For over fifty years, holidaymakers have been flocking to the fine sands of Majorca's coast owing to the island's winning combination of ever-shining sun, clear blue sea and soft, white sand. It's only a short flight too, making it the perfect choice for families with fidgety little bottoms.
Majorca basks in 300 days of sunshine each year and in the summer months temperatures soar above 30C. The island is fringed by sweeping beaches that have been awarded the coveted Blue Flag status for their beauty, cleanliness and plentiful amenities. The sea's pretty toasty as well, so there's no need to tentatively dip your toes – just dive straight in.
Majorca is ruggedly beautiful. Tree-covered craggy rocks lead down to clear blue sea, and there are plenty of secluded coves to discover. Explore the famous Coves dels Hams and Coves del Drach near Calla Millor and admire their eerie underground lakes, or head to the north and watch adrenaline junkies cliff-dive from terrifying heights.
Not only is Majorca a favourite with British holidaymakers, but you'll find folk from all over Europe and farther afield too. In recent years, Majorca has welcomed over six million visitors into its sunny arms. That's pretty impressive for such a small island. Resorts are well developed to cater for tourists and whether you need a new inflatable or a tube of Pringles, you'll find it here. You'll also find plenty of pubs with home favourites on tap and restaurants knocking up pizza and chips alongside tasty traditional Tapas. Don't worry though, Majorca hasn't lost its Spanish charm. You'll still see Flamenco dancers and clarinet players, and locals still enjoy a good afternoon snooze too.
With so many resorts, each with their own personality, Majorca caters for everyone no matter whether you're holidaying as a family, a couple or a group of friends. And wherever you choose to stay, there's good public transport across the island, so if you do fancy a change of scenery just hop aboard a local bus and you can be bronzing on another beach or shopping 'til you drop in no time. Hiring a car is a popular choice too, and works out as good value if you're travelling as a family.
