Things to do in Majorca
There are plenty of things to do in Majorca no matter your interests or your budget.
A walk around Palma Old Town highlights some of the islands cultural history. The narrow streets with beautiful juliet balconies, lead to the impressive Sa Seu Cathedral, one of Majorca's most iconic buildings. If you want to get away from the pool or beach for a bit of culture, this gothic cathedral will leave you gawping at its sheer size.
If you're a fan of the outdoors, Majorca is home to the Serra de Tramuntana, a mountain range and UNESCO World Heritage Site in the west of the island, and about an hour and a half drive from Palma. The stunning scenery from some of the peaks and view points makes the hiking and biking trails well worth the effort.
Where to stay in Majorca
The combination of great eateries, Old Town culture and nightlife make the main city of Palma an ideal location for a short holiday or city break. Hotels along the Avinguda de Gabriel Roca offer rooms with superb views over the marina.
If it's beach life you're after, venture further out to holiday hotspots like Alcudia in the north or S'illot in the east. Althought they may take a little longer from the airport the beaches in both are beautiful.
If you're after nightlife, try the popular holiday resort of Magaluf, south of Palma. Whilst having a reputation as a messy night out, there are still some great bars perfect for relaxing in with a beer or wine.
