Planning a 2010 holiday in Mallorca / Majorca

If you are planning your holidays for next year,
    ~~ Mallorca would be a great choice ~~

The Island of Mallorca sits in the Mediterranean sea along with it's Balearic neighbouring islands of Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera, together forming the Balletic Islands (or Illes Balears - Catalan; Spanish: Islas Baleares - Spanish).

Mallorca is the larger island of the Balearic’s and provides very diverse attractions and countryside, this attracts a broad cross section of holiday goers with its rich, deep & diverse history.

Mallorca boasts up to 300 days of sun each year with peak temperature during July and August, and more moderate temperatures earlier & later in the year making April to June, and September & October extremely pleasant for those who prefer warm sunshine and avoid the hottest season.

Mention Mallorca to most unfamiliar people and they will immediately think of the extremely active & hectic resort of Magaluf which is famous for it’s nightlife, hundreds of restaurants, bars and clubs, making it a magnet for groups of young Europeans.
Aside from the nightlife there are plenty of other activities on offer. With it’s long white sandy beach, any number of watersports can be enjoyed. Busiest during the months from June to August.
Although arguably the most famous of the Mallorcan resorts, it is by no means the only attraction, nor does its noisy & possibly over active life affect other areas of the island.

This is the island capital of the island and economic hub.
It's a thriving, diverse and cosmopolitan city offering both history and modernism. Palma's attractions ranges from the hotels, shopping malls, restaurants and nightclubs to the traditional narrow cobbled stoned streets of Old Palma. Worth a visit are the fascinating Castillo Bellver, Le Seu cathedral and marina.

Cala d’Or (Cala Dor):
Located on the South East coast can be found Cala d’Or.
Cala d'Or began its life as a small fishing village and has now become a popular destination for family holidays.
Despite much development through the years, Cala d’Or has not lost sight of it traditional origins, it also boasts many white sandy cove beaches and impressive its marina Cala Llonga.
Across from the Cala Llonga marina sits Cala Egos, a smaller and more peaceful village extremely popular to families and couples looking for a more relaxed holiday while still having the attractions and facilities of the vibrant holiday town of Cala d'Or.
Cala Egos may very well be everything to everyone; well served by restaurants, bars, shops and a choice of its own 2 sandy beaches plus much larger Cala Mondrago beach in the nearby protected National Park (Parc Nacional), it provides a great base for small to large, young to old families.

Alcudia and Pollenca:
Situated to the Northern end of the island, these are popular resorts; the main attractions include the long beach that stretches between Alcudia and Port de Pollenca.

Soller and Port de Soller:
The Eastern coastline of Mallorca provides fantastic and dramatic rocky cliffs as this is the mountainous region of the island.
A popular attraction is the train which runs from Palma to Soller, then a tram can be taken to complete the journey through the heart of the town of Soller down to the coastal village Port de Soller; this journey is well worth taking as its route through across the island provides many spectacular views including a dive through a long tunnel through the mountain before popping out just above Soller.
