Where to Stay

Majorca has affordable accommodation across the island

Many visitors to the island opt to stay in Palma, the island’s biggest town. Palma is a small city and you’ll never be too far from the picturesque old town of the city. It resembles a more relaxed Barcelona, complete with excellent nightlife options and intriguing historic sites. The beautiful waterfront area is particularly popular with tourists. The town of Manacor also attracts many visitors and is home to one of the island’s busiest street markets. Tourist attractions such as the famous Caves of Drach are nearby. The charming village of Valldemossa, located on the western side of the island, is worth a stay in. It is home to the Royal Charterhouse of Valldemossa, a 14th century monastery. On the western side of the island, the waterfront town of Cala Millor has been attracting tourists since the 1930s. It is the largest tourist development on Majorca and there are 61 hotels in the town at present. There are also plenty of holiday homes in Majorca to be even closer to the nature.

Things to Do

From crystal clear waters to an ancient Old Town -  Majorca is full of surprises

Majorca is famed for its many beaches that have clean white sand and crystal clear waters. If you want to avoid the crowds, head to one of the less developed beaches such as Es Carbo or Son Serra De Marina. The capital of Palma is certainly worth a visit, with a famous cathedral it is a pleasant and interesting city centre to explore. Make sure to check out the many restaurants there, and try some of the local food such as ‘sobrasada’, a spicy sausage made of pork and paprika, or the breakfast sweet ‘ensaimada’, a spiral-shaped bun you can only get on Majorca. The seafood paella is a recommended dish too. Trips to to the large salt marsh of S'Albufera are popular - it’s near the town Alcudia. Here you´ll see many bird species including warblers, heron, ducks and waders.

Eating and Drinking

Majorca has a buzzing nightlife and good restaurant scene

Majorca has a nightlife with something for everyone to enjoy - you can find high-end bars and nightclubs to pool parties wherever you are on the island. Top spots include Farah's Discoteca which is a smart nightclub in Cala d'Or - it’s worth going there to see the lavish surroundings and great views of the strip from the top floor. Bauxa Club is a vibrant club which plays a mix of music and attracts a wide clientele. Local boy, tennis star Rafael Nadal has been known to party here. Pacha Nightclub is a not-to-be-missed nightclub, it features well known DJ’s regularly but is only open during summer months. The club is spread over three floors and has the usual terraces, restaurant, VIP areas, and three rooms of house, funk and chill-out music. Aside from excellent partying options, there are also over 2,000 restaurants to choose from across the island.

Getting Around

Palma de Mallorca is an important transport hub for those wishing to explore the local islands

Flights go to Palma de Mallorca airport from many European cities, and also from the neighbouring islands of Menorca and Ibiza. Flights from these islands cost double what it would cost to take the ferry however, so is not really worth it for the hour saved. Once on the island you can avail of the bus network - take note that some of the long distance routes only run infrequently. There is a limited train network too, but your best option may be to hire a car if you want to explore the island. It is best to book a car in advance, as rentals directly at the airport can be much higher in price than pre-arranged bookings. The island is relatively small and easy to get around so you will always be in reach of your apartment or villa no matter where on the island you are.
