My daughter, late 20's, and I are thinking of going to Mallorca in September for 10 days, possibly Palma. A few beach days, but not horribly crowded beaches, historic castles/houses/ gardens to visit.
Don't want to be stuck in a small place, with limited things to see/do and don't want to hire a car.
Palma sound rather nice, lots to see, so would it be the best place to stay or is it very big and noisy? (Not interested in night life but want good restaurants)
The Soller train sounds like our thing, but are there also coach excursions or bus services to places like the Jardines de Alfabia or nature reserves?
Is La Granja worth a visit? do-able from Palma?
Which are the most attractive beaches/quietest (or is quiet not an option!?) in/near Palma and are they easy to get to?
Any advice appreciated as we have to decide soon!
