One of the four largest Balearic Islands, an archipelago off the East Coast of Spain, Majorca has long been considered one of the party capitals of Europe. While this is a well-founded reputation, there is so much more to the island than its thrilling nightlife. Circled by lengthy golden beaches, it is the ideal escape for those who need their yearly fix of summer sunshine or wish to try their hand at water-sports, but Majorca also boasts superb cultural destinations, and so sightseeing there is also a must, with numerous ancient palaces, beautiful old villages and splendid cathedrals to visit.
Naturally, the bars and clubs of Magaluf are worth a visit if you just can’t wait to let your hair down and go wild. For those looking for a more chilled-out experience, there are gorgeous old treasures throughout the island such as quaint Pollença in the North West, a rural town that hosts many local fairs and festivals throughout the year. If you love to try local cuisine when you visit somewhere new, Majorca boasts numerous open vineyards, olive mills and farms that you can visit to learn about the local produce and try a few samples! Venture to Palma if you fancy exploring the island’s retail offerings, or taking in the city’s many fascinating museums and galleries such as the Museum of Spanish Contemporary Art, the Toy Museum or the breath-taking Bellver Castle complete with its own beautiful public gardens and views across the city and beyond.
