Majorca is one of those pretty common places for Europeans to holiday especially if you are looking for affordable sunny breaks. Saying that, this small Spanish island is a great all rounder if you are looking for something for the whole family with lots of activities on offer or just lazing on the beach.
Cala Millor, Majorca
My last visit to Majorca was on my sisters hen party, now I know what you’re thinking getting wasted in Maguluf with the girls. Well actually far from it, we may have enjoyed a few drinks but the short break involved lots of relaxing, exploring the area and a lovely boat trip along the coastline. We stayed in Cala Millor which was your typical beach resort, lots of restaurants, shopping and gorgeous beach.
Blue Sea Don Jaime Hotel
Our hotel was Blue Sea Don Jaime in Cala Millor, a reasonable hotel if you are on a budget and a good base to visit the coastline resorts. We stayed all inclusive and although the food was your average buffet style, they had San Miguel on tap and the food was plenty to fill you up if you were heading on a day out.
We took a boat trip from the beach which took us along the coastline to Porto Cristo. I always love boat trips, not sure why I love them so much but the sun and gorgeous blue sea was one of my favourite parts of trip. The boat stopped for a few pictures of the Cuevas del Drach (Dragon Caves), which was an amazing sight, one of the largest underground lakes in the world. We had lunch in Porto Cristo and set back to Cala Millor after a few hours. The boat trip was reasonably priced and overall was about a 4 hour trip. The boat featured a glass bottom so you could check out the sea bed but the water was so clear you didn’t really need to venture too far to appreciate the scenery.
We visited in Spring and the weather wasn’t scorching but a lot warmer than the UK. I still managed to get burnt on the boat trip. I took lots of pictures and have tried to pick the best ones to give an insight to the area. I would say if you are looking for some cheap summer sun, Majorca is a great place to visit and explore.
Have you visited Majorca?, it’s definitely a hot spot for cheap summer sun.
