Our top 5 local detox weapons worth a day trip.
A visit to the valley of oranges
Detoxification in the morning with warm lemon water is one of the simplest tips to noticeably improve one's health. Vitamin C fruits are healthy and alkalizing, so they counteract the over-acidification of the body and should be an integral part of any detox. Lemons in abundance can be found everywhere in Mallorca, they are close enough to touch during an informative tour of the Ecofinca Ecovinyassa in Soller, in the middle of the Orange Valley. The orange valley stretches from Soller via Biniaraix to Fornalutx. By the way, Fornalutx is one of the most beautiful villages in Spain and a short walk along the old watercourse, in the middle of orange and olive groves, is doable at any age. Citrus trees bloom and bear fruit all year round. The vitamin C bombs are especially delicious in summer, when you can simply drink the sweet fruit diluted with water. Orange eating season is from November to February, in summer the fruits are preferred for juicing.
How to get there?
Conveniently, you can go by rental car through the tunnel (which is free since the beginning of 2018) directly to Soller. More beautiful is the arrival by Soller train, an old Siemens railroad that connects the provincial capital with the mountain village. The train stops on your way towards the Tramuntana mountains in Bunyola, before it goes through several tunnels and finally in serpentines downhill into the quaint station in Soller. The section from Bunyola to Soller is particularly scenic. Simply park your rental car at the train station in Bunyola and board the train there; it will take you to the Orange Valley in about 40 minutes.
What to see?
The Ecofinca Ecovinyassa is located on the outskirts of Soller in the direction of Fornalutx, the way is signposted from Soller. From November to February you can learn everything about the different citrus fruits, how they detoxify, what they do for the body and especially how delicious they are. Poison is not sprayed on the fruit and so the obligatory freshly squeezed orange juice in Soller is even healthier, a dream for the intestines and especially for the palate! Saturday is market day in Soller. Stock up on fresh food!
Detoxify the body with exercise
A hike from Ecovinyassa via Biniaraix to Fornalutx not only offers spectacular views of Mallorca's highest mountain, Puig Mallorca, but also brings you close to nature and, by the way, exercise supports detoxification. You will walk on comfortable paths through orange and olive groves. Reward yourself at the end of your tour in the marketplace of Fornalutx with a real Pan Amb Oli, a Mallorcan bread with tomatoes, olive oil, cheese and optional ham. Nothing to purge, but delicious! The port of Soller, Puerto de Soller, is accessible by a small streetcar. The ride is fun and takes you to the crystal clear waters with numerous, excellent restaurants along the marina. Excursion boats leave here for the spectacular bay of Sa Calobra - always worth a swim stop!
Our insider tip: Have fresh oranges, lemons and other foods shipped home fresh from Mallorca. The German company Fet a Soller conveniently supplies Mallorca fans - even the delicious, all-natural ice cream comes fresh to Central Europe. A detox cure that reminds you of your last vacation!

Bathing in the Pirate Bay near San Telmo
Healing clays and healing mud have a wide range of effects, among others they are strongly detoxifying and help the body to eliminate toxins. They are an important part of any detoxification. However, what in northern latitudes is done indoors as part of a detoxification cure, you can easily experience for yourself in the great outdoors on Mallorca: a detoxification cure on the beach. On the island you can find some hidden coves where you can perform your own mud ritual, whether you want to take care of your skin, detoxify your body or just try something new. Not only does the mud help with detoxification and purification, but it also makes your skin soft to the touch and fun is guaranteed.
Our insider tip for your own mud cure
Near San Telmo, in the extreme southwest of the island, is the small pirate cove Cala En Basset, which can only be reached on foot. Those who know the cove come to smear themselves with the healing mud, let it dry and rinse off in the crystal clear waters. The bay is a real insider tip and not overcrowded. A hiking trail leads through a shady forest, starting at the dive center in San Telmo. Wooden signs point the way to the "Torre", at whose feet the bay lies. The descent into the stony bay is somewhat challenging, but quite doable for anyone. Once on the rocky beach, mix some sea water with the soil of the rocks and apply the mud to your body. Once the mud has dried, simply step into the crystal-clear water, rinse off the remains and let it dry in the warm sun. Purification can be so beautiful!
