When is the best time to go?
Peak season runs from June to September and enjoys the highest temperatures. Summer is the best time to catch popular music and film festivals that run in June and July. Autumn is the best time to visit if you want to avoid the crowds, and the temperatures is still warm. Even in Winter temperatures don’t drop below 10 degrees.
Spectacular nights out
Majorca caters for any night out you could possibly be after. For the more eccentric and crazed party-goers amongst you, look no further than Magaluf’s Punto Ballena strip. With an assortment of bars to choose from we recommend purchasing a Magaluf Club Pass for 12 euros – which will allow you entry into 5 of the best bars for the night (or morning, as it shall no doubt turn into).
Time to relax
If your ideal night does not consist of boogying into the early hours, then Majorca offers more relaxed nights out. If experiencing local traditions is an important part of your holiday, we recommend Alcudia’s Old Town consisting of narrow, quaint streets home to lots of beautiful authentic restaurants. Why not walk around the walls of the old town and discover the century-old bullring and watch a mock fight (no bulls will be harmed in the making of this experience)!
Home away from home
If you prefer your nights out to be more British, Majorca also caters for you, providing a place to drink pints of bitter, watch the football on satellite TV, and even sit down at a restaurant that serves genuine fish and chips. A Majorca holiday offers British home comforts (but with much nicer weather). Majorca really does have something for everybody.
Majorca has a selection of gorgeous beaches off the beaten track, but we won’t tell you where otherwise they wouldn’t be secret! Why not strike up a conversation with a local and see what you can find?
How’s the shopping?
One of the most thriving industries in Majorca is leather and footwear, so if you are looking to expand your collection, Majorca is the perfect opportunity to buy cheap well-made goods. Sometimes those fondly known as ‘looky looky’ men may approach you in the street. Don’t barter with them– their products are not genuine and they sniff out a flicker of interest very easily. Instead try one of the many markets in Majorca, notably Alcudia every Tuesday and Sunday. Be prepared to leave your British politeness behind on entry into the market, and haggle your heart out to secure the best bargains!
Food glorious food…
Majorca has all sorts of food on offer to leave you nice and full up. From English breakfasts to Chinese takeaways – Majorca has it all. Prices are roughly £12 per person for a three course meal. Local villages in Majorca also grow wine, so why not try out the local vino at great prices? (Around £7.50 for a bottle). On average a set menu at somewhere classy like C’an Cuarassa, a Michelin restaurant in Puerto Pollensa, is around £25, and worth every penny. If you want to experience the authentic taste then why not try a tapas bar and befriend the locals?
If you prefer to knock up your own culinary delights, there are a range of supermarkets that offer all the comforts of home, but expect to pay more because strangely, the local Majorcan villages don’t grow Pot Noodles.
Over recent years Majorca has grown into a hugely popular destination. Whether your plan is to soak up the culture or top up your tan, lowcostholidays.com’s insider tips will ensure you are kept in the know on your next holiday.
