One of the most popular destinations among Holiday Hypermarket customers this year, Mallorca has morphed from an island of package holidays to ‘treasure island’ for British summer holidaymakers.
Also fashionable among other nationalities, Mallorca’s airport fields flights from Germany, Italy, Portugal, the Netherlands and Sweden, and is a “rare profitable operation” for its body corporate, Spanish Airports and Air Navigation, which is increasing the number of routes to the island.
But the holiday island in the Balearics is not just a haven for budget travellers. According to a recent survey, Mallorca and the nearby clubbing destination of Ibiza are two of ten locations in the world where holidaymakers are most likely to bump into celebrities.
Considering members of the Spanish royal family spend their holidays at the Marivent Palace in Majorca, and actors Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones own a Majorca mansion, while Claudia Schiffer, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Rafael Nadal – who was born there – have homes on the island, there’s plenty of glamour to go around.
Calum MacDonald, Marketing Manager at Holiday Hypermarket comments, “Mallorca has had a stylish makeover in recent years when many of the buildings were renovated and green spaces were expanded. Not to mention its unspoilt beaches, which are wide and golden, and close to luxury accommodation; it’s a great place to spend a summer holiday.”
