Fons de Mar Beach Bar and Restaurant

Happy Wednesday, my dear readers. I hope your week is going great so far! Summer is in full swing here on the island and we're enjoying it to the fullest... or as much as our jobs allow us, haha. Last week my boyfriend and I went for lunch by the turquoise sea. Mario, the lovely owner of Fons de Mar, invited us to spend a relaxed afternoon at his hip beach restaurant/bar or 'chiringuito' in Playa de Muro. So last Wednesday we enjoyed some delicious cocktails and great food right on the beach.

About Fons de Mar

The beach restaurant and bar Fons de Mar is located in Playa de Muro right by the sea. You lunch or dine with your feet in the sand while watching people swim and listening to the sounds of the ocean. They also have live music on some evenings, perfect to enjoy a sundowner by the sea. Fons de Mar offers all kinds of tasty dishes from typical Spanish tapas to pizza, burgers and, not to forget, their authentic Mexican food! My boyfriend and I decided to try their nachos, shrimp and veggie fajitas and tacos with pulled pork. We were surely not disappointed, everything was absolutely delicious! The food was accompanied by two refreshing cocktails. I chose a mango ginger mojito while Miguel enjoyed a strawberry caipiroska, both very yummy. 

After indulging in all these delicacies we laid down on one of many comfy sunbeds you find at the beach bar. Enjoying some shade, a light sea breeze and an ice cold frappuccino for dessert we completely relaxed. On days like this I'm especially thankful for living in Mallorca. Mini escapes like these make me feel like I'm on vacation myself. I hope you're all having a great summer, no matter where you are right now, and that you also find some time to escape, disconnect and simply enjoy life. Oh, and if you spend your vacation in Mallorca, don't forget to stop by Fons de Mar :-)

Cala Pi - One of Mallorca's most beautiful Coves

Hello there, everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your summer to the fullest. I simply adore this season, especially because I live on this beautiful island called Mallorca. Simple things like being able to go for a swim every day, having a beach picnic with friends or some yummy ice cream after work make me feel so alive and as if I'm on vacation all the time. I'm very much looking forward to August too because my little sister and mommy are coming to visit. Can't wait to take them to the beach and cook together, have cocktails on our terrace and chat and laugh. This is summer for me!

Cala Pi in Llucmajor

Today you get to discover a new place with me, one of my new favorite spots on the island, the stunning Cala Pi. This charming cove is located near Llucmajor, about a 20 minute drive from Palma. A few days ago my friends Melli, Alina and I went to explore this lovely place and we immediately fell in love with Cala Pi. It looks like a perfect Mediterranean postcard. Hidden between impressive rocks and lush greenery this cove wows with turquoise, crystal clear water and amazing coastal views. Before heading down to the beach you should walk around a bit and soak in the natural beauty of this place and also take some photos. There is a quite Instagram-famous viewpoint from where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the cove. Even though we came here at the beginning of July the beach was fortunately not crowded at all. There is lots of space and also some shade from surrounding pine trees. I'm so happy they didn't exploit this place or build any huge hotels around the cove. It's all quiet, natural and simply beautiful. So whenever you come to Mallorca, make sure to stop by this cove. It's totally worth a visit, even if it's just for a beautiful photo, haha.

Once in this area, you should also stop at the lighthouse of Cap Blanc,  which you can see in the last three photos. It's only a five-minute drive away from Cala Pi and I couldn't recommend this visit enough! It's a stunning, wild place with no one around. Huge impressive rocks plunge into the Mediterranean Sea here. Far reaching views and uninhabited, dry land. This magical place really makes you feel tiny. As if you've reached the end of the world. I will definitely come back here someday to enjoy the sunset with my boyfriend or friends!

Randemar Restaurant in Port de Sóller

Happy Thursday, my dear readers! Hope you're all having a great sunny week so far wherever you are. Today I have a new post for you with another Mallorca tip. If you're following me here or on my social media you know how much I love sharing cool things to do on the island. Whether it be beaches, restaurants, cafés, towns or hiking routes. There's so much going on here (not only) in summer and it's impossible to check out ALL the lovely places Mallorca offers. However, today I'll tell you a bit about the beautiful Randemar Restaurant in Port de Sóller where I just recently had a photo shoot.

Randemar Restaurant

Randemar counts with a top location right by the sea in the harbour of Port de Sóller. Stunning views are guaranteed! Watch people walk by or ships coming in and enjoy a light sea breeze while sipping a cocktail or indulging in some of their tasty dishes. The restaurant is super stylish and offers a relaxed atmosphere with nice chill out music and friendly staff who are giving their best to make every visitor happy. 

A few weeks ago I accompanied the lovely girls of Estudio Palm who took some photos for Randemar. We had such a fun morning getting dressed up by Cristina Egurrola, the restaurant's owner, who also happens to be a talented interior designer and excellent stylist. On a sunny Thursday morning we enjoyed some cocktails, appetizers and delicious sea food while taking some cool lifestyle pics. I hope you like the outcome! Check Randemar's Instagram and Facebook for more photos of our shooting and enjoy the rest of your week :-)

Exploring Cala Magraner

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you're all having a fantastic start of the week. I'm finally back with a new post about an exciting excursion my boyfriend and I went on a while ago. On a busy summer afternoon we decided to escape the tourist crowds and check out a new hidden place we've never been to, the beautiful Cala Magraner.

Cala Magraner in Mallorca

Cala Magraner is located in the east of Mallorca, not far from Manacor. You have to park your car on a street and walk to the cove for about half an hour which is why it's quite empty even during high season. I love hidden places like this because tourists are usually to lazy to visit them, haha. Even though it was quite hot on the day of our excursion I really enjoyed the walk to the cove. We passed a beautiful Mediterranean landscape with pine, olive and almond trees, red soil, stone walls, sheep and we even spotted two wild turtles on our way!

Once we got to the cove we were happily suprised, it was super empty. Only a few boats and some people relaxing and swimming here and there. Cala Magraner is a pebble beach with stunning crystal clear water. Before laying down to relax and have a picnic we went for a little walk to explore the coast around the cove for a bit. You can walk up on the right side of the cove to the top of the rocks from where you have a breathtaking view of both Cala Magraner and the smaller Cala Virgili that is located right next to it. On the left side of Cala Magraner we also saw many people rock climbing. It seems to be a popular spot for this kind of activity thanks to its quite even, high walls of beautiful cream-colored rocks. Cala Magraner also looks like a great spot for cliff diving or snorkeling. Unfortunately we didn't bring our snorkels that day but will definitely do so if we go back in the future.

We spent the rest of our afternoon swimming, napping and enjoying a picnic by the sea. On our way back to the car we were so lucky to watch a beautiful sunset over the endless fields. And again I thought 'how fortunate am I to live on this island and spend my days like this'...
