- Palma de Mallorca Airport is only 20 minutes from the breathtaking city of Palma. As the capital city of Majorca, it is a must see for all visitors.
They call it the king of the Balearics because of its size, but we think it is more to do with its majestic beauty. Home to golden sands and turquoise waters as far as the eye can see, Majorca is breathtaking all around.
This Spanish island is home to some of the best beaches in the Balearics. Some of which have been awarded blue flag status. With their golden, warm sands and clear blue seas, it is no wonder that so many travellers can be found here.
Playa de Alcudia beach is particularly popular with families visiting the island. With easy access to plenty of restaurants and ice cream parlours, you'll never need to leave. Another family-friendly beach is the popular Playa de Sa Coma. Located on the northeast coast of the island, you'll find plenty to keep you busy here. Why not try banana boating or parasailing?
If you are looking for complete seclusion, however, take a trip to Cala Tuent. This shingle beach on the northwest of the island is perfect for an idyllic escape from the crowds. Soak up the sun and the views of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, including its highest peak, Puig Major. It's also worth noting that this stunning area of the island was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
For a day away from the beaches, we suggest a visit to the Cuevas del Drach in Porto Cristo. Translated as the Caves of Drach, this site hosts one of the largest caves in Europe. Found on the east coast of the island, the caves are within walking distance of Porto Cristo town.
A trip to Majorca is not complete without a visit to the capital, Palma. Here you can take in the stunning architecture of the island's most iconic cathedral. The Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma is one of Europe's tallest Gothic structures. And with its 61 stained-glass windows, it's no wonder many call it the 'cathedral of light.'
Elsewhere around the island, travellers can explore the many traditional towns and villages. The town of Soller set in the heart of the 'valley of oranges' can be found in the northwest of Majorca. Boasting wealth, elegance and a nod to the Art Nouveau period, the town has an artistic buzz about it.
Also north of the island is the town of Pollensa. Home to narrow streets and ancient architecture, the town plays host to a long history. The Puig de Maria & monastery are also found in this town and can be reached within an hour's climb.
