A Quick look at Majorca

Europe > Spain > Majorca

More Than Just Sun, Sea and Sangria

Mallorca (Majorca) is the largest of the Balearic Islands, measuring approximately 110km long and 76km wide. The island has 7 cities, Palma (its capital), Manacor, Llucmajor, Soller, Felantix, Inca and Alcudia.

Most travellers come to Mallorca for its stunning beaches. Most of the coastline comprises of gentle sloping fine sandy beaches and crystal clear water. Numerous beaches and coves make it a perfect place to indulge in water sports and sun bathing.

However if you do visit, it is worthwhile hiring a car and heading away from the beaches to explore the rest of the island. You will discover romantic fishing villages, historic monasteries, monuments, museums and spectacular landscapes.

The island is dominated by the Serra Tramunta Mountains that stretch from Cabo Formentor to the area near Isla Dragonera on the west coast. The highest peak, Puig Major, is 1455m high. Further east is a second, lower mountain range, Sierra de Levante. Its highest peak is 562m (Atalaia Morella).

The central plain of Mallorca (Es Raiguer) is large and flat. This area is dominated by agriculture with its many almond trees, vineyards, carob trees and orchards.

For more cultural pursuits, Palma still retains some of its historical flavour sporting grand mansions and a magnificent Gothic cathedral in its bustling centre. More info
