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.
Take the vintage, wood-panelled train from Palma to the beautiful town of Sóller, nuzzled deep in the heart of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, and fringed by citrus and olive orchards. At the train station you'll find a twinset of museums showcasing works by Picasso and Miró.
There's no finer season than spring to see Mallorca at its fragrant, blooming best. One of the most staggering hikes on the island begins at La Vitoria hermitage, near Alcúdia, and leads up to lookouts that perch like birds nests above the glittering blue Med. Bring water, sturdy shoes and a head for heights.
