From sun-soaked relaxation to urban exploration, you can do it all in Majorca thanks to our cheap flights to this stunning Balearic Island. Endless miles of white sand and turquoise coast wait for your towel, sunglasses, and holiday literature, while almond and cherry blossoms fall like summer snow in the countryside.

Flights arrive in Palma, where you'll immediately bask in the best of Spanish culture: historical buildings, artsy shops, and authentic restaurants revel in that signature, laid-back Majorca vibe and now you can, too!

Why choose Majorca?

From tasting tapas on the cultured city streets of Palma to basking on the peaceful sands of Alcudia's beaches, there are plenty of reasons to head to Majorca.

The city of Palma itself is a cultural and historical hotspot, with numerous monuments and museums to keep you entertained if you decide to stay in or close to the city.

Resorts like Alcudia and Puerto Pollensa are perfect for families, the latter the quieter of the two. While it's true that most people head to the Spanish isle for the fabulous weather, delightful beaches, and a taste of the Mediterranean, there's a whole island to be explored for those who are after something else.

Best of all, we love an all inclusive holiday to Majorca.

Formentor beach is a quiet beach near to Puerto Pollensa. A short trip on the local bus, with spectacular views of the Mediterranean, takes you to a white sandy beach lined with pine trees.

Highlights of Majorca

Sun, sea and sand

The biggest draw to the island tends to be its stunning beaches and, since Majorca has a lot of coastline, there are plenty to choose from.

  • Cala Mayor beach: It's a stone's throw away from Palma and boasts long expanses of beach and a lively promenade. Here, you can relax on the sand, then head to one of the many hotel restaurants for a lovely meal.

  • Alcudia beach: This is much quieter than its western cousin, but still lively enough to create a decent atmosphere. White sands and shallow waters make this popular with families, the 3.4 km of beach ensures you'll still be able to find a place to put your towel!

If you really want to escape the crowds, rent a car and drive south to the idyllic Cala Llombards. This little bay, surrounded by tall pine trees, is famed for its incredibly clear azure waters, making it ideal for snorkelling.

Places to visit in Majorca.

Shopping, culture and tapas in Palma

It's easy to fall in love with Palma. Grand buildings, like the Renaissance-Gothic cathedral, overlook the coast with an air of elegance. Quirky museums and galleries dotted throughout the streets bring a contemporary edge. Medieval streets meander past aristocratic buildings and through colourful marketplaces. History and culture mingle easily here, giving it a laid-back atmosphere that's always buzzing with possibility.

Spend an afternoon strolling around the island's capital, soaking up the history and nipping in and out of the lovely boutiques. Or take the Palma sightseeing bus to see such cultural attractions as the Castell de Bellver and the Pueblo Espanol.

Explore traditional Majorca in Alcudia

Travel back to traditional Spain in this quiet town on Majorca's northern coast. Tucked cosily within medieval walls, honey-coloured stone houses line the streets and bright flowers spill from terracotta pots.

You can explore the city's ambling lanes, admire the grand mansions, or relax in the shade of a traditional cafe as the sun filters into the plaza. Plenty of independent shops and markets make it a great place to find a piece of authentic Majorca to take home with you.

Find some quiet time in Banyalbufar

A unique village on Majorca's west coast, Banyalbufar practically tumbles into the sea. It's built on a series of terraced hills; traditionally, each generation would add a tier of their own. The effort has amounted to a charming town, where the bright colours of the sea and green hillside are contrasted against soft stone.

Quiet and serene compared to the pulse of Palma, it's a great retreat for anyone looking for a peek of Majorca's sleepy side.

Trekking in Serra de Tramuntana

The Serra de Tramuntana mountain range stretches along the north-west of Majorca and offers some of the best hiking and walking on the island. Made up of rugged-looking, rocky monuments of earth, the terrain here is dramatically different from the serene coastal beauty of the beach resorts.

The region is now a UNESCO heritage site and, as well as the incredible scenery, you will also find a number of lovely little villages and boutique hotels nearby.

Sample a seafood Paella

Spain's national dish is a real treat wherever you sample it in the country, but the fact that Majorca is surrounded by the sea makes it a fantastic place to indulge in the country's culinary pride and joy.

Prepared to perfection in a huge, traditional pan that bears the same name as the dish itself, delicate prawns, juicy muscles, and succulent squid are gently cooked amid an explosion of spices.

Most of the coastal resorts have numerous restaurants that provide paella, and the large portion it usually comes in make this the perfect dish to share with family and friends.
