A Mediterranean favourite
Majorca’s always been a reliable choice – one of those places you can book, safe in the knowledge you’re on to a winner. But in the last decade or so, it’s gone big league, with celebs proclaiming it perfect second-home territory. Thankfully, though, you don’t need their bank balance to appreciate this Med classic.
Laid-back beach resorts
In terms of resorts, places like Alcudia and Puerto Pollensa in the north, and Cala Bona in the east, offer a concentrated dose of sands, bars and restaurants. Talking of restaurants, Puerto Pollensa has some of the best seafood joints going. Another biggie on the east coast is Sa Coma, which teams a good beach with a safari park and a handful of first-rate golf courses.
Stylish cities and party towns
Switch to the southeast coast and you’ve got places like Cala d’Or, which has a seven cove line-up. It also counts galleries, boutiques and waterfront restaurants among its best features. Just as stylish – if not more so – is Majorca’s capital, which squeezes cocktail haunts and designer boutiques into its narrow streets. As for the west coast, that’s where Majorca really lets its hair down. Magaluf and Palma Nova promise neon nights and cafés that do a mean recovery fry-up.
