Some specialities we would recommend you sample during your holiday are: Ensaimada, sweet pastries, and Sobrassada; a cured sausage.
  • Beaches in Majorca - Majorca’s coast features some incredible beaches. The west and north is mostly rocky with craggy coves like the spectacular Cala Llamp in Port d’Andratx, while the south and east coasts feature long stretches of pale sand and clear waters. Although most of the beaches get busy, it is still possible to track down secluded beaches in remote locations in the summer months.
  • Hiking in Majorca - Majorca’s rugged north provides some beautiful landscapes, covered with pine forest, citrus and olive groves and can be explored via a number of hiking routes. There are formidable trails guiding you through the Serra de Tramuntana or less challenging walks via the beautiful almond groves around Sóller in the winter.
  • Golfing - Across a small area, Majorca offers 18 full-sized public courses, making it one of the best destinations for the sport in Europe. They are clustered mostly towards the north east and south west of the island, with four to be found near Arta and six close to the town of Andratx; there’s also a nine-hole course at Manacor.
