The Spanish sun is calling – Majorca holidays are a cocktail of eye-catching beaches, ancient history and UNESCO-approved mountain scenery.

Palma

You’ll find Palma, Majorca’s capital, on the south-western side of the island. The city’s been around since the 13th century, so sights include an 800-year-old Gothic cathedral. There’s also an Arabian-style quarter, complete with Instagram-worthy, pastel-coloured houses. The city’s great for shopping, too, boasting everything from swanky boutiques to purse-friendly souvenir shops. Bed down in Playa de Palma or Palma Nova and you’ll have the beach on your doorstep while being within easy reach of the city.

Alcudia

Elsewhere on the island, there are plenty more beach resorts to go around. One of the most popular on the north coast is Alcudia, which is blessed with a bunch of beautiful sandy stretches. Alcudia has a chilled-out nightlife scene, with the focus on seafront bars and restaurants. By day, when you’re not sunning yourself on Mediterranean-style white sand, you’ll find a selection of Roman ruins to explore around town.

Serra de Tramuntana Mountains

This sometimes-snow-capped mountain range blankets Majorca’s north-west, and has a landscape that looks like it belongs in the Swiss Alps rather than the Balearic Islands. The area’s recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a protected nature reserve, too. Roads weave their way around the mountain slopes, so every time you turn a corner you get a different view of Majorca’s wild, inland scenery.

Best time to go to Majorca

By April, Majorca is well into spring, so you can expect a very pleasant 19°C on the thermometer. In summer, it gets hot. The average temperature is 29°C, the sun stays out for nearly 11 hours every day and rain is almost unheard of. It starts to cool down in October, but even then, the mercury can still reach 23°C.
