There’s more to your holiday than great beaches, and in Majorca, you’ll find a host of ways to spend your time. From boating excursions to historical attractions, you’ll be able to make a variety of memories on your trip. And while memories and photographs are always nice to bring home with you, why not fill up the extra space in your suitcase with souvenirs that will remind you of your time spent on the largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands. Everywhere you look, there is plenty of shopping in Majorca, from unusual and locally-flavored fare, to the usual tourist memorabilia
The largest concentration of shops on the island is located in the major city of Palma. There are sprawling outlet compounds, that cater specifically to visitors. Here you’ll find clothing shops, generic souvenir shops, and small electronic shops where you’ll find discounted products. Some of the discounted goods may not be permitted through your country’s customs, so you’ll want to get acquainted with the limitations of what you can and cannot bring across the border.
Out on the streets of Palma, you will encounter numerous markets where you can buy local handicrafts. These are some of the best souvenirs of a trip because they not only reflect the cultural and artistic influences of your destination, but they are also crafted by the natives. You’ll find an abundance of handmade jewelry, embroidery, artwork, and statues and kitchenware carved out of wood. Some of these items will remind you of your holiday while serving as utility or decorative centerpieces in your home.
Outside the confines of Palma, there is still a great deal of shopping in Majorca. Especially in the large resort districts and in the quaint harbor towns that tend to draw tourists, you can find beachside shops that specialize in souvenirs and beach-related items. You also won’t have to look far to find art galleries with pieces composed locally on the island. A place so rich in culture and history surely has a lot to offer on the retail front, and all tourists will want to take advantage of it.
