Style & Design

With the rise of Palma being booked as a weekend city break, shopping in Mallorca has fast become one of the best places for shopping in Europe. Luxury furniture stores, boutique clothes shops, designer outlets, fancy Mediterranean restaurants and five-star hotels make shopping in Palma a shopper’s dream. Shopaholics will love Paseo del Borne, the best place for luxury shopping in Palma, well-known for its designer labels and up-market fashion brands. More designer shopping is on Jaime III, where there are big department stores and smaller independent shops in the narrow streets behind. In other shopping towns in Mallorca there are plenty of local Mallorca products for sale using Mediterranean fabrics and traditional Mallorca materials. Local produce in Mallorca is hugely sought-after with products like Mallorca ensaimadas, sobrasada, olive oil, salt, wine and almonds being the most popular.
