The Majorca Area Guide
Things to do
Majorca is the largest of all the islands that make up Spain’s beautiful Balearic archipelago. This incredibly picturesque island is a real gem in the Mediterranean and is currently home to more than 875,000 permanent residents. For many years, Majorca has been a popular summer vacation destination among Europeans, thanks to its hot weather, great nightlife, sandy beaches and crystal clear water.
While Majorca was once notorious for its rowdy resort towns, proactive local authorities have worked wonders to curb this reputation. Don’t let that fool you into thinking that Majorca has gone stale in the process, though. The island is still home to a huge number of fabulous bars, clubs and restaurants. That being said, there is so much more to Majorca than a big night out. Contrasting with the modern establishments that are enjoyed by hundreds of thousands each year are a host of stunning ruins and structures from Roman and Prehistoric times – all of which are ripe for exploration. Other incredible feats of architecture that can be found on the island include the Gothic-style Palma Cathedral and Bellver Castle.
More adventurous souls can embark on remarkable hikes and cycling tours through the island’s mountainous interior or participate in some of the best diving the world has to offer.
Places to eat
Food is one thing Majorca does exceptionally well – especially in the capital city of Palma. Pork and fish are staple ingredients in most meals here and are often found in dishes such as Arròs Brut (a traditional Majorcan dish featuring plenty of herbs, spices, vegetables and saffron rice). Another local delicacy that comes highly recommended is Sobrasada (a raw, cured sausage made from the meat of the island’s indigenous black pig). Both of these delicacies can be picked up from the many markets that are dotted around Majorca, as well as from a number of restaurants.
As the island is such a popular tourist destination (Palma de Mallorca Airport was used by more than 23 million people in 2014), there are naturally a number of brilliant restaurants, bars and cafes available to cater to those who enjoy dining out. However, some of these places are targeted at tourists and, as a result, can be on the pricey side – especially those found along the Passeig des Born. If a truly authentic foodie experience is what you seek, wander down to one of the local markets to pick up any number of freshly cooked treats.
Those looking to do a spot of shopping will find no shortage of places in Majorca. The Porto Pi Shopping Centre in Palma is home to 140 shops, which sell everything from fashion to homeware. The aforementioned markets are also a great place to go to grab anything from food to jewellery and art. One of the most popular markets on the island is the twice-weekly market that takes place at Alcudia old town. This quaint but busy market serves up a fantastic atmosphere and has a huge range of goods on offer, including everything from fresh fruit and vegetables, to sweet treats, clothes and even bed linen! The market runs on Tuesdays and Sundays from roughly 8am to 1pm – so get up early and ready yourself for a morning’s haggling!
There are also a number of supermarkets selling all manner of foodstuffs and are perfect for stocking up on those essential household items. Supermarkets on Majorca include Mercadona, Alcampo and Hipermercado to name a few.
Getting there & around
Flying is by far the easiest way to reach Majorca. The island is served by Palma de Mallorca Airport – which is the third largest in Spain – and is the primary way that people travel to the island. While flying may be the most popular means of reaching Majorca, a number of ferries can also be chartered from the cities of Barcelona and Valencia, which may be a more popular option if you are looking to bring your car with you when you relocate.
For getting around the island itself, a car would certainly be the best way of doing things. That being said, there is a reliable public transport network in place on the island. The city of Palma has its own metro, even if it is a relatively small network and its own bus routes. There is also a wider rail network operating on the island that will take commuters between the various settlements.
