Majorca For Over 50s

Majorca – The Perfect Holiday Destination For Over 50s

When you reach 50, you want a relaxing yet exhilarating holiday destination that offers a bit of everything. That’s why Majorca is the perfect holiday island for the more discerning traveller.

The over 50s expect a little bit more from their holidays. As we get older, we appreciate the more finer things in life, and holidays are no exception. It’s the perfect time to immerse yourself in the culture, landscape and the beauty of a place without the distractions of rowdy tourists or all night parties.

Majorca, the largest of the Balearic islands, has stunning coastlines, tranquil fishing towns and an array of activities to delight even the most discerning tourists. Here’s a look at some of the places this beautiful island has to offer.

Peurto Soller

Overlooked by the magnificent backdrop of the Tramuntana Mountains, this beautiful horseshoe harbour on the West coast is surrounded by lush green landscape, botanical gardens and typical Majorcan buildings to give you a delightful taste of the culture and natural beauty of Majorca.

The lovely sandy beach bay is surrounded by pavement cafes and restaurants offering freshly caught seafood. From luxury resorts to simple apartments, Peurto Soller offers a variety of accommodation for all budgets.

Cala Bona

The laid back old fishing town of Cala Bona is situated on the East coast of the island. Enjoy a relaxed seafood lunch in one of the numerous waterfront restaurants before exploring the winding streets of this charming and rustic town. You’ve a choice of sandy beaches to choose from with clear, calm waters 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.

Cala D’Or

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. Alternatively, you can relax at one of the various waterfront bars, dine on fresh seafood or sip on a chilled glass of champagne while overlooking the crystalline 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 and crystal clear waters, perfect for swimming. 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 or raucous.

Puerto Pollensa

Situated on the North East coast, Puerto Pollensa has a relaxed and laid back atmosphere and is adorned with pretty beaches and picturesque traditional old stone houses that give you an authentic feel of the ‘real’ Majorca. Wander down the delightful cobblestone promenade and on to the lovely, elegant 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 at its best.
