Majorca Luxury Holidays

Balearic Island Jewel

Majestic mountains meander to coastal bliss

An island of contrasts, which still has less discovered corners
 

A visit to Majorca is full of idyllic coastlines, dramatic mountain scenery and hiking and cycling galore. Whether you prefer relaxing on beaches or high energy activity, this Balearic island jewel has plenty to offer.

Coastal bliss

One of Majorca’s most alluring features is its spectacularly beautiful and varied coastline with its laid back vibe. Away from bustling resort towns, the eastern shores of the island boast isolated coves to be discovered, with glittering crystal clear waters of cobalt blue. In Majorca’s north, beaches are fringed with Aleppo pines, while in the west, impressive backdrops of high-reaching cliffs create dramatic views. Head to the southern coast for ivory white sand and a classic coastal paradise.

To get even more off the beaten track, visitors can take a boat trip to Illa de Cabrera, one of 19 tiny, uninhabited islands, which is a real hidden gem. Visitors are limited to protect the islands, which means they are quiet and wild, far from the influence of modern tourism. The trip will also include a visit to Sa Cova Blanca, a stunning marine cave showcasing every shade of turquoise imaginable.

Magnificent mountains

The Serra de Tramuntana mountain range is an adventurer’s playground, and its smooth, winding roads are a dream for cyclists. Its challenging riding attracts cycling fanatics from around the world, but if you’d rather not brave the inclines yourself, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the breathtaking scenery. A visit to Deià, a pretty mountain town of honey-coloured houses, is a perfect vantage point from which to soak up the dramatic views, particularly at sunset when the vista lights up in orange and pink.

Between the mountains and the coastal town of Sa Calobra, a meandering serpentine road weaves through 12 kilometres of nerve-wracking but dazzling terrain. Brave cyclists tackle this tricky ascent, but driving this road, packed with hairpins and impressive drops, is almost as adventurous and provides equally incredible views.

A more leisurely way to experience inland Majorca is to take the antique wooden train from Palma to Sóller, which passes lush valleys and gives interesting insights into rural life, before winding towards the mountain foothills.

The taste of Majorca

Wherever in Majorca you end up, there’s a tasty dish to sample. On the coast, delicious fresh seafood dominates the menus, and in Palma, creative chefs mix traditional cuisine with modern influences to produce unique and innovative offerings. Inland, visit traditional ‘cellar’ restaurants in the basements of the oldest buildings, which serve Majorcan classics and local wines.

Quiet culture

To escape the crowds altogether, retreat to tiny hillside villages or restored manor houses set amongst olive and almond groves, where cicadas provide the only sound. The sleepy town of Artà is a perfect choice, with boutique hotels and interesting medieval architecture, including a church and castle complex, or visit one of Majorca’s striking hilltop monasteries in Valldemossa.
