Majorca (Mallorca) Tourist and Travel Information Guide

Welcome to Mallorca-Now with the latest information on the Island's resorts, hotels, holiday rentals, flights, transport, restaurants and attractions plus a guide to Living in Mallorca


Mallorca is the largest and most densely populated of the four Islands (Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera) which form the Spanish Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea, east of mainland Spain.

The Island has been one of the most popular holiday destinations for many years, however current figures indicate that many tourists are now choosing to travel to cheaper competitive destinations such as Turkey, Greece and Tunisia. This is mainly due to unbelievable cut-price offers on Package Holidays which are proving too hard to resist for those on a tight budget. We are confident that Mallorca Tourism will remain strong and competitive throughout this change.

Last year for the first time, due to changes in Tourism Laws within the Balearics, privately owned apartments became available for Holiday Rental

You will find a good choice available for 2020 and most can be reserved online.

What's in a Name?

Mallorca or Majorca, we know can be a bit confusing. 

The locals refer to the Island as 'Mallorca' from the Catalan language frequently spoken. Lessons in schools are mainly taught in this language and it is also the preferred language of government and public services throughout each of the Municipalities.

This is a surprise to many visitors coming to the Island who expect Spanish to

be the main language spoken. However prior to the death of Franco in 1975 the island was known locally as 'Majorca' derived from being the largest, (Major) Island of the Balearics. In the English speaking world, especially the United Kingdom, 'Majorca' is still the preference, perhaps this will change over the years.

The immense natural beauty together with Mediterranean weather (hot dry Summers and mild Winters) are the main reason why this Island has been so popular as a holiday destination. Whether you are looking for a relaxing break or a holiday packed full of adventure you will find that the Island has something to offer everyone.

We also enjoy a very diverse landscape from the rocky Tramuntana Mountainous region in the North-West to the flat plains in the centre of the Island. The beautiful beaches, varying resorts and range of sports and tourist activities provide a multitude of options for visitors. This is the reason why so many tourists return to the Island year after year!

For those who live or are considering living here, you will find a comprehensive Information Guide to Living in Mallorca including Insider Tips which come from years of experience living on this beautiful Mediterranean Island.
