Destination Guide: Majorca
The beautiful island of Majorca, or Mallorca as it is also known, the largest of the Balearics, offers the perfect combination of action alongside rest and relaxation.
Nature lovers shouldn’t miss the almond trees in blossom, or some of the amazing bird life the island is home to.
A short drive away you can wander round port towns, such as Port Andratx, enjoying its boutique shops and bars and pretty marina; or Inca, the island’s largest town with bustling market and leather goods for sale. Then there’s Majorca’s capital, La Palma, ideal for a night out or a weekend jolly.
For outdoorsy types, there is an embarrassment of stunning beaches, from the famous Alcudia beach to the quieter well-kept secrets such as Cala Tuent way up on the north-west side. From snorkelling to cycling, there’s an activity to suit fun-seekers of every age and ability, too.
Best places to eat and drink in Majorca
With Roman and African influences as well as its traditional Spanish roots, food in Majorca can be really interesting. Obviously, you’ll enjoy great, and very fresh, seafood, as well as local produce such as almonds, and you’ll have to try at least one paella, which the island is famous for. There’s hot debate among the restaurants about the best recipes and methods. Best try them all perhaps?!
For tapas nothing like anything you’ll see in the UK, head to Como en Casa in Alcudia. For a real gastronomic experience try the very modern and impressive Es Moli d’En Bou in Sa Coma, owned by Michelin-starred chef Tomeu Caldentey. It has a brilliant tasting menu and is considered to be one of Spain’s top restaurants.
Best time to visit Majorca
Spring is a treat, when the blossom and other flora and fauna are at their best. July and August can get very hot but if high temperatures and lazing by a pool are what you want you’ll love it. Temperatures drop a bit in September and October so that can be a really pleasant time to go as well.
What we love about Majorca
The western coast is on Majorca much quieter than the rest of the island. It has rugged mountainous parts, good for walking, and also many of the best eateries. And will you ever feel like you’ve deserved a great meal after a morning’s hiking!
