According to a recent study, Londoners who booked flights abroad at the beginning of this year were looking at beach destinations for their holidays, with Majorca remaining a popular favourite.

Overall, Palma – the port city of Majorca and capital of the Balearic Islands – was named the second most popular destination, only just falling behind the Canary Islands’ Tenerife. Whilst the news is hardly surprising considering that holidays in Spain have been the most popular option for Brits since 1994, it does demonstrate how even pivotal events are unlikely to interfere with our desire to travel abroad.

Why visit Majorca?

One of the largest and most popular of the Balearic Islands, Majorca receives approximately 11 million visitors each year. Villas in Majorca offer luxurious and comfortable accommodation for tourists and with glorious weather guaranteed almost all year round, there is little chance of disappointment for sun seekers.

In terms of landscapes and attractions, the island is naturally characterised by beaches and coastlines. Water sports are a common activity, with scuba diving incredibly popular, and other sports such as golf are equally popular. Dining is also a major attraction for holidaymakers with traditional Spanish cuisine available at every turn.

On top of this, major resorts also cater to those with more conservative tastes, offering cuisine from around the world. Those who choose to look for villas to rent in Spain can always cook their own meals using local ingredients for a unique experience that will ensure their dietary requirements are met perfectly.

Perhaps the biggest attraction which Majorca has to offer, however, is its convenient location. With a short flight connecting this island paradise to the UK, Brits can reach a sunnier climate quickly and easily – allowing them to enjoy as much of their holiday as possible. Depending on where you fly from, travel time can be as little as two hours, and regular connections mean finding an available flight shouldn’t prove difficult either.

On top of this convenience, flights and accommodation costs are highly affordable: catering to the restricted budgets of Brits. This is expected to be the main driving force of holiday plans this year, with British travellers cashing in on the competitive rates offered abroad.

Majorca’s affordability and convenience is only matched by its versatility, with the island’s resorts offering everything from family-friendly destinations, such as Puerto Pollensa and Alcúdia, to party capitals such as Magaluf. This means, regardless of your reason for visiting, Majorca is guaranteed to remain a popular choice for 2021 holidays.
