The beautiful Tramuntana mountains cover about a third of the island and offer a series of craggy mountains and calm, fertile valleys, while the capital, Palma, has a fascinating historical heritage and has developed into one of Spain's most beguiling and fashionable small cities, packed with fabulous bars and restaurants, with over half the population of Mallorca living here.
The stunning, white sand beaches are one of the island’s biggest draws as they stretch out and welcome you into the warm, deep blue sea ahead. Not sure about sea swimming? Instead, get a luxury villa rental complete with a private pool so that you can swim whenever you want.
Golf on the island is a year-round phenomenon, where the ideal climate meets ideal courses. So, for those who relax by enjoying a few holes, you can visit Mallorca and expect some world-class links.
And, if you are stuck for time, go to Mallorca for a long weekend, or, even better, a couple of stolen weekdays – spending a night in Palma and two inland in the northern heights.
