Christmas Beach

Understandably, the idea probably hasn’t struck you yet but why not spend your Christmas in Majorca? Bizarre as it may seem, many people across the UK often go abroad for this special time of the year, some of them every year without fail!

Majorca, a widely known and recommended destination in its own right, is one such place where the Christmas period brings the same sense of relaxation, just with an intriguing twist you’ll want to go back for again and again.

Majorca, as you probably know, has a long-established and thriving tourist industry, and many popular resorts and attractions do shut down over the winter, so it is important to choose your resort carefully, according to what you’re wishing for this Christmas. Though it may not be as straightforward as in the height of summer, you’re sure to find an area with a holidays schedule suited to you. Whether you’re looking for action, relaxation, culture and history or shopping, there will be a resort somewhere across the island where you’ll find just what you’re looking for.

Now onto the other qualms you may be having. I’m sure that before you set off on a trip away from Britain you’ll want to know something about the weather. Odds are you won’t need to worry about that at all; most days in the Majorcan winter see a good amount of sunshine, and can often reach temperatures of up to 17°c and rain is exceptionally rare, though it can get significantly more chilly in the evenings. Though this prospect could well have seized your interest already, you may not know anything about Majorca, and are now left wondering where to stay and explore. Some popular resorts such as Palma Nova and Magaluf barely notice the festive period, but if you don’t have a preferred destination in mind, most people new to the island choose to visit Palma city itself. This metropolis is a thriving cultural centre for a very tight-knit community, offering endless streets of bars, restaurants, boutiques and shops open all year round, ensuring you’ll never be looking too long for the next big thing to see and do!

best resorts in majorca

Majorca is a first-rate destination for those of us who enjoy fun, relaxation, or even a combination of the two, on an idyllic beach. If the waterfront is an important consideration when booking a holiday, here are five of the best Majorcan beaches that could be a perfect fit for you.

Cala Llombards
On the South-East coast of Santanyi, this somewhat secluded beach is ideal for families with young children, due to its shallow waters. The perfectly clear water means it’s a good place to take your snorkel! Sun loungers and parasols are available for relaxing on the fine sand, and there’s also a beach bar at this relatively undiscovered gem.

Playa de Muro
Another family favourite with good stretches of shallow water is Playa de Muro, in the region of Alcudia. Displaying a blue flag of cleanliness, the large range of surrounding bars, restaurants, and facilities make this lengthy range of soft, golden sand an ideal choice for families of all ages.

Cala Mesquida
In the North-East region of Arta, lies the rather unique Cala Mesquida with its desert-like conditions! Boasting a large amount of sand dunes, the gently shelving sand leads into crystal clear seawater. You can try out a little windsurfing here before relaxing in one of the welcoming beach bars.

Cala Deia
Deia is a truly picturesque village near Soller, on the North-West coast. A small, secluded cove sits at the foot of a cliff, and although the beach here is shingle, the rock fringed bay provides the illusion of basking on a desert island! The azure waters are perfect for snorkelling, and there are a couple of very authentic beach bars and fish restaurants.

Es Trenc
Returning to the South of the island, this popular beach is local to Palma, and is home to dreamy white sands and shimmering turquoise waters. There is a restaurant and a bar here which makes it a great place for a perfect summer day. In the cooler months, this beach is a magnet for migrating birds. An all-year-round choice for anyone.
