A couple visited Mallorca, living in a van in the hugely popular Spanish tourist spot. The couple, Alex and Emma, have created content for their travel YouTube channel Travel Beans where they have a community of over 165K.
They also post updates and travel information on their Instagram account @Travel_Beans.
Alex and Emma have been traveling full time since 2015.
The couple said: “In this van life video, we explore the island’s lesser-known spots.
“We’ve always thought of Mallorca as just seaside resorts, so we explore the Spanish island in search of a variety of landscapes.
“This video is a Mallorca travel guide to some of the best nature spots on the island. Our personal favorites were Sa Colabra and Boquer Valley.”

“This is definitely the highlight of the trip for me so far,” Alex said.
“There is definitely something a bit depressing about walking through resorts which are very empty and run down.
“While this one is a perfect combination of nature and urbanization.
“It feels a lot more lived in compared to the others, which are clearly there for tourists.”
Last Alex said: “I have definitely changed my mind about Mallorca. It’s not just the seaside town full of drunk English people I thought.”
“I feel like Mallorca is one of the most underrated and overrated places for Brits.”
The village is known for its beauty and Richard Branson has a luxury home in the town.
It has hosted various big names in music such as Mick Jagger and Mike Oldfield.
The couple also traveled to Sa Calobra, a small village on the northwest coast of the island.
The village is accessed by a winding road with many 270° turns, a spiral bridge, making it an exciting journey for drivers and motorcyclists.
The couple commented on the incredible roads.
Emma said: “I’m amazed who would have passed through Mallorca, it’s like an ultimate destination for a road trip.”
They described the roads as “hairpin, shaped like eight bends”.
Emma said: “If you’re in Mallorca you have to do this ride, it’s a crime not to.”
