Majorca is a top holiday destination for families, groups of friends and couples of any age. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing, all inclusive summer holiday or want to see some culture and explore the island, there’s something here for you. To help you choose the right resort for you, here’s our guide to the best resorts for couples in Majorca.
Best for… Nightlife
Renowned for their lively and energetic nightlife, the resort towns of Palma Nova, Santa Ponsa and Magaluf aren’t just reserved for groups of young holidaymakers. Equally popular with young couples looking for a fun holiday atmosphere, all three resorts offer a great choice of restaurants and bars as well as long sandy beaches to relax on the morning after a night out.
Cala D’or is another great option for varied nightlife. Situated on the island’s south eastern coast, the resort is an ideal spot for couples, offering a stunning marina, sheltered cove beaches, some great al fresco dining and plenty to do in the evenings.
If you’re travelling out of season, during the calmer months of September, October and May, then these more animated resorts are a good option if you’re worried that other parts of the island may be a little too quiet.
Best for… Culture
It may be known best as a beach holiday destination, but Majorca has plenty to offer couples who want more than just sun, sea and sand. On the northern tip of the island, Puerto Pollensa is a great compromise between the two, offering picturesque beach settings and a pretty old town to explore.
Of course, the ultimate destination for culture vultures is the vibrant capital city of Palma. This modern city has a long and interesting history that has left its mark in the impressive Almudaina Palace and the Bellvar Castle, which offers amazing views of the bay from its hilltop location.
However, for something a little more exclusive, couples should stay in the charming little town of Soller on the western coast. Accessible from Palma via a lovely old-fashioned railway, Soller offers visitors pretty streets lined with orange trees, sun dappled terraces and a fine selection of tapas bars and pastry shops.
Best for… a Secluded Getaway
If nothing makes you happier than the thought of a secluded beach away from package holiday crowds and the party resorts then fear not, because Majorca has its fair share. Cala Mesquida, on an isolated spot along the north coast, is one of the best, offering a long stretch of white sand surrounded by dunes and rocky outcrops.
Another option, far from the built-up areas of the island, is Cala Mondragó on the south east coast. Located in the Mondragó Natural Park, the cove beaches here are stunning and surrounded by almond groves and pine woodland, although the popular white sands here can get quite busy. For couples looking for natural beaches, but who still want something to do in the evenings, nearby Cala Santanyí offers the option of both worlds.
Finally, Puerto Pollensa, with its fantastic settings beside the peaks of the Cap de Formentor, offers a quiet strip of sand that’s perfect for couples looking for a laid-back resort with a good selection of restaurants.
