Off season travel is always a bargain. Majorca is one of the most popular destinations in Spain, but the number of tourists definitely starts to slow down around October time, and this can be a great time to visit the island! Having visited Majorca during the first week of October myself, the atmosphere couldn’t be better at this time of year. I made sure to pack at least a cardigan as I thought the temperatures would drop down a little bit during the night time, or it would’ve been rainy and cold at some points during the day, but how mistaken was I!
The island is fun-filled with activities to do and – with October not being exactly a peak month to visit Majorca – sun loungers are free, the beaches are never packed, and queues are almost non existent! The island caters for all holiday makers, so we have listed down some of the best activities to do in Majorca:
Le Seu Cathedral
Palma de Majorca’s Santa Maria cathedral, which is also known as Le Seu, is an unmissable sight. If you catch a bus from the airport to city centre, you’ll be able to see it right away from a distance. Its’ interior is just as magnificent as the outside. You should definitely make some time to step inside and experience watching the sun stream through the beautiful stained glass windows.
Caves of Drach
The mysterious Caves of Drach (which translates to Dragon Caves) are one of the most popular attractions in Majorca.
The limestone caves are dark and cool, and resemble thousands of spiky parsnips hanging from the ceiling which is an spectacular view. An underground lake inside the caves called Lake Martel, is the largest underground lake in Europe of about 115m in length, and up to 12 metres in depth. Tours usually include a classical music concert and a boat trip across Lake Martel.
Check out this tour where you’ll be taken to the three main caves, Cueva Negra (Black Cave), Cueva Blanca (White Cave) and Cueva Luis Salvator.

A perfect option for a family day out, the Katmandu park is a great option to entertain the little ones. The place is jam packed with fun rides, climbing thrills, a 4D cinema, and even a splash park!
Make sure to get a VIP Passport to get an all inclusive package with unlimited rides for the whole day!
Hot Air Balloon
If you’re after great views of stunning landscapes dotted with olive groves and windmills, scenic mountains and coast lines of Majorca, there is no better way of doing this than by taking a hot air balloon trip. Spend an afternoon helping to build the balloon you’re going to fly with, and savour a coffee made on site before heading up on a 90 minute flight, 500 metres above Majorca!

A trip to Majorca is not complete without a visit to its beautiful capital, Palma. There are lots of gorgeous churches and museums to explore, but if you’re looking for places to shop around before heading back home, Palma is also a great place to indulge in some retail therapy!
