Are You Considering Majorca For Your Next Holiday?
Northern Majorca is known for inspiring people
Despite its early reputation as a budget tourist destination, Mallorca has become one of the most recognised holiday destinations not only for its natural beauty but also for the rapidly emerging luxury villa market and the number famous actors, sports people and members of the royal family who own property here.
Mallorca's landscape is one of the most stunning aspects of the island. The terrain ranges from the dramatic Tramuntana mountain range to the tiny coastal villages and bays that are dotted around its coast. These villages are a step away from the hotel culture that does appear on the island and will allow you to experience a more authentic taste of the island. I fine example of one of these areas is Puerto Pollensa with its sheltered horseshoe bay lined with beautiful sandy beaches and with the Boquer mountain range as its backdrop. This area is renowned for having the best fish restaurants on the island.
This is not to say that Mallorca is simply a sleepy forgotten island. Palma is both a cosmopolitan and vibrant city with bustling shopping centres and city in true Spanish tradition, its city centre forming a bustling montage of shopping centres, modern boulevards and a wide selection of bars and restaurants. Yet it still remains essentially Spanish with much evidence of its Moorish heritage still intact.
With nearly 350 miles of coastline the water based activities on the island are numerous including water-skiing, sailing, windsurfing and diving. While the land based sports tend to concentrate around golf, with over 18 courses on the island, but also activities such as tennis, bowling and horse riding. There is also a wide selection of spectator sports to enjoy.
