Camping in Majorca.
Camping in Majorca is a great idea. In general, a house on wheels is my little dream! So let’s bring camper enthusiasts closer to Majorca where they can stay overnight. I admit that there are not many places where you can leave carts in Majorca. As in every country, there are rules in Spain that must be followed. I buried it, read it and this is how the post was made!
I’ve always associated traveling around the world with car trips! I dream one day to buy a bus and renovate it so that it is home on wheels! Then I would travel the whole world. I also once thought about getting a driving license! Wow, riding a motorbike on such wonderful roads that lead to Deia, Valldemossa or Sa Calobra in Mallorca must be something beautiful! A dream that I hope will come true someday!
Free camping in Majorca is prohibited.
Some camping sites in Majorca are managed by IBANAT, the Institut Balear de la Natura – a Balearic nature / natural institute. Depending on the area you are going camping, you should read its regulations. In many IBANAT zones, the place must be reserved 3 months in advance, and the minimum time you need to spend there is 1 night to a maximum of 3 nights! Everything, however, depends on the place. It is also forbidden, inter alia, to play music and store animals on camping grounds.

There are many recreational zones in Majorca!
In recreation areas we can creatively spend time with family. In addition, among nature and often near the beach. These zones have tables and chairs, specially designed stoves for bonfires and trashcans. Often there is also a firewood there! It is important not to litter and respect others when going to such zones. Below are the names of recreational zones and describe the rules in the zones.

At this link you will find a map of all recreation areas in the Balearic Islands: http://www.caib.es/sites/espaisnaturalsprotegits/es/informacion_general-22471/
And under this link the rules that should be followed when visiting recreational areas (in Spanish), which I mostly translated below:
Rules to be followed in recreational areas:
-all persons should segregate and dispose of rubbish in appropriate and designated space.
-if we are talking about lighting a grill or a bonfire, then there are appropriate regulations that I describe in depth in a post about burning bonfires in Majorca, here: https://vacaymode.com/en/spain/balearic-islands/majorca/majorcan-life-guide/barbecue-on-the-beach/
-in addition, it is worth mentioning that bonfires can be lit in recreational areas without administrative permits and only in designated areas, i.e. for example in special furnaces.
-anyone can use the oven while maintaining culture. The first person to use the furnace is the one who arrived first (of course, it’s good to get along with people around!)
-in recreational areas, firewood is usually prepared, which can be shared. Here I mark again – only in designated places, i.e. in furnaces.
-tables and benches in the recreation areas are for common use. There is no such thing as booking a table by leaving your belongings there. There must be people at the table if they want to sit at it.
-toilets are for shared use and order should be left behind.
-in recreational areas you cannot play music, unless the regulations in a given zone say otherwise.
-animals cannot be brought into the recreation areas.
-the car should be left in the parking lot in a designated place
-there are spaces for disabled people in the recreation areas. When they are not busy, you can use them. As soon as people with disabilities appear, you should immediately give them seats.
-the lowest possible water consumption is required within the recreation zones.
Camping in Majorca and recreation areas in the Balearic Islands.
As you can see, while there are many recreational zones in Majorca, there are far fewer camping sites. All this is due to the fact that Majorca is one large natural zone that is protected by the government. And the government is trying to interfere as little as possible with the nature of the island. Which, unfortunately, does not translate into human behavior. Keeping clean bordering on a miracle during the summer season on the island, when the mass of tourists leaves tons of garbage behind.
