An increasing number of British holidaymakers are travelling to Majorca during the autumn and winter months, it has been claimed.
According to figure from the Palma Hoteliers Association, more and more people are taking short breaks on the island, with November hotel occupation rates increasing by 20 per cent over the last five years.
The figures suggest that as well as travelling to Majorca in search of sun and sea, holidaymakers are arriving during the winter months to visit the island's cultural attractions and restaurants, the Majorca Daily Bulletin reported.
With 550 kilometres of stunning coastline, white sandy beaches as well as excellent tourist facilities and accommodation, Majorca has long been a popular destination with British holidaymakers.
Some of the island's most popular attractions include Palma's Sa Seu cathedral, the 14th century Bellver Castle and the spectacular Caves of Drach, located in Portocristo.
