Majorca

Beaches, scenery and activities make Majorca an ideal getaway for everyone

With its diversity of culture, history and terrain, it’s no surprise that the sheer beauty of Majorca captivates everyone who visits; from the Tramuntana mountains range in the north, across a vast central plain towards the rolling hills of the Levante in the east. Majorca offers a succession of sandy beaches, beautiful coves and enchanting villages along with rugged mountains.

The capital city of Majorca with its grand cathedral, wonderful tapas restaurants and wide range of shops and pretty harbour makes a great location for a city break. The popular tourist area of Cala d'Or on the East coast is full of character, with marinas, former fishing harbours and whitewashed buildings plus an abundance of great restaurants and excellent hotels.

Alcudia and Puerto Pollensa are also brimming with beaches, shops and restaurants and, for those seeking a more vibrant holiday with plenty of nightlife, there's Palma, Palma Nova and Magaluf.

Climate Information

The Balearics enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate, which means long, balmy summers from May through to the end of October with mild winters and the early arrival of spring.


Moments to Remember

The Carthusian monastery in Valldemossa is second only in greatness to Palma’s spectacular cathedral. Take a trip to Deia or take a journey through the mountains on the narrow gauge railway running between Palma and Soller.

Palma

Palma is the stylish capital city of Majorca - well worth a visit to see the cathedral and perhaps take a stroll in the Medieval quarter which is full of antique shops. The waterfront has an abundance of restaurants serving fantastic food.

Marineland

A great family attraction, Marineland near Palma Nova is one of Spain's largest animal and aqua parks. With dolphin shows, huge aquariums filled with marine life, sea lions and penguins plus sunbathing areas and a splash park, it all makes for a fun day out.
