It may sound hasty but, Christmas is just around the corner. Holidays once more. It’s a relief, although packing your suitcase at this time of year almost inevitably means filling it with winter coats. But traveling can never be a drag, and there are warmer options than Berlin or Vienna. A good alternative, for example, is to spend the Christmas holidays in Majorca. The island offers a mild climate, well into January, and many cultural proposals to enjoy a few days in the Mediterranean.
Why choose Majorca for Christmas? The truth is that, it is a relatively unknown destination for the winter months, a quiet option, suitable for traveling with children since the offer of services and accommodation for families in Majorca is broad. In addition, in recent years, due to the strong commitment of the island to extend its tourist season, many hotels for adults in Majorca and city hotels have designed really interesting plans: dinners for groups, Christmas parties, art exhibitions, shopping tours, street markets… A different way to attract tourism that has little or nothing to do with those tourists that visit the island every summer.
The accommodations that are most active in this regard, are those located in the centre of Palma or along its bay, in Cala Estancia or Playa de Palma, Illetas or even Andratx and Port Adriano. They are destinations more attractive to travellers in the medium and high economic purchasing power, that decide to travel at this time of year, senior couples that look to enjoy a different experience during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
The culture and shopping are elements of the complementary offer that make Majorca an interesting destination, beyond the natural characteristics of its location, just over two hours to almost any European capital, with excellent air travel connections to all of them and with prices that are more than affordable for the British, French, Swiss or German.
