Majorca is one of the most popular islands in the Mediterranean Sea, and every year millions of tourists travel from all over the world to experience the great food, culture and climate. In order to cope with the continued increase of visitors, there are over 2,000 restaurants in Majorca, including cocktail bars and beach grills. Sadly however, most of the sea food sold on the island is imported, even though the island couldn’t be better placed in the Mediterranean. The Mediterranean diet is one of the most followed health plans in the world, and many people holiday in Majorca to catch a glimpse of the vast fields of olive trees and almond farms.
Majorca is also the biggest of the Balearic Islands, and Palma – its capital – is home to some of the most historic Spanish architecture in Europe. Majorca was a strategic stronghold during the Spanish Civil War, and over many years its shores and landscapes were battered with artillery fire. However since the late 1960s, the island has gone through a major tourist transformation, benefitting from waves of visitors from all over the world, looking to enjoy the continuous sun and spectacular beaches.
