Read more about Majorca

The Balearic Island where the peaceful shores glisten with white sand and crystal-blue waters shine, Majorca is a beach lover’s paradise. Discover a tranquil cove to soak up the sun (they’re not too hard to find), party all day and all night in the popular resort of Magaluf or treat yourself to some retail therapy and delicious tapas in Palma. Whether you’re travelling with family, friends or a loved one, there’s a perfect piece of coastline waiting for you to enjoy an incredible holiday on this stunning island.



Beaches
Famed for its rugged coastline, secluded sandy bays and bright turquoise waters, Majorca is an ever-popular holiday destination for travellers all over the world. With over 260 beaches and around 50km of sandy shores, it’s easy to see why! Family-friendly beaches such as Alcudia Bay (Majorca’s longest bay) and Puerto Pollensa offer wide sandy stretches, gently sloping sands and shallow waters – perfect for relaxing beach days with the little ones. For a truly unique beach day, head off the beaten track to unspoilt beaches such as Cala Mondragó and Cala Formentor and for something a little livelier, you can’t beat the buzzing atmosphere of Magaluf Beach with its host of restaurants and bars along the shore.

Food & Drink
While traditional Spanish food remains at the heart of Majorcan cuisine, Majorca also has the added benefit of Balearic specialities and fantastic local dishes. Traditional Spanish tapas and dishes such as paella are interspersed by unique Majorcan favourites such as tumbet – a vegetable dish made with aubergines, onions and peppers with a tomato based sauce, and sobrassada – a minced sausage made from pork, bacon and seasoning that is usually eaten on slices of crusty bread.

Culture
Majorcan culture has been shaped by its rich and colourful past. Roman castle ruins, Medieval fortresses and Gothic cathedrals are littered across the island and, while there is no official religion here, Roman Catholicism is widely practiced, resulting in plenty of churches throughout the towns. Regular festivals bring colour and life to the streets with parades and celebrations for various saints and people of note. The infamous IronMan challenge is also held here, attracting large crowds from far and wide.

Nightlife
The nightlife in Majorca varies from town to town and can be a vastly different experience depending on the time of year you visit. Family-oriented resorts such as Santa Ponsa and Puerto Pollensa are known for a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of restaurants and bars while the capital, Palma Nova, offers a vibrant nightlife with late bars and a host of top restaurants. If you’re looking for somewhere with a lively nightlife and a party holiday you’ll never forget, Magaluf is the place for you. El Arenal is a young and upbeat resort with plenty of entertainment venues while Illetas offers a range of chic and sophisticated bars.
