Spanish sunshine and stunning beaches are more affordable than ever
A break in the sun may feel like a luxury, but that doesn’t mean it has to have a price tag to match – with just a two and a half hour flight, you can be working on a free tan in Majorca in no time.
Though you can find big and bustling resorts, Majorca’s natural beauty has been well preserved. You’ll discover some of its best features in the sleepy seaside coves of Cala Bona, where small town values still thrive.
In Alcudia, affordable adventures in the rustic hinterlands include hiring an inexpensive 4×4 or stretching out for free on the long stretch of beaches. You can also opt for a livelier resort experience in Palma Nova, known for its affordable drinks and bevy of good British pubs.
Cheap days out in Majorca
Walk around the harbour in Cala Bona as you absorb the gorgeous sea views or explore the huge rock pools and caves just inland. Incredible snorkelling just off the coast also gives you a closer look at the sea life.
Climb Alcudia’s dramatic cliffs for uninterrupted panoramic views before diving into the sparkling water between sunbathing sessions. For a mixture of seaside beach days and trips into Majorca’s charming capital – Palma Town – Palma Nova is the ideal base and just a 20-minute drive from Alcudia. Beautiful ancient buildings, superb shops and a charming local market make browsing fun, even on tight budgets.
