Sun, sea, sand, sights, shopping, siestas… when it comes to getaways, whether you’re looking for cheap holidays or non-stop adventures, magical Majorca has got them all. This Spanish gem, one of the popular Balearic Islands marooned just off the east coast of the mainland, is a hive of activity and a haven of things to see and do.
If you’re into non-stop holidays where the emphasis is focused squarely on lively days and big nights out, head for the buzzing resort town of Magaluf. Based within a short distance of the island’s capital, Palma, energetic Magaluf is the place to be for nightlife of just about every description imaginable. From DJ booths and strobe lights to cheesy discos, English pubs and cocktail bars, Magaluf has got it all. So if you’re after a bit of 18-30s style mayhem, this is definitely the place to be.
If cheap holidays are on the agenda, take your pick. Most of Majorca’s major resort towns like sprawling Alcudia, bustling Palma Nova, manic Magaluf and lovely Puerto Pollensa offer great money-saving deals on summer getaways, especially if you book a late departure or travel outside of the peak season.
As for family holidays, the island really is your oyster. From activity-packed resorts and child-friendly hotels with all the kids’ clubs and swimming pools you can ever wish for, to laid-back resorts for low-key family fun on the beach, Majorca is nothing if not a family-orientated holiday destination.
Oh and for the shoppers and sightseers among us, you can’t beat a day in Palma. The island’s beautiful capital is a stylish city that’s packed with shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, and of course great places to visit. One must-do is a visit to Palma Cathedral to take in its gothic architecture and splendid interior, before heading to the waterfront for a relaxing coffee in the sunshine.
From big nights out to snoozing on the beach, holidays in Majorca are magical, deliciously diverse, and simply unforgettable.
