Offering an alluring temptation of modern variety and natural beauty, Majorca holidays dazzle with charm and relaxation. The popular beachfront resorts of this Balearic Island are a short distance away from the chic capital lifestyle of Palma. Majorca remains a popular sun-soaked destination and offers something for everyone.
Beach holidays in Majorca
An irresistible beach hotspot! Blessed with sun-soaked sands, the beaches of Majorca are a paradise for relaxation and fun. Ranging from super-soft fine white sand to pebbly shorelines and tiny little coves flanked by a clear crystal sea, there is everything you could possible want on them sunbathing front including numerous watersports and cheerful beach cafés. Be mesmerized by the eight kilometres of sand at Alcudia where you’ll find great beach facilities for families and the popular Club Mac Alcudia hotel. Or, be dazzled by the powdery coves of Cala d’Or.
You could also head to Puerto Pollensa where there’s a magnificent bay. If however, you’re after somewhere to escape to, hire a car and head along the coast. There are many coastal gems and you’ll be able to unfurl your beach towel no problem. Watersports are easy to come by too on this sun-drenched island, so if you feel like something more active, why not jump on a water-ski or banana boat. If you fancy something a bit more relaxing, hop on board a glassbottomed boat sailing from the harbourfront and experience marine life beneath the sea
Lively holidays in Majorca
On the one hand Majorca stays up all night. On the other it’s an island meandering merrily along life’s slow lane. The happy hour in some of the lively resorts such as Magaluf and Alcudia never seems to end in this neon-lit party spot, which continues to draw holidaymakers in. In Puerto Pollensa and Pollensa the pace steps down a gear with cheerful waterfront restaurants forming the focal point of nights out. And, of course, an evening in the island’s capital Palma is an absolute must. Here the streets and trendy waterfront is crammed full of bars ranging from friendly traditional tapas to modern cocktail bars. Visit the island’s only casino for a touch of glamour, or for something more Spanish in flavour visit one of the cosy village bars for a drink with the locals.
Relaxing holidays in Majorca
Once the fishing harbour of Pollensa, Puerto Pollensa is great for families and couples. Fringing a mountain-backed bay, this resort revolves around a beach, waterfront and town square. Life centres on the pine-studded seafront and pedestrian ‘Pine-walk’, flanked with restaurants and pavement cafés. Wander along and you’ll come to the harbour. With its seafood restaurants and bars this is also the place to come after dusk, when the waterside fills with people enjoying relaxed nights. Shoppers will find plenty of interest too.
Puerto’s beach is perfect for sunlounging and boasts mountain vistas of the Sierra Tramuntana Mountains.
Lying on the island’s rugged east coast, Cala d’Or is one of many picture-postcard sandy coves that line this stunning shoreline. Once a fishing village, the resort enjoys a charming setting with rocky coves and sandy beaches as well as oozing an air of sophistication and stylish living. Among the many beaches on offer is Cala Gran Beach, the largest on the island. With its fine white sand beach and calm shallow waters it’s perfect for young children. All beaches here offer the chance to revel in a watersport activity or two! With a small-town atmosphere, you can easily find ways to spend your days. When you’re not browsing the shops, partcipating in one of the many watersports or sipping a café con leché and people watching, why not head to the seas on a glass-bottom boat.
