There’s a wealth of beautiful places to stay on Majorca; fun in the sun, family friendly or stylishly upmarket – there’s a resort for every type of holiday.
As a city, Palma is a stylish Majorcan city with beautiful sights. Head east or west out of Palma and it won’t be long before you stumble on a beach. About a kilometre towards Portixol you’ll hit Playa de Palma, a long stretch of sands made up of several smaller beaches. The nearest one to Palma is Ca’n Pere Antoni.
Being the biggest of the Balearics, Majorca has long been a favourite holiday spot. Popular family resorts include: Alcudia, Puerto Pollensa and Cala Bona, which are brimming with restaurants, shops and cafes.
Things get lively over on the island’s west coast, with the trio of Palma, Palma Nova and Magaluf leading the way with their neon-lit bars and clubs.
Summer gets underway in May when the temperatures start to climb and the beach days officially end in October. Sea temperatures are at their best from August onwards when it warms up enough to be perfect for swimming.
Basically flying to Palma opens you to discovering the whole island, with great family holidays available.
