#1 - Sa Calobra - the most fascinating scenery in Mallorca
One of the most fascinating places on the island of Mallorca is the Sa Calobra area.
First the road from Coll del Reis down the mountains is fun and spectacular, plus a short, easy walk takes you to a hidden beach at the bottom of the valley Torrent de Pareis. The opening is small while you are surrounded by mountains.
#2 - Formentor view from Albercrutx - Stunning Mallorca scenery
Cape Formentor is another one of the most famous areas in Mallorca. It offers grandiose scenery with steep cliffs.
One of my favorite viewpoints is from the path to the Albercrutx tower with the view of the headland and the Formentor beach.
#3 - Campanet Caves - Underground Landscapes in Mallorca
Mallorca is the home of many underground caves. Several are open to the public.
The most visited are Drach and Hams but one of my favorites is the Campanet caves. It is smaller but is home to a large variety of magnificent formations.
#4 - Port de Alcudia
You may be visiting Mallorca to spend time at the beach. The island has a large choice of them: small coves, long sandy beaches, hidden calas...
But even those in main touristic towns can be beautiful. In this picture, you can see one of the pier along the Port d'Alcudia beach. Turquoise waters, hills, sand and fun boat activities... it has it all!
#5 - Calo del Moro - most beautiful cala in Mallorca
Just before, we saw a good example of a long, sandy beach. In this one, you can discover one of the most beautiful calas in Mallorca (see my list): Calo del Moro.
Some hiking is required to reach it. But the small beach is stunning, with rock formations, caves and lush vegetation.
#6 - Coll del Reis - most famous road in Mallorca
When I talked about Sa Calobra above, I mentioned to road from the mountain pass. This is it! Probably one of the most photographed road in the World. LOL.
The laces snuggle in the mountains before heading to the sea.
#7 - Palma Cathedral - iconic photo of Mallorca
The cathedral of Palma de Mallorca, called La Seu, is the most iconic building on the island.
The 121m long building was started in 1229 and finished in 1601. And just below is a water feature offering reflections which are great for photography!
#8 - Fornalutx - most charming village in Mallorca
Mallorca is dotted with charming historical villages, especially in the mountain area (Tramuntana).
One of the most beautiful is Fornalutx, not far from Soller. The stones, the staircases, the trees... a concentration of charm!
#9 - Far des Cap Gros
My picture here does not do justice to the landscape. But I have included it because it is my favorite viewpoint on the island.
The view from Far des Cap Gros combines it all: the cliffs, the protected harbor of Soller and the mountains in the background.
#10 - Sa Cova Foradada - unique picture in Mallorca
Sa Cova Foradada, one of the hidden gems of the island. The view from the top with the arch and the lighthouse is already great.
But if you can climb down a little, you can see the lighthouse through the arch! Such a fun photo to take!
All these amazing Mallorca Photo spots within this article are included in my Travel Guide eBook (with tips and GPS coordinates) to help you plan a wonderful road trip around the island:

#11 - Jardines de Alfabia
Inland, you can also find old fincas surrounded my magnificent gardens.
In Jardines de Alfabia, there are several water features, trees and views worth the visit. In the picture above, you can see the cistern with the reflections of the garden.
#12 - Magical Mallorcan sunrise
There is a large choice of places to watch sunrises and sunsets on Mallorca.
If staying around Port d'Alcudia, the many piers are fantastic to greet the sun as it rises. A fantastic way to start the day!
#13 - Formentor Beach
Accessible by car or by boat, Formentor beach is often listed as one of the most beautiful beaches in Mallorca: a long sandy beach, turquoise and transparent waters, hills covered with lush vegetation... postcard-perfect place!
#14 - Gorg Blau
The reservoir Gorg Blau is not often listed in the most beautiful places or best landscapes in Mallorca. But I think this is an easy and beautiful stop not to be missed.
It is along the beautiful Ma-10 road through the Tramuntana mountains.
#15 - Alcudia Medieval Town
If you are looking for something completely different from the beaches and mountains, head to Alcudia.
The town still has medieval walls and ancient building. The old center is very charming and worth a visit.
#16 - Torre de s'Estallela
Many towers have been built around the island. They were part of a defense system to warn in case of attack. You will see many of them as you travel around the island.
Torre de s'Estallela is one of my favorites. You must walk to reach it, but it is worth it: the combination of the natural sea caves with the historical tower creates a wonderful experience.
#17 - Tramuntana Road Ma-10
Ma-10 is the most beautiful road in Mallorca. It is the main road crossing the Tramunana mountains from Pollença to Andratx.
Since you drive in the middle of the mountains, the views are stunning the entire way. It is difficult to choose just one picture but this one show you the peaks, the trees and the rock formations you can enjoy.
#18 - View of Sa Dragonera island
Sa Dragonera island is a Nature Reserve, just off the coast of Mallorca.
It is accessible by boat from Sant Elm. But even if you don't want to visit, you can enjoy the views from town. Does it look like a sleeping dragon to you?
#19 - Mirador es Pontas
I have seen many coastal arches around the World but this one is quite impressive, because of its size and how close it is to the shore.
It is famous for being one of the most difficult places to climb, doing Deep Water Soloing.
#20 - Wild Cala d'Egos
Part of the Mallorca Island remains wild, thankfully.
You can reach some of the coves only on foot or by boat. The colors in those areas can be truly mesmerizing.

