Majorca Winter Holidays 2020/2021
Holidays in Majorca offer an astonishing variety of things to see and do. Non-stop partying in Magaluf. Walking the broad plains and rolling countryside of Es Pla. And long tapas lunches in Cosmopolitan Palma. There's something for everyone in fabulous Majorca.
If you like to explore, holidays in Majorca are right up your street. Palma, the island's capital, offers a wealth of sights to be discovered. Check out some of the museums. Walk round the old cathedrals and castles. Or just kick back by the harbourside. But it's not all about Palma. From glass bottom boat rides in Calas de Majorca, to the peaceful botanical gardens of Soller, there's never a dull moment.
Majorca’s the one to beat for beaches thanks to over 100 spots to sink into. Head south to Palma Nova for a long, prom-backed stretch. Further north in Acludia, enjoy a relaxed pace and an epic backdrop.
Did you know? The name of the island comes from an old Latin phrase 'insula maior? that means 'larger island', as Mallorca is the largest island in all of Spain. Gradually the phrase was mispronounced and the island became known as Mallorca. The british often call the island Majorca, whilst everyone else calls it Mallorca - there appears to be no reason for this other than the british love of the letter J rather than L!
This island's the biggest of the Balearics, so there's more than enough to keep you busy.
