The largest of the Spanish islands, Majorca has so many sightseeing spots, restaurants, bars, and shops to make your holiday memorable.

Majorca rarely fails to impress. It’s a chameleon of an island that can be whatever you want it to be. From the chic bars of Magaluf in the west to the stylish promenades of Cala d’Or in the east, the lichen-studded stone-built towns of the northern highlands – Fornalutx, Binibassi, Sóller – to the churches and lemon groves of Artà, there’s so much to get through in this Balearic jewel. The choice of accommodation is equally varied just like its attractions. The budget properties to luxury boutique hotels in Majorca are available in historic villages, towns, cities and of course in the beachfront area.

Visit the capital city! Palma de Mallorca for its popular tourists’ attractions such as Es Baluard, Bellver Castle and the Balearic Coliseum.

Get a vintage train to Sóller! Also known as Golden Valley, is overflown with the fragrance of lemon and orange trees. It is situated close to the sea offering beach lovers a perfect spot for water sports, drinking in beach shacks. Take a wooden train from Palma to enjoy the pretty views.

Of course, resorts like Magaluf and Cala Ratjada, also have plenty of international spots, touting daily menus of German schnitzel and English fry-ups.
