Mallorca is not a cheap island, a fact that most if not all tourist destinations have in common. But, there are numerous things to do and see in this island for free! Aside from the breathtaking view that the island has to offer, rewarding hiking in their amazing trails and swimming in the hidden beaches of the South East, you can also maximize your stay here by doing the following activities for free
1. Free of Charge
Save yourself 5 or 6 Euros by getting a free map at the tourist office or from your hotel reception (which is printed with “free of charge”). It contains the map of Palma de Mallorca on one side and a map of the whole island on the other side.
