Welcome to Visit-the-World's Mallorca section ...

Visit Mallorca

Visit Mallorca

Majorca, or Mallorca, is the Mediterranean's most popular holiday island. Considering the number of holiday islands in that lovely, idyllic sea, that is no mean feat!!

Majorca, of course, is part of Spain and is the largest of the Balearic Islands. It is about 60 miles long and covers just 1,405 square miles roughly the size of Cornwall!! Within that area are two distinct regions, so you can switch from a beach holiday to the mountains, and back again, on the same day!

A majestic mountain chain, almost five miles wide, stretches from the
south-western tip of the island through to Cape (or Cabo) Formentor in the extreme north. The 4,900 feet high Puig Mayor, the brooding pinnacle of the Balearic mountains, is often shrouded in mist.

Most of the island is a fertile plain, called Es Pla. Here the Majorcans grow their produce, irrigated by water from subterranean wells.
The plain is riddled with scores of caves and grottoes, some of which
have been developed as tourist attractions.

But what really draw the crowds to Majorca are the genuine, warm
Mediterranean climate and the wonderfully rugged coastline, that winds
around enticing bays, along broad white-sand beaches and beneath breath- taking cliffs.

The mild climate and abundant water enable a great variety of fruit and
vegetables to be grown in the fertile soil of Es Pla. The mountain chain is
also dotted with olive trees, some a thousand years old. In February, three million almond trees burst into blossom, filling the air with languid sweetness.

The native language of the Majorcans, is "Mallorqui", a dialect of Catalan
peculiar to the Balearics. Of course, everyone is able to speak Spanish, as well!!

Palma, the capital, is a wonderful, historic city, with one of Spain's best
known landmarks, a beautiful, massive Gothic Cathedral, majestically
located on a hill over-looking the palm-fringed harbour.

Around the Bay of Palma, are the liveliest holiday resorts on the island.
El Arenal to the east of the city and Palma Nova and Magaluf to the
west. These are popular choices for "fun" holidays.

Just a little further to the west is the quiet, more up-market resort of Santa Ponsa, with its pleasing, more traditional, architectural styles.

There are lovely resorts all around the coast of Majorca/Mallorca. Puerto
Pollensa, on the rugged Cape Formentor peninsula, in the far north, is
particularly beautifully located. Indeed, many seasoned travellers contend that Puerto Pollensa is the prettiest resort town in all Spain! Also, the views from the tip of Cabo Formentor are truly spectacular, and well-worth the journey to the north, even if one is staying near Palma.

There is no wonder that Majorca has remained an enduring favourite with British holidaymakers since the 1950s. Long may it continue!

Travel and tourism are one of the main recreation activities of the modern world, both in the United Kingdom and internationally. Travelers in previous times went on pilgrimage or traveled for trade and exploration. Most people would not have the opportunities of long distance travel that we have nowadays.

We can travel by foot, by car, bus, train, airplane, boat, taxi, hovercraft, motorbike, bicycle, quad-bike or whatever. We can go to pretty much anywhere we fancy. Anyone of us can use websites like this one (visit-the-world.com) to book our flights and our accommodation, even booking a car can all be done on-line in a matter of minutes.

International travel is a favourite pastime for many people. Literally millions of us fly and cruise to exotic destinations for a break and to get a new angle on the world. Some people take up to four foreign holidays a year. Whilst there are endless holidays and adventures to be enjoyed abroad there are also many wonderful sights and experiences available in the UK.

Why not take a trip of a lifetime to the destination of your choice and write an internet blog (weblog) of your travel experiences. You can also post your holiday photos on your blog and share them with friends, family and other worldwide web users. If you have a mini video camera you could make a holiday video telling the story of your travel adventures. You could put this onto a DVD and also post it online.

The world is full of variety and there is no end to the possible holdays or journeys that are available. There is a complete range of choice for every traveller. All that we have to do is choose where we want to go and what we want to do and enjoy our holiday!

Ticket sales are handled by Holiday Express (ABTA No. E8585) retail agents for ATOL holders.
