The pretty resort of Puerto Pollensa was once a traditional fishing village and has retained much of its charm. Relax with a cocktail on the long sandy beach, explore the shops and bars of the old town or enjoy dinner at one of the resort’s many restaurants. The Mar Senses Puerto Pollensa is one of our most popular adult-only 18+ resorts. Set just 100m from the golden sandy beach, there’s an outdoor pool and indoor whirlpool as well as a spa and wellness area with a steam room and sauna, guaranteed to leave you feeling relaxed. After dinner at the à la carte restaurant, you can watch the sunset over a glass of local fino.
Although Cala d’Or is a popular family destination, it’s also a great spot for couples or adults-only breaks if you avoid the school holiday season. Its east coast location means you’ll get plenty of sunshine and beautiful cove beaches, and the marina in Cala Longa is the best place to enjoy some al fresco dining on your trip. Check in to the SENTIDO Tucan, just 50m from Cala Gran beach and you can unwind in luxurious surroundings just minutes from the shops, bars and restaurants in the resort centre. Or why not book a stay at the Sunprime Monsuau? This adults-only paradise boasts a well-equipped wellness area with Balinese beds and a range of fitness classes to choose from. If you’d rather relax, there’s a lounge terrace and a rooftop terrace bar for sunset drinks.
Majorca isn’t just a great beach holiday destination, it’s also a popular choice for city breaks. The island’s capital, Palma is the ideal place to head for a romantic break for two and there’s plenty to keep you entertained. A well as the impressive marina with its outdoor restaurants, you’ll find a range of shops where you can buy everything from souvenirs to local arts and crafts. While you’re here, make sure you check out the Gothic cathedral and Bellvar Castle on a stroll around Palma’s old town, and don’t miss Almudaina Palace, once the official residence of the Spanish Royal Family
