The best beaches are in Majorca

As far as Balearic Islands 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

Each resort has its own patch of beautiful beachfront. They don’t tend to get too touristy either, unless you’re around the old town of Chania. Prepare to chill out or even watch in awe as locals take on water sports. Fancy setting sail on a boat trip too? No problem.  See all beaches (57)
