The Balearic island of Majorca is renowned for its gorgeous climate, with most travellers coming here for the sun, sea and sugar-soft sand. And the sparkling coastal resort of Playa de Muro, which has one of the longest beaches on the island at 6 kilometres, certainly ticks all those boxes and more.
But, inviting as the beach is, Playa de Muro holidays are about so much more than just reclining on a sunlounger. There’s a raft of upscale hotels, plush restaurants and classy bars. There’s also a handful of golf courses and a nature reserve within easy reach, while the boardwalk promenade that runs through the main resort is fun for people watching. That’s not forgetting the beach volleyball, historic sites within walking distance and plenty to keep the kids happy. So while you’ll certainly love lounging on the superb shoreline, holidays to Playa de Muro have more than enough to keep you entertained when you’re not working on your tan.
