Why Mallorca is one of the top places in the world to retire
The Spanish island of Mallorca (or Majorca as it is sometimes known) is a very popular place for ex-pat British people to buy a home in order to retire. In fact, Majorca is currently regarded as one of the top places in the world to retire to.
An amazing choice of retirement properties
At the moment in Majorca there is an amazing choice of retirement properties for sale. The recession has hit Majorca hard. This means there has never been a better time to snap up a Mallorcan property at a genuine bargain price.

Sea views or beautiful countryside – the choice is yours
If sea views are your preference, take a look at some of the lovely properties in southwest Mallorca. Puerto Andratx, Santa Ponsa, Portals Nous, Illetas, Puerto Soller …these are just a few of the highly desirable areas in which to live in Majorca.
The east coast too is rather special if you like being near the turquoise waters of the Med. You’ll find some amazing properties for sale in coastal resorts such as Cala Rajada, Porto Cristo and Cala d’Or.
Or if you fancy somewhere a little more tranquil, why not try the north of the island. The beautiful town of Pollensa and its port Puerto Pollensa as well as nearby Alcudia and Puerto Alcudia are very popular with the British community looking to buy a Mallorcan retirement property.
Great weather, beautiful beaches and delicious food
So, why Mallorca? The first reason most choose Mallorca is a simple one – climate. And what a climate! OK it can be a little ‘changeable’ in the winter months, but on the whole the weather is wonderful, particularly in the summer months where you can take full advantage of the island’s beautiful clean beaches and crystal clear waters. (If you are the active type, Mallorca has some fantastic golf courses and hiking is popular too.)
Another strong reason is the food. Mallorcan cuisine is fresh and delicious, with the island specialising in seafood and paella. The island also produces some amazing wines.
As regards healthcare, Spain being an EU country means that you can take advantage of Mallorca’s excellent free state health system.
So if you want your retirement years to be rather blissful (and who doesn’t?) surely it’s time to take a look at the wonderful choice of real estate on offer in Mallorca.
Then once you’ve decided on your Mallorca property, you can spend the rest of your work-free years relaxing in this true island paradise!
