Mallorca is one of a group of islands in the Mediterranean called the Balearic Islands, along with the islands of Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera. Now belonging to Spain, the islands have been occupied by various nations over the centuries. This has resulted in a real melting pot of history, cultural heritage and architecture.
The coastline is tremendously beautiful, with sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, hidden coves and small fishing villages, but there is so much more to discover inland. Tucked away in the varied countryside you can visit tranquil mountain villages and explore monasteries, churches and manor houses, or head south to see the windmills, salt pans and the countless olive trees.
Don’t forget to sample the flavoursome local cuisine.
Enjoy the island!
