Cheap Holidays to Mallorca (Majorca)
Mallorca (Majorca) Overview
Majorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and one of the most popular summer destinations for European holidaymakers. The island is home to the party capital of Magalluf in the south west, with Palmanova a near neighbour. Families flock to the east coast in more laid back resorts from Cala d'Or in the south all the way up to Puerto Pollensa in the north. With a Mediterranean climate offering scorching hot summers and mild winters, Majorca is the perfect place to soak up the sun.
Majorca is home to hundreds of great beaches, from sweeping stretches of white sand to secluded pebbly coves, all surrounded by turquoise waters. At least 40 have been given the prestigious Blue Flag award for their cleanliness, safety and facilities.
Lively day and night
The family-friendly resorts of Alcudia and Puerto Pollensa are filled with shops, restaurants and cafes to keep you busy while you’re not on the beach. Sa Coma is great for couples with its romantic tree-lined promenade, perfect for enjoying a sunset dinner at one of the open-air restaurants. Palma, the island’s capital, is the home of boutiques, tapas and a fascinating old town. Elsewhere, the party town of Magalluf pumps out the neon and bass all night long.
Go out and explore
You don’t have to stick to the beaches when there’s so much to offer inland as well. Pack a picnic and explore the rugged Tramuntana Mountains and fragrant pine forests, or discover a tiny hamlet tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Majorca isn’t a large island, but it helps to rent a car if you want to take a trip away from the main resorts. And if you’d rather stay close, you won’t be stuck for day trips with water parks, boat trips and aquariums on offer.
