The largest of Spain's Balearic Islands, Majorca boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year, along with a coast of 554 kilometres of beautiful crystal blue waters. Tempted yet?
Whether you fancy relaxing on the beach, partying all night long, trekking through the mountains, or simply soaking up some culture and fine cuisine with the family, the chances are you'll find activities for every tourist in Majorca; such is the diversity of this long established and popular holiday island.
To say Majorca is varied is an understatement, with bustling resorts, quaint mountain villages and chic fashionable towns all vying for your attention. In particular, the island's medieval capital Palma is a real gem, or if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city then Playa de Muro beach near Alcudia is well worth a visit. For another side of island life head down to the hedonists' paradise resort of Magaluf to see how the hardcore revellers do it. Whether you’re looking to relax or party there’s a place on Majorca for you.
Autumn is the month for food festivals in Mallorca, many of which home in on one thing. Esporles in the Tramuntana mountains hosts a sweet fair in October, and Campos the island's raw, tangy sausage - the sobrassada. In November, Muro celebrates pumpkins, Caimari olives and Llubi honey.
When the summer heat subsides and the crowds thin, Mallorca really comes into its own. Autumn can be a golden time to visit and is perfect for hiking or cycling on the twisting trails that weave through the Serra de Tramuntana. The limestone mountain range that buckles the northwest of the island is a Unesco World Heritage site.
