Posted on June 24, 2009 in Trip Ideas

Joy S, IgoUgo’s favorite nomadic numerist, shares her newfound tips and hints for Mallorca, including how to channel former frequent visitor and whodunit master Agatha Christie. Thanks to Joy’s sleuthing (OK, sunning and sightseeing), this island’s no longer a mystery.

In 2 Weeks in Majorca, Joy S writes about a busy vacation spent exploring Puerta Pollensa, Palma, Valldemossa, Deia, and the Northwest Coast. By foot, car, tram, and train (it’s riding the Palma to Soller Railway that feels “like a scene from an Agatha Christie thriller” as “the rattling, single-track train passes through almond, lemon, and orange groves”), Joy S and family cover the entire Spanish island. Drive the Northwest Coast, they say, and the route “will probably be added to your short list of best drives ever.”

If you want to cover the island a bit faster, read Joy’s Highlights of the Island and Tips and Hints and feel as though you’re there.
