Map of our walking Holidays in Spain - Mallorca - Click here to find out more about Spain - Mallorca Mallorca (Commonly seen in English as: Majorca) is the largest island of Spain. It is located in the Mediterranean Sea and part of the Balearic Islands archipelago. Like the other Balearic Islands Ibiza (Catalan: Eivissa) Formentera and Menorca (Commonly seen in English as : Minorca) the island is a popular tourist destination. In Germany and the United Kingdom, where package tourism to the island started in May 1952, Majorca has remained a popular destination. Since the 1960s, it has also become a synonym for mass tourism. However this mass tourism has confined itself to coastal enclaves leaving much on the inland and coastal stretches still remote and untouched. The name derives from Latin insula maior, "larger island"; later Maiorica.
The capital of the island, Palma, is also the capital of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands. The Cabrera archipelago is administratively grouped with Majorca (in the municipality of Palma). The anthem of Majorca is La Balanguera.

Geography


Majorca has two mountainous regions each about 70 km in length. These occupy the north-western (Serra de Tramuntana or Tramuntana range) and eastern thirds of the island. The highest peak on Majorca is Puig Major (1,445 m) in the Serra de Tramuntana. As this is a military zone, the neighbouring peak at Puig de Massanella is considered the highest accessible peak (1,364 m). The northeast coast comprises two sweeping bays: the Badia de Pollença and the larger Badia d'Alcúdia. The northern coast is generally rugged and has many cliffs. The central zone extending from Palma is generally flat fertile plain known as Es Pla.

The climate is Mediterranean, with markedly higher precipitation in the Serra de Tramuntana. Summers are hot in the plains and winters mild to cool, getting colder in the Tramuntana range; in this part of the island brief episodes of snow during the winter are not unusual.

The island is surrounded by two uninhabited small islands: Cabrera (southeast of Palma) and Dragonera (west of Palma).

Mallorca

To the north and northwest of the island is a limestone mountain range, the Sierra de Tramuntana with many peaks rising to over 1000m and culminating in the Puig Mayor at 1447 metres. Mallorca has over 300 miles of coastline with an abundance of picturesque coves and inlets where the mountains meet the sea. Springtime brings beautiful sub-alpine flowers to enhance your walks on the slopes below rocky mountain summits. Lower down paths are scented year round by lavender and wild thyme.
