The largest of the Balearic Islands has attractions and resorts for every type of traveller. Families will love Alcudia's gently sloping beaches and shallow waters, party animals will be up all night in Magaluf's famous clubs such as BCM, music lovers can celebrate Chopin's genius in Valldemossa, and shopaholics can spend, spend, spend in Palma's trendy boutiques.
A good place to start exploring the island is Majorca's capital Palma. Here you can sample plates of tasty tapas, admire the city's Gothic cathedral, stroll around the marina or wander around the art galleries.
Or if you are staying in Palma, why not take a day trip and hop on to the island's 100-year-old wooden train to Soller and admire stunning views as you travel? If this sounds like your thing, another charming transport option is to take a trip on the aging tram from Soller to Puerto Soller and to explore the picturesque port town on arrival.
And, whether your accommodation is in Cala d'Or, Palma Nova, Puerto Pollensa, Cala Millor, C'an Picafort or Calvia, it's worth planning a visit to the magnificent Caves of Drach where you can enjoy a classical music performance followed by a boat trip on the lake.
Alternatively, for a spot of glamour, head to Deia on the north coast of Majorca and celebrity spot. Novelist Robert Graves called Deia home and literature fans can look around his house.
Hire a car and pick it up from the airport when you arrive. Not only will this make the journey to your hotel more straightforward, it will give you the freedom to explore the whole island from the cliffs in the north west and the pretty inland villages to the secluded beaches along the coast.
