Mallorca - or Majorca as it's also spelt - is blessed with beautiful beaches, an infinite stockpile of fresh seafood and more than 300 days of glorious sunshine a year. Which is probably why it's one of Europe’s favourite playgrounds. Though in recent decades the influx of tourists and real estate development here has left some of its landscape looking more like a strip mall than an island paradise, there are still quiet coves and Moorish-era architecture to behold and appreciate.
Just look beyond the capital Palma’s all-night bars and all-day English breakfast specials and you will discover Mallorca’s cultural bonanza, such as the stunning Capella de Santa Agnés and majestic Almudaina Palace.
Families travel to Mallorca to escape the winter blues - but summer in the sun-washed island is equally rammed with sunbathers and party-goers alike.
Drive down any of Palma’s main streets and you’ll find Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Germans, and Thai restaurants. For simpler, down home cooking explore Mallorca’s outlier villages to sample locally cured meats and varying regional liquors called hierbas.
