Mallorca or Majorca isn’t the cheapest destination. If I compare it to Malta, it’s much more expensive. Although, it is still possible to travel to Mallorca on a budget.

The main concern is petty theft – pickpockets and bag snatchers. Some streets are best avoided at night, when the occasional dodgy character comes out to play; if you’re alone after dark, perhaps avoid Plaça de Sant Antoni and nearby avenues, such as Avinguda de Villalonga and Avinguda d’Alexandre Rosselló.

Is Palma de Mallorca walkable?

Walking is the way to see Palma de Mallorca old town. The streets are narrow and most streets are pedestrianized. We left our car in the parking garage Paseo Maritimo that you can see on my Palma map. It’s almost below the cathedral and very easy to find.

Mallorca has a bad reputation. It is seen as a cheap holiday destination; a party island overrun by young tourists wanting to get drunk every night. But thankfully Mallorca has much more to offer than the infamous areas of Magaluf and El Arenal.
