If you want to enjoy the joys of Spanish food and seaside in the space of sunshine-filled island, then the Balearic islands are one of the best European holiday destinations to visit. With coves to go snorkelling and mountains to explore, you’ll get to see some of the most stunning wildlife that Europe has to offer.
However, if you’re travelling with family, or are reluctant to find yourself significantly out-of-pocket, you may wish to find yourself a holiday bargain while you’re out there. Here are a few suggestions to enjoy Majorca without severely damaging your budget.
Enjoy their cycling routes
Majorca prides itself on its cycling routes, with coastline views that feel even better with the wind in your hair. The locals recommend renting bikes from near Manacor station and Finca Son Real. Many of their cycling trails are also interwoven with hiking and climbing trails – which not only means that you’ll get to see some of Majorca’s most infamous mountainous regions, but also get to enjoy a full out-doors adventure experience.
Hotels can certainly give you a luxurious experience, as most catering options are done for you. You will, however, be paying for the privilege of having your breakfast, lunch, and dinner cooked – not to mention all the other bells and whistles. Self-catering and staying in a villa is one of the best ways to save money and have a comfortable experience, no matter the group you are on holiday with– without completely scrimping.
A villa can cater for a large adult group, or family. On top of that, you’ll be buying breakfast and groceries with the locals to give you an authentic culinary experience with your stay. Browsing for villas in Majorca will help you to find an option that sleeps everyone comfortably in your desired location.
Hunt for meal deals
A meal deal in Majorca isn’t quite the same as a sandwich and a packet of crisps; instead, it’s finding local restaurants that offer two or three-course deals for a reduced price. This allows you to taste as much of the local cuisine as possible without worrying about completely blowing your budget. Happily, a glass of beer or wine is also usually included in this deal.
As a Spanish Balearic island, Majorca also does its own versions of tapas and local sausage, which are well worth trying if you can find them as part of a menu deal. Alternatively, pick up some local tapas foods at a supermarket and deli and take them outside for a picnic – that way you’ll be enjoying the local cuisine with a view to enjoy – and all at the price of a packed lunch. Sitting by the Cathedral de Mallorca, which overlooks the Old Harbour, will leave you feeling cultured as well as full.
Whether you pack your own snorkelling gear, spend your days reading on the beach or visit as many free attractions as possible, Majorca is a beautiful place to spend your time in – whatever your budget.
