Mallorca - Top Destination For 2008

Apr 21, 2008
The Spanish island of Mallorca is the main island of the group that forms an archipelago called the Balearic Islands. Located in the Mediterranean off the east coast of the Spanish mainland, Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands. Mallorca is also the most popular of the islands for holidays with German and British tourists in particular returning year after year.

According to the 2005 census, the population of the city of Palma, the capital of Mallorca, was 375,048. The population of the entire area was estimated to be 517,285 - the twelfth largest urban area of Spain. Approximately half of the total population of Mallorca lives in Palma.

Mallorca started to develop as a tourist hot spot in the 1920s. Today, Mallorca sees more than six million visitors each year, but nearly all the tourists concentrate in only five percent of her territory.

Less developed areas of this elegant island are ripe for new development and prime property commands a great premium. It seems more people than ever before want to live on or invest in the gorgeous island of Mallorca. Mallorca is known as the Mediterranean Lady and it offers a little something for everyone.

The Spanish housing ministry released figures stating that housing prices rose by over nine per cent during 2006, and over twelve per cent the year before. This presents an excellent time to shop for a deal of your own private spot of heaven, Mallorcan style. Property prices remain competitive when compared with other regions of Spain.

Buyers from Russia, Sweden, France and Ireland are jumping on the band wagon that was once dominated exclusively by Brits and Germans. Mallorca's leading international real estate marketing company has twenty sales offices in Mallorca and Ibiza in the Balearic Islands as well as in Germany. Leading agents in the area show little sign of slowing down. An agent is an excellent starting point to find properties that accommodate individual investment needs and tastes.

The rich culture and history of Mallorca are a large attraction for visitors and homebuyers alike, making it a peaceful place to live and experience serenity.

However, there is far more to Mallorca than the sea, the sand and the sun. Atmosphere is conducive to everything else in life, surroundings, weather, healthy diet and lifestyle and especially state of mind.
