There are few places in the world that can offer travellers such a remarkable combination of stunning landscapes, pristine beaches, captivating cultural heritage and unique experiences within such a compact location as Mallorca. Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands, and one of the most popular and beloved destinations in the Mediterranean – with good reason.

The Balearic Islands are an autonomous region of Spain, consisting of the islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. The two official languages are Catalan and Spanish and in Mallorca, a local dialect of Catalan, the Mallorquín (mallorquí) is spoken. In addition, there is a lot of English and German spoken across Mallorca, making communication quite easy.
