All About Majorca
A place at once rugged and raucous, party-mad and pristine, wild and wrought with shimmering resort towns that would give even the French Riviera a run for its money, Majorca rarely fails to impress. It&rsquos;s a chameleon of an island that can be whatever you want it to be – so long as that involves salty Mediterranean cuisine, plenty of sun and relaxing, of course. From the chic bars of Magaluf in the west to the chichi promenades of Cala d&rsquos;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&rsquos;s oodles 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 beach front area.
Where to stay in Majorca
Choosing the right accommodation in Majorca is perhaps the most important aspect of your holiday to this corner of the Balearics. Choose to stay in villas, self-catering apartments or luxury hotels in Majorca that are well-furnished with top amenities to make your stay make absolutely memorable. A stint in Magaluf means wild partying and seaside activities, while retreating to the Raiguer region means local markets and quaint Catalan towns. The altitudinous area of the Serra de Tramuntana is even more off-the-beaten-track, thanks to its ancient stone hamlets and goat-spotted hillsides. Meanwhile, the east coast has some top resort towns of its own, going from white-sanded Cala Millor to the turquoise-blue bays of Cala Moraia. For history, culture and local nightlife, though, the capital at Palma de Mallorca can&rsquos;t be beaten.
Wherever you choose to stay, accommodation in Majorca is reasonably priced especially when compared to many other Mediterranean destinations. If you’ll stay inland away from the coast, you can find some wonderful cheap hotels in Majorca which are fraction of the price of sea view accommodation.
Top Things to See and Do in Majorca
Any tour of Majorca surely has to begin and end in the bustling island capital of Palma de Mallorca. Delve into the Old Town there to encounter elegant Moorish architecture, the wonderful Cathedral de Mallorca, and old arabesque hammams left over from the days when the Berbers ruled these parts. Once the history and heritage is done, you could make a beeline for the golf courses of Cala Moraia on the east coast, or simply settle on one of the countless world-class beaches that abound all over the south of the island. And that&rsquos;s not even mentioning the hiking opportunities around Sóller, or subterranean adventures in the so-called Dragon Caves.
Nightlife in Majorca
Magaluf has long been the go-to place on Majorca for hedonistic partiers. Packed to bursting with wild clubs and bars and sleepless cocktail places with enticing happy hour deals, BCM Square and The Strip are the centre of the action in that 18-30 mecca. For something a tad more refined, you could opt for the more controlled nightlife at Cala Ratjada and in the resorts of the east coast, which mainly means chilled evenings of al fresco eating and wine tasting. Meanwhile, the capital of Palma has its own scene, with Catalan tapas joints frothing with beer and chattering local folk well into the early hours. Many luxury hotels in Majorca features in-house bars and nightclubs so that you don’t have to venture to enjoy the nightlife.
What to Eat in Majorca
Majorca takes tastes from the old North African Berbers and the chefs of Catalonia and fuses them together to create an interesting medley of dishes. You can sample seafood stews and tagine-style casseroles in the rustic taverns of the mountains, while a bout of Andalusian tapas is never far away in Palma de Mallorca (the capital). Of course, the resort towns, like Magaluf and Cala Ratjada, also have plenty of international spots, touting daily menus of German schnitzel and English fry ups.
Shopping in Majorca
Majorca caters will to those in need of a hit of retail therapy while on holiday. The spending starts in the capital of Palma, which boasts countless fashion outlets and high-street department stores down Passeig des Born, along with the colossal FAN centre just outside of the main town. There&rsquos;s also the San Juan Gastronomic Market (perfect for Balearic delicacies) to haggle through, and the regular craft and antiques bazaar on Placa Majo. And that&rsquos;s not even mentioning the marina shopping malls that crowd the arcades around the seaside in most of the smaller resorts.
The Price of Things in Majorca
A holiday in Majorca can cost anything from a couple of hundred euros to a small fortune.
