In recent years, Mallorca has taken on a new, glamorous style - high end hotels are replacing budget accommodation and the beautiful Balearic island of white-sand beaches and soaring mountains is becoming one of the Mediterranean's chicest holiday destinations. Up and down the island, locals are embracing their roots and revamping the island’s old manor houses, country estates and long-abandoned fincas (farmhouses,) into refined rural retreats. We have personally fallen for the quiet
charm of Mallorca's hinterland among the olive, carob and almond groves. You will be seduced by its secluded villages, the relaxed way of life, the endless sunny afternoons and the picturesque locations between a densely pined hillside and the glimmering Mediterranean Sea.
Mallorca also has an incredibly sophisticated food scene. Eating out in Palma has never been more exciting, with chefs – inspired as much by their Mallorcan grandmothers as Mediterranean nouvelle cuisine – adding a pinch of creativity and spice to the city's food scene. Inland, restaurants play up hale-and-hearty dishes, like suckling pig spit-roast, to perfection, pairing them with locally grown wines. On the coast, bistros keep flavours clean, bright and simple, serving the catch of the day with big sea views. We cannot wait to share some of our favourite addresses with you.

If you prefer average temperatures in the 20s and 30s and avoiding crowds of summer tourists before they descend on the island, then the best time to go is between March and May. Summer has a long stretch in Mallorca – from June to September – and is characterized by sweltering temperatures. Autumn is another nice shoulder season with mild temperatures and cooling rains. It is not rare to have lunch out on a terrace in November!
Palma airport, only 8 kilometres east of Palma, is the third largest airport in Spain. During the summer months, this is one of the busiest airports in Europe and is well equipped for the millions of tourists that travel through it each year. There are regular flights from all major UK cities, including London, Manchester, and Liverpool, all year around.
August makes a lot of sense for me and my family. I go to both ski and beach holidays every year and could not decide whether I should get a summer house or a flat in the Alps. Now I’ll get both!
Where do Bradley Wiggins & Co base themselves during Team Sky training camps? North Mallorca, of course. It’s no understatement to describe this area as paradise for cyclists.
With more than 30 km of coastline and some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, it goes without saying that North Mallorca is heaven for beachgoers and watersports enthusiasts.
There are over 200 cave systems scattered around the island of Mallorca. You’ll be able to explore some of these magical caves in northern Mallorca, such as the cave of Campanet.
Thanks to the islands’ warm, sunny climate and its collection of scenic yet challenging golf courses, Mallorca is now considered one of the best golfing holiday destinations in Europe.
