Majorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands, has a well-deserved reputation as the ideal location to get away from it all and enjoy a wonderful holiday in beautiful surroundings. Its natural scenery is second to none, encompassing pretty coves, huge swathes of white sand and fragrant pine forests, with any number of charming traditional villages dotted around.

As far as the main resorts go, families with children tend to head to the safe beaches of Cala Bona, Puerto Pollensa and Alcudia, all of which are packed with shops, restaurants and cafes. Alternatively, why not base your stay in Ca’n Picafort, a pretty fishing village that boasts an awesome stretch of sand? If you are travelling as a couple, you may wish to consider the appeal of Sa Coma, with its romantic candle-lit tavernas and shady promenade.

If you are looking for great nightlife, your best bet is to aim for the resorts on the west coast of the island, such as Magaluf, Palma Nova and the capital Palma, all of which are well served with bars and clubs.

Majorca boasts some of the best beaches in Europe, many of which have been awarded Blue Flag status. Alcudia Beach is one of the most popular larger beaches on the island, and it’s worth remembering that the further towards Playa de Muro you go, the quieter the beach becomes.

To truly get off the beaten track, hop on a boat from the harbour in Alcudia and head over the azure sea to Cala Truent. This is a beautiful crescent-shaped bay on the north-west coast of Majorca and is very quiet, even in the height of the summer season. Pack a picnic, though, because you won’t find many facilities on this isolated corner of the island.

Alcudia itself is a great all-round resort. It’s ancient old town will bring joy to the hearts of culture vultures, it has enough eateries to satisfy the most ardent foodies and sun worshippers will be delighted by the beaches in the area.

For an authentic taste of the country, set your sights on Cala Bonae. This pretty town radiates out in a warren of charming cobbled streets, and the harbour-side is picture-perfect and is the ideal setting place to enjoy some freshly caught seafood and a chilled glass of white wine. Alternatively, those seeking authenticity could choose to stay inland in the gorgeous town of Felanitx - a perfect base from which to explore the rich verdant interior of the island.
