• Mallorca offers hidden treasures

    2010-08-31

    "Empty nesters" want something a little different out of vacations than many travelers. While some are looking for all-day beach parties, these couples most often are looking for somewhere quiet to spend some time together and discover a new place.

    Although the beach party set will probably feel at home on the south side of Mallorca, with luxurious resorts, restaurants and bar stretched all along the coast, "empty nesters" might want to take a trip to the north side. According to the New Zealand Herald, this part of the vast island, across the Sierra de Tramontana range of hills, is a bit quieter and more contemplative than the tourist attractions to the south.

    While empty nesters will be able to find beautiful beaches here, they'll also be treated to plenty of long walking trails that will allow them to discover the island's history. Churches, monasteries and medieval castles dot the landscape. Of these, Alaro Castle, the Lluc Monastery and St. Bartholomew's in Soller are well worth the visit.

    Hotels in the north cater to a quieter clientele as well. Travelers may want to search for one on the coast that allows them to overlook the Mediterranean, as relaxing by the water can easily be an activity within itself.
