Known for its beach resorts, sheltered coves, limestone mountains and Roman and Moorish remains, the island of Majorca (or Mallorca) in Spain is still a stunning holiday destination despite the swathes of tourists visiting each year. This has been a difficult task... but we've managed to narrow down a huge selection of amazing photos to show you the best of the best of Majorca - the largest of the Balearic Islands.


1. This is a typical beach on Majorca... lie back, relax and tan on sun-beds or take a shady snooze underneath a parasol

4. Not all of Majorca is full of tourists. You can find peace and quiet in the streets of pretty traditional villages like Valldemossa
