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.
Palma kick starts the year with a mammoth party at the Fiesta Sant Sebastia (19-20 January 2017) in honour of its patron saint. Expect bonfires, parades, feasting, live music, fireworks and much merrymaking.
Though temperatures are cooler for exploring, the sun still often shines and Mallorca is at its greenest in winter. A trip on the vintage train from Palma to Soller takes you through glorious countryside and mountains where orange and almond trees are in bloom.
