ce cream is a good idea all year round, especially during hot summer days. From small chains to independent shops, there is no doubt that Mallorca is home to hundreds of gelaterias and ice cream shops. Many boast secret ingredients and signature flavours, some are seasonal while others stay open for most of the year. Truth be told, nothing pairs quite as well as a warm and sunny day and a frozen and refreshing ice cream, so here is our list of some of the best ice cream shops on the island.

Opened in 2008, IO Gelats is a small storefront gelateria in Port de Soller that prides itself on its artisanal approach, making everything in-house with locally sourced, organic ingredients. Think almond and orange blossom, mango with a splash of cava, and local favourite Crema de Tramuntana. Each flavour is a love letter to Mallorca, capturing the essence of the island in each delightful spoonful.

Located in an old townhouse just off the main plaza in Soller, Mr. McCoy's Island Ices has a slightly retro vibe and is all about artisanal production. Flavours change regularly depending on the seasonal ingredients available. Prices may run a touch higher than elsewhere, but the results are worth the treat. Spaces are available upstairs to sit and enjoy your ice cream or have a glass of wine. They also have an excellent selection of natural wines for sale, particularly labels that are hard to find elsewhere on the island.

A small chain with a big personality, La Boutique del Gelato brings Italian flair to the streets of Palma. It's all about tradition here, with time-tested recipes passed down through generations. A dizzying array of flavours greets customers, from the bold Ferrero Rocher to the indulgent Tiramisu. What sets them apart is their creamy texture and attention to detail. Each scoop is a microcosm of creamy perfection, promising a taste of la dolce vita with every bite. It’s one of the most popular places on the promenade thanks to its scrumptious and high-quality ice cream.

With more than four decades of experience, Helados Garrido really knows what it’s doing when it comes to ice cream. You can find shops between the vibrant ports of Pollensa and Alcudia. Their most popular establishment is on the Paseo Maritimo in the Port de Alcudia, where you can find the most mouth-watering ice cream and milkshakes. They have a wide selection of flavours, and the best part is that all of them are 100% natural and homemade.

There are six Iceberg Gelateria stores in Mallorca, so no matter where on the island you are, you should be able to find one close to you. They have an incredible menu with sixty different flavours, ranging from the classics you know to some highly innovative ones. They have gluten-free and vegan options and are known for their award-winning recipes made from fresh and natural products. They recently won an award for “Best Gelato in the World” thanks to their orange sorbet with mint and cardamom. We highly recommend you see what all the fuss is about!

Opened in 1929, Gelats Valls was the first-ever artisan ice cream shop in Pollenca. Their handmade ice cream is produced using only the freshest products. Their newest location in Playa de Muro is just a stone's throw away from one of the top beaches on the island. They still uphold their philosophy of respecting tradition and using only top-quality ingredients, and now they have a beautiful terrace where you can sit and enjoy the view while savouring your gelato.

Can Miquel has long been a popular spot among the locals, and they have been serving deliciousness since 1979. This family-run establishment offers over 90 different ice cream flavours, so you will be spoiled for choice. Around 20 of those are different flavours of chocolate. Their portion sizes are generous, and their Jamaican Chocolate is a real hit. Can Miquel Gelateria has the magic touch - some may even call it the perfect Gelato.
