Mallorca Holiday

Maybe you’d like a luxury villa in Mallorca close in an exclusive location, or perhaps you might enjoy being near to a big, family-friendly beach if you’re travelling with little ones. Whatever you’re looking for, you can be sure to find it on the island.

Mallorca is off the coast of eastern Spain and has long been popular with holidaymakers for its warm climate and glorious sunshine. In some parts, you’ll find a great party atmosphere, with the beach lined with clubs and bars, while other sections are quiet and secluded – perfect if you’re after a relaxing getaway.

The island is also steeped in history and if you explore, you can find Roman ruins and all manner of archaeological sites and museums. But as well as the cultural draws, a huge attraction for visitors to Mallorca is its vast beaches.

If it’s the partying you’re travelling for, you’re sure to enjoy a trip to the popular resort of Magalluf. The location is a haven for Brits looking to let loose and boasts 900 metres of sand lined with clubs, bars and restaurants. With an average of more than 300 days of sunshine every year, it’s also a great spot for topping up your tan. And if you’re an adventurous sort, there’s plenty to keep you busy. The beach at Magalluf offers a wide range of watersports, such as parasailing and waterskiing, so prepare for a soaking.

And if that hasn’t burnt off all your energy, you might like to head to Formentor beach for some more action on the water. Also known as Cala Pi de sa Posada, the beach is situated in an exclusive resort popular with celebrities, so keep your eyes peeled. Make use of the sunbeds on the sand to dry off after you’ve tried your hand on the waves with some lessons at the nearby surfing school.

The calm sea at the water’s edge makes it a great spot for paddling and the beach stretches for one kilometre so you’ll have plenty of places to choose from when propping up your deck chair. There’s also a mooring point at the beach, so why not take a day trip on a boat over to Puerto Pollensa Marina and explore more of the island?

You’ll find Puerto Pollensa at the northernmost tip of Mallorca, not too far from the popular resort of Alcudia. Both locations boast great beaches and are close enough to visit in one day if you like. For a long time there was no beach in Puerto Pollensa but one was created artificially relatively recently and it has since become a big hit. At one kilometre long and 30 metres wide, there’s plenty of room here, making it particularly popular with families. Close by is the marina and it’s here you can try out sailing or scuba diving, among other activities.

Next, head over to the beach at Alcudia, where you’ll find the atmosphere is relaxed. The resort is in stark contrast with thriving clubbers’ paradise areas like Magalluf as you’ll find it’s much more family-friendly. There’s also loads to keep history buffs entertained here, with Roman ruins to explore, and along the coast there are numerous seafood restaurants, so make sure you try out some of the local delicacies. If you’re hoping for a taste of authentic Spain, you’ll find it in Alcudia, especially if you visit the Sunday market after enjoying a relaxing morning lounging on the beach.
