So it is a horrible, wet and windy day here in Ireland, and what better day to write a post about my summer holidays! About 2 months ago I went to the gorgeous island of Majorca in Spain, and oh my I don’t even know where to begin!
I didn’t take much selfies or outfit photos because it was my first ever real ‘sun holiday’ (yes, sad I know) and all I wanted to do was relax and soak up the sun. Can you really blame me?
So Majorca is a beautiful little Island off mainland Spain and we went to the quaint little town of Cala D’Or for 10 days. It was just PERFECT for what I wanted. I am not a lover of hard core partying or tourist towns and Cala D’Or was exactly opposite. It is known for its small, yet breath taking beaches and its white washed buildings. It wasn’t busy or crowded and it was reaching up to 30 degrees every day, sometimes even more!
Like any place in Majorca, there are elements of tourist attractions, but they are kept out of the way and all grouped together so you can enjoy the peace of the island if you want to, or get involved in activities. The sea water was just, I can’t even find words right now, it was just amazing. It is crystal clear and so so warm. I really advise buying a pair of snorkels in the shops and go out in to the deep parts of the sea it really is beautiful!
Now, let me take a moment to talk about the marina. We went to the marina almost every night and we ate there a few times and it’s just perfect! The restaurants are all seated outdoors and are right on the edge of the sea next to all the boats. The marina really was the highlight of the trip and well worth a visit if you are staying in Majorca!
We didn’t stray too much from Cala D’Or because we didn’t have a car but I really wish we did! On our trip from the airport the island is full of mountains and gorgeous scenery. I wish we could have explored more of the island, but that is for another time I guess!
All in all this holiday was just flat out relaxing. I didn’t get up to anything particularly exciting but it was just the R&R I needed! I am still daydreaming about lying on the sand, and it makes me a little depressed just looking out the window here! But maybe that is just a sign of a good holiday!
