The largest of the Balearic Islands, Majorca has been a perennial favourite with vacationers for decades. In recent years, it has taken on a more sophisticated style, with luxury hotels and spectacular restaurants popping up all over the island — meaning that it is now one of the Mediterranean's chicest destinations.
Sun-drenched white sand beaches, the soaring Tramuntana mountains with their UNESCO heritage status and charming towns and villages make Majorca an equally glowing choice for an active family break or a romantic getaway for two — and everything in between.

The Spanish royal family spend their summer holiday here every year and a number of stars including Sir Bob Geldof and Andrew Lloyd Webber own properties on the island. The island doubled for New Zealand and Hawaii in 2011 when the all-star cast of Cloud Atlas flew in to film scenes against the island's rugged backdrop — leading lady Halle Berry was spotted succumbing to the charm of island life, exploring the charming town of Soller with her daughter Nahla.
With world class hotels and spas, an outstanding gastronomic scene and an abundance of activities to suit even the most hard to please vacationers, there's so much going for this beautiful island getaway — you may feel spoiled with all the choices.
