After a long trip, the best thing you can do is enjoy this day at the beach in Mallorca. All the beaches have sun loungers and umbrellas for a fee, but you can always go with your towel and lie down on the sand of Playa de Alcudia, Puerto Pollença or Ca'n Picafort. In the first line of any of them, you will find a great gastronomic offer, shops, bars, cafeterias, souvenirs and even perfumeries and supermarkets.

When night falls, you can enjoy the summer atmosphere of the area: romantic restaurants, cocktail bars, chill out bars, pubs with live music and travelers from all over the world happy to be in Mallorca. Quite a privilege!
Alcudia and Pollença have been awarded the Most Beautiful Town in Spain award. This means that they meet a series of strict requirements, since this distinction is not awarded to any municipality, but rather has to be thoroughly examined by the experts of the Spanish organization The Most Beautiful Town in Spain. In fact, in this list of towns awarded as the most beautiful in Spain, there are only three in the Balearic Islands.
The perfect sangria is made at the moment and is homemade -no bricks, bottles, or taps- so it will take a few minutes to serve it. Our recommendation is that you ask the waiter first if they make it themselves, this way you will avoid disappointment... Sangria is usually served in a jug, at least one liter, so if there is an option to order just one glass, doubt that it is homemade already. that its elaboration takes many ingredients and it is not profitable or feasible to serve it individually.
Although we can find several types of sangria, the classic sangria is red wine. The ingredients that sangria usually has are:
There are slight variations on what is included change the natural orange juice for orange or lemon soda. There are even those who make sangria with soda. All these formulas are valid and are very rich. The important thing is that they make it in the same establishment and not pour a liter of bottled sangria into a pretty jar...
