Box-tickers, beach bums, thrill seekers and culture vultures take note: Mallorca has it all, and within impressively quick and easy reach from most of the UK’s international airports. Picture-perfect beaches and a mesmerising sapphire sea: check. Dramatic mountains and ancient hilltop villages: check. A laid-back luxury coastal groove: check. A rich cultural heritage and fascinating history: check. Look no further for all of the ingredients for a perfect family holiday.
The season is a long one in Mallorca, from May until October. But while tourism and the temperature hit their peaks in July and August, the more temperate months of early spring and late autumn are also a wonderful time to visit.
Frankly, we loved it so much we decided to stay all year round.
