Mallorca or Majorca is considered to be the largest island of the Balearic Islands, which are part of Spain and located in the Mediterranean.
The language, as in the rest of the Balearic Islands, is Catalan, which is co-official with Spanish.
Located off the West Coast of Spain lies the gorgeous island of Majorca which is home to a variety of stunning golf courses with a superb range of accommodation and restaurants to match. Needless to say of an island that sees almost 300 days of sun a year, the 2 main tourist hotspots are on either coast: Palma and Cala Millor.
Despite not having the pedigree of courses that its neighbor Spain has, Majorca remains a golfing paradise with courses that flow down its breathtaking coastline offering up spectacular views of the Mediterranean. With numerous of those glorious golf courses being just a chip and a putt far away from one another, there aren’t many better places in Europe to play than this beautiful island paradise.
