The largest and most diverse island of the chain, Mallorca (Majorca) is a good choice for folks who want to explore not just the bars and beaches (though there are plenty of those), but also the culture and history of the fascinating Balearic Islands.

Many of the Balearic Islands' most important religious sites and architectural marvels are scattered around Mallorca, overlooking more than 70 exquisite white-sand beaches and fantastic rocky points. In the mountains, visitors will find old stone monasteries, flowering gardens, natural parks and many other treasures. Spelunkers will delight in more than 200 caves, some with archaeological remnants dating back thousands of years, beneath all this beauty.

A handful of amusement parks (including Aquacity, one of the world's largest waterparks) keep the kids happy, while several small resort towns have plenty of after-hours amusements for the adults. The island's capital and the largest city in the Balearics, La Palma greets ferries with the massive La Seu Cathedral, its delicate stone facade visible for miles to visitors arriving from Barcelona, Denía, Ibiza, Menorca and Valencia. 

Practical Info

La Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI), located five miles (eight kilometers) east of La Palma proper, is the largest in the Balearics. Once on the island, a solid network of roads and buses connects most cities, though the wilder east coast has fewer bus connections, with some areas inaccessible except in private vehicles. There are two train lines, one connecting La Palma with Inca and another more scenic one that runs to Sóller. Transportation can be a bit more restricted during the winter months, but it is not as markedly seasonal as it is in Ibiza or Menorca.
