Just east of Spanish mainland lies a collection of islands known for their natural beauty, azure blue coves, and sleepy villages. Majorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands, is famous for its rich history and culture which spans thousands of years. These days, Majorca is dotted with gorgeous small hotels geared towards travelers seeking the best of both worlds: a destination full of hiking, site-seeing, and beach combing – but also one which boasts an eclectic nightlife peppered with stylish bars, delectable restaurants, and luxury nightclubs.

Palma: Majorca’s proud capital city
Alcúdia: Stunning beaches on the Badia de Pollença
Directly north-east from Palma lays the sunny coastal village of Alcúdia, famous for its bustling harbor, turquoise water, and old town dotted with small, traditional restaurants. This village is equally full of history, which you can discover first-hand by taking a walk along its 14th-century walls and visiting the remains of an old Roman settlement just outside. Alcúdia is the perfect location for a break in a small hotel, as the village is primed for families and couples looking for a relaxing beach vacation with plenty of activities on-hand to keep everyone entertained. One of the best ways to explore Pollença – and Majorca, for that matter – is by bicycle. Intermediate and experienced cyclists will devour northern Majorca’s incredible scenery, and even get the chance to stop off for a swim from one of the island’s hidden beaches. For those seeking a more relaxed vacation, head to S’illot Beach. A somewhat secret cove just four kilometers from Alcúdia, S’illot is protected from the wind by a small rocky island opposite the shore, making it perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing away from the sunbeds and crowds of the island’s major beach resorts.
