Majorca

Majorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and has lots to offer - whatever the kind of holiday you’re looking for. The island has great natural beauty, with sandy bays and coves, pine forests, soaring mountains and hidden villages, and there are also resorts to suit all ages, from young single clubbers to families and couples in search of scenery, good food and Spanish culture.

Hotels in Majorca cater for everyone too. Family hotels in Majorca offer child-friendly facilities, such as splash or toddler’s pools and kids clubs. Families, couples and groups alike will love Majorca hotels on the beach, with easy access to sweeping sands and warm water. There is a great range of accommodation styles and star ratings on the island, catering ably for guests of all ages, budgets and tastes.

Young singles or groups in search of nightlife usually flock to the west coast of Majorca, where they tend to stay in Magaluf, Palma Nova or Palma. The latter is the island’s capital, and is also popular for its upmarket, smart restaurants and chic, elegant cocktail bars.

Families tend to prefer Alcudia, Cala Bona, Ca’n Picafort and Puerto Pollensa, all of which have clean, safe beaches plus plenty of shops and restaurants that cater well for children - from little ones to teenagers. Palma is a good option for couples, along with Sa Coma, which has a romantic atmosphere imparted by its smart promenade and intimate eateries.

Apart from enjoying beach life, there’s plenty of other things to do in Majorca. Palma is a great place to shop, eat and see some magnificent architecture, including a vast gothic cathedral. A vintage wooden train runs from Palm to Soller, via olive groves and orchards where trees are heavily laden with ripe oranges and other citrus fruit. Once in Soller, there are some lovely cafes and shops too.

Inland, the beautiful village of Deia is where you can find Robert Graves’ house - and is also home to some of Majorca’s most exclusive accommodation, making it a favourite destination of celebrities in search of luxury and seclusion.

You can tour Majorca’s wineries or get active at S’Albufera nature reserve. This wetlands site covers over 4,000 acres and is very popular with walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers.

Artà makes a great day trip for those who enjoy browsing the shops for something unique, particularly on Tuesday when the market is on.
