Majorca is one of Spain's Balearic Islands and is a fantastic holiday destination whether you're looking for culture, beaches or a bit of both. Palma is Majorca's main airport and arriving here will give you the chance to explore the whole island. There are many cheap flights to the city of Palma available, with flight time approximately two and a half hours, making the journey managable whether you're going for a weekend or longer.
Majorca’s gorgeous beachfront veneer has made it a popular hotspot for those seeking to relax and unwind by clear, blue waters. However, the largest of the Balearics has much more to offer than just sun, sea and sand - which it has in abundance - making it a wonderful place for a holiday full of variation.
Why choose Majorca?
From tasting tapas on the cultured city streets of Palma, to basking on the peaceful sands of Alcudia’s beaches, there are plenty of reasons to head to Majorca. The city of Palma itself is a cultural and historical hotspot, with numerous monuments and museums to keep you entertained if you decide to stay in or close to the city. Resorts like Alcudia and Puerto Pollensa are perfect for families, the latter the quieter of the two. While it’s true that most people head to the Spanish isle for the fabulous weather, delightful beaches and a taste of the Mediterranean, there’s a whole island to be explored for those who are after something else. The summer months (June to September) see the best of the warm sunny weather.
Highlights of Majorca
Sun, sea and sand
The biggest draw to the island tends to be its stunning beaches and, since Majorca has a lot of coastline, there are plenty to choose from.
Cala Mayor beach is a stone’s throw away from Palma and boasts long expanses of beach and a lively promenade. Here, you can relax on the sand, then head to one of the many hotel restaurants for a lovely meal.
Alcudia beach is much quieter than its western cousin, but still lively enough to create a decent atmosphere. White sands and shallow waters make this popular with families, while the 3.4 km of beach ensures you’ll find a place to put your towel.
If you really want to escape the crowds, rent a car and drive south to the idyllic Cala Llombards. This little bay, surrounded by tall pinetrees, is famed for its incredibly clear water and is a real local beach. Snorkeling in the azure waves is highly recommended.
Shopping, culture and tapas in Palma
Spend an afternoon strolling around the island’s capital, soaking up the history and nipping in and out of the lovely boutiques. The Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma is an unmissable gothic masterpiece that has to be admired inside and out. Take the Palma sightseeing bus to see such cultural attractions as the Castell de Bellver and the Pueblo Espanol.
Trekking in Serra de Tramuntana
The Serra de Tramuntana mountain range stretches along the north-west of Majorca and offers some of the best hiking and walking on the island. Made up of rugged-looking, rocky monuments of earth, the terrain here is dramatically different from the serene coastal beauty of the beach resorts. The region is now a UNESCO heritage site and, as well as the incredible scenery, you will also find a number of lovely little villages and boutique hotels.
Sample a seafood Paella
Spain’s national dish is a real treat wherever you sample it in the country but the fact that Majorca is surrounded by the sea makes it a fantastic place to try the seafood variety.Prepared to perfection in a huge, traditional pan that bears the same name as the dish itself, delicate prawns, juicy muscles and succulent squid are gently cooked amid an explosion of spices and tastes. Finally, once the fish has absorbed the likes of saffron, thyme, paprika and much more, you are ready to taste this delicious dish. Most of the coastal resorts have numerous restaurants that provide paella and the large portion sizes it usually comes in make this the perfect dish to share with family and friends.
The surrounding area
Explore the Balearics
Ferry links to the other islands in the Balearics are common, making day trips to the closer isles quite easy to achieve. A ferry to nearby Ibiza takes around three and a half hours and boats to the other three islands take little more than this. Whereas Ibiza is most famous for its nightlife, the Old Town has a charming feel to it and the surrounding countryside is surprisingly relaxing and quiet.
