Are you planning to go on sailing vacation with friends and family or you just want some quality “me time” in Mallorca and you pondering over the best ways to spend the time even as you enjoy rich culture, history, tradition, and of course lot of fun. Mallorca is where you want to be. The Spanish island of Mallorca was formerly occupied by the United Kingdom in the early eighteen centuries and later by France in 1782. It was formally and officially transferred to the Spanish colony in 1802 but the French and British taste remains in Mallorca.
Your Mallorca sailing vacation is incomplete without the side trip and if you are a lover of birds, Mallorca is where you should be.

Scoop Owls, Mustached Warbler, and the Black Vulture are some of such birds. With over 200 bird species, visitors are guaranteed to get a detailed sight of birds.
The mountains in the north of Mallorca and the sea cliffs of Formentor are perfect for visitors that want full glimpses of these rare birds. Other spots for good bird watching include the Boquer valley. These spots especially the valley are within walking distance and can be really fun for visitors besides the excitement that comes with seeing the birds fly. Most birdwatchers come to the island in the spring season.
