Playa de Muro, in the north of Mallorca, has been making plenty of headlines this year and for all the right reasons.

According to the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards 2022, Playa de Muro, near Alcudia, has been voted the third Best Beach in Europe.

And now it is one of the most Instagrammable beaches in Europe. A study from The Thinking Traveller claims it has figured out which European beaches are the most Instagrammable.

The report essentially totted up the number of Instagram posts which include a hashtag of each beach, thereby, in theory, revealing which beaches are best suited for showing off.
