Mallorca inFocus


Mallorca or Majorca is one of the 4 islands that make up the Balearic Islands, a small archipelago of Spain in the sublime waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The island of Mallorca is the largest of the four, with its name deriving from the Classical Latin word ‘insula maior’ which means larger island. The capital of this Mediterranean island is Palma, located on the south coast of the island.


The weather is Mallorca is splendid for the majority of the year thanks to its geographical position, this mostly consists of warm, sunny summers and milder winters. The warmest months in Mallorca are June, July, August and September, with the rest of the months enjoying milder and temperature weather. The coolest months are December and January with temperatures reaching a maximum of 15 degrees Celsius.

History & Culture

Mallorca has a long and interesting history with the first settlers dating all the way back to 3000 B.C. The island’s central location has meant that over the years it became a major trading post for conquerors including Greeks, Phoenicians and Romans. The latter conquered and ruled for hundreds of years, building the wealth and prosperity of the island thanks to its link to Rome. This link resulted in the emergence of two important centres, Pollentia, known as Alcudia today and Palma, the current capital of the island. The island then passed onto the Vandal Kingdom of Africa and even the Byzantine Empire, but as Islam spread to North Africa, the Moors dominated Spain and then the Balearics. After several hundred of years of ruling Mallorca eventually ended with King Jaume I, who added the island to his Kingdom of Aragon, which is why Mallorca has Catalonian empire, and owes many of its important buildings to, including Bellver Castle, Almudaina Palace and the Convent of Sant Francese. In the years that followed, Mallorca was involved in the Spanish Civil War, which it succeeded and has since blossomed as a major tourist attraction.


Mallorcan cuisine can be best described as having influences of the Mediterranean and in particular of Spain. This mostly consists of lots of vegetables, pork and fish, with a healthy dose of garlic and olive oil in all their dishes. Some of the most famous dishes include Arros Brut, made with vegetables and meat alongside rice, the Mallorcan doughnuts called Bunyols and of course Tapas, small plates of food where you can try a variety of much-loved favourites.

Family Activities

The island offers a range of fantastic activities for families to undertake together and enjoy on their holiday. Some of these include visiting the Palma Aquarium, which is home to over 700 species of sea life, beach watersports including flyboarding, doughnuts and volleyball on the beach, boat trips exploring Mallorca’s fantastic coastline, canoeing and kayaking, as well as bird watching in the summer months. Other outdoor activities include cycling, mini-golf, nature reserves and parks such as Sa Dragonera, the Mondrago Natural Park and the S’Albufera Nature Reserve.

Tours & Attractions

Explore the many castles and ruins around the island, with the impressive Capdepera and Bellver Castles in Palma, as well as Capocorb Vell and Ses Paisses worth visiting. Other great attractions include the popular caves of Cuevas del Drach and Coves de Arta, situated on the east coast of the island, and you should take time to discover the grand Palma Cathedral, La Seu, known as an iconic site in Mallorca and the gallery of Es Baluard in Palma.


As Mallorca is a year-round destination, offering good weather throughout, the island’s nightlife and entertainment is plentiful. It is no doubt the main hub of the action takes place in the capital city of Palma, with the city offering ample bars, clubs, restaurants, cafes and shops for all types of visitors, young people to the rich and everyone in between. In Palma the Old Town, La Llonja and Santa Catalina are the best areas to explore the entertainment on offer, whilst the other towns and villages on the island offer sufficient choices for evening nightlife and socialising.


On the island you will find an abundance of shopping malls, areas and markets to suit your shopping and spending habits. The main area to find the best shopping outlets is Palma, the capital, with its Passeig des Born, famous for its designer and jewellery stores, and its El Corte Ingles department stores. Other great places to shop include the markets where you will find authentic and traditional pieces to take home with you. The biggest market takes place on Thursdays at Inca, located between Palma and Alcudia, whilst at the marinas including Puerto Portals and Port d’Andratx you can find luxury boutiques.
