With its winning personality, this seriously popular destination and celebrity hotspot has something for everyone, helped of course by a fine Mediterranean climate.
The largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands, Majorca boasts hotels for all tastes and budgets, from modern, all-inclusive beach resorts to beautifully converted historic homes and farmhouses (fincas) set in the rustic landscapes of the Serra de Tramuntana.
Alternatively, opt for one of the historic Majorcan hotels in fashionable Palma. Dominated by its cathedral and castles, this handsome capital city transforms from cultural hotspot by day to one of Europe’s hippest party towns come nightfall.
For more nocturnal hedonism, head to Magaluf or Palma Nova, or discover a more sedate Mediterranean experience on the long, sandy beaches that line the north coast, or in the beautiful sandy coves of Cala D’or.
Foodies should take a tour of Palma’s tapas bars, or head to one of Majorca’s highly regarded gourmet restaurants for local game and seafood accompanied by fine Majorcan wines. Those who prefer more familiar fare will find plenty on offer at hotels in Majorca and the restaurants of Magaluf and Palma Nova.
Given the island’s appeal, it’s wise to book your preferred Majorca accommodation well in advance.
