Great Places to Visit

This big Balearic beauty is a haven for holidaymakers. Whether you want action-packed family fun, or laid-back living with a glass of Sangria in hand, the options are endless.

Delve into the Island’s History

Despite the beach appeal, Majorca is full of historic charm too, especially in its capital, Palma, which dates back to the Bronze Age. The shady streets offer a break from the scorching sun, while providing you with enchanting sights to snap, including the Catedral de Mallorca, the Banys Arabs baths and gothic Bellver Castle.

Get to Grips with Nature

Lose yourself in the beauty of nature with a trip to one of the island’s natural parks. Head for the dizzy heights of the cliffs of Formentor, or the S’Albufera marshlands if you’re into spotting birds and wildlife, or explore the remote Mondrago Natural Park, where waterfowl and holidaymakers share the reserve harmoniously.

Hike and Bike in the Hills

The majestic hills and mountains of Majorca are begging to be explored, with plenty of trails to choose from. Don a pair of comfy boots and head for the craggy terrain, take a relaxing walk or enjoy a leisurely bike ride along the coastal trails which introduce you to the beauty that lies beyond the tourist hotspots.

Make a Splash in the Med

Majorca is geared up to appeal to the watersports enthusiast in all of us, and the warm waters of the Med are an adventure playground for anyone wishing to appease their inner adrenaline junkie. From banana boats, jet skis and speedboats, to parasails and pedalos, the Majorcan coastline is full of wet and wild adventure.

Getting Around

Most of Majorca’s major tourist resorts have a regular bus service, and there is a train service that can take visitors further inland, plus the vintage train running between Palma and Soller daily. Cars are available to hire, cheaply, from the popular tourist resorts or the airport. Ferries go to the other islands, plus mainland Spain, while boats are also available to hire to beach hop in style.

By Bus

Tourist areas generally have good bus services going around and between them, but longer routes can be much less frequent. Some routes don’t operate on Sundays, during low season or late at night.

By Car

Cars can be hired from most resorts or the airport, and the main roads are good. Book in advance during the peak season to guarantee a car, and to also keep the price you pay as low as possible. Driving is on the right hand side.
