Are you glued to your TV watching the Love Island celebs get up to their cheeky antics in the Majorcan sun? If the show’s got you dreaming of a villa holiday to this amazing Balearic island, here are four ways to enjoy life out there.
- Stay in the charming yet stylish resort of Cala d’Or
Once a traditional Spanish fishing village, this family-friendly resort on the island’s south east coast fuses relaxed charm with upmarket style. As well as picturesque cobbled streets, golden sandy beaches and fun activities for the kids, you’ll find endless chic bars, eateries and shops in the stunning yacht-filled marina.
If you’re looking for the perfect villa holiday in Cala d’Or, check out Villa Marino with its private pool, serene gardens and beautiful countryside views. Or take a look at the spacious Villa Ses Arcades which boasts a great central location and wonderful sun terrace for dining al fresco.
- Discover a slice of Caribbean paradise at Es Trenc
A short drive away from Cala d’Or is Es Trenc, the most famous beach in Majorca. This trendy part of the south east coastline is often likened to the Caribbean thanks to its two kilometres of powdery white sand and bright turquoise water.
Es Trenc is quite remote and not part of a resort, which gives it an unspoilt and natural ambience. It’s a little more peaceful than the more commercial beaches thanks to fewer noisy watersports and restaurants. And it’s popular with nudists, so head to the marked sections if you fancy shedding your swimwear!
- Visit the laidback ancient town of Pollensa
For relaxing holiday in northern Majorca, Pollensa is a great choice. This historical rural town is full of narrow streets, old buildings, interesting museums and quaint shops. It’s also home to one of Majorca’s best markets, where you can buy everything from beautiful local crafts to delicious fresh produce every Sunday.
If you want to stay near Pollensa, Villa Bennassar is a top pick with its spectacular mountain backdrop, private pool and traditional style. Or Villa Bon Reco is well worth a look if you’re after lovely hilly views and a secluded lawn for a spot of sunbathing.
- Tickle your taste buds at Ponderosa Beach
The popular Ponderosa Beach is considered one of the top chiringuitos (beach clubs) in Spain. Situated on Playa de Muro on the north coast, this fashionable restaurant has a cool vibe with colourful shutters and white furniture.
Sink your feet into the sand as you savour mouth-watering Mediterranean dishes like seafood paella or linguine pasta. And then wash it all down with a tasty cocktail while admiring the ocean vista.
