Majorca

What Majorca lacks in size, it makes up for in character. Its breath-taking scenery is a mix of forest-covered, rocky coastline, long, sandy beaches and turquoise water, while its towns and cities are brimming with impressive gothic architecture and historical buildings. Whether you want a family getaway with activities to keep the kids entertained, a romantic getaway to enjoy restaurants during the day and music at night, or you fancy soaking up some culture, there is something here for everyone.

The southern coast slopes more gently into the sea and is where you can find some of the island’s biggest beaches. Meanwhile, the north coast is much more rocky and rugged. It’s an excellent place to partake in rock climbing, to get some excellent views out over the ocean while hiking, or to explore some of Majorca’s numerous caverns and underground lakes. If this sounds appealing but you don’t want to be quite so active, the coastal roads afford equally stunning views with plenty of beautiful vineyards, historic towns and eateries along the way, so consider renting a car to see the island in style and comfort.

Partygoers will find the best time to visit is in the summer when the island is at its busiest. July is also the month when Majorca hosts two of its annual festivals: Islanencanta, where DJs get the island jumping; and Waiting for Waits, which celebrates country music. Film fans may want to wait until August and September, when the Fonart Short Film Festival is held.

Climate

While Majorca is a great Mediterranean island to visit all year around, the best time to visit to soak up as much hot sun as possible is during the summer months of June to August. The winds can be deceptively cooling, so remember to pack plenty of high factor sunblock. For cooler weather and to beat the holiday crowds, autumn is also an excellent time to visit. There is a little more rainfall, but the weather is still warm and sunny. The south side of the island is better sheltered from wind and the rain thanks to the island’s mountain range.

Meals

Prices in Majorca are a little less than those on mainland Spain. A three-course meal for two costs typically costs about €35 and a single course meal with a drink will cost between €8 and €12. Beer is between €2 and €3, while a cup of coffee or a bottle of water cost between €1 and €2, depending on where you go.
