Luxury Majorca Holidays

Beach chic and rural retreats

Majorca

Majorca has been a holiday favourite for years, pulling in everyone from royalty to movie stars. It's easy to see why they love the island, too. Wide bays and tucked-away coves are carved out of the coastline, and come with sugary sands and glass-clear waters. Inland, pine-cloaked mountains rise up and traditional villages and hamlets cling to their sides.

The island is easy to explore by car. The capital, Palma, is well worth a visit, with its Gothic cathedral, shuttered townhouses and fantastic tapas bars. Don’t miss the 10th-century Arab baths, set in serene Moorish gardens with tinkly fountains and tree-shaded benches.

The Tramuntana Mountains that spread across the western edge of the island are perfect for walkers, their wooded slopes hiding the honey-stone artists’ villages of Deia and Valldemossa. Down on the coast, meanwhile, stop for coffee (or sangria) at chic waterside towns like Illetas, Port Soller and Puerto Pollensa.

Why not try Majorca as a twin-centre holiday? Driving around is easy and staying in two different areas is a great way to explore more of the island.

Ensaymadas are a typical Majorcan treat – make sure you go out and try the real deal from a local bakery. They can be served with a sweet pumpkin, cream or apricot filling, or you can have them plain with a dusting of powdered sugar.

Destinations in Majorca
Alcudia
North-easterly Alcudia balances between two horseshoe bays. Museums and medieval monuments top the old town, while the modern centre lays out a marina and golf club by the beach.
Bay Of Pollensa
The Bay of Pollensa sweeps out from Alcudia to Puerto Pollensa. This north-easterly stretch of coastline combines rugged headlands, sandy beaches and a backdrop of fields, forests and orchards.
Cala San Vicente
Little Cala San Vicente is one of the most northerly villages in Majorca, easing sea-view hotels and restaurants between rocky mountains and a forked coastline of sandy coves.
Ca'n Picafort
Ca’n Picafort sets out smart hotels and prom-side restaurants by Playa de Muro – the biggest beach in Majorca. The blonde, sandy stretch unrolls along this north-east coast to neighbouring Alcudia.
Cas Catala

Cas Catala is a stylish seaside suburb that goes down well with royals and Hollywood stars. It’s just around the corner from the Majorcan capital of Palma, too. 

Costa d'En Blanes
Costa d’en Blanes climbs down from the hills just south-west of the grand Majorcan capital, Palma. It’s far removed from city life, serving up relaxed beachside hotels and marina-view restaurants.
Deia
Artists’ houses, a hilltop church, flowering café terraces, almond groves – Deia must be one of the prettiest villages in mountainous northern Majorca. The finishing touch? Pint-sized Cala Deia beach.
Illetas
Illetes rests south-west of Cala Major, where sandy coves chip the coastline and pine-topped islands float offshore. There’s also a designer golf course that’s a favourite with celebrities and royals.
Palma
Instead of flying into Palma and rushing off to a beach resort, pause in Majorca’s sophisticated capital city. A Gothic cathedral, Michelin-starred restaurants and honeyed sandstone squares star.
Playa De Muro
Playa de Muro is the longest beach in Majorca, stretching for six miles along Alcudia Bay. It ranges from hotel-lined sands to the wild sandy trails of S’Albufera Natural Park.
Pollensa
Pollensa takes shelter in the bumpy countryside of northern Majorca. The town packs a cultural punch, dishing up a crumbling Roman bridge, café-sprinkled old town and green-shuttered artists’ houses.
Portals Nous
Just along the coast from Palma, Portals Nous delivers chill-out lounge bars and clifftop hotels, as well as a petite sandy beach tucked into a cove.
Porto Petro
The pine-coated coastline around fishing village Porto Petro constantly twists and turns, dishing up gold-sand coves, clifftop hotels and sheltered harbours. It’s right next door to Cala d’Or, too.
Port Soller
Sleepy Port Soller is caught between a sandy bay and the northern Tramuntana Mountains. An antique wooden tram runs from the waterfront to the postcard-pretty old town of Soller.
Puerto Pollensa
Puerto Pollensa is a few miles east of the Roman village of Pollensa. The palm-brushed promenade serves up hotels and restaurants on one side and a beach on the other.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Majorca is around 2 hours 15 minutes.

When to go

Majorca starts warming up for summer around April, when the mercury climbs into the 20s and doesn’t stop until around July, which can top 30°C. You’re looking at around 11 hours of sunshine a day in midsummer, with bath-like sea temperatures. Things won’t cool off until October, which still hovers in the low to mid 20s.  

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain. 

Tipping

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
