Majorca – the king of the Balearics at a glance
Great for family time, romantic escapades or clubbing – there are a million and one reasons why so many people go on holiday to Majorca
The biggest of the Balearics, Majorca has long been a favourite with the world’s travel pack. It’s got extremely good looks on its side, after all. We’re talking tiny inlets, sweeping bays and sandy coves, all lapped by turquoise waters. And away from the coast, it’s a case of sweet-smelling pine forests, hidden hamlets and jagged mountain peaks.
SANDY BEACHES in Majorca
Wherever you go in Majorca, the beaches deliver in spades. You always get plenty of sunbathing space in Palma Nova, with three beaches running the length of the horseshoe-shaped bay. Magaluf’s got its own kilometre-long ribbon of Blue Flagaccredited sand, and in Portals Nous, you can flake out on a sun-kissed strip that’s backed by tapas bars and cocktail hangouts.
LIVELY NIGHTLIFE in Majorca
Things get lively over on the island’s west coast, with the peppy trio of Palma, Palma Nova and Magaluf leading the way with their neon-lit bars and bass-pumping clubs. Majorca’s boutique-brimming, tapas-loving capital city draws a cosmopolitan cocktail crowd, too.
