Majorca is renowned for it's golf courses (around 23 in all), and mini-golf courses. Other activites on the island include cycling, walking and, of course, swimming either in the sea, at the hotel pool or at a water park, windsurfing and kite-surfing.
In Palma there are street markets to visit, selling fruit and veg, fresh produce, flowers, and junk. Be prepared to haggle for any trinkets that catch your eye.
The landmark of the city is the Cathedral, known as La Seu. If you fly into Son Sant Joan airport then you will probably see it before you land. It is truly an impressive sight from the air or land and it contains one of the world's largest stained glass windows, measuring almost 12 meters in length. Opposite the Cathedral, and overlooking the harbour, is the Almudaina Palace. Inside most of the rooms are empty, but the surrounding S'Hort des Rei Gardens are impressive.
Three kilometres from the city centre is the Bellver Castle. Hop on a local bus (the castle is 112 meters above sea level), and it will drop you within a few hundred yards of the entrance. The castle houses the city's History Museum. There are other museums and also cultural events in Palma, so pop into a tourist and pick up some leaflets and brochures, so you can decide exactly what you want to see.
El Arenal is in the south of the island. With it's wide promenade, and beach gently sloping into the sea, it is a popular resort for families. Lots of nightlife, so can be noisy until the early hours of the morning. The largest waterpark in Majorca, Aqualand el Arenal, is a fun day out and you can catch the bus there. It's only open during the summer season, so check locally at the hotel or tourist office for opening times.
On the other side of Palma is Magaluf. Here the water sports facilities include water-skiing, jet-bike hire and pedal boats. Here's the place to take a trip on a catamaran or a glass bottom boat, or race round the Go- Kart track.
In the north of Majorca is the Bay of Alcudia. Puerto Pollenca is situated at the tip of the bay and boasts four museums/art galleries, nice beaches, a pedestrianised promenade, and, of course, bars, shops and restaurants. Next is the resort of Alcudia, a quiet, old town, wonderful beaches -suitable for young children, interesting tourists markets on Tuesdays and Sunday selling ceramics, fruit and veg, handicrafts and clothes. East is Ca'n Picafort, which has two superb beaches (one with a nature reserve), go-karting, and is not too far from the S'Albufera wetlands (for birdwatching). This resort can be suitable for families with older children who don't want to spend all day, every day, at the beach.
If you hire a car when you're on holiday, go inland and see rural Majorca. Have a look at the pearl factory in Manacor, the Caves of Ham, Caves of Drach, the Caves of Arta, or try wine tasting in the local wine cellars.
Majorca is an excellent place to explore, lots of history, culture, beaches, and offers just that little bit more!
