Majorca Travel Information

A near perfect climate. Safe, sandy beaches where you can swim and relax, and pretty, rocky coves just waiting to be discovered. The spectacular Sierra de Tramuntana mountains and picturesque fishing villages to explore. Gothic cathedrals in cosmopolitan Palma and rural scenes of orange and olive groves. Stylish ports with fabulous shopping, excellent restaurants and lively nightlife, and golf, lots of it. That’s Majorca!

There really is something for everyone in Majorca – from families with young children to couples seeking quiet relaxation. The island is an ideal destination if you want to relax in beautiful, unspoiled countryside, and lots of fun if you prefer to play and party hard.

Magaluf, Palma, Pollensa and Cala D’Or offer lots of activities and entertainment along the coast with lots of beaches, restaurants, bars and nightlife. And off the beaten track there is much to explore, beautiful old farmhouses or fincas set in unspoiled countryside with pine trees, almond groves, citrus groves and the white-washed villages offer a glimpse of an almost untouched way of life.

Palma is a chic cosmopolitan city home to some stunning architecture including the Gothic Cathedral. Medieval Alcudia has fortified walls and ancient churches. The Monastery at Valldemossa has incredible frescoes and the Caves at Drach offer immense caverns and submerged lakes.

The mountains of the northwest are awesome and there is a terrific drive from Puerto Pollensa to Formentor offering stunning views where the craggy cliffs fall shear in the sea. The old fishing village of Port Andratx is now a yachtie haven complete with trendy restaurants and stylish hotels.

With hotels that date back to the 13th century to bang-up-to-date luxury waterfront apartments, Majorca has it all. Whatever aspect of Majorca you wish to explore, one thing’s for sure you’ll be made to feel right at home wherever you go. That’s probably why it is Britain’s favourite holiday destination.  It is a wonderful place for families - the British have been coming here for years and are made very, very welcome.
