Area guide to Mallorca
Also known as Majorca by many English speakers, this is the largest of the Balearic Islands – the others are Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera. The island has an international airport at its capital La Palma and whilst it is a popular tourist destination it also attracts a high proportion of wealthy overseas residents who enjoy its high quality properties, privacy and the island’s enviable scenery. It is fair to say that the errors made during its early days as a holiday destination have been corrected and the high rise hotels have been demolished to create green spaces.
La Palma de Mallorca
The capital city is renowned for its beauty, especially the cathedral and the Old Town. It’s a hub for yachting enthusiasts and the Spanish Royal family have their summer residence here. It has also developed a burgeoning art scene and a number of prestigious galleries have made this their home.
Golf in Mallorca
Mallorca provides a significant number of excellent golf courses and it has an ideal climate for the game, with over 300 days of sunshine. There are some 20 courses on Mallorca, with the majority in and around Palma, Magaluf and El Arenal. Other parts of the island with several courses are Alcudía and Cala Millor.
Mallorca has three international schools in and around the capital Palma. The Baleares International College, Bellver, The Academy, King Richard III and Queen’s College are British schools, as is the Escola Global, which teaches the British curriculum on a foundation of nature, nutrition, movement and creativity. Palma College is a private sixth form college and there are schools for French, Swedish and American curriculums.
