Majorca, Balearic Islands, Spain


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 luxury 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 luxury hotels. Take to the water and enjoy a spot of snorkelling, windsurfing or kayaking or take a scenic boat tour before returning to dry land and feasting on fabulous fresh sea food – simply perfect!

Alcudia has so much to offer with a Blue Flag beach, lots of shops and restaurants, bustling markets and a charming old town. For a fun-filled day, head to the nearby Hidropark which boasts a wide variety of waterslides and attractions.

Puerto Pollensa is one of the quieter resorts and is good for both couples and families. There’s a lovely Blue Flag beach, a weekly market and plenty of eateries where you can relax over a leisurely meal of fresh local food.

Those seeking a more vibrant holiday with plenty of nightlife should choose Palma, Palma Nova or Magaluf.

There are lots of other resorts you can stay in too including Ca’n Picafort, Cala Bona, Cala Millor, Calas De Mallorca, Sa Coma and Santa Ponsa. Please ask us for more details.

Leisure & Activities

Our Sightseeing Recommendations
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 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.

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.
