The allure of tranquility
Those seeking a quieter retreat can lose themselves in Majorca’s more serene coastal resorts. There are a number of charming villages, away from the major tourist hubs, with their own peaceful beaches to stretch out on.
Exploring the interior of the island, dotted with fincas and fertile farmland, is perfect for a romantic getaway or a hiking holiday. In particular, the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range which runs down the western side of Majorca is a popular choice with avid mountaineers and hill-walkers and you could spend all week searching out different pockets of natural beauty.
The area is equally popular with cyclists, many of whom use it as a training track throughout the off-season. Late winter is a particularly spectacular time to swing by, on account of the millions of almond trees in blossom throughout January and February, making Majorca holiday All Inclusive packages a great choice all year round.
Soak up the culture
In recent years, residents of Majorca have worked hard to restore the island to its former glory, renovating country manors and villas to showcase the heritage and history of the island. The ruins of castles and monasteries remain across the island as relics of its once-illustrious past as a Mediterranean stronghold. In the capital, Palma, there are fantastic architectural examples on display in the shape of grand palaces, abandoned forts and awe-inspiring cathedrals.
Meanwhile, the windmills, vineyards, olive groves and rustic towns which dominate Es Pla, the rural heartland of the island, provide an insight into a side of Majorca which has survived its recent rise in the tourism charts.
A gastronomic extravaganza
A revolution in Majorcan cooking has seen traditional styles being fused with modern twists in a creative burst of flavour. In fact, as of October 2015, the island boasted seven Michelin-starred restaurants, meaning that you can sample some truly unique and outstanding dishes across the island. There really hasn’t been a better time to satisfy your stomach here, so make sure that even on All Inclusive holidays to Majorca you still take time to explore the local cuisine.
As well as visiting the many wineries that are scattered across the central region of Majorca, you can also learn how to make delicious Majorcan-style produce for yourself. There are olive and grape harvests to take part in and lessons on how to create the island’s famous pork sausage – sobrasada – to add a little Spanish flair to your next dinner party.
Bring the little ones too
Majorca is so much more than a boozy break or romantic retreat – it also offers a myriad of different options to satisfy all of the family. At Jungle Parc you can swing from tree to tree like Tarzan or Jane, as it provides canopied excitement for all ages on its zip lines, swings and obstacle courses.
