A Mallorca elopement is such a beautiful choice for couples seeking a romantic beach destination in Europe where you can connect with nature, enjoy amazing cuisine, and say your vows in a way that’s meaningful for you. This Mediterranean island is part of Spain’s Balearics and is known for its rugged natural beauty, pristine beaches, and limestone caves, but there are also plenty of luxury wedding venues where you can celebrate your love in style. 

You can plan a true elopement, just the two of you, or host an intimate wedding, inviting only your closest friends and family to spend a few days with you in this stunning destination. There is no right or wrong way to plan a micro wedding in Mallorca, so please do what feels right to you. 

If you’re dreaming of an intimate ceremony on a beautiful island paradise, here’s how to plan an intimate elopement in Mallorca that will have meaning to you and your relationship. 

Before You Elope In Mallorca, Find A Location That Has Meaning To You

The island is larger than you might think, so when planning your elopement, decide on which area would best suit your style. Many of the best places to elope in Mallorca are on the water, so you might love a chic beachfront wedding at sunset, either just the two of you or with a small group of loved ones at one of Mallorca’s luxury beach clubs or resorts. 

Or, if you love the vibrant energy of the city, you could elope in Palma, the island’s capital, delighting with Michelin-starred restaurants, historic cathedrals and palaces, and charming cobblestoned streets with boutique shops, cafes, and wine bars. 

From high-end luxury resorts to low-key bohemian beach vibes, you can do it all on Mallorca. 

When Planning An Intimate Mallorca Elopement For Two, Include A Romantic Day On The Water

Why do people elope in Mallorca? For many, it’s because they’re drawn to the island’s irresistible blue beaches. With white sand, soft waves, and crystal clear waters, enjoying the oceans and beaches should be part of any elopement in Mallorca!

Some of the most beautiful beaches include Playa de Formentor and Playa de Cala Pi, but a truly unique way to enjoy Mallorca is by charting a yacht for the day. That way, you can spend quality time as a couple, taking in the views, sipping champagne, or exploring some of the area’s dramatic sea caves and coastlines.

Include Local Cuisine & Wine In Your Celebrations

Mallorca is famous for its delicious cuisine (and fine wines!), so immerse yourself in the local culture by including local dishes and drinks in your elopement celebration. 

There are many local restaurants that you can hire out for private use, a beautiful way to connect with your wedding guests. Or, stop by one of Palma’s gourmet food markets and pick up meats, cheeses, and sweets that you can enjoy on a secluded beach – it would make for such a romantic picnic! 

With African, Moorish, and Catalan influences, the cuisine in Mallorca is diverse, featuring fresh seafood, locally sourced meats, olive oil, and sweet desserts. 

Plan An Unforgettable Experience To Thank Your Guests For Attending 

If your guests are traveling from near and far for your elopement, a special element you can add to your event would be to plan an amazing day out, dinner, or extra celebration. By planning an exclusive event for your guests, you can thank them for attending.

Plus, a destination elopement should last all weekend (or longer!), as one day is never enough. There are so many amazing things to do on the island, so plan some unique Mallorca elopement ideas just for your treasured guests. 

This could include a driver and private wine tastings at some of Mallorca’s most popular wineries, a morning sailing and visiting the Blue Caves on a catamaran, or a gourmet tapas and wine tour in Palma.

A destination elopement is such a great way to spend quality time with your loved ones, while also getting married in a spectacular location, so spend some time adding extra elements to your elopement to make it special to you. 

Include tips about the area, who it’s ideal for, picking a location/venue, how to make a weekend/vacation out of it, activities to do, etc!
