Lifestyle

Residents living in Mallorca are familiar with a healthy lifestyle rooted in Mediterranean cooking, outdoor sports such as hiking and cycling as well as socialising at local Mallorca events. The sunny Mallorca weather contributes to a high quality of life, with many people spending their weekends exploring the Serra de Tramuntana, sailing near the Cuevas del Drach and cycling to Cap de Formentor. The Mallorcan lifestyle also includes discovering Mallorca’s secret beaches, learning Spanish, shopping at food markets and supporting the local Mallorcan community. People from all over the world move to Mallorca for different reasons, but everyone can agree that the Spanish weather, cooking and culture are second to none.
