5 Reasons to visit Majorca

I think I speak for us all when I say I am ready to see the back of winter. The weather here is miserable and raining. With that being said this is the perfect time to get holiday planning. I know I am. I have been looking at potential trips and I am currently researching Holidays in Spain. I have fallen in love with Spain after visiting Anisa and Barcelona. I am on the lookout for a new Spanish place to travel to.

I have decided I would like to go to Majorca. I have put my research cap on and got down to the nitty-gritty of what to do in Majorca and I thought it would be a great idea to share my findings with you all. I have never been to Majorca and you know before I book any holiday I like to do extensive research.

First I need to mention Majorca and Mallorca are the same place. British people tend to use Majorca. Spanish use the Mallorca. I am not sure why. I just wanted to point this out.

So today We are going to talk about the 5 reasons you need to book a holiday to Majorca.

1. The weather

Majorca is in the Balearic Islands of Spain. The weather there is nice and warm. With the summer months seeing high 30s and the winter months seeing lows in the teens. Right now as I write this they have a beautiful sunny day with 20 degrees. To compare it is 4 degrees here in the Scottish highlands in February. Majorca also has a very low chance of rain. Making it the perfect place for a summer or winter trip.


2. The beaches

Being an island Majorca has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and has even won awards to support this. Majorca has over 300 beaches in fact with crystal clear waters and white sand, this is any sun worshipper's dream come true. If you are into snorkelling or diving Majcora will not disappoint.

There is a range of options when it comes to beaches to visit. If you are looking for a beach with a resort vibe try Alcudia Beach. Here you have your typical beautiful beach with access to toilets, bars and food. Making it perfect for families.

For a more unquiet option try Calo des Moro which has cliffs to either side. This used to be a hidden gem beach but it has become popular and worth a treat to take in its beauty.

3. The beautiful villages

Unlike other Mediterranean islands, Majorca has not lost its character. It has beautiful little villages which are loaded with old Spanish charm and culture.

Step back in time and head to Valldemossa, Sóller and Fornalutx. These are some of the most beautiful places in Majorca. To get to Sóller you need to take a train ride which is not only beautiful but a wonderful way to take in the Spanish countryside. This has become a tourist attraction in itself.

Valldemossa is said to be like a time capsule. With a stunning Cathusian monastery being a must-visit attraction. Walk along the cobbled street and just enjoy the wonderful atmosphere in these beautiful traditional Spanish villages.

4. Palma de Mallorca

Being the capital of Majorca this is a must-see city. It is crammed with cultural heritage and you will not be disappointed with a trip here. One of the biggest attractions is the beautiful cathedral La Seu. It is the second-tallest gothic cathedral in Europe.

Another must-see is the summer residence of the Spanish royal family, the Royal palace of Almudaina. It dates back to the 14th century and is full of historical importance and definitely worth a trip.

Like most big cities Palma has wonderful shopping and some of the best restaurants in Majorca. You will not be disappointed with the food. A trip to one of palmas food markets is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

5. The nightlife

Majorica is world-renowned for its party towns of Magaluf and S'Arenal. Here you can find world-famous DJs and performers and some of the world's best bars and nightclubs.

Magaluf and S'Arenal are the places to be if you are looking to dance the night away. These towns are built around the party scene and fully set up for you to have a good time.

But do not worry if this is not your scene there are lots of more relaxing resorts and villages to head to in Majorca to find a more tranquil holiday.
