Majorca Introduction

Majorca is the largest of the 4 Balerearic islands, located in the Mediterranean sea off the east coast of Spain

 

"From Palma's cosmopolitan seafront to the rugged beauty of the Tramuntana mountains, Majorca is a glittering island full of delightful surprises."

It’s easy to see why the Spanish king moved his summer palace to Majorca – this island, the largest of the Balearic chain, is a dazzling jewel in the heart of the Mediterranean. But Majorca isn’t reserved for royalty or the Hollywood stars that frequent its shores - far from it. From non-stop partying in Magaluf to adrenaline-inducing watersports in Cala Millor, from gentle walks through tiny mountainside villages to long tapas lunches in cosmopolitan Palma, there’s something for everyone here.

Beaches on Majorca

Majorca’s beaches consist of long stretches of sandy coastline in the north and tiny unspoilt pine-clad coves in the east. Cala d’Or has numerous beautiful, powdery coves and deep inlets which can get crowded, simply because of their beauty. Puerto de Soller has a narrow town beach of sand and shingle, and a delightful sandy beach at one end. If you can’t bear to lie still for long, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to watersports. Should they seem a bit too energetic, a trip on a glass bottomed boat is a pleasant and relaxing way to glimpse the colourful underwater life of Majorca.

 

Best Beaches


 

 

Ses Salines/Cabrera

The southern tip of the island is a protected area of glorious white sand beaches. Best beaches include: Cala Mondrago , Cala Pi, Platja de la Rapita, Es Trenc (one part of which is for nudists) and Caló des Màrmol.

 

Formentor Peninsula

The northern tip near Alcudia and Pollenca , especially Platja de Muro and Platja de Formentor, are the most beautiful parts of this remote northern coastline.

 

Tramuntana Coast

There are lovely coves at Cala Deia and Sa Calobra, often visited by passing yachts.

 

Capdepera

The eastern headland is a Nature Reserve with 42km of Blue Flag beaches including five large sand beaches, of which Platja de Son Moll is the prettiest.

Porto Cristo to Porto Colom

South of Capdepera, there are a string of rocky, romantic coves such as Cala Falcó, Cala Romàntica (also known as s'Estany d'en Mas) and Cala Bota. They are harder to get to so often empty in high season. Good for romancing couples.

Shopping

Majorca is renowned for its beautifully crafted artificial pearls. Found in shops all over the island, they make a great value treat or gift. Good buys also include embroidery, olive wood carvings, kitchenware and leather goods - look out for the factories found on the outskirts of most towns. Palma has everything from a wonderful flea market every Saturday to designer boutiques and high street chains, including a large, exclusive department store.

Nightlife

Majorca offers a variety of diverse nightlife, ranging from the lively bars, discos and never ending happy hours of Magaluf to the relaxed, seafood restaurants of Puerto Pollensa and Cala d’Or. Majorca has scores of English pubs and restaurants, but those searching for local flavour won't be disappointed - there is often a Balearic ballet or a Spanish play showing at the Auditorium in Palma, one of Europe's top concert halls. As you would expect, nightlife in resorts is quieter and more relaxed during the winter season.

Majorca boasts a long and colourful history - its strategic mid-Mediterranean location gave it a part to play in the successive empires of the Phoenicians, Romans, Byzantines and Moors. Sea-front sections of Palma's massive town walls survive to this day, some 800 years after the Moors constructed them.

Holiday Tips

In most hotels and aparthotels gentlemen are required to wear long trousers to dinner. Most hotels or apartments ask customers to vacate their rooms between 10am and 12 midday. For late afternoon or evening flights, late check out rooms may be available. Please see Your Holiday, Your Choice options on accommodation pages. Ask your travel agent to check the Travel Advice section of TOPical for up-to-date advice and the latest known Foreign Office advice.

Food

Eating out is one of the great joys of a Majorcan holiday. Local fare includes the Balearics' ubiquitous tapas and all manner of seafood. Charcoal grilled meat dishes, particularly those based on chicken, lamb and pork, are also deservedly popular as is 'arroz brut', the Majorcan equivalent of 'paella', served with steaming saffron rice and pork or chicken. Compliment your meal with a glass of the local red wine, not unlike a mild Rioja and round it off with a delicious 'creme catalan', a rich creme caramel custard.
