Calas De Mallorca
Since this is my last really long summer before I go back to complete my final year of university, I decided that I am going to try enjoy myself as much possible and adventure as much as I can while still working. So with that in mind, when my boyfriend suggested a last minute holiday in the sun how could I resist?
We ended up visiting the South East of Mallorca along it's cliff tops and, honestly, the views were breath-takingly beautiful. We were surrounded by the sea and waking up to the waves crashing against the cliffs each morning was like a dream.
However, as both of us are students we didn't have a lot of money to go overboard with our spending but we managed to get a really good deal at a 3* all-inclusive hotel for 7 nights with flights, insurance and transfers all included for £490 each. Which is pretty good considering we were flying from Scotland and we only booked it about 3 weeks before travelling. Also, because we decided to go all inclusive it meant we didn't need to worry too much about saving up loads of spending money. The hotel was great for what we paid, the only thing is that it was quite family orientated so next time we would probably go for a hotel that is designed for couples getaways.
We were looking forward to a really chilled, relaxing holiday so we spent most of our time either lying by the hotel pool or lying on the beach and, occasionally, jumping in the pool or swimming in the sea to cool down. The hotel was only a 20 minute walk away from the beach and the walk to the beach was along the cliff tops so you got a great view of the sea.
From the beach you could board a glass bottom catamaran and go on a tour to all the different ports along the South East of Mallorca as well as the opportunity to swim in the sea and see all of Mallorca's coves along the way. The whole trip took 4 hours but it was so worth it! The views were amazing — I loved how the coves looked against the sea. The water was unbelievably clear and when we stopped at the swimming spot Ross decided he would go take a dip (I'm not a great swimmer and I tend to panic when I can't touch the floor so decided it was probably not a good idea for me to go in.)
The holiday was a great few days of some much needed relaxing and my skin was looking a lot better thanks to some much needed vitamin D. I would definitely go back to Mallorca but next time to a different area to see what else it has to offer and we absolutely have to explore more of the area we are in next time instead of just lazing about all day!
