This trip showcases two sides of Majorca. Start slow in the bohemian mountain village of Deia, before being whisked off to Playa de Muro – home to one of the longest sandy beaches in the Balearic Islands.
Step out of Palma de Mallorca Airport and into a private transfer that’ll deliver you straight to Deia.
This little north-west village curves like a horseshoe around a deep valley leading to Cala Deia beach. It’s also home to a string of luxurious hillside hotels. It doesn’t matter which one you pick, either – swooping valley views, al fresco dining terraces and swimming pools are a given.
You’ve got three days to explore the golden streets of Deia. Poke around Robert Graves’ writing retreat, watch artists at work in open galleries, or follow the tiled Stations of the Cross up to the village church.
Just make sure to save a day for the rocky beach and cliffside bars at Cala Deia. You can catch a taxi there – or follow the well-marked footpath that skids down through silvery olive and almond terraces.
A private transfer takes you east through the Tramuntana Mountains to your hotel in Playa de Muro.
The beach scene here couldn’t be more different to Deia: instead of a mountain-framed cove, you get one of the longest stretches of sand in Majorca.
Playa de Muro is a beach town of many faces. The north end hands out a platter of hotels, restaurants and cafés that taper off as you roll south. Sand dunes mark the beginning of rugged S’Albufera Natural Park – the lagoons here are a haven for birdlife.
After breakfast on day nine, hop into your private return transfer. Palma de Mallorca Airport is about an hour’s drive away from Playa de Muro.
