  • Mallorca is synonymous with world-renowned beaches and coves but it is also a perfect destination to enjoy countryside, golf, culture, water sports, entertainment… There are many reasons to visit this enclave in the Balearic Islands.

    There are pleasant surprises to be found in every corner of Mallorca. Good ways to explore the island are hiring a car or going on outings. There are expectacular routes and hiking trails, both along the coast and inland.

    Towns such as Deià, Pollença and Valldemossa have captivated artists for centuries, on account of their picturesque atmosphere. Culture is a vital part of the life of the island.

    The island has 216 kilometer’s of highly varied coastline, from the rugged shores and reddish beaches of the north, to the gentle relief of the south, with golden sandy coves. There are many different options to enjoy sun and sea, whether on broad sandy beaches or at small coves surrounded by pine groves. They all have one thing in common, however: clean, crystal clear waters.

    You can go sailing, windsurfing, water skiing and, of course, scuba diving here. Menorca’s stunning sea bed has been a favourite amongst diving enthusiasts for decades. The island transmits a sense of calm, largely on account of its valuable countryside. Menorca has the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve designation and a wealth of flora, fauna and landscapes.

Most outstanding is the S’Albufera d’Es Grau Nature Reserve, a refuge for many aquatic and migratory birds, which is also one of southern Europe’s most important wetland areas…
