El Arenal Majorca – With its long, white, sandy beach El Arenal (or S’Arenal) on the island of Majorca, is a mecca for tourists from all over Europe.

As you would expect, there is plenty to do here and lots of nightime entertainment, though mostly geared towards the younger generation. Families come here too though and there are good facilities for kids and adults alike.

Cala Millor Majorca – One of the busier and bolder resorts of Majorca’s east coast, Cala Millor is one to avoid if you don’t like a vibrant nightlife and the hustle and bustle of North-European holidaymakers out for a good time. It is however a good place to head if you like that kind of resort or if you are prepared to put up with it in order to enjoy the fine sandy beaches, the great climate and a good choice of facilities. Certainly worth a visit just to see how you like it, Cala Millor is a must visit for youngsters out for a good time whilst still enjoying the sand and the sun.

Playa de Muro Majorca – A place that went from a small fishing village to a popular tourist destination, Playa de Muro has retained much of its traditional Mallorcan charm whilst now having the facilities needed to attract the holidaymakers which help its economy. Its 5km of white sandy beaches, is of course its main appeal for tourists and the beaches have lifeguards and water sports to add to the appeal. Playa de Muro is great for both couples and families, with kids facilities readily on offer together with plenty of bars and restaurants for dining and whiling away those sultry summer evenings.

Majorca the Holiday Island – Every summer, you might think that all of Britain and Europe vacations in the island of Majorca. Since the 1st purpose built tourist resort during the nineteen sixties, the island developed into the primary choice for getaways in the sunshine. Palma Nova was one of the first purpose built resorts and is still popular today.

The combo of busy nightlife, numerous accommodation, hot sun, gorgeous white sandy beaches together with low price air tickets have made value holidays in Majorca irresistible for most people, with the island attracting over twenty two million vacationers from Ireland, the UK, France and all over the globe every summer season all searching for sunshine, sand, sea and sangria.

There are many more magnificent beach resorts than I can mention at this point but amongst the better resorts are Magaluf, Alcudia, Puerto Andratx and Palma Nova. On the east coast you will find some quieter resorts and if you are not worried about nightlife you might be better advised to head here, perhaps you could try Puerto Pollensa or for a very quiet time maybe Cala Bona, Cala Tropicana or even Cala d’Or.
