May 23, 2008
Anyone thinking of visiting Majorca or Mallorca as it is also known would not be disappointed. This beautiful island is one of three, Ibiza and Menorca being the other two, combined called the Balearic Islands. Palma is the capital of Majorca and is the capital of the Balearic Islands.

The people here are extremely friendly and love children. Many celebrities choose to own a property here, not surprising with it being drenched in Mediterranean sunshine. The hottest months being July and August, temperatures averaging thirty-three degrees centigrade. Ideal holidays for families and couples just wanting to relax. There are lots of hotels now doing short break stays i.e. three four and five night stays, ideal to recharge your batteries! Majorca truly does hold something for everyone. Horse riding, golf, water sports, pirates adventure and much more.

Majorca is famous for its leather industries and is great to shop for shoes, handbags wallets and belts. Lots of bargains to be had, especially at the famous markets where you can do a lot of bartering with the stallholders. Great Fun!

Marineland is a not to be missed experience, the dolphin show here is really amazing. For a more human splash about visit Aqualand, awesome!

Predominately a catholic country you will find lots of historic churches, a must to visit are the Palma Cathedral and Bellver Castle. From Palma you can take a train ride to Soller, take in the beautiful scenery. The Caves of Drac are also a not to be missed experience, situated close to Cala dor.

Most of the holiday resorts do speak English however, if you decide to explore this fantastic isle, it would be advantageous to speak a little Spanish as the rural areas and villages are pure Spanish.

The nightlife on the island can be anything from a flamingo floorshow, live band concerts to the lively discos, some with open-air dance floors.

There is only one airport, Palma airport, so listed below are the approximate travel times to some of the popular resorts although there are plenty more to visit.. Hope this can be of some help.
