Who thinks that Mallorca is only a “party island” where sangria is downed by the buckets and British and German party songs are played every minute, is wrong – luckily. Mallorca is much more than that. The Balearic Island is a most beautiful spot in the Mediterranean sea with magnificent beaches, impressive nature and sunshine on 300 days of the year. No wonder that more and more people want to escape the gray water in the UK and migrate to the popular Spanish island. But what should you pay attention to? We collected the most important tips.
How to get the best out of your Mallorca experience: Our tips at a glance
To avoid that the dream of your existence on the sunny island doesn’t become an absolute nightmare, you should be well prepared. Several hundreds of UK citizens who lived in Mallorca have become homeless – a fact that can certainly be prevented if one already prepares for accommodation in advance. Rent or buy, that’s the question. If you have enough money, you will certainly be better off with your own house or flat. Especially in the south-west Mallorca (Link: https://vivapropertymallorca.com/en/immobilien/beautiful-sea-view-apartment-community-santa-ponsa/, at the Playa de Palma, or also near Artá https://vivapropertymallorca.com/en/immobilien/charming-renovated-village-house-in-arta-northeast-mallorca/ there are beautiful apartments and houses, which you shouldn’t miss.
Language is the alpha and omega
Anyone who wants to emigrate should definitely master at least the basic Spanish vocabulary and also bring enough starting capital – especially at the beginning there might be high costs, which can’t always be foreseen. Time and nerves should be prepared for the visits to the authorities – you will find that even (or especially) on Mallorca bureaucracy rules, and must be respected accordingly. Anyone who already has a job on the island before the arrival has good cards. If you would like to go on job hunting after your arrival on the island, you should bring with you the appropriate specialist knowledge and, if possible, have your documents available in Spanish.
