Majorca - The versatile isle of the Balearics

Majorca certainly lives up to its tag as the ‘versatile isle of the Balearics’, mainly in part to its vast array of offerings. Magaluf and Palma Nova are neighboring resorts hugely popular with younger people looking for a more ‘lively’ holiday. Magaluf in particular is teeming with bars, discos and nightclubs which ensures a wild time if that’s your desire. Palma Nova is a short distance away from Magaluf and more popular with families and couples but who also have the option of a more vibrant atmosphere if they so desire.

Palma de Majorca

The star of the show however is the capital City, Palma. A typical cultural City with its stylish old town, wonderful restaurants and vibrant night-life – Palma certainly ticks all the boxes if it’s a bit of everything you want.

This old town, a Roman city centuries ago, boasts a world famous Gothic cathedral whose first foundations were laid way back in the 13th century and took over 400 years to complete, such is its magnificent splendor. Palma is also home to a superb atmospheric area strewn with museums and ancient palaces, ideal for the more artistic of people. However, if that’s not your cup of tea, then the modern part of Palma has a vast array of designer clothing outlets, stylish eateries, bars & cafés to keep you very much occupied. Then at some stage, be sure to take a walk down to the City’s Marina, where the luxurious yachts float proudly upon the sparkling water beneath the ominous gaze of the ancient cathedral.
