Majorca is the ideal destination for all ages, with relaxing beaches and beautiful scenery.
Here’s our top picks of the best locations in Spain’s largest Balearic Island.
Overlooked by the magnificent Tramuntana Mountains, Puerto Soller is a beautiful horseshoe harbour on the West coast. The harbour is surrounded by lush green landscape, botanical gardens and typical Majorcan buildings.
The sandy beach bay is near to pavement cafes and restaurants offering freshly caught seafood. From luxury resorts to simple apartments, Puerto Soller offers a variety of accommodation for all budgets.
The laid-back old fishing town of Cala Bona is found on the east coast of the island. Enjoy a relaxed seafood lunch in one of the many waterfront restaurants before exploring the winding streets of this rustic town.
There’s a variety of sandy beaches to choose from with clear, calm waters which are perfect for swimming. The evening hours offer romantic waterfront dining or cocktails overlooking the sea.
Only 20 minutes away, you’ll find the famous Caves of Drach where you can marvel at the stalagmites and stalactites or even catch a concert in the underground lake.
The Punta de N’Amer nature reserve is a lovely coastal walk with stunning views where you can truly appreciate Majorca as it once was. The castle watch tower at the top of the walk is worth climbing to enjoy the spectacular surrounding views.
The east coast is also home to Cala D’or, a long stretch of bays, marinas and whitewashed resorts that have been sympathetically developed to blend in with the traditional rustic charm of the island. It’s the perfect spot for sailing, diving and snorkelling. Or you can relax at one of the waterfront bars, dine on fresh seafood or sip on a chilled glass of champagne while overlooking the inviting waters.
Cala D’or can get busy in the summer months, so if you want to escape, take a bus to nearby Es Trenc where you’ll find a golden sandy beach. Umbrellas and loungers are readily available to hire.
If you like a bit of life in the evening, Cala D’or has a range of lively bars without being overly rowdy.
Situated on the north east coast, Puerto Pollensa has a relaxed and laid back atmosphere with picturesque traditional old stone houses that give you an authentic feel of the ‘real’ Majorca.
Wander down the cobblestone promenade and on to the marina where you’ll find a range of high-quality seafood restaurants for a lazy lunch or a romantic dinner.
The Pine Walk is a beautiful and tranquil setting where you can take a leisurely walk surrounded by Majorcan nature.
