Welcome to NorthSouthGuides - a valuable and helpful resource of information about Mallorca (Majorca, Spain) for the traveller and resident alike. My philosophy in making this website is to make searching for information on Mallorca quick, easy and as painless as possible and I create every page with this in mind. The site is growing on a daily basis so please check back often.
I have created travel pages to help you find the cheapest flights to get here, the quickest way to find the best deals on car hire and scooter hire (and what you should look out for) and the most popular, and efficient way of finding good hotels at the best price. Also find out about taxi costs before arriving and whether you should be thinking about travel insurance if you don't have any.
Mallorca, or Majorca if you will, does have it all and is one of the most popular destinations in Europe. It embodies the perfect island holiday with the deep blue and transparent turquoise water of the Mediterranean, 300-plus days of brilliant sunshine a year, hundreds of kilometres of coastline with secluded coves and wide bays and a vast choice of cheap flights and hotel accommodation.
By day you can relax in the lazy paradise of the golden beaches or take a walk around the island's cultural centers and by night you can go lose yourself in the unbridled hedonism of Mallorca's pumping clubs or have a romantic dinner at a picture-perfect waterside restaurant. It's all here!
But Mallorca's not only known for its beaches and clubs. It has so much more to offer. The hugely varied terrain for example, with a mountain range running along its north-western coast, attracts hikers, cyclists and climbers from all over the world. And the history, culture and cuisine are just as unique making this a truely diverse and enchanting island.
In fact, I'm so passionate about Palma's cultural heritage that I've compiled a 2 hour Audio Guide of Mallorca's (Majorca's) fascinating history and its most famous historical sites. Everything from Parc de la Mar to the Diocesan Museum is covered in detail, including huge chapters on The Palau March, The Almudaina Palace and of course The stunning Cathedral.
