Beautiful inside and out

This Spanish island is predominantly famous for the miles of golden sands that surround the coast. Many of the island's resorts are based around the terrific beaches with some providing enthusiastic tourist locations full of water sports and rental equipment while some prefer to offer laidback experiences in secluded locations.

More often than not, you'll find a promenade or boardwalk right by your beach so that you can enjoy a quick snack or an evening meal whilst looking out to sea.

Majorca offers more than just coastal charms; the inland area is filled with rugged beauty. Tree-covered craggy rocks lead down to clear blue sea, and there are plenty of secluded coves to discover. Explore the famous Caves of Drach near Calla Millor and admire their eerie underground lakes, or head to the north and watch adrenaline junkies cliff-dive from terrifying heights.

You'll find wonderful resorts like Deya and Alaro sitting in the shade of the Tramuntana Mountains. They're perfect locations to gaze upon the impressive natural surroundings.

Clubbing, relaxing and socialising

In terms of holiday entertainment, some would say it doesn't get better than the party town of Magaluf. The beautiful beach here plays second fiddle to the large scale nightlife found just behind. Dozens of pubs, clubs and nightclubs means there is always a party to join every night of the week on any day of the year.

Other resorts know how to have just as much fun but with a bit more reverence than Magaluf. Arenal is another hectic nightspot that features more European travellers than British ones.

Resorts in the north and east sections of the island are more relaxed but can be just as sociable. You'll find a fun selection of cocktail lounges elsewhere while Ca'n Picafort and Alcudia feature pubs and bars that the whole family can enjoy.

Paella, tapas and wine

Majorcan cuisine is very similar to mainland Spain's dishes so expect to enjoy a lot of paella dishes accompanied by wine at Spanish and Mediterranean restaurants. There are some delicious local options too with servings of Frit Mallorquí, a meat based dish served with fried peppers and potatoes, and Sopes Mallorquines, a variation of mushroom stew.

You'll also find plenty of pubs with home favourites on tap and restaurants knocking up pizza and chips alongside tasty traditional Tapas.

Palma shopping

You won't struggle to find a holiday souvenir or some beach gear in any of the coastal resorts in Majorca. There are plenty of shops available that cater for tourist's needs but the real retail star is at the island's capital, Palma.

Majorca's only city stocks the town with countless boutiques and stalls, placed between areas of impressive history and architecture. As well as the independent sellers there are large commercial malls selling familiar brand names.

Getting there

Majorca's only airport is the Palma de Mallorca Airport which is right by the capital in the south of the island. The flight time from the UK will be between 2-3 hours depending on where you fly from.

Once you've arrived it should take no longer than an hour to reach your desired destination. Many resorts in the west are less than 30 minutes away but the resorts in the north and the east will take around 60 minutes to reach.

Public transport is strong around the Palma area but not fantastic for elsewhere on the island. If you want to discover the island at your own convenience, hiring a car is recommended.

Best time of year to travel

Majorca basks in 300 days of sunshine each year and in the summer months temperatures soar above 30C. Average temperatures peak at 25C in August and drop to a mild 9C in January.

Family holiday resorts will no doubt get busier outside of school term time while the summer months will also be the busiest for the clubbing resorts.

Over the summer there are often music festivals held in larger towns. The genres cover classical Spanish to jazz or flamenco. They're always an enjoyable occasion though where locals and tourists get in the spirit together.
