Cool and cosmopolitan coast
Costa d’En Blanes occupies a peaceful and polished part of east Majorca. Home to luxury hotels and chic villas, the resort’s cosmopolitan flair comes from its premium amenities and beautiful beach, with an exclusive yachting marina nearby.
Arranged elegantly down a hillside, Costa d’En Blanes overlooks a sandy beach that’s a good spot for swimming, with the elegant Puerto Portals marina nearby filled with bobbing yachts, boutiques and restaurants.
Majorca’s capital, Palma, is a 20-minute drive away, while some of the best golf courses and tennis clubs on the island are a stone’s throw away.
Flight time from the UK to Majorca is around 2 hours 15 minutes.
Transfer time from Palma airport to Costa d'En Blanes is approximately 20 minutes.
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.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.
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.
The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
