Experience all of Mallorca's attractions with this up-to-date, authoritative guide, packed with Insider Tips. Most holidaymakers want to have fun and feel relaxed from the moment they arrive at their holiday destination - that's what Marco Polo Guides are all about. You'll discover the best hotels, restaurants, trendy hang outs and night life plus shopping tips, suggestions for those on a tight budget, tips for travel with kids and ideas for sports and other activities. Also contains: the Perfect Route, Festival & Events, Travel Tips, Links, Blogs, Apps & more, Catalan phrase book and index. Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands, attracts all kinds of people: artists, pop stars, dropouts and even kings, but especially tourists. No other Mediterranean destination offers the variety of Mallorca. This practical, pocket-sized guide leads you to beautiful bays, long beaches, dramatic rocky coasts, sophisticated marinas as well as to numerous legacies of past powers and civilisations that have left their mark on the island. And of course Mallorca offers numerous attractions: water sports and mountain biking can be just as much a part of your holiday as great cuisine, hip beach bars and romantic sunsets. The Insider Tips reveal where you can get that South Seas feeling and where you can seek out the island's culinary specialities. The Best Of pages highlight some unique aspects of Mallorca, recommend what to do for free, contain tips for rainy days and for where you can relax and unwind. The Perfect Route takes you right across the island, visiting traces of the past. You'll find out What's Hot on the island, whether the new sport of padel tennis (a cross between squash and tennis) or Catalan pop bands. The Trips & Tours chapter explores the coast along ancient smuggling trails and leads you right inland. Finally, the Dos & Don'ts point out some of the things you need to be aware of and watch out for when visiting the island. MARCO POLO Mallorca provides comprehensive coverage of island. To help you get around there's a detailed road atlas inside, a useful folding map of Palma de Mallorca in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map. A must-have for any traveller, including those who haven't bought a travel guide in the past.show more

Review quote

Wanderlust Magazine: You've got to applaud Marco Polo's chutzpah to launch 30 new city/island guidebooks into an already pretty crowded market. Aiming to occupy the middle ground between the context-heavy luggage fillers and the context-free thinner volumes, the main USPs of these user-friendly guides are the plentiful 'Insider tips' dotted around each edition, the maps they're packaged with, and the pocket cheering price. Complete with near-magazine style features, they're certainly a less intimidating proposition than some of the big wedges on offer.show more
