Why Visit Majorca – Reasons to Come to the Balearic Jewel

Spain is one of the most popular holiday hot spots with tourists from around the world. Graced with idyllic beaches and over 5,000 miles of coastline Spain is a convenient location that is home to a thriving tourist industry.

Majorca holidays

As one of Britain’s most travelled to destinations for sun, sea and sand Spain has much more to offer than just beaches. Just 120 miles off the coast from Barcelona is Majorca. Holidays to Majorca are extremely popular with tourists because it is an authentic island that offers coves, plains, mountains and marines for all to enjoy. But don’t worry – it has plenty of great beaches too.

The charm of Majorca is not just in its stunning sceneries but the sea cliffs, valleys and mountains give the exploratory tourist plenty to do. From mountain biking on glorious cycling trails to scuba diving in the crystal clear waters, to playing a round of golf there is surprisingly something for everyone on this small island.

Despite the size and popularity of the island, Majorca never feels overcrowded or targeted at tourists. Whilst some places in peninsular Spain are full of British bars and restaurants Majorca offers a traditional Spanish experience with established Spanish tapas bars and traditions. Of course if you want to experience the ‘home from home’ experience you can find that on Majorca too.

An appealing factor of Majorca is it is one of Europe’s cheaper choices of holiday. Whether looking for all inclusive holidays or a B&B, Majorca provides the ideal holiday experience for holidaymakers to soak up the sun of the Mediterranean for less.

For a family fun holiday Majorca offers a host of different activities. From sunbathing on one of the island’s glorious beaches to horse riding in the mountains, this holiday destination suits tourists of all ages and interests.

The Balearic Islands are otherwise known as the ‘jewel of the Mediterranean’ and Majorca certainly lives up to this reputation. Majorca is just one of four Balearic Islands. Majorca neighbours Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera. Each of these destinations offers a different experience. For example, Ibiza is recognised as the party hotspot of Europe as it attracts world-class DJs to perform in one of the many famous nightclubs throughout the year.

Menorca displays spectacular scenery and landscapes to delight travellers; the history on this island attracts visitors that take an interest in the cultural sights and archaeology.

Formentera is the smallest of the four Balearic Islands and it is just 12 miles in length. Formentera is more popular as a day trip destination as opposed to a place to go for a week or two stay. The clear waters and pure white sand is attractive and as the island is remote it is a quiet and peaceful destination in comparison to the hedonistic nature of Ibiza.

Majorca certainly seems to be the ideal balance between an isolated and overcrowded holiday hotspot and a relaxing Mediterranean retreat. It boasts splendid beaches to laze the day away on, but also fun activities are available to satisfy the avid adventurer.
