The beaches

 

That amazing beach at the top of your holiday wish list can be easily found in Majorca. For such a small island, it’s able to boast so many incredible beaches. There is a stretch of shoreline to suit your every mood.

For those that yearn for a scenic setting then Cala Agulla with its pine tree promenades and mountainous backdrop is for you. For those wanting to bask in tranquility then head to Formentor with its beautiful views over the Bay of Pollenca. While for a livelier beach, the bay of Alcudia is the place to be.

Vibrant cities

It may be a renowned beach holiday destination but Majorca has a number of exciting cities waiting to be explored. The capital of Palma is a delightful snapshot of day-to-day life on the island and treads the line between traditional and contemporary effortlessly.

The city is characterised by its huge Gothic Cathedral but wander through the winding streets and you’ll find art studios, quaint restaurants and boutique shops, demonstrating the city’s bohemian vibe. You can also head to the north of the island and visit the historic city of Pollenca.

A real taste of Spain

While you can find pretty much every cuisine possible in Majorca, there is no better way to immerse yourself in the culture than by trying the local food. From the stylish restaurants in Palma to the beachside cafes, there are plenty of places to try traditional Majorcan grub.

Paella is king in this part of the world with each area having its own take on this classic seafood, vegetable and rice dish. Try a coca de trampo, a Majorcan-style pizza with roasted red peppers, onions and tomatoes and a deliciously sweet pasty known as ensaïmada for dessert.

Excellent family-friendly resorts

Majorca is the perfect family holiday destination. The island is home to a wealth of resorts that are designed to make you feel right at home. Alcudia has Majorca’s longest beach, Puerto Pollenca has a refined charm with plenty of things to do while Magaluf has the incredible Sol Katmandu Park, Majorca’s best theme park.

The vast majority of hotels cater for your little ones with excellent kids clubs, daily activities and menus to suit even the fussiest eaters.

Memorable nightlife

Ibiza may be the king of the club scene in the Balearics but Majorca can certainly hold its own. Magaluf welcomes some of the world’s biggest acts and DJs hitting the decks of famous clubs such as BCM Planet Dance, Boomerang, Tokio Joe’s and, one of the newest additions on the scene, BH Mallorca.

If you want to take things a lot slower then you can visit the chilled out bars of Palma or sample the beautiful ambiance of the Pine Walk promenade in Puerto Pollenca.

A true culture vulture scene

Majorca is an absolute treat for those of you that like to take in a gallery here and a museum there when on holiday. The capital has a vibrant arts scene including the Es Baluard, the contemporary art museum, while you cannot move for historical sites.

While you can explore the famous Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma, there is the charming old town of Casco Antuigo to wander around as well as Byzantine and Moorish architecture at every turn.
