To many, Majorca is the godfather of summer holidays. It has long been a favourite of sun-seekers and beach-lovers, who come here to soak up the warm rays on golden sands and relax for a week or two of castaway bliss. Many holidaymakers choose to come back here, year after year, for their annual fix of sun, sea and sand. So what makes holidays to Majorca so magical?
A large part of Majorca’s appeal lies in its ability to attract holidaymakers from all walks of life. From clubbers to families, adventure-seekers to those looking for a week of relaxation, it’s all here.
Majorca is a particularly popular spot for families. It boasts well-equipped resorts and family hotels, many of which offer great facilities such as pools, water parks, kids’ clubs and more. Vibrant resorts like Alcudia and Palma Nova offer a lively mix of daytime activities for all ages, with plenty of bars, pubs and clubs for after dark.
Cala D’Or is a cracking resort on the island’s east coast, which is home to beautiful sandy bays and an attractive marina, not to mention a superb selection of shops, bars and restaurants. On the quieter side is Santa Ponsa, a sleepy family-friendly resort on the south coast with a large beach and several smaller coves close by. At the opposite end of the scale is loud and lively Magaluf – a clubbers’ paradise with stacks of nightclubs and booming bars.
And if you fancy a day in the city, head to capital Palma to satisfy your inner culture vulture! Here you can wander among beautiful buildings, explore its winding streets, melt some plastic in the fabulous boutiques and discover Palma’s beautiful gothic cathedral. And, once you’re ready for a break, you can take the weight off at one of the city’s lovely pavement cafes or dive into a cosy restaurant for a classic taste of Spain.
Didn’t I say that Majorca holidays are nothing short of magical?
