Majorca is the largest island in the Balearic Island archipelago and has long been a popular holiday destination. Rich in history with hidden treasures to explore at every turn, it’s easy to see why.
The island’s capital, Palma, can trace its history all the way back to the Roman Empire and the Byzantine Empire, making it an ideal place to visit for history buffs. Make sure you visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria and the Arab Baths, and relax in Placa Major with tapas and a beer after a busy day of exploring.
Majorca is home to the Serra de Tramuntarra, a beautiful world-heritage mountain range in the west of the island. Head here on bike or on foot and explore the island’s lush terrain. The town of Alcudia in the north-east is home to 7kms of sandy beach as well as a charming old town to explore when the temperature cools. Explore a more traditional side of the island in the rustic fishing village of Cala Bona, or take a trip to beautiful Deia for lush olive and orange groves.
With a mild climate even in the winter months, Majorca is the perfect place to visit all year round.
