There are many places to stay within the tourist hot spot Majorca, an island off Barcelona, Spain. Which one you stay in depends on what you are looking for. Luckily, there are resorts to suit everybody, be they families, 18 to 30 year olds, or those looking for a quieter holiday.
The west of Majorca is home to numerous resorts that are popular both among younger people and families. Palma Nova is a particularly hit with families as it boasts clean beaches and fun attractions like Golf Fantasia, which offers a good time for all ages.
Just next door to Palma Nova is Magaluf, another British holidaymaker favourite. During the summer, there are plenty of water parks to visit, but the beaches are available all year round, and Co-op Travel is great for helping holidaymakers choose the best deals.
The eastern part of the island is home to an abundance of beautiful beaches and lively resorts, with Cala Millor perhaps being the liveliest. It’s seemingly endless beach actually stretches across a beautiful 6km, so is perfect for sand and sea lovers. There are many areas for browsing shops and tasting the local cuisine, and the resort is full of entertainment for all ages at night.
Calas de Mallorca is perhaps a more laid back resort, again loved by people of all ages as it provides everything a holiday destination should – sandy coves, watersport opportunities, and a collection of superb bars and restaurants.
For British visitors who are into the relaxation that fishing brings, Cala Bona is a delightful resort, full of opportunities and long stretches of beach to enjoy.
The north, where the mountains meet the beautiful beaches, is full of resorts which just beg for you to spend days relaxing in the sun. Alcudia in particular is a great resort for families, as while mum and dad take advantage of the golden sand, kids can go snorkelling or learn to waterski.
For the picturesque holiday of a lifetime, C’an Picafort is packed with everything from shops to sand dunes, providing something for everyone.
These are just some of the top resorts in Majorca, and of course your choice is not limited to these. The best thing about Majorca is its wealth of options, and every time you visit you can try either a new one or stick to familiar comforts. A holiday should be an unwinding experience, so it is important to choose one that you will be able to make the most of.
