Majorca is a place we love as a family to visit. I’ve been twice, once with the whole family when Abby was smaller, and once this year with the girls for a weekend break. There is so much of the island that we have yet to discover, but there are plenty of reasons why you should visit Majorca at least once in your lifetime.
Short Flights From The UK
You can be in Majorca in just over two hours from the UK. Imagine leaving behind the dreary rainy weather in the UK and walking off the plane to the enveloping heat that wraps around you. We timed our weekend break away with an early flight out from the UK meaning we were relaxing by the pool, drink in hand by lunch time.
The weather in Majorca is similar to weather on mainland Spain. Such a contrast to the UK. Our break away in May saw temperatures in the mid to high 20’s. January will often see temperatures in the region of 10-15 degrees. Such a difference from the UK!
You can get some very cheap holidays to Majorca. We were amazed at just how cheap our break away was. It was cheaper for us to book a holiday abroad than it was to stay in the UK for a break. It really is a no brainer.
Food and Drink
Visit any beach front in Majorca and you will be spoilt for choice around food and drink. As there are so many different bars and restaurants around, the prices are very competitive. It’s great to have a wander around taking in all the options. We found some great places to eat and drink in El Arenal this year.
Whether it’s mountains or beaches you want to look at, you’ll find it all in Majorca. Our first holiday was in Puerto Pollensa in the north of the island. Our hotel looked directly out at the mountains, so we had a fantastic view of them. Five minutes walk in the other direction however and we were looking out to sea across a gorgeous white sandy beach.
This year I stayed in El Arenal which is very close to Palma airport. This was great for transfer time, and also we were situated around ten minutes walk from the beach with mountains in the distance. I don’t think I could every get tired of looking at the scenery that Majorca has to offer. I remember sitting in an open fronted bar looking out to sea with a cocktail in my hand. It was perfect!
