The Majorca Area Guide

Sights and attractions

Of all the islands that form Spain’s Balearic Islands archipelago, Majorca is by far the largest. The famous European holiday destination is currently home to roughly 875,277 people and when you take a look at the picture perfect beaches, mountains and towns, it is easy to see why Majorca is such a popular relocation spot. Majorca was once rather infamous for being a favourite haunt for young revellers, although the forward-thinking local authorities have worked wonders to help curb the negative influence these activities were having on people’s perception of the island. Nowadays, you will find that Majorca’s atmosphere is far more laid back, especially in the capital of Palma.

There is no shortage of things to do in Majorca. Take the time to explore everything from ancient Roman ruins to the stunning Gothic-style Palma Cathedral. If architecture isn’t really your thing, you can head inland and explore the island’s mountainous interior, or head out to sea and enjoy some of the best diving the world has to offer. Of course, if a night out tickles your fancy, there are still plenty of bars and clubs that will more than cater to your needs!

Restaurants and cafes

If you love all things food-related, Majorca is the place to go. Majorcans pride themselves on their traditional cuisine and anyone who ends up moving to the Mediterranean island will quickly find themselves falling head over heels in love with it. A large number of Majorcan meals are based around pork, fish and chicken and are normally accompanied with a healthy dose of local herbs, spices and saffron rice.

For those looking for a spot of fine dining, there are currently seven Michelin-starred restaurants on Majorca. These include Andreu Genestra Restaurant, and Restaurant Simply Fosh in Palma to name a few.

Because so many holidaymakers make the trip to Majorca each year, there are understandably a huge array of restaurants, bars and cafes available on the island. It pays to be aware, however, that a lot of these places are seeking to make as much money as possible out of tourists – so prices can be high and quality may not always be the best. A general rule of thumb would be to try and avoid some of the establishments found on the Passeig del Born in Palma – as this strip is a hotspot for tourists.

Shops

Planning on embarking on a couple of shopping sprees? If so, Majorca should be more than capable of catering to your needs. There are a number of shopping centres on the island selling everything from clothes to electronics and home appliances. Porto Pi Shopping Centre in Palma is one such example and is home to 140 shops. If high fashion is what you are after, take a stroll along Avinguda Jaume III. This is one of the grandest streets on the island and also one of the most well-known. Here, you will be able to find brands such as Massimo Dutti and Mont Blanc. Over on Passeig del Born, you will be able to find Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss and more.

Travel

The easiest, and not to mention quickest, way of travelling to Majorca is by air. The main international airport on the island is Palma de Mallorca Airport, which is the third busiest of its kind in Spain, and was used by no less than 23 million people in 2014. The mainland cities of Barcelona and Valencia also offer a number of regular ferry services to the island.

On Majorca itself, residents will find a reliable public transport network at their disposal. Palma has its own metro system, as well as a number of buses that travel to various points around the city. Further bus and train services are also present to provide residents with a means of getting to the other settlements around the island. However, while the public transport on the island is more than capable of getting you from A to B, permanent residents will most likely find that owning their own car comes in handy.
