An island it may be, but there are so many opportunities to see other attractions apart from the fabulous sandy coves, beaches and clear blue sea. Here are a few ideas to get you started on your Majorca holidays…..
Sightseeing, excursions, boat trips, water sports, golf and cycling are just some of the many things to do on the island of Majorca.
Hiring a car is an ideal way to experience the differences in terrain this small island has to offer. In the centre - the agricultural plain, to the west - mountains, whilst to the south you'll find the buzzing cosmopolitan city. Visit the charming inland villages to get a real feel for the rural life of the locals.
What makes this island paradise even more appealing these days is the array of top quality Hotels in Majorca available.
A day trip to Palma is often on the ‘to-do’ list of holidaymakers. It is the main port on the island of Majorca and capital city of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands. Palma is famous for La Seu, its vast cathedral originally built on a previous mosque.
If you want some splash tastic fun or just a cool down in the heat of summer then one of the Islands water parks is a great day out. Aqualand L’Arena is one of Europe's biggest water parks located in beautiful gardens near L’Arenal resort. Western Water Park is home to the highest slide on Majorca ‘The Beast’. Hidropark is a fabulous day out for visitors to the North of the island. Marineland was the first dolphinarium in Spain.
Majorca is full of first-class golf courses, some designed by real masters of the game. There are golf courses and hotel accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. With such a diverse choice of excellent golf courses, this sun-kissed island has become an important landmark on the golf tourism circuit. The Island currently features 21 golf courses and there are plans to open some more in the coming years.
With a flat terrain, rolling hills, long climbs and diverse scenery cyclists are offered the perfect environment along with pleasant temperatures all year. The Island offers some of the most impressive, demanding and leisurely rides making it a popular destination for amateurs through to professional cyclists. Alcudia is a hive of activity during the cycling season, with many cycle friendly hotels that offer bike maintenance, secure storage and regular organised rides. The Playa de Palma offers mainly flat routes with the odd hilly area for example Randa offers something more challenging.
