Majorca is the largest of the Balearic islands, and a wonderful place to holiday with gentle sandy beaches, beautiful blue sea, and stunning mountain landscapes. Various locations around the island all make for great holiday locations.
Puerto Pollensa on the north western coast of Majorca is a delightful setting with the bay of Pollensa which is home to many yachts. Because it is surrounded by the dramatic Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range, the bay is very sheltered making it ideal for family holidays as young children have plenty of space here to play on the warm sands. There are lots of beaches here and if you’re looking for a really relaxed atmosphere this is a great choice.
Alcudia to the south east of Puerto Pollensa on the north coast of the island lies at the top of a long curving bay where you can find a wonderful 8 kilometre long white sandy beach. The old town just inland is one of the best areas on the island if you’re looking to investigate the history of Majorca, and the nearby waterpark is very popular with families.
Palma, the island’s capital city, lies at the south west of the island and occupies the north western end of the bay of Palma. The city is fairly lively all year round as many festivals and fiestas take place here. This city is sophisticated, and stylish, but at the same time, modern meets historic here and there are lots of museums, a wonderful cathedral, and many excellent restaurants and shops to enjoy.
For people who are looking for somewhere lively then Magaluf is a great choice. Here you’ll find many water sports taking place during the daytime from jet skiing to surfing and scuba diving, and adventure is the name of the game. In the evenings and through the nights, the area has many discos and clubs, and becomes lively with people dancing and partying through the night.
There are many other areas here where people can enjoy holidays, from beaches to mountains, villages to city life, there truly is something on this island to suit virtually every taste.
