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 Playa de Muro 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.
