Mallorca

Mallorca is one of the most visited Mediterranean islands in the Balearic Islands for fantastic summer holidays and weekend breaks. Holiday-makers and second home owners are not only attracted by the promise of 300 days of sunshine but also the 246 sandy beaches, the finca and boutique hotels, 24 golf clubs, the modern ports, and the excellent infrastructure of international schools, world-class lawyers and banks. This makes living on Mallorca highly desirable for the luxury real estate and travel markets. From the vibrant capital of Palma to the Serra de Tramuntana and the Northern tip of Formentor – each area of Mallorca has its own distinct landscape and character.
