Women Travellers

Travelling in Mallorca is largely as easy as travelling anywhere else in the Western world. However, you may still occasionally find yourself the object of staring, catcalls and unnecessary comments. Simply ignoring them is usually sufficient. Eye-to-eye contact and flirting is part of daily Spanish life and need not be offensive.

Spanish women generally have a highly developed sense of style and put considerable effort into looking their best. While topless bathing and skimpy clothes are in fashion on the island’s coastal resorts, people tend to dress more modestly in the towns and inland.
