There are a million and one reasons why so many people go on holiday to Majorca – knockout beaches and a trendy capital are just a couple of them.
With sweeping beaches, jagged mountains and palm-lined streets, Majorca is the jewel of the Balearics. On a Cruise & Stay holiday here, you’ll find ribbons of white sand, curling coves and hidden inlets snaking their way along the coast. Sugar-cube towns pepper the shoreline, interspersed with ancient cathedrals and stylish hotels. You can sip homemade sangria at a seafront tavern, or tuck into a pan of delicious Spanish paella.
Gently sloping sands and shallow waters mean Ca’n Picafort and Sa Coma are great for families. But if you’re looking for a quiet spot, head to Cala Bona. Close to the famous Caves of Drach, this rustic fishing village has waterfront restaurants, a choice of beaches and plenty of charm. Or you can stay in popular Alcudia. Explore the cobbled Old Town, visit San Juame Church, and eat freshly-caught fish by the marina.
From the historical Old Town to the huge aquarium, Palma has it all. The capital’s cathedral is a must-see. With a vaulted ceiling, three aisles and one of the largest stained-glass windows in the world, this building is magnificent. If you want to explore further, take the vintage train to Soller. The wooden carriages weave through towering mountains and leafy orange groves to reach this coastal town in the north of Majorca.
Caves of Drach
Tucked away on the east coast, you’ll find one of the largest underground lakes in the world. Hidden in a huge limestone cave, Lake Martel is both impressive and surreal. You can take a boat trip through the caverns, where clever lighting enhances their natural beauty. As you drift along the water, you’ll be surrounded by tall stalagmites, while hundreds of long stalactites hang down from the ceiling.

Set on Majorca’s north-east coast, Alcudia comes as a 2-parter. Inland there’s a historic old town, where shops and cafés fill the streets behind the city walls. And then there’s the coast. Here, the long stretch comes with hotels, bars and a marina backed by restaurants – plus 7 kilometres of sand.
Set on the northeast coast of Majorca, Ca’n Picafort is a purpose-built resort with wide, palm-studded streets that come with plenty of bars and restaurants for its British and German visitors. The relaxed pace suits the neat, compact layout of the place. There’s nothing small-scale about the beach, though – you get a full 13 kilometres of sand to play with.
Set on Majorca’s east coast, Cala Bona is a relaxed fishing town that comes with plenty of rustic charm. Fishermen bring in the day’s catch at the harbour ready for lunch at the waterfront restaurants, while the original winding streets are ripe for exploring. There’s also a pedestrianised modern centre with shops and bars, and a choice of little sandy beaches.