A day trip to the south of the island
For thousands of years, baths have served people not only to cleanse their bodies, but also to stimulate the liver, intestines, kidneys & co. to eliminate harmful toxins. Salt plays an important role because it increases metabolic processes in the body, helping to purify and detoxify the body. Sea salt is present practically everywhere on Mallorca. Just taking a dip in the sea is detox for body and soul. If you want to combine a relaxing day at the beach with something worth seeing, visit the salt works in Ses Salines, in the south of Mallorca. The Salines de Llevant are considered the oldest salt works on the island and have been producing salt since the 4th century BC. In spring, seawater is poured into the basin, where the process of evaporation begins. From August, they harvest the salt, which is washed and milled or pressed for sale. The high-quality salt is too good for detoxification in bath water. It refines the upscale cuisine and fits with herbs added to rustic dishes.
What can you do in the south of Mallorca? The large salt mountains of the salt flats can be seen from far away. They are a photo motif and nature reserve at the same time. In February and March, it is not uncommon to see flamingos strutting through the shallow waters of the salt flats, elegantly sticking their necks into the water. Don't forget your bathing suit! In the south is the most beautiful beach of Mallorca, Es Trenc. The fine sandy beach with dunes and little development reminds with its turquoise water of Caribbean islands and stands up to comparison! A bath in the sea water does your skin good and is probably the most beautiful detoxification cure in the world! A trip to the offshore archipelago of Cabrera is also worthwhile. The boats leave Colonia Sant Jordi several times a day and on the way back they head for the so-called "Blue Grotto", a cave with deep blue water that invites you to jump into the unknown water. On Cabrera itself you will find a beautiful sandy beach, a small harbor with bar and a former fortress with museum.
A stroll through the weekly markets
Mediterranean cuisine is rich in vegetables and healthy eating is not a burden in Mallorca, but a true pleasure. Long before trends such as purification and detoxification appeared in Central Europe, it was natural for Mallorcans to give their bodies only the best. Not because you want to detoxify it or flush out slags, but simply for the pure pleasure of fresh food. A detoxification cure at a high culinary level!
Tumbet-vegetarian local specialty
Probably the most famous local veggie specialty is called Tumbet and is a kind of vegetable casserole. It contains fresh tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, eggplant, potatoes, garlic and herbs, which detoxify the body. In Mallorca it is still a tradition to buy fresh vegetables in season at the weekly markets. And so a tumbet tastes especially good in early summer, when the tomatoes are really ripe and the herbs are particularly tasty.
Weekly markets - The source of healthy food
Visit the weekly markets around the hotel, on Tuesdays in Calvia and Wednesdays in Andratx. The stalls usually open around 9am and are dismantled from 1pm. In addition to pots, shoes and underwear, you can find everything you need to purge your body at the weekly markets: the best fresh fruits and vegetables of the season.
Tired and hungry from market day? Most restaurants around the marketplaces offer a cheap and good lunch menu with a view of the colorful hustle and bustle. The Sunday market in Santanyi is also worth a trip, because here culinary, art and craft combine. In the small town in the southeast of the island, colorful stalls line up around the old church on Wednesdays and Sundays, numerous studios are open in the alleys and the townscape alone with its typical sandstone facades is worth a visit.
"Poc a poc" (piece by piece) is a philosophy of life on Mallorca and, figuratively speaking, an important part of any detox cure. Everything that Mallorcans do, they do consciously and with pleasure. Consciously take time for a good meal, pay attention to your diet, chew slowly, taste the fresh ingredients and detoxify your body quite incidentally. Because detoxing in Mallorca does not mean fasting and deprivation, but feeling good and living consciously. Another attitude to life of the islanders, which supports the natural purification: Relax in nature and avoid stress as often as possible. Poc a poc to a healthy body!
