When: We recommend you travel in May or September – it’s the perfect time to go if you’d like to avoid the tightly packed rows of sunburnt skin, but still get a feel for the island’s infectious atmosphere.
Where: Your top choices should be Palma, with its captivating city charm and prime location near to some of the island’s liveliest resorts, or the north-east coast which offers quieter bays and stunning surroundings.
Why: Be the boss of your own holiday and peruse the beautiful beaches and quiet bays at your own leisure. And hey, you may even find that summer romance you’ve been looking for... Wink wink, nudge nudge.
When: Between May and September. It’s when Majorca brings out the big guns – the hottest weather, the liveliest evenings, the best DJs and the most people…
Where: Quite simply, Magaluf or Santa Ponsa. In fact, you’re not even limited to one or the other. Try ‘em both! With only a short distance between the two, you’ve got a pulsating mix of nightlife right on your doorstep.
Why: Do you really need to ask? Parties! Whether it’s beach parties, boat parties or themed nights in some of Europe’s biggest clubs, Majorca has it covered … with the additional incentive (as if you need one!) of scorching sun and soft sands.
When: We know that a romantic break isn’t just about spending time with one another, it’s also about getting a tan and exuding that smug ‘I’ve just been on holiday’ glow. So, visit Majorca when the sun’s well and truly out, between May and September.
Where: Live like the rich and famous and head to Puerto de Andraitx or other resorts on the west coast. Luxury and beauty is what you want, so look no further. These west shoreline resorts have it in abundance.
Why: Because the beauty and romance of its resorts will course through your veins, making you fall even deeper in love with each other … or something like that. No, really – you’ll love it!
When: If you want to benefit from the best weather, head over between May and September. No need to fight with the headmaster to take your kids out of school now, is there?
Where: One of the Portos is a must. Porto Colom, Porto Cristo and Porto Pietro are like Cornwall, only better. Sapphire blue seas, quaint fishing villages, underground lakes and enchanting caves await you.
Why: Because Majorca has more to offer families than you’d think. Unearth some of the island’s hidden gems and be the first of your friends to say you survived … nay, loved, a Majorca holiday.
