COOK'S CLUB CALVIÀ BEACH, MALLORCA

The rest of the island can be explored easily from here, so make the most of everything the hotel and locality has to offer, before carving out your own island adventures.
A medieval city with a towering gothic cathedral that hugs the coastline, Palma is a visual spectacle. Spend some time soaking up the atmosphere on the streets, visit an art gallery such as Es Baluard, and take your pick from a cacophony of eateries serving divine food.
This postcard-perfect village nestled in the mountains outside Palma has an otherworldly feeling. Wander through the cobbled alleys, visit the tranquil monastery and stop off at the Chopin Museum. And if you visit on a Sunday, make the most of the colorful weekly street market.
The highest lighthouse in the Balearic Islands, Formentor can be discovered on the towering cliffs of Cap De Formentor. The views here are astounding and this castaway locality shows you another side of Mallorca entirely.
A stunning town in a cove further along the coastline from Palma Nova, Santa Ponsa is an ideal place to spend a day. Visit the classy marina, spend some time at the sweeping beach, and enjoy some traditional Spanish food in one of the eateries.
Further along the coastline is this pretty town characterized by fine sandy beaches and it's access to some incredible mountain trails in the Tramuntana mountain range. The town has a lively calendar of German beer festivals, and is also a good place to jump on a cruise to the nature reserve island of Sa Dragonera.
The focal point of this trendy coastal town is the harbor filled with luxury yachts. The marina is also home to an array of designer boutiques and high-end eateries. It’s perfect for people-watching and wending away a glamorous day.
