Majorca offers plenty of choice for visitors. You can stay close to the popular party spots or escape to a tranquil resort town that feels worlds away from civilisation.
1. Alcudia This town is a wonderful spot for combining culture with a beach holiday. Bask on the nearby golden sands and explore the charming Old Town's great bars, restaurants, and Roman ruins. Hike the trail at S'Albufera Natural Park to see roaming cattle and beautiful birds.
2. Santa Ponsa Head to Santa Ponsa for fun in the sun. Swim or sunbathe on the beach, which is surrounded by a gorgeous mountain range. To stretch your legs after a few hours of sunbathing, walk to the Puig de sa Morisca, a free-to-enter archaeological park. Renting a villa in Santa Ponsa offers the ultimate tranquil beach break.
3. Palma de Majorca The island's capital, Palma de Majorca, has easy access to beaches by bus and plenty of attractions. Walk along the marina and you'll find many wonderful options for lunch, or up to Bellver Castle to see the city from above. Majorca Cathedral, in the town's centre, is also worth a visit. Venture down Passeig del Born, the main street, where there are markets, traditional shops, and several restaurants.
4. Pollenca This small town is wonderful for a quiet trip away. With villa rentals here, you can experience living like a local with strolls and lunches in the main square. Grab your walking shoes, camera, and picnic, and take an afternoon to follow the Cami Vell del Far trail to the lighthouse.
