Majorca Holidays

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.

Quick Tips

Roman Catholic
GMT +1

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.

Places to Visit

Water parks

There's a fantastic choice of water parks on the island, including Aqualandia/El Foro de Mallorca in Palma, Aquapark in Magaluf, Hydropark and Aquacity S'Arenal in Platja de Palma.

S’Albufera Nature Reserve

These stunning wetlands between Alcudia and C'an Picafort cover around 4,200 acres are perfect for wildlife spotting or just take a walk surrounded by Majorcan beauty. The wetlands are home to over two hundred species of bird.

Palma Cathedral

Also known as "La Seu" or the "Cathedral of the Sea", this vast and imposing Gothic cathedral is located in Majorca's capital. Inside there is a small museum that houses earlier parts of Palma Cathedral and the cathedral's Trinity Chapel houses the tombs of Kings Jaime II and III.

Family favourites

Cala Bona is a pretty little fishing harbour with safe shores for little ones to splash around in. It's smaller than big brother Cala Millor but we think it's much more charming. Santa Ponsa is very much a home away from home and if you like to wander on an evening it has a lovely square that comes alive with singers, musicians and entertainers. There are plenty of family-friendly bars too, so you can relax with a drink whilst the kids dance along to the music. Alcudia, with its Old Town and Roman ruins, is a good choice if you like a little bit of history. The resort is well-equipped with shops and eateries too, and there's plenty of room to build big sandcastles on its 7 kilometre beach.

Great for groups

Magaluf is one of the most famous clubbing destinations in the world. Popular with the 18 to 30 crowd, it's lively, it's loud and it knows how to party – hard. When the sun goes down, party animals are drawn to the laser-lit bars of the infamous Maga strip, before heading to late-night establishments such as superclub BCM. With over 50 bars and clubs to choose from, there are more places to shimmy on down than you could shake a shot glass at, and they're all conveniently within staggering distance. During the day, revellers sleep off last night's antics on the long stretch of sun lounger-strewn sand. There are plenty of places to grab a Full English and, if you're feeling fresh enough, Magaluf beach offers a great selection of watersports.

If you like your nightlife loud but want to escape the crowds during the day, consider staying in neighbouring Palma Nova. Despite its proximity to party central, there's no overspill here and Palma Nova caters very well for families with its shallow shore, child-friendly eateries and nearby waterpark.

Catered to coupled

Laid back Puerto Pollensa is a firm favourite. It's got the looks, the location and the atmosphere - there's a good mix of traditional, modern and historic all tucked into an oyster-shaped bay backed by rugged mountains. Wander the chic marina, and stop for a cocktail on the waterfront where boats bob amiably on turquoise waves.

The capital itself, Palma, is a cosmopolitan city that combines culture and style. There are plenty of romantic restaurants and the old town is a lovely place to get lost, hand in hand. It may not have a beach of its own, but there are plenty of sandy shores nearby.
