Beaches are useless if you can't enjoy them. it is true that is not summer all along the year, but the rest of the seasons are mild and warm
, especially compared with the rest of Europe -that's why majorcan people is shivery-.

, the temperature average is about 18ºC. And it's not very rainy... Majorca has about 300 sunny days per year!
Not near not far

, which is a perfect argument to enjoy the sea and the mountain, the town style and the city or the tradition and the modernity during the same day... without refueling!
Majorca is also perfectly connected with the rest of the islands -Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera- and the mainland of Spain and Europe due to the airport, the 3rd airport in Spain by size.
World Heritage Nature
Beaches are not the unique natural landscape of Majorca that will hypnotize you: the mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana have been declared UNESCO World Heritage
. An idyllic place for nature lovers compound by forests, torrents and reservoirs.
The towns of the Serra de Tramuntana have a special charm, such as this sunset in Valldemossa. The island has also lagoons full of birds, really interesting for birdwatchers, and vineyards, olive and almond tree fields -wonderful when there are flowered-.
