This Travel Writer’s Guide To Mallorca focuses on a guide to travel with the specific needs of a writer in mind. A traveling writer needs to know the history, where to find inspiration, a great place to write, and a great place to lay their head. That way all your energy can funnel into creating!


Mediterranean islands such as Mallorca, have always attracted invaders and settlers that shape the history of the land. In Mallorca, you can still see pre-historic remains from settlements including churches and fortresses.

Mallorca has also attracted writers such as French writer George Sands who wrote “A Winter In Mallorca”, and the English poet and novelist Robert Graves. Graves moved to the island in 1929 and said that he found everything that he wanted as a writer. “Sun, sea, mountains, spring water, shady trees, no politics, and a few civilized luxuries such as electric light and a bus service to Palma, the capital.”

Graves lived in Deia, a mountain village where he was inspired by the peaceful atmosphere of the island. Due to his influence, many writers followed in his footsteps.


With its relaxed vibe and history, the island itself will give you plenty of inspiration. If that doesn’t work then head over to the bars for some people watching or check out some of these literary tours and landmarks:

1. La Casa De Robert Graves

The house Graves lived out the last of his days is now a small museum dedicated to the writer, and he is buried in the local churchyard.

Travel Tips

Where to stay: If you prefer to stay within the city and are not as interested in the beach then you would enjoy staying in the city of Palma.

However, if you are more inclined to spend your time at the beach then it would be better to stay outside of Palma. Take note that some hotels are on the water near Palma but are on a pier and not a beach.

For those looking for a place to stay that is on the beach, we highly recommend Innside Cala Blanca. It is one of the more beautiful resorts on the island but with plenty of places to relax and write.

Getting around: As Mallorca is an island, it is not as easy to get around as the major cities in Spain. You might want to rent a car if you are outside of Palma and plan to do a lot of traveling around. Otherwise, it’s best to choose a location that is central to where you would like to go and just walk from there. However, there are cab services like Cabify on the island. You can also ask your hotel to set up a cab service for you.

When to go: The best time to go to Mallorca is in the shoulder seasons which are April to May and September to October. The temperature is warm and there are fewer crowds than in the summer seasons.
