Being the largest of the Balearic Islands, Majorca offers a mixture of golden sandy beaches, mountain scenery, olive groves, hectic nightlife, golf and undiscovered villages just waiting to be explored with the Garda Holiday and Travel Club.

Each region of Majorca has its own unique characteristics and attractions. The Northeast  for the history lover, the east for the sun-worshipper and the North and west for picturesque villages and spectacular mountains.

Palma, the capital, comes as a surprise to many people as it’s sophisticated yet intimate and bursting with life, with the best restaurants, shops, arts & crafts, cafes and of course lively nightlife.

Alcudia, Puerto Pollensa and Cala Bona, are brimming with cafés, restaurants, shops and beaches. Ca’n Picafort is another favourite. Once a sleepy fishing village, it has a 13 golden km of sand.  Sa Coma meanwhile, is great for couples with tree –lined promenade and romantic eateries.

If it’s fun you’re looking for then the west is the place to be, with Palma Nova, Palma and Magaluf leading the way.

The culture
Palma’s Gothic Cathedral is the jewel of the old town, overlooking the harbour.  Work began on this masterpiece and went on for 400 years.  Marvel at its rose window made from 1,236 pieces of stained glass.

The vintage train ride to Sollier,  lasts around 90 minutes, and has become Majorca’s most popular attraction.

Marine land, an award winning theme park, include dolphins, crocs and sharks, and is a great family day out.

Flight time to Majorca is just 2 hours 30 minutes.