#21 - Mondrago Nature Park
Mondrago Nature Park is a protected area with several beaches and absolutely transparent waters.
Here you can relax at the beach, snorkel or go hiking around the headlands.
#22 - Cala Pi to Cala Beltran hike
Several of the calas in Mallorca are long and narrow. In my opinion, those are the most photogenic.
At Cala Pi you can hike to the headland on the way to another cove, and, as you look back, you can enjoy a very typical Mallorcan landscape: blue waters, green lush trees, rocky cliffs...
#23 - Mirador Es Colomer - most famous viewpoint in Mallorca
On the way to Cape Formentor, the most famous viewpoint on the island is Es Colomer.
A pathway and staircase has been set up to enjoy panoramic platforms looking towards the tall cliffs of the headland.
However, it is extremely popular. So visit early or late to find a parking spot.
#24 - Valldemossa
Valldemossa is another one of the historical villages in the mountains.
He has become famous because Chopin has stayed here during a Winter. The center with the palace and museums is the main attractions. But take the time to wander the rest of the village. It is full of beautiful stone houses and decorated with plants.
#25 - Soller Trolley
Another typical picture of Mallorca... that you will see on many postcards. The old trolley still runs between Port de Soller and Soller.
It is beautifully maintained and brings a lot of charm to the towns.
#26 - Impressive entrance to Arta Caves
My absolute favorite cave in Mallorca is Arta, although it is not the best one for photography.
Inside, the structures are very impressive because of their heights. And the entrance to the cave is the most impressive (now the exit). It is located right by the sea inside a cliff. The cave has been used for a long time, thanks to this location.
#27 - Son Marroig - Most romantic landscape in Mallorca
Between Valldemossa and Deia, the estate of Son Marroig offers incredible views of the rugged coastline. The oldest part of the estate is from the 15h and 16th century. And it has been updated in the 19th century by the Austrian Archduke Ludwig Salvator.
It has become famous as the most romantic spot in the island with the white marble pavilion overlooking the cliffs and gardens.
#28 - Cala Mesquida
Cala Mesquida is a long stretch of fine sand (350m) with sand dunes at the back. A beautiful coastal landscape.
Contrary to many calas, the wind can be strong here and creates onshore waves.
#29 - Pollenca
Pollenca is another historical town. It has been settled since Prehistoric times. Full of unique buildings and surrounded by mountains, it is now attracting many artists. From the main large square, you can explore narrow alleys. But the principal attraction is the staircase up to the Calvari!
#30 - Arta Sanctuary
Overlooking the town of Arta, the sanctuary was built on top a 182m (597ft) high hill.
The current church is not fascinating, but the views in all directions for the fortification walls are well worth a visit.

#31 - Cala Figuera fishing village
I have shared villages from the mountains, but for something different, head to Cala Figuera. This fishing village still has the traditional houses and boats in the depth of the waterways. Such a peaceful environment!
#32 - Torre de Vigilancia Maritima
During WWII, the Alcudia Bay was used for the training of submariners. Maritime towers were built in pairs all around it. Some of them are still standing and a few are maintained. This one near Finca Son Real and the necropolis is the most photogenic of them all.
#33 - Monestir de Miramar
Niched between sea and mountains, the place has been occupied by various religious orders since the Middle Ages.
In 1872, it was purchased by Austrian Archduke Ludwig Salvator who invited artists, intellectuals and royals to stay here. Today you can visit the monastery with the main building, a church, a garden and a park. It is very picturesque and peaceful.
#34 - Torrent del Pareis
In Sa Calobra, the most famous picture is the one of the small opening at the beach.
But from that same location, if you turn around, you can admire the views of the canyon Torrent del Pareis where you can also go hiking.
#35 - Ses Paisses
During the Bronze Age, several settlements were established on the island. They are called Talayot for the talaiotic culture.
Near Arta, Ses Paisses is one of the best-preserved example. Its main feature is the impressive protection wall and gate with giant rocks.
It is difficult to imagine how they built it!
#36 - Cala Beltran
From Cala Pi, a beautiful short (but with a steep section) hike leads to a very narrow hidden cove: Cala Beltran.
This waterway looks like a snake with beautiful curves, transparent water, and lush vegetation all around. Stunning!
#37 - Castell de Bellver
While in Palma de Mallorca, don't stay focussed only on the famous cathedral.
Just a 10min drive from the old center, you can climb the Bellver Castle which has a rare circular structure.
First, the castle is unique and fascinating. Second, from the top, you can enjoy 360° views towards Palma, the sea and the mountains.
#38 - Capdepera castle
Located on top a hill, the Castell of Capdepera has been in use for a long time thanks to its strategic location.
First built during the 14th century, it protected the inhabitants from pirate attacks. During the 16th century, there were 125 houses inside the walls. And in the 18th century it was used as a military complex.
It is a fascinating structure with great views.
#39 - Pines and Sand at Cala Agulla
Sometimes, you just need a change of perspective. Cala Agulla is one of the most popular beaches, East of island.
It is nice with calm waters and sand. But nothing special in terms of landscapes.
However, pine trees stand right next to the beach. And if you take a few steps back, the views become captivating!
#40 - Algaida Windmill
As you drive throughout the island of Mallorca, inland, you will notice the ruins of many windmills.
Several of them have been restored to their full glory and are very photogenic.
This one stands in the old center of Algaida.
