Majorca

Description

  • Majorca offers excellent value for money and has something for everyone - superb beaches, fantastic scenery and a great variety of resorts.

    The largest of the Balearic islands, set off the east coast of mainland Spain, Majorca enjoys a mild and pleasant climate, basking in the Mediterranean sunshine. An island of surprises and contrasting scenery, this is much more than just great beaches, fun bars, good restaurants and lively nightlife.

    Although all those essential holiday ingredients are there in abundance, there is also a lesser known Majorca which is traditional and quite delightfully hidden. You can explore some of the islands treasures on a Topflight recommended excursion, from the lively Inca market to the magical Drach caves, the ancient village of Valdemossa, or why not take a full day to enjoy a tour of the island by boat and train?

    Whether you're looking for lively nightlife, a fun-filled family holiday or just a quiet, relaxing break, Majorca is certain not to disappoint.
