"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
January 25th, 2014
The beauty of Balearic isle of Majorca place is not so widely known. Holidays to Majorca consist of more than fun filled nights (that might come to mind); Magaluf and the south west coast have some of the best beaches on the island.
Palma Nova is a real family favorite on the south west coast; its white sandy beach is home to a bustling promenade packed with restaurants. It’s just 15 minutes from Palma airport and only a 10 minute walk to its neighbor, Magaluf. On the beachfront, there are 3 stunners to choose from with the main central beach, about half a mile of soft sands and gently shelving shores.
Set on the northeast coast is Majorca’s oldest town, Alcudia, a historic town that’s full of character and tradition with its scattered ruins and Roman history. It’s a bubbly place and the coast lends itself to a chic and stylish vibe with its glistening marina and plush restaurants. The impressive beach swoops over 4 miles of sands and gentle waters with many water sports on offer as well as a huge strip of shops and restaurants to choose from.
Over on the west coast is the little gem ‘La Romantica’, its turquoise waters and sheltered cove is a perfect place to relax for the day. Perfect to take a boat trip to explore the sea caves. You could also take a glass-bottom boat along the coast where you can stop at little bays and harbors, perhaps spend the day, before being picked up again later in the day.
One of the larger resorts on the west coast is Cala Millor, – a family favorite. The main beach is a wide stretch of golden sands, which gently slope in to the calm, clear waters. There are many water sports on offer such as parasailing, banana boats and windsurfing. There are lots of shops, restaurants and many seafront hotels with pools and splendid sea views!
It’s no wonder Majorca is such a firm favorite with holidaymakers from all walks of life…
