Just to the east of Spain is the equally sunny, picturesque and fabulous sands of Mallorca. The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca has a great reputation as a holiday destination, with the lively party town of Magaluf for night-time fun and the capital of Palma oozing with culture. The island is made of an eclectic mix of areas and resorts catering for families, couples, and corporate holidays also, so get packing… your luxury European holiday awaits.
Sunbathe on the crisp sands of beautiful beaches near your luxury resort, while sipping cocktails under the beating heat that Mallorca is known for. Take to the crystal-clear seas in seaside excursions which can be found on most beaches around the island, including boat tours, jet skis, kayaks and more. Dine in up-market restaurants and bars offering extraordinary culinary dishes that’ll make you wonder how you’ve never eaten such glorious food before. While you’re there, allow yourself to be treated like royalty as most resorts are ones of second-to-none service, where the staff will endeavour to fulfil your every whim.
If you’re looking to get some culture in you then this humble island is equally rich for that too. Feel inspired at the visiting of Palma Cathedral and experience awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as Serra de Trumantana. Or, visit the local old towns and villages that have stuck to their roots like Alcudia or Algaida. With historic sites such as the beautiful structures of Llotja and Puig de Pollenca, there’s clearly plenty more to experience than the phenomenal Mediterranean food and world-class service.
Mallorca is a hit with golf fans too, as not only can you tee-off in the warm, exotic scenes with quality service from the staff, but because of the sheer number of golf clubs to choose from. There are 20 golf courses across the island, each with their own unique fairways to negotiate. Have a drink in the clubhouses after reaching your par, and if your play isn’t quite up to scratch, many clubs also have academies so you can up your game with expert help.
Mallorca is the gem of the Balearic Islands, full of a great mix of parties, relaxation facilities, pristine beaches and frothing with five-star hotels. There’s no doubt that you’ll find the resort for you, and it’s guaranteed that when you do, you will fall absolutely smitten for this astonishing island.
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
Mallorca’s name comes from the Latin expression ‘Insula Maior’, literally translating to ‘major island’ in English. The Romans named it after its larger size in contrast to the other Balearic Islands, especially 'Insula Minor', or Menorca. Centuries of linguistic evolution produced the names used today, with two spellings (Mallorca and Majorca) both pronounced the same.
