Luxury Majorca Holidays
Probably the most popular of all the sun-drenched Balearics, the Spanish island of Majorca is known for its great beaches and effervescent nightclubs - yet for those looking to get away from the crowds, inland Majorca has an entirely different atmosphere. The easy access to amenities, souvenir shops and restaurants provides a familiarity with home.
Majorca’s capital, Palma, is a cultural hotspot packed with modern art galleries and a striking gothic cathedral, as well as a multitude of shopping opportunities. Just outside the city is the small but attractive beach Cala Major, sheltered by fragrant pine woods.
The coves of Majorca are called “calas” and offer clear turquoise water and fine sandy beaches that won’t disappoint anyone in search of a do-nothing holiday. Sheltered bays like Cala Barca are popular with families, while the animated beach bars of other coves attract a younger crowd. On the more rugged south-eastern coast, Mondrago Natural Park is an area of great natural beauty and fabulous, untouched beaches. New roads through the island have improved accessibility to the mountainous region and it’s worth hiring a car and trekking inland to witness traditional, untouched Majorca.
From the wild parties of Magaluf to the picturesque mountain villages, this scenic Mediterranean island has so much more to offer than a glass of sangria, with a beauty acknowledged by artists and sun seekers for decades.
Majorca’s hot Mediterranean climate means hours of sunshine in July and August but the sea is great for bathing from late May right through to September. A sweater may be required if a mountain trek is planned.
Who visits Majorca?
