As a proud member of the Islas Group of Travel Guides, we're not here to sell you a holiday to Majorca,
we do not operate any form of on-line booking service, and being totally independent from all Travel
Agents and Tour Operators we derive no benefit from giving you a glossy tour operators view of the island.
Our mission is simple..., to provide you with practical first hand objective advice, from "real" paying visitors to the resorts, hotels and attractions that Mallorca has to offer.
This web site can only be maintained with feed back from your comments. So, if you've already visited the island in the last few months, any help, comments or contributions would be greatly appreciated.
Majorca or Mallorca, whatever way you prefer to spell it, and whatever way you wish to pronounce it, is the largest of Balearic Islands, and along with its sister islands of Menorca and Ibiza, lies in the Mediterranean Sea off the south east coast of mainland Spain. Flying time from most UK airports is around 2 - 2.1/2 hours and on arrival local time is one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time.
Once you have cleared Customs Control and collected your luggage, there are always large numbers of taxi waiting outside of the arrivals hall, although during busy periods you should also be prepared to stand and wait your turn in a queue for the next one to become available. Taxis on Majorca do represent good value for money by European standards, and can instantly be recognised as being the large eggshell/white cars with a green light on the roof.
One thing that you should be aware of is a standard taxi on the island is only licenced to carry a maximum of 4 passengers plus a "reasonable" amount of luggage, so for larger groups of travellers, or those with special needs, it is our recommendation to make provision for a pre-booked taxi to be waiting for you at the airport, and clearly specify at the time of booking that a larger, or specially adapted, vehicle is needed for the journey.
Since the onset of mass tourism in the 1960's, Mallorca has without doubt, been one of the most popular holiday destinations for all nationalities, offering a wide range of attractions to suit all tastes. However, as a generalisation, the resorts on the islands south coast are the more lively and perhaps more suited for groups of young singles, or those seeking an active nightlife.
