DH Lawrence, Joan Miró and Anaïs Nin flocked to sleepy Deià in the 1950s to mingle with society luminaries such as Winston Churchill, Grace Kelly and the Duke of Windsor. The well-heeled bohemians have remained loyal to Mallorca ever since. Palma’s old town is one of the Med’s finest; a maze of dinky boutiques, winding alleyways and sunny plazas, and the coast itself is as jaw-dropping as you’ll find anywhere. The vast interior is dominated by the Unesco-listed Tramuntana mountain range, in whose sweeping folds nestle tiny villages, orchards and olive groves.
Mallorca is the ultimate honeymoon destination - rugged and refined, with Instagram opportunities at every corner. Mallorca is a great destination for fitness freaks. Famed for its peerless cycling terrain (Bradley Wiggins trains here), there’s plenty for the serious roadie.
