Rough Guide to Mallorca ~ Phil Lee

More Details The new-look, full colour Rough Guide to Mallorca & Menorca goes beyond the sun, booze and high-rise hotels to reveal the surprising delights of these Balearic islands. Away from the handful of mega-resorts, discover the bustle of Mallorca's capital, Palma, the craggy mountains and medieval monasteries of the north coast, and the charming towns of the central plain.

Menorca, lying to the east, boasts an interior of rolling fields and wooded ravines in between its capital Maó, and the beautifully preserved town of Ciutadella, while a chain of conservation areas protect the pristine coves and beaches that are Menorca's real treasures. Stunning photos, suggested itineraries, day hike routes, colour-coded maps, trustworthy reviews and top five boxes, not to mention all the practical information you need, will help you enjoy the very best of both these islands.

Make the most of your time with The Rough Guide to Mallorca & Menorca.

"Time Out" Mallorca and Menorca ~ Time Out Guides Ltd

More Details Mallorca, and its smaller neighbor Menorca, may have been among Europe's most popular holiday hot spots for the past forty or so years, but the days when they were synonymous with boisterous, boozy package tours are well and truly over. True, you can still get sand, sea, sun, sombreros and sangria if that's what you're after, but Mallorca, in particular, has spectacularly and surprisingly re branded itself as one of the classiest holiday destinations on the Med. Nowhere will you find a greater concentration of stylish hotels - ranging from full-on metropolitan luxury to rustic farmhouse chic - and first-rate restaurants in every price bracket. Add in the island's stunning natural beauty, particularly in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, the developed tourist infrastructure and the range of activities on offer and you have a unique destination that can satisfy just about any holiday demand you make.
