Situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, Majorca is a dream destination all year round for those who want to enjoy a luxury holiday visiting prestigious marinas and beach clubs, stylish shopping boulevards, lavish, award-winning hotels, Michelin-starred restaurants and impressive golf courses. The beauty of the island with its sea, sand and nature reserves surround the cosmopolitan city of Palma, where enjoying a dinner with live music is a must on summer nights.
Exclusive marinas and beach clubs
Majorca has more than 40 internationally-renowned marinas spread along its coastline. With mega-yachts moored along the quayside, fine dining restaurants and premium brand shops, taking a trip to the marinas are a must for the island's celebrities (or those who want to be one for the day). Puerto Portals, Puerto Adriano, Andratx, Pollença and Alcúdia are just a few of the marinas found along the Majorcan coast.
The marinas have a range of expert, world-class services for those who wish to discover parts of the island only accessible by boat or simply anchor in its paradisiacal waters and enjoy a completely different perspective of the island's marvellous landscapes. For visitors who do not own a boat, Majorca offers a wide and varied range of nautical charters, with more than 500 boats available to hire across the Balearics.
The island offers a number of exclusive Beach Clubs to enjoy and relax on dry land while taking in Majorca’s views. From urban clubs with rooftops and sea views, to small secret hidden coves where you can watch the sunset from a hammock, or more glamorous clubs that stand out for their stylish and exclusive parties.
Become the height of fashion in Majorca’s shopping boulevards
Lovers of luxury fashion find their golden mile in Palma including the Paseo del Borne and some of the surrounding areas such as Jaime Tercero or Calle Unión. The best international high-end brands, along with others of great prestige, line this street and add glamour to the shop windows of the Balearic capital. Over the last few years, this beautiful promenade in the heart of the city has become the perfect shopping area for those who want to take advantage of their stay to add a touch of extravagance to their wardrobe.
An ace for golfers
With more than 20 golf courses and a warm mediterranean climate, golf enthusiasts can enjoy the sport all year round. Majorca offers modern and premium facilities that blend with the island’s natural beauty and cater to both expert and amateur players’ every need. A wide range of specialist accommodation is available for golfers to relax after working on their swing.
Majorca's hotels account for over 60% of the entire Balearic archipelago’s industry. Palma has three of the best luxury hotels in the world, as recognised by the Condé Nast Johansens 2021 guide; LLorenç Parc de la Mar, a heavenly retreat overlooking the bay of Palma; Hotel es Princep, overlooking the old town and the ancient city wall and the crystal clear waters of the bay of Palma; and Palacio Can Marques, with a 360º view of the city, the bay, the harbour and the Tramuntana mountain range. These new openings, planned for the coming weeks, are all premium establishments located both in the city and in some of the most hidden and beautiful places in Majorca.
Another of the island's great draws is its gastronomy. Majorca has one of the richest and most varied restaurant offerings in the Mediterranean, with a combination of traditional recipes based on local products and avant-garde dishes designed by chefs who have been recognised by the Michelin and Sol Repsol guides.
