Water Source


In Mallorca, amongst many other benefits, we also have privileged access to sources of pure mountain water.

Clearly, one needs a well or a spring to tap into the resources, but I know of at least three locations where one can bottle the purest spring water, right here on this island. The locals, of course, have a knowledge of these locations ingrained into them from an early age. Mallorcans know from a life-long experience whether the water they fetch from the mountains is any good or not.

Should you want to sample the tastes for yourself, simply visit the Monasterio de Lluc near Escorca, or the Ermita de Betlèm near Artà, or go to the main road connecting Valldemossa and Deià. Bring plenty of empty water bottles.

The municipal water supply on the island is also better than that in Birmingham, I dare say, or Bremen, Bergen or Bologna, unless one lives in Palma de Mallorca, where the water is said to be too saline for human consumption unless boiled.

  1. Just to say that I enjoy your blog. I visit Mallorca every winter for a couple of weeks and am a keen photographer. I like the gentle little insights you give to life on the island.

  2. So interesting to read this post.

    In the middle of the square in Soller town there is a fountain that constantly provides water for the visitors.
