Gay Mallorca Mallorca City Guide City Guides > Spain > Gay Mallorca Mallorca Curation by Bastiaan Ellen, words by Jessica Benavides CanepaMallorca embodies the best of the Balearics at every sun-kissed turn - a lyrical cornucopia of ravishing coastal scenery ranging from secluded crystalline coves to rocky peninsula belvederes overlooking the azures. Beyond her magnetic seaside appeal, get to know her and Mallorca will reveal a myriad of inland treasures presented by passionate locals keen to share their cultural history and appreciation for the island’s mostly organic regional delicacies. In between postcard-worthy beachfront adventures, enjoy a road trip (or cycle!) through the winding roads of the mighty Tramuntana Mountains to discover centuries-old hillside villages flecked with almond groves and pines, as well as subterranean lakes and Gothic castles. A relatively new find among the gay community, Mallorca is a fabulous choice, hosting numerous LGBT+ celebrations throughout the year as well as enviable pool and beach parties. Read on to discover our Mallorca gay scene guide covering all the best of what to see in Mallorca. Feel like getting away? Take a trip planned just for you, and let us do all the work. Discover Trip Design Hotels Things to do Things to see Food & Drink Shopping Nightlife Trip Design The best hotels in MallorcaInside a former military fort on a peaceful cliff-side pocket of Palma bay is the dramatically distinct Cap Rocat. More heritage site than hotel, cross a draw bridge on arrival and get lost in the building’s series of bunkers and trenches before reaching your pared-down boutique suite. Non guests can also make a day trip here, to explore the fort’s grounds, make use of the cliff-edge infinity pool and choose between two on-site restaurants offering organic locally sourced menus with home-grown veggies. Mother Nature takes centre stage at Pleta de Mar; a sublime five-star luxury hotel offering sumptuous villas nestled in the seaside resort of Canyamel. Surrounded by nature with sea views, all suites are elegant and spacious, the superior Grand Suite, however, earns its moniker by offering a vast (90 metre-squared) opulent space complete with private outdoor pool and mini forest. The hotel’s restaurant Asador de Mar specialises in open-air grilled meat and seafood while overlooking a sparkling infinity pool with Balinese sunbeds designed for optimum relaxation. Pleta de MarIn the thick of buzzy capital Palma, on store-lined Avenida Jaume III, is the subtly modern Nakar Hotel dating back to 1965. It’s minimalist rooms come accented with earthy strokes while its high-tech amenities add cutting-edge flair. For a relaxed vibe and awe-inspiring views, dine at the on-site Miquel Calent’s CUIT Bar & Restaurant, a chic spot for guests to indulge in local cuisine while taking in first-class views of Mallorca points of interest. Alternatively, get a massage at the subterranean Nakar spa or swim in the rooftop pool while jamming to a DJ-spun soundtrack. For a true respite from hectic city life near to some of Mallorca’s best vineyards, make a reservation at Sa Cabana Hotel Rural & Spa, a 16th century farmhouse turned plush boutique beauty situated in Alcudia’s hilly countryside. Flanked by the jaw-dropping Tramuntana mountain range, the picture-perfect grounds are home to centuries-old trees, a vineyard and an ancient water tank re-conceptualized into a unique, circular swimming pool with sleek wood-plank deck.
