The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is a unique Spain’s jewel in the Mediterranean Sea. This year-round luxury destination steals the hearts of visitors with mesmerizing scenery, fascinating history and culture, tasty cuina Mallorquina and laid-back atmosphere, glamour and fun. Its 262 idyllic beaches, some of them with amenities and Blue Flag status, are lapped with crystal clear turquoise waters. From vast stretches of white or golden sand to gravel and rocky beaches, pine-specked bays and secluded tiny coves – when it comes to beaches, Mallorca is second to none.
Blessed with excellent climate and more than 300 days of sunshine, Mallorca is an island of contrasts. Romantic coastline with dazzling resorts, dramatic mountain ranges with lush valleys and traditional villages, inland fertile plains with charming historic towns – each Mallorca’s region offers something different. Incredible all-inclusive spa hotels, lavish fincas with private pools, luxury clifftop or sea front villas are scattered throughout the island to offer a fabulous stay for families, romantic souls and jetsetting bon vivants.
Beloved by Chopin, George Sand, Joan Miro and Agatha Christie, nowadays it is a favourite playground for royalty and A-class celebrities who regularly holiday here or purchase luxury estates to reside. Puerto Portals, Puerto Pollensa, Port d’Andratx and Palma with glitzy marinas, scenic hilltop Valdemossa and bohemian Deia are favourite celebrity hangouts. Movie stars, models, glitterati and business magnates flock to Mallorca to luxuriate in one of its high-end hideaways, in the legendary Hotel Formentor near Cap de Formentor, Belmond La Residencia in Deia or Gran Hotel Son Net near Puigpunyent.
