Majorca Holiday Offers

Majorca is truly the ‘everyman’s’ island. The largest island of the Balearics, Majorca has rustic old-town charm, barefoot-luxury sandy beaches and buzzing nightlife; just take your pick! On the northern coast you’ll find beautiful marinas, the quintessential Majorcan towns of Alcudia and Puerto Pollensa.

Head south for livelier resorts: stretches of golden sands with great amenities, watersports, shops, restaurants and bars will keep you occupied day and night. Majorca combines holiday-comforts with colourful Spanish flair and laid-back island attitude. 

Tiny inlets lead to hidden sandy coves, golden sands stretch out for miles, lapped by warm turquoise waters; if you’re looking for a beach-lover’s paradise, you’ve found it! You’re spoilt for choice with the island’s beaches, 42 of which fly the European-standard Blue Flag. For families, Majorca’s beaches are clean, with excellent amenities and nearby eateries. Whether you want to try your hand at watersports or simply lie back and top up your tan, Majorca’s beaches are a perfect place for R&R.

 

Although Majorca’s nightlife stretches beyond it, there’s one place people head for a guarantee of a great night out: Magaluf! Home to some of Europe’s biggest and best clubs, DJs and club nights Magaluf is Majorca’s party central. Palma Nova is Magaluf’s close and marginally quieter neighbour. Both boast a buzzing environment, both day and night, as well as palm-fringed sandy beaches.

 

Spend the day in Majorca’s capital, Palma, a medieval harbour town with plenty of shopping and excellent eateries to boot. Easily accessible by public transport Palma makes for a perfect long-weekend getaway or a daytrip from nearby resorts. Visitors thinking Majorca doesn’t have depths past its beachfronts are in for a nice surprise; Palma is historically-rich, with castles, palaces and cathedrals to explore. Stop by one of the weekly markets for an authentic buzz of Spanish life where you can pick up crafts, produce, flowers and even livestock! 

While you’ll find restaurants of international cuisine on your doorstep, don’t leave Majorca without trying arroz brut. The Majorcan version of paella, brut rice uses chicken and pork, rather than the traditional seafood, and more legumes.

 

Start the meal with one of Majorca’s famous soups- thick, delicious vegetable broths and do as the locals do and wash down the meal with fino, a dry chilled sherry; the perfect tipple to sip on a warm night as the sun sets.

 

Café culture is becoming more popular, particularly in Palma, and lunch times are best spent in a pavement-side eatery with a jug of ice-cold sangria and sharing tapas.

I have been to Majorca several times over the years and had some great family holidays. I have stayed at numerous resorts but really enjoy the North of the Island, especially Puerto Pollensa. The old town of Pollenca has to be one of the gems of Majorca so don't miss this! Alcudia has a great beach that gently slopes into the sea and the water is crystal clear.

Other resorts on the east of the Island have stayed include Calas De Mallorca which has a lovely beach and Cala D'or with its marina and also many small hidden coves. There are some lovely restaurants in Cala D'Or also!

Palma is a beautiful city which can be reached very easy from any part of the island or either local bus or a planned excursion. The Cathedral is stunning and well worth an hour spending visiting and when you visit try and pop into one of the local cafes and try the Ensemada's!
