Majorca Holidays

Read more about Majorca

With a short flight time, year-round sunshine and plenty of beaches to relax on, it’s no surprise that Majorca continues to prove popular with British holidaymakers. Palma, the capital city, is full of history and charming architecture whilst livelier resorts such as Magaluf are perfect for party holidays.

Beaches
Majorca is home to over 200 beaches, ranging from those that are busy all day long to quieter hideaways. The sandy beach in Peurto Pollensa has a long promenade, a variety of watersports and restaurants within reach. Majorca’s longest beach, Alcudia Bay, is a popular family-favourite due to its shallow waters and flat sand.

Culture
Like most Mediterranean countries, Majorca holds afternoon siestas so many of the local shops will be closed at some point between 13:00-17:30. The island is also known for its traditional festivals such as Festes de Sant Sebastià which celebrates Palma’s patron saint - St. Sebastian - with bonfires, food and live music.

Food & Drink
The cuisine in Majorca is similar to that of mainland Spain with favourites including a combination of fresh seafood and vegetables, both of which are harvested on the island. Typical dishes include panada, a pie containing meat and vegetables and paella, a rice dish that usually contains seafood or other meat along with a range of vegetables. Popular drinks include herbas secos, a herb liquor that varies in sweetness depending on your own personal taste.

Nightlife
Magaluf is the liveliest resort in Majorca and with world-famous clubs such as BCM and Stereo Bar, it’s no surprise that partygoers continue to return. Most resorts offer live music and other entertainment such as flamenco dancing and karaoke while you will also find a handful of cocktail bars if you fancy something more chilled.
