As the largest and most popular of the Balearic Islands off Spain's southern coast, Majorca attracts enraptured visitors year after year.
Boasting some of the finest beaches in Europe and a climate that is agreeable throughout the calendar, plus fantastic amenities, plenty of nightlife options and truly stunning scenery and architecture, it's no surprise that Majorca has become the poster-child for Mediterranean getaways.
Of course, that's not even factoring in Majorca's biggest attraction for many holidaymakers – the pristine stretches of sand that encircle it. For many Brits, the name Majorca conjures up images of sun-kissed beaches fringed by towering hotel skyscrapers and bustling with package holidaymakers looking for plenty of fun in the sun.
If a beach-party-sleep-repeat holiday formula is what you're searching for, you'll certainly find it on the island, with a highly-developed tourist infrastructure and world-class coastlines hugging its shores. However, there's also plenty of variation when it comes last minute holidays to Majorca so it really does have something for all types of tourists.
Majorca offers budget digs or 5* accommodation, fast food or fine dining, chilled out bars or all-night clubs and lazy beach days or high-adrenaline watersports.
The coastline of Alcudia is teeming with beach space as it stretches for 8km with plenty of other sands to discover outside the town.
This family resort offers plenty of activities that can be enjoyed by all ages including Hidropark, a go-kart track and a 54-hole mini golf course. To spend a day moving at a leisurely pace, head towards the old town of Alcudia where sand coloured buildings and castle walls surround a good selection of shops and restaurants.
This north east coast resort provides a great selection of lively bars which offer nightly entertainment that the whole family will love.
Cala Bona is part tourist hotspot, part fishing village and the town's harbour is an attractive area where the two worlds merge. Dozens of boats dock here but visitors will want to sample the many bakeries and restaurants that are found at the marina.
Cala Bona shares Cala Millor's large beach but also has a small shingled beach of its own. There are street performers in the town during the summer to entertain tourists and there are pleasant pubs that aim to do the same.
Cala Millor has now been catering for tourists for more than 80 years but it is still known as a modern tourist resort. That's thanks to the great selection of new hotels as well as the amenities that are ideally placed for visitors to enjoy.
A lively beach filled with water sports and beach bars runs throughout the length of the town. The shoreline is soft and shallow making it a great area for the kids to paddle in.
There are miles of beautiful natural scenery around Cala Millor and there are a number of tours available so that you can experience it all.
One of the first tourism towns built in Majorca, Palma Nova knows a thing or two about giving visitors a good holiday.
This is a lively resort that features plenty of beach fun, vibrant bars and restaurants as well as convenient links to nearby attractions. Despite all this, Palma Nova is comparatively calmer than its neighbour Magaluf whose nightclubs are just a five minute drive away.
There are three beaches to choose from here and there is a great selection of places to dine that look out to sea. Palma Nova is a great destination for tourists to enjoy great weather on a great bay.
