S`illot, Mallorca

Long walks combined with long conversations… You simply walk without knowing where you are going. You are following the path. Eventually you stop, find a place to sit, enjoy the nature and your lovely company. You feel as this is your place, you belong here. This feeling is magical and brings a lot of good emotions. Have you experienced something like this while being on holiday?

 

Small, pretty and cozy, previous fishing village, situated on the east coast, which is on the other side from Palma de Mallorca. The town is called S`illot. ​There are pedestrian ways, where you are able to walk or bike to other nearby places, such as Sa Coma, Cala Millor and Porto Cristo. The beach in S`illot is quite small, so walking to the beaches nearby is a great solution. And oh, one more thing, parking is free all around. Even arriving at 9pm in July, we found available parking spot. Well, don’t have that high of expectations for the parking spot looks. The most important thing is that you can find a place for your rented car which is nearby and completely for free! We stayed at the Universal Hotel Perla, which was located by the beach, with great service and delicious buffet breakfast.

You like night life? Well, then this town is not that great of a choice. The only night place they provide is called Crazy Monkey Bar. There wasn’t that much action when we visited that place, but the music was still fully on. The positive thing is that the whole dance floor is yours! If you are brave enough to dance alone of course, it takes courage to start something, such as dancing when no-one else is doing so. But always remember, that life is actually too short to constantly be afraid of everything, especially things you want to do. If you want to dance, but are afraid of what people will think of you, who cares, you will probably never see them again after that night anyways and they are sipping on those fancy cocktails and will probably join you after a while. So let your hair loose, put on a favourite dress and dance for as long as you wish. The dance floor is yours!

S`illot is also close to an amazing place called Cuevas del Drach. The cave situated in Porto Cristo has been known since the Middle Ages and has a maximum depth of 25 metres below the ground level. There is an underground lake situated in the cave called Lake Martel. This Cave visit ends with a short but beautiful classical concert performed by four talented musicians playing in the boat. There is completely dark in the cave, except of bulbs situated in the musicians boat. Wonderful experience! You can simply close your eyes and enjoy the magical moment. And there is a boat trip at the very end across Lake Martel!

One more thing which we did that was very fun. That was a boat ride. Two hour long boat ride through splashing water, both dark blue and crystal clear turquoise, with some amazing views of caves, cliffs and cities. I also had my Marilyn Monroe moment while on the boat, (which you can see on the second slideshow), since the wind was so strong as the boat moved. It was so much fun! Also not to mention the guy that pronounced all the places we arrived to in a very amusing way. You have to really experience it to understand. But the memories are strong which means it was amazing!

Song of the trip.

 

Much love and positivity,
