Although there are many beautiful islands in the Mediterranean Sea, few are as outstanding as Mallorca. Despite it having numerous entertainment facilities and a golden beach on every stretch of coast, Mallorca is also home to numerous historical buildings. Should you ever get bored of lying on the beach, an ideal way of exploring the island is by cheap Mallorca hire car and doing a bit of exploring.
Despite the fact that many tourists in Mallorca fail to escape the seemingly endless comfort of their hotel pool or local beach, there are numerous places of interest around the island that can be reached by cheap Mallorca hire car, the majority of which are in Palma. This includes everything from old Gothic cathedrals to castles and Arab baths.
Palma is also home to the Museu de Mallorca, which has ingeniously been transformed from a 15th century palace. The old quarter of the town is absorbing and captures the character of a classic European city with ease given its long winding streets and cobbled roads.
As it is primarily a tourist resort, Mallorca has plenty to keep you and your company entertained.
