Majorca has a variety of touristic locations which can be grouped into cardinal points, in summer and the rest of the year. Each one of these locations coincides with the cardinal points and they each have their own characteristics. Although it must be said that there is a certain similarity between the south, north and the east….whilst the west of the island is in different from the others.
The south where Palma de Mallorca, Llucmajor and Santanyí are to be found has the perfect infrastructure for holiday makers to enjoy leisure moments during the summer months in Majorca. The same can be said of the east with the areas of Artà, Capdepera, Manacor and Felanitx and of the north where the towns of Muro, Pollensa, Alcudia and Santa Margarita are located. These three zones all have a similar morphology. Their beaches are usually sandy, with a few exceptions of beaches with rocks or pebbles, the result of the natural erosion of the sea. Some of these zones have excellent hotel facilities of all levels, but in all cases providing the best service and quality such as those in El Arenal, Puerto de Alcudia, Can Picafort, Porto Cristo, Cala Millor and Puerto de Pollensa.
The Tramuntana Mountain Range was awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO and beholds an unequalled beauty in the entire west zone. Its morphology is completely different from the rest of the island, wild, rugged, with natural ports, where the sea and the mountain rocks have lived together for thousands and thousands of years. Places such as Deià, Valldemossa, Sóller and Banyalbufar are post-card localities, not only with unprecedented beauty but they are also perfect and idyllic touristic infrastructures, of leisure and entertainment to spend the summer holidays.
Majorca in the summer is internationally renowned for the sun, the sea and the sandy beaches. Many of the Majorcan beaches are awarded, year after year, with the Blue Flag by the European Union thanks to the quality of their waters, golden sand and services. But it is not only the sun, sea and sand that are the stars in Majorca, nightlife and leisure are also important protagonists. Designer bars, nightlife areas, discotheques and restaurants become excellent options for social relations, good eating and good drinking, as well as walking alongside an enchanting marina at night time, or breathing in the fresh air sitting on a pleasant terrace, participating in the popular celebrations and festivities in the different villages and neighbourhoods and mixing with the locals and interchanging experiences.
