From Valldemossa to Pollensa, fantastic ice cream treats can be found all over the island. Many of the ‘heladerias’ or ‘gelaterias’ offer more products than just ice cream. You should also try their waffles, slushies, crepes and cocktails.

You are spoilt for choice with good artisanal ice cream makers in Sóller but this is one of our favourites. Unique, fruity creations made with citrus fruits from the Sóller valley. Our favourite is taronga, made with local oranges. Furthermore, Ca’n Pau always adds new flavours such as oreo or apricot.
