Along its 550 kilometers of coast, you will find some of the most beautiful coves and sands on the Mediterranean Sea: white beaches where all the necessary services live together with tiny coves surrounded by pines and cliffs.
Its crystal-clear waters are ideal to have a bath and practice water sports like diving, windsurf, fishing, sailing and even surf, although there are many other options. For instance, you will find many golf courses with a cared design, which are perfectly integrated to the landscape. Nature also plays an important role on the island. About 40% of its land is part of a protected area.
Among its diverse landscape, there are some spots that stand out, such as Serra de Tramuntana to the north, with peaks higher than 1400 meters, and Cabrera Maritime-Terrestrial National Park, a group of islands located about one hour away by boat.
Each corner of Majorca is surprising. Renting a car or going on guided tours are good alternatives to get to know the island. There are plenty of cycling routes and walking paths along the coast and the interior areas, which are carefully identified by signs, perfect to explore and unveil the diversity of the area. Towns like Deià, Pollença and Valldemossa have attracted the attention of artists for centuries, thanks to their picturesque environment. Now, well-known politics, cinema and fashion figures choose Majorca Island as their holiday destination.
Culture is another important feature of the island. During the whole year, there are festivals, concerts, literature contests, exhibitions, etc. The cultural hub is located in its capital, Palma de Mallorca, which stands out for its old quarter and its nightlife. Moreover, the island is perfectly communicated thanks to its international airport, Son Sant Joan, located just 8 kilometers away from Palma, and to the regular boat lines departing from the port of Palma and Alcúdia.
Furthermore, Majorca Island is the ideal destination to invest in a great variety of industries, in particular, the real estate market, thanks to the entrepreneur spirit of its inhabitants. They are represented by the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Navigation of Majorca, created in 1886.
