See to believe. This is how you’ll feel after visiting some of Majorca’s beaches and coves.

So you also struggled to find space for an ensaimada on your last trip to Majorca? Take advantage of your island holiday to enjoy traditional Mediterranean cuisine and the best local dishes. Before you leave, be sure to try frito mallorquín (sautéed meat and vegetables), tumblet (a delicious vegetarian dish with aubergine and potatoes) and coca de trampó flatbread, to name a few.
Biking, snorkelling, hiking, canyoning, sailing, playing golf… There are so many options! Thanks to the fantastic temperatures year-round, outdoor and water sports are one of Majorca’s strengths. Our tip: Dive into the water at Cala Sant Pere cove in Alcudia and enjoy the best snorkelling experience imaginable.
One thing that defines Majorca is its 100% Mediterranean culture: museums, galleries and exhibit halls with the best art of the Balearic Islands. If you love contemporary and modern art, be sure to visit CCA Andratx in Andratx to view the contemporary photographs, sculptures and paintings. Alcudia features the Yannick & Ben Jakober Sculpture Park and Palma is home to the Juan March Foundation and its important works by artists such as Dalí, Miró and Juan Gris.

If plans with kids are a priority during holidays in Majorca, the island has all the activities you can imagine. There are theme parks, child-friendly beaches (such as Es Trenc, which is fairly shallow) and also natural parks such as Parc Natural de S’Albufera.

Majorca’s history dates back thousands of years. Although it’s hard to believe, there are archaeological remains of prehistoric settlements near Calviá that include funerary items and naveta tombs. This extensive history is evident in the many monuments located throughout the island, including Palma Cathedral, Bellver castle (a 14th century castle that stands out for its circular structure) and Sóller railway that offers an interesting tour in a historic train.
Palma wouldn’t exist without Majorca and vice versa. The capital of the Balearic Islands has become a summer icon with countless activities for the holiday of a lifetime. From trendy nightclubs with the most famous DJs in the world to the best social scene, such as the popular Noche de San Juan festivities.
