2008 News Archive - Holidays - Majorca's popularity soaring
18 12 2006
Majorca remains a firm favourite with British holidaymakers and many of these tourists are now returning to the island to purchase properties, experts report.
Package holidays to Majorca were launched in 1952 and Spain's largest island has been one of Europe's most desirable tourist destinations ever since.
Popular resorts include Cala d'Or, which is packed full of sensational sandy beaches, and Puerto Pollensa, which is famed for its sumptuous fish restaurants, quaint streets and bustling port.
Speaking to CityWire, Nick Freeston from Chesterton International suggested that the island is proving similarly popular with property investors and those buying holiday homes in the sun.
"Mallorca also has smaller developments compared to the mainland giving a more exclusive feel. There are strict building guidelines as to what you can build, meaning a reduction of large scale developments. There is easy access from the island's major airport and the island is a good golfing destination as well as having beautiful coastal areas, great beaches, food and culture," he said.
Other favourite destinations on this beautiful island include the Alcudia Hidropark, which is always popular with families thanks to its impressive waterslides and endless amusements.
