Majorca for romantics this spring

Want to jet away with your loved one? There’s nothing more romantic than escaping your daily lives to a haven of beautiful beaches and glorious weather. Majorca may not be the first destination you think of when booking a trip, with classic loved-up city breaks like Paris, Venice and New York usually top of couples’ lists.

Majorca is neighboured by its smaller sister island Menorca, the party hotspot of Ibiza and picturesque Formentera. It is known for its quaint towns and villages, as well as all-purpose resorts with everything you could possibly want for on holiday. Let’s not forget the hundreds of stunning coastal spots and beaches to explore.

The weather is certainly one of the main attractions. If you’re travelling to the Balearic Isle in spring, temperatures are much cooler than in the height of summer (approximately 15 degrees Celsius), with eight hours of sunshine a day on average.

Spring is also ideal for those on a budget, as it isn’t until the months of June to September when the hordes of tourists arrive. There’s also plenty of cheap holidays to Majorca to make the most of at this time of year, with companies like Bookable Holidays, so you don’t have to break the bank to get here.

Palma de Majorca is a popular place to base yourself on a trip to the sunny Balearic isle if you like a good dose of culture on your holiday. Not only can you expect sun, sea and sand, but the city boasts a historic heritage that stretches back to the Roman era. Le Seu Cathedral is a must-see, with its stunning architecture reflecting the city’s varied history which saw the Romans, Moors and Spanish take control.

If you and your loved one are after a good night out, resorts like Magaluf are for you. One of the highlights for summer-time revellers is the Majorca Rocks Festival – an event that kicks off the summer party season. This year Californian sister act Haim will be headlining the festival, after a year of phenomenal success around the world. Following in the footsteps of the likes of Jake Bugg, Biffy Clyro and Ed Sheeran, the girls will also rock the crowds at sister festival Ibiza Rocks.

For getting away from it all, head to some of the lesser-known towns and villages for a real authentic experience. Towns the wine-producing area of Felanitx and Andratx, a rural village in the Tramuntana mountains are worth a visit.

Why not enjoy a walk to take in the stunning landscapes? The Serra Llevant mountain range in the north east of Majorca is also a good spot for taking in the views. The undulating limestone landscape offers fantastic views of the sparkling ocean and scenic surrounds. On a clear day, you can reportedly even see the smaller Balearic island of Menorca in the distance.
