What Makes Our Magazine Unique?

We are the curious residents - expats and native-born. Affordable Mallorca was founded by expats with roots on the island since the mid-1960s. We have seen the Balearics and Spain go from a sleepy, siesta-land with limited choices in housing, food and travel for rock-bottom prices to skyrocketing costs and taxes that can break the bank, literally.

We've also seen the luxury market overtake the image of the authentic Mallorca. In real estate, the industry is not integrated, sophisticated or collaborative. Consequently, finding reasonably priced properties is a crap shoot, on a good day, because title ("escritura") problems are more common than not.

We share ideas on how we navigate the island. Because we live, work and play here, we know the real Mallorca. We love the glossy magazines that show the luxury life of the coastal areas. But Mallorca has millions of visitors and part-time residents who like to check in from far away places. Our online magazine has a twist - we have trending news, legal and work regulation details, guides and village profiles so that you can see how to live here and pay reasonable prices.

Affordable Mallorca is the fastest growing digital magazine based on authentic and reliable information. People trust our site and media image as a credible and accessible source. We are a bridge between the glossy print publications and online blogs. We have monthly readers made up of international residents who are curious to keep in touch.

Mallorca’s heritage, people, history, inspirations, activities and special places are unique. We invite you to explore the entire island including its vibrant villages in our #VillageProfiles - not just the hottest places or properties advertised by the businesses with the highest budgets. Our goal is to connect small businesses with people who are in need of reasonably priced services - whether buying a piece of art, finding an architect or understanding how to budget for taxes, electricity and other services to live in Spain.

More than 128 countries are represented on the island and we collaborate with local and international communities committed to respecting Mallorca’s legacy, natural environment and creativity. We are different because we attract a readership community that values reciprocity and desires be an integral part of the island we love.

We only work with dependable, local contributors for our content. We co-create with our small/medium advertisers to highlight businesses that offer true value for everyone. Our partnering with local businesses paints a realistic yet beautiful vision of all Mallorca has to offer. To learn more about digital advertising solutions visit Advertise.
