Majorca Holidays

Show on Map

Majorca has the lion's share of beaches in the Balearics, from C'an Picafort in the north – all sweeping golden sand and gentle waves – to activity fuelled beaches around Alcudia and Santa Ponsa. And if sand isn't your thing, there are water parks, old towns and the island's capital to explore.

Great beaches

White, sandy beaches run along Majorca's coastline for hundreds of kilometres. And with major seaside resorts like Magalluf and Palma Nova in the mix, no wonder it's one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. 

Photo opportunities

Inland, Majorca offers up some incredible scenery. There are jagged mountains crossed by cycling routes and hidden-away villages to discover. The capital, Palma, also has a magnificent Gothic cathedral. 

Water park fun

There are six water parks on Majorca. Aqualand in S'Arenalis great for kids, and even comes with a mini-zoo!Wave House in Magalluf has high-octane slides, as well as wave machines and a special section for little ones. Finally, in the Palma Aquarium, you can get face-to-face with real-life sharks and octopuses. 

Best beaches

Alcudia's Playa de Muro is a long, Blue-Flag-awarded spool of white sand, lined by beach bars and patches of juniper trees. It's got all the essentials – shops and loos are on hand – so it's a hit with families. For total escape, try sleepy Cala Tuent with its gently swaying palm trees and outstanding mountain views.

Top sights

Island capital Palmadates back to Roman times, and the old town has a maze of cobbled streets to explore. Shopping and sizzling tapas bars top things off.

Out and about

Hop on a boat to Cabrera in the south, near Cala d’Or. You’ll see lots of rare wildlife, including the indigenous Balearic lizards, at this sprawling national park.

Eating and drinking

Majorca does traditional Spanish flavours with its own Balearic spin. You'll often see ensaïmadas at breakfast – tasty buns covered in a generous amount of icing sugar. Don't leave without trying the tangy grimalt cheese!

Shopping

There are many markets in most of the resorts, which sell pretty keepsakes like jewellery and fridge magnets. Full-on shopaholics can head to Palma, where big high-street brands sit cheek-by-jowl with classy boutiques.

Nightlife

Magalluf is Majorca's trump card when it comes to nightlife – crazy foam parties and pumping beats reign supreme. If you're looking to get away from the flashing lights, Cala Millor and Santa Ponsa are a bit more chilled, with a good quota of bars and pubs and plenty of entertainment for the kids.
