Majorca, also spelled Mallorca, is the biggest of the Balearics Islands and the favourite summer destination for many Europeans.
Visited by nearly 10 million people every year and with an average temperature of 18ºC, the island offers many different things to do, and not only lay by the sea at any of its uncountable sandy beaches.
Palma de Mallorca masterpiece is the gothic Cathedral, also called La Seu, situated in the old city centre behind the walls and facing the Mediterranean Sea. Around there you’ll find also other interesting places to visit, such as the city council at the “Plaza de Cort” square, the Arab baths, or La Almudaina.
Those who enjoy going out will find not only many local restaurants, but also international ones and many pubs and nightclubs: Palma is a multicultural city which caters to everyone.
But the island has more to offer than Palma. There are plenty of small villages where people still knows how to take live slowly such as Sóller, Pollensa, and Felanitx, which are the perfect example of what’s been called “the other Mallorca”.
Anyway, if what you want is simply sun & fun, Magaluf, Palma Nova, Alcudia or Cala Bona will be perfect for you. There you can find many hotels and apartments at reasonable rates, most of them located by or near the beach.
