The Balearic island of Majorca goes all out to impress every kind of holidaymaker. Its varied resorts tick all the boxes and there’s an endless list of fascinating things to see and do. From relaxing and strolling down the beach or enjoying all-out adventure on a cycling or golf day. What will you end up doing while you’re here?
Soak up the sunshine on the beaches
The mesmerising island of Majorca is famous for its beaches, and you’ll soon see why when you clap eyes on some of its sun-kissed shores. There are more than 100 to choose from and they vary from big and bustling to small and chilled-out.
Take a look at three of our favourites:
This huge sandy shore stretches for more than 1km and is 60m wide, so there’s plenty of space to spread out and lay down your towel. It boasts Blue Flag status too which means it’s well looked-after and the facilities are in shipshape! Spend a morning lazing under the rays, before checking out the cafés on the promenade for lunch.
Another of Majorca’s Blue Flag beauties, Santa Ponsa is one of the most popular beaches on the island and has been one of its main attractions since the 50s! It’s got everything you need for a fun-packed family day out, from beach volleyball courts and snack bars to water sports.
Up on the north coast, you’ll find the beautiful Bay of Alcudia with its powdery white sand that’s perfect for building sandcastles. The water’s clear, calm and shallow too so it’s ideal for families with mini swimmers in tow. It’s also on the list of Majorca’s Blue Flag beaches. There are even showers and toilets too!
Get active on the island
If you like to get out and about and see as much of your surroundings as possible while you’re away, why not try one of these?
Enjoy a spot of road cycling and take in much more of the island’s stunning landscapes than you would on two feet. In the south of Majorca, you’ll find some of the best routes around, with spellbinding scenery of the coast and towns to check out. Combined with vibrant seaside resorts and a distinctly cosmopolitan capital, you’ll find there’s a great variety of cycling routes on this beautiful Balearic Island. Further north, this is where pro cyclers go for the thigh-burning climbs (and stunning scenery) of the Tramuntana Mountains.
Fancy practising your swing on pristine greens that are drenched in sunshine? You’re in luck as there are more than 20 courses on the island to choose from. Alcanada and Son Gual are both two top picks for an action-packed round that offer challenges and rewards in equal measure.
