					Sport holidays or relaxing in Mallorca
Majorca is an island in the Balearic archipelago located east of the Iberian Peninsula, at Valencia. With nearly 80 kilometers long and 550 kilometers of coastline, Mallorca is distinguished by its diversity. To the north, a mountain area offers green cliffs and coves. At the foot of the mountain in the center of the island, there are land dedicated to farming and viticulture. To the south is a paradise for long stretches of fine white sand and crystal clear waters and the image of the beach of Es Trenc. The transparent and crystal clear waters are ideal for swimming and water sports such as scuba diving, windsurfing or kite surfing, fishing, sailing, or even surfing. In Mallorca, it is also possible to practice golf on one of 11 certified courses that you encounter throughout the island, ideal to combine business and relaxation during their holidays in the Balearic Islands. Each corner of Mallorca is a pleasant surprise. For travel, a good solution is to rent a car or go on trips. There are a large number of routes and hiking trails to discover the charms of the island while enjoying the beauty of nature and fresh air into the lungs, on foot or by bike. In the hinterland, the atmosphere of picturesque villages like some Deià Pollensa or Valldemossa have fascinated artists and other celebrities who choose each year the island of Majorca as a destination for their vacation. Palma de Mallorca Culture is one of the main elements of the island. All year is a succession of festivals, concerts, literary events, exhibitions ... The cultural center is assumed by the capital, Palma de Mallorca, which takes its international reputation for its nightlife and is distinguished by the charm and beauty of its old town. During the day, explore the old town, its cobbled streets, shady avenues, its Gothic churches, fashion boutiques and souvenir shops. In the evening, enjoy the warm ambience to dine on the terrace or enjoy a drink in town. In the city center, the imposing Gothic cathedral, begun in the mid-thirteenth century and completed in the early seventeenth, is required in front of the palace of the Almudaina, a castle built by the Moors and subsequently occupied by the royal family. Follow the winding streets of the historic district and you will find the Museum of Mallorca, a palace of the XV century. The Banias Arabs (Arab baths) are also in this area. The Llotja, facing the bay, is a Gothic transformed into a museum of art. West of downtown is also the castle of Bellver. During your stay on the island, the ideal is to rent an apartment or a villa in Majorca and excursions to the day to enjoy all the charm and variety of the island.
