On the south-west coast, popular resort Palma Nova and the area around it is where you’ll find Majorca’s long powdery white beaches. For ancient sites like Roman ruins head to Alcudia in the north-east. While Mum and Dad wander the streets of the old town shopping for bargains, the kids will love splashing around at the waterpark. Or if you’re looking to get away from it all, the east coast is dotted with small cove resorts, like Calas de Mallorca. Take a stroll along the clifftops to properly take in the stunning sea views.

You'll find the most dramatic stretch of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range between the resort of Sóller and Lluc monastery – this is Majorca at its most spectacular. Some of the most fascinating natural attractions in Majorca are its underground caverns. The most famous are the Dragon Caves near Porto Cristo. Head inland to Es Pla for a rural landscape of vineyards, olive trees and almond groves, dotted with old stone farmhouses. The Torrent de Pareis river valley at Sa Calobra on the coast north of Puerto Sóller has been dubbed Majorca's Grand Canyon.

The locals like to eat late, and a lot of places to go in Majorca don’t even open until 1.30pm for lunch and 8.30pm for dinner. Most meals start with one of Majorca’s famous soups - sopas mallorquinas, a thick and filling vegetable broth. Another popular dish is the Majorcan version of paella called arroz brut. The difference is that is uses chicken and pork rather than seafood. Locals like to wash down their tapas with a dry, chilled sherry, known as fino. For something a little bit different, try a glass of the local almond milk orxata.

Famous for being one of the best places in Majorca for a night out, Magaluf is home to BCM, one of Europe’s largest clubs which plays host to the world’s top DJs, singers and dance acts. It can hold over 4000 party-goers, so you are guaranteed a fun atmosphere. There are still plenty of things for kids to do in Majorca once the sun has set – family shows like Pirates’ Adventure have been entertaining crowds for years with their acrobatics, stunts and costumes. For a more relaxed night out, sip cocktails in one of the glitzy bars lining Portals Nous marina.

Majorca is best for

Scenery lovers: Cruise the coast, followed by train and tram rides through the Tramuntana mountains to Sóller, on the Orange Express.

Families: Pirates’ Adventure – this unique show includes swashbuckling fun, a tasty meal and pirate’s punch.

Celebrity spotters: Guessing who the yachts belong to in Portals Nous marina.

Weather and climate

Majorca enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters. Spring is a great time to visit if you’d like to explore the island with fewer crowds,  while summer is always a popular season with visitors thanks to glorious highs of 30 (°C) and little chance of rain. Book your holiday for the autumn for slightly cooler weather in the mid-20s, or come in winter when the weather is still pleasant and the resort is at its quietest.


Getting around

By taxi: You’ll find lots of taxi ranks in Majorca’s main resorts. A green light indicates that they’re available. It’s a good idea to check the fare before you set off, but all taxis do have meters.

By hire car: One of the best ways to explore the whole island is by hire car, especially for taking in the dramatic Sierra de Tramuntana mountain scenery between Sóller and Lluc monastery.


Events

For early-birds: Hotels in Majorca reopen for the summer season around Easter time, so if you’re an early-bird spend ‘Semana Santa’ with the locals at colourful processions all over the island.

Summer: Clubbing In June the clubs start to fill up. The one-ticket MCP pass gets you into all the best nights.

Majorca Rocks: Throughout the summer catch the world’s biggest bands performing under the stars at the Magaluf’s Majorca Rocks festival.

Top tip: Pick up a copy of the Majorca Daily Bulletin from a newsagent in resort – its English events listings mean you won’t miss a thing on your Majorca holiday.
