Majorca is a firm favourite with all sorts of vactioners and rightfully so! It may not be bursting with culture and history, but it is an entertaining, relaxing and fun destination.
Home to the largest water park in Europe, no holiday in Majorca would be complete, without a trip to Aqualand, located in El Arenal near the buzzing city of Palma. With over twenty rides to choose from visitors are literally spoilt for choice. The famous Kamikaze ride, The Harikiri, Devils Tail and the Crazy Race are the most popular amongst the daring thrill-seeking vacatuibers, but for those with a lower thriller threshold like myself, there’s nothing better than a gentle cruise down the Lazy Congo River to soak up the sun. (Just make sure you’re also protected from it – going home sun burnt is not an option!)
The Marineland Dolphin show is one of the most spectacular attractions in Majorca, with incredible sea lions, exotic birds, dancing penguins and underwater tunnels. It is also one of the few organizations taking care of the local species in danger and is a great place to learn more about Majorca wildlife.
Not only is Majorca bursting with an incredible amount of activities, it really does cater to every type of vacationer in absolutely any way you could think possible. Beach wise, you literally are spoilt for choice. The Cala Agulla Beach is an incredibly beautiful long stretching beach surrounded by large pine forests that fill the air with a beautiful tropical aroma. Famous for its wild water activities and buzzing attractions, it is a great place if you’re looking for a fun, lively crowd to share in your holiday experiences.
If you’d rather a family friendly beach, your best bet would be to book a sun-bed along the white sandy seafront of Sa Coma, awarded the ‘blue flag’ (bandera azul) for its cleanliness and family friendly atmosphere. The beaches in Cala Do’r located in the southeast are famous for their long stretching marinas, incredible luxury yachts showcases, golden sands, restaurants, bars and cafes. A fabulous place to catch a drink over the water.
For entertainment, incredible beaches and exciting nightlife all rolled into one, Magaluf is definitely not a destination for the faint hearted. With an extensive number of beaches, clubs, bars, shops and an endless amount of activities, Magaluf is an 18-30’s hotspot! – a place I would absolutely recommend if you are in need of a good night out. However, If you find that clubbing is not really your scene you couldn’t go wrong with a stay in the beautiful Alcudia: a great place for the family and especially for the kids. With a range of amusement arcades, go-karting, water-parks, horse riding and it’s own array of golden beaches, Alucdia is a great place to relax and spend time with the family.
