets of Valldemossa are particularly famous for having witnessed the affair between the Polish composer Frédéric Chopin and the French writer George Sand, and it remains to this day an ideal place for couples in such a romantic and bucolic setting. Alex Waltern, photographer and professional travel blogger with a whopping 160 thousand followers on Instagram, didn’t waste the chance to take a snapshot here with his partner, Christine. But the small town has much more than just beautiful scenery: the Royal Charterhouse and the Palace of King Sancho are also places you have to see, as well as some of the hiking trails that surround the town and let you enjoy the amazing views.
For sun and beach fans like Serena Villani (@serenastravel), a tireless creator of travel and lifestyle content, Cala Llombards is one of the coastal treasures that you must not miss. Thirty minutes by car from our JS Cape Colom and JS Corso Suites Hotels in Portocolom, the white sand and crystal-clear waters are ideal for a most relaxing day. For people who want more, the cove is next to es Pontàs (the Big Bridge), a rock formation shaped like a bridge and a popular challenge for climbers, as well as numerous caves dug out of the cliffs by fishermen to store their boats.
