EDITION 2019

Special Traditional Shops

We take our hats off !

Do I like hats? I do! I am passionate about hats, they are beautiful and versatile. To browse around local markets, see the latest models, as well as the most traditional ones, and try them on, makes me undoubtedly look forward to taking one home. Through this accessory, which is so deeply rooted in our culture, I would like to expose the artisanal tradition that remains firmly embedded in our islands culture. We have created the hat that appears on the front page from beginning to end, working with our islands typical pattern, la nostra tela de llengües. We aim thereby to acknowledge the effort of the most emblematic businesses of Mallorca and Ibiza, which have adapted to the current trends in society and for having survived all the commercial changes of these past years. We take our hats off to them.

EDITION 2018

Enjoy our Secrets

Dear readers, before anything I would like to thank you for participating in ‘Enjoy our Secrets’ here at Mallorca Caprice. Using your votes we have been able to make an extensive list of the most unique corners of Mallorca and Ibiza, featuring in our issue this year. They are places we all appreciate and that show the Balearic Islands from their most beautiful side. Not all of them are on the list, but all those listed are.

I didn’t know all the places myself, but with my hiking shoes, my rucksack and above all my mountain walking friends, I will get to each and every one of these new corners to see the most beautiful parts of Mallorca and its sister island, Ibiza. The latter island has always been a favourite of mine thanks to its magic nights, parties, music, beautiful and exuberant people.

EDITION 2017

This is Hollywood

The quest for happiness has concerned humanity since time immemorial. Where is it to be found? A question that has no simple answer or formula. And of course, everyone has their own personal opinion.
For me, happiness is Majorca, Ibiza, Minorca…the islands. Knowing how and being able to savour that much longed-for and highly-acclaimed ‘lifestyle’. Here happiness pervades the air, sea and land. The huge and the minute. The visible and the invisible. It has to be said that our islands offer exactly what it takes to experience many moments of happiness. More than what it takes in fact. Happiness is out there; all you have to do is know how to seize it and enjoy it to the full. This is what the Mediterranean can do for you, creating a vision that teaches you how to appreciate the simple as well as the complex things of life, for complexity is formed by a wealth of elementary visions.
It comes as no surprise that many of the visitors to our islands come in search of those values. Among them we find many Hollywood stars, the theme of this latest issue of our publication.
This year’s Mallorca Caprice reveals the names of these illustrious visitors. We are celebrating our fifth anniversary with a magazine packed with leisure, gastronomy, services and glamour. Ideas that will enable you to grasp, albeit fleetingly, that much longed-for state of happiness.

EDITION 2016

Exclusive Mediterranean lifestyle

An island, a world. That’s the Balearic Islands. Little autonomous universes, surrounded by the sea. The distance between them can be done in a few hours, but you may find many difficulties in going from one to the other. This contrasts need no deep analysis from the great traveler: they can be sensed straight away on arrival. You touch the ground and that’s it. You are in a different galaxy.
That’s the reason why this year’s Mallorca Caprice edition is so special. Because for the first time we dedicate a part of the edition to Ibiza. In this way, we have the opportunity of offering a diverse product to our readers. As diverse as the Balearic Islands themselves.

EDITION 2015

Exclusive Mediterranean lifestyle

Luxury. What is luxury? There has been talk over recent years of the growth of the high-end product range. Of the promising business of quality. But do we really know what this is all about? And more importantly, are we aware of how far we can go?
A dip in the sea at sunset. A meal on a terrace overlooking the sea. Admiring the beauty of the landscape. Peace and quiet. This is luxury, too. Luxury with a capital L. The Balearic Islands, with their beaches, their natural beauty and their legendary tranquillity, broaden the concept of quality, into meanings yet to be explored. Something which gives them enormous potential in the sector of mid and highend tourism.
We shouldn’t forget that Europe is the epicentre of luxury business. It is estimated that the continent attracts 75% of the global market, which last year registered a turnover of 865 billion euros. Luxury consumers are changing, too. The Baby Boomers and Generation X, who up until now have been its users, are now being joined by those known as Millennials, born between 1984 and 1995. Lovers of the digital age and of nature. Needless to say, the Balearic Islands are ideally placed to attract this profile.

EDITION 2014

Exclusive Mediterranean lifestyle

There is no question about it: Majorca is now rapidly consolidating its position as an exclusive, top quality destination. The Barceló-Formentor concerts, with leading artists such as Zubin Mehta and now Daniel Barenboim; the fashion show in Es Baluard featuring the creations of Custo Dalmau, an international designer who presents his collections at the New York Fashion Week; the Iberostar Son Antem concept store, stocking all the top fashion names; the superb exhibitions organised by la Caixa, such as ‘Nordic Landscapes in El Prado’ featuring works by Rubens and Brueghel, etc-; works by avant-garde artists on display at the Horach and Pelaires galleries; Palma’s International Boat Show, attended by leading Spanish and international companies; as well as top name firms; and other exciting private and public initiatives have restored the island’s global image as an attractive, ambitious destination with a highly visible profile. The determination to look ahead to the future is clear; the road is slow yet steady and the outlook bright. It is a challenge we have all taken on, the result of a much-evoked and sought-after drive and determination. Welcome to the 2014 edition of the exclusive Mediterranean lifestyle.
