The Mallorca/Majorca region
Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic islands located to the east of Spain in the Mediterranean sea measuring approximately 60km x 60km. It is a diverse island with many different attractions and a variety of setting and atmospheres to explore.

Bodegas - A bodega is the spanish word for a vineyard or other place where wine is made, there are several on the island and you are able to visit these and taste the various wines they have on offer.
Boat trips - At many of the major coastal resorts there are great boat trips to go on. Short ones which offer a 2hour cruise around the bay, or longer ones if you prefer a full day on the water. Nearby Puerto Alcudia and Puerto Pollensa both have a range of boat trips on offer.

In the summer time especially, there are many festivals held in various locations around the town, including the (friendly) re-enactment of the battle of the Moors and Christians and also concerts which are held in one of the towns large squares.
