The best beaches are in Majorca

As far as Balearic Island Holidays go, Majorca has the lion's share of beaches with white, sandy coastlines running for hundreds of kilometres at resorts such as Cala Bona and C'an Pastilla. 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.

Balearic 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 City, has a magnificent gothic cathedral, merging plenty of history with cosmopolitan culture.

Majorca's waterparks

There are six waterparks in Majorca. Aqualand in S’Arenal is great for families with kids, and even comes with a mini zoo! Wave House in Magalluf has high-octane wave machines where you can hit the surf in style. At Palma Aquarium, you can get face-to-face with real-life sharks and octopuses.

Beaches

For a classic day on the beach, head to the sweeping Golden Bay – close to Mellieha, it’s gifted with soft, dusty sand and shallow water that’s suited to paddling. Mellieha Bay has a great stretch, too. So if you’re after a bit of choice, Malta’s got it in spades.

Sights

Malta’s bursting with historical sights, from mysterious temples to the palazzos of the walled city of Mdina. In Valletta, there’s plenty of architecture left over from the days of the crusaders, and perfectly-preserved war rooms from the Second World War. It’s a fantastic site for historic ruins and blemishes of bygone times.

A day out in Palma

Activities

Families flock to wild waterparks, with one major draw sitting between Sliema and St Paul’s Bay. And watersports are big, especially in Qawra and Bugibba, where a sheltered bay keeps the waves really calm for water-skiing and banana boats. Exploring the little towns and waterside paths is essential.

Eating and drinking

Traditional meals here are all about freshly-netted seafood. Most Maltese places do their own version of a tasty fish pie, keeping homely touches on tap. And if you’re in search of bags of flavour, garlic-packed stews are big around here. It’s all finished off with the local tipple – prickly-pear liqueur.
