Majorca is the largest island of the Balearics. Its melodious name comes from the Catalan for island and - derived from Latin - simply means "larger island". Nevertheless, Majorca is small enough for you to discover many different facets during a one-week holiday with ROBINSON.
Majorca's vibrant capital: Palma
The island capital Palma is located in the west of Majorca and enchants with Mediterranean flair. The old town, with its winding streets, is bustling with life all year round. There is a huge range of shopping opportunities and you can visit interesting museums and galleries - or plunge into the legendary nightlife at the Ballermann in the party stronghold of El Arenal.
The North of Majorca: Nature and Mountains
The contrasting programme can be found in the northern part of the island, where the wild and romantic Tramuntana mountains with peaks up to 1445 metres high are the perfect terrain for hikers and mountain bikers. There you are more likely to meet goats, sheep and donkeys than people. Spectacular tours lead you along cliffs, through olive groves and holm oak forests with a view of the glittering sea.
The north of Majorca - that is also the town of Sóller, surrounded by fragrant orange trees in the "Golden Valley", the village of Valldemossa, where Chopin composed his Raindrop Prelude, and the wide bay of Alcùdia: on Majorca's longest beach, you can enjoy the turquoise sea, white sand and Mediterranean sun in Ca'n Picafort or Colonia de Sant Pere, among other places.
The south of Majorca: secluded coves and beautiful beaches
The south of Majorca, where the ROBINSON Cala Serena is located in the charming holiday resort of Cala d'Or, is a dreamy landscape with traditional fishing villages such as Cala Figuera, secluded bays and the salt fields at Cap de Ses Salines. At Es Trenc, the longest natural beach on the island, or in the Caribbean-like bay of Cala Pi, you may find the answer to your question "Where is the most beautiful place on Majorca?". Or is it the secluded swimming spots hidden behind the pine forests of the Mondragó nature reserve?
