Majorca information

Majorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands, just off the coast of Spain, and is a popular destination for tourists from across Europe.

The Mediterranean climate or Majorca (known as Mallorca to the locals) along with a beautiful landscape and enjoyable cuisine all make it a popular holiday destination for European tourists, particularly those from Britain and Germany.

The first holidaymakers from Britain landed on Majorcan shores in 1952, despite a tourist board and hotels being open on the island since much earlier in the century. The Second World War and the Spanish Civil War had meant that holidays were a rare luxury but during the fifties, the Majorcan tourist industry boomed.

Based on a predominant farming economy, Majorca grew from a small population into a bustling destination in the space of a few decades. In 1973, there were more than seven million visitors to the island — a figure that increased in 2011 to 16.5 million people, most of whom flew into the largest city, Palma. Majorca is known for offering holidays to suit all tastes, with a wide range of activities and resorts for families, individuals and groups. Whether you are in the party central of Magaluf, the cultural capital of Palma or the family resorts of Alcudia and Sa Coma, Majorca offers something for everyone.

While package holidays are still one of the central tourism options for Britons flying to Majorca, holiday companies have begun to realise the potential of the natural beauty and climate of the island in creating tailored, unique holiday experiences for those who love the outdoors. Walking, cycling and yachting activities are all available, while the cultural life of the island is gaining prominence with a new breed of tourist. The town of Deya, for example, on the north-west coast of the island, provides a relaxing and rustic alternative to the bustling Palma, with its numerous bars, restaurants and clubs.

Summer is still a popular time for tourists, thanks to the hot days that reach an average of 28.9 degrees Celsius in July and, combined with the huge number of beaches, opportunities for sports and relaxation, this makes Majorca an ideal holiday destination.
