Stand free with the camper

Since there are basically no official campsites in Mallorca, you will be free-standing, so to speak. That means you look for a parking lot / campsite (gladly from our map) to spend the night, this is officially tolerated. However, if you do not abide by the given rules, this will unfortunately not last forever. Therefore, it is important for everyone to treat nature on Mallorca and its inhabitants respectfully. Only in this way can we preserve camping in Mallorca.

Camping behavior 

You are generally not allowed to put out a camping table and chairs when you are on the campsites/parking lots. However, the Mallorcans love picnics, so it is of course allowed to take your table and chair to the beach or spread out on official picnic areas. 

Cooking and eating

Of course, you can also have your meal in front of the camper and sit outside. It just must not look like a permanent camping. Here you will quickly develop a feeling because of the large camper community. A small insider tip from us: Use the inexpensive, typical small Mallorcan bars to eat there a pamboli or variados. 


Because our campers are equipped with a complete bathroom, you can easily take a shower in the camper. In very isolated places you can of course also use the outdoor shower, which is especially helpful to rinse off the salt water from the day. But please make sure that you do this unobserved and do not use any shampoos for the outdoor shower. Of course, you can also use our biodegradable shampoos outside. 


You have an environmentally friendly camping toilet in the camper. Our dry separation toilet was designed especially for us and will be explained to you in detail when renting. 

Nature reserves and private grounds

You can drive through nature reserves on the official roads. But neither camping nor parking is allowed here. Mallorcans love and protect their private property. Please be respectful and do not stay on private property without permission. 


This is strictly forbidden due to the high risk of forest fires, as in many other Mediterranean countries. However, there are a lot of picnic areas where you can use a public barbecue. This is especially nice in the off-season, as there are often less people here and camping is also officially allowed at some of these places. Perfect for a cozy evening. 

Waste disposal 

A topic that is also very close to our hearts is waste disposal. Especially on an island this has to be considered separately. We assume that all our tenants are as respectful of the environment and nature as we are. Therefore, please do not leave garbage anywhere and do not dispose of it improperly. Also help the Mallorcans to keep the island beautiful and take the garbage from the predecessor and do good for the environment and nature. 
Mallorca now has an incredibly large camper community. Even the spanish themselves come a lot from the mainland to the island to enjoy the nature. You will probably also quickly get into conversation with locals and get many more tips, but even if not, we are always contact and help you to an unforgettable camping experience on Mallorca.
