Majorca (Mallorca in Spanish) is the largest of the Balearic islands and is particularly popular with European visitors. Unsurprising, given the 300 day average for sunshine each year, not to mention the huge variety of resort choices, stunning landscape and rich history.
The south of Majorca, particularly Magaluf and Palma Nova, are the resorts with the party reputation, with plenty of 18-30 holiday makers more intent on the nocturnal offerings of these very lively resorts. To be fair, it is almost always the exuberant visitors who give the resorts (and hotels) this reputation. Reading hotel reviews before you travel should give you an insight into the clientele and hotel location, which may affect your sleeping patterns in high season if you are close to pubs and clubs!
Away from the resorts, Majorca's real charms lie in its stunning landscapes and scenery and a rich history. Travel to the north and west of the island to see the more traditional villages and towns where the mallorcan architecture and traditions prevail. Majorca is an excellent destination for walking at almost any time of the year.
Easily accessible by air and sea with ferries from Barcelona and cheap flights from most european countries.
PMI Airport is located 5 miles east of Palma and is a single terminal airport.

Be warned that the departure gates are quite some distance from the check in desks. Allow plenty of time to reach the gates for your flight.
Although there are no hotels at the airport itself, the close proximity to Palma de Mallorca with its many hotels solves the problem for those who wish to stay nearby.
