With hundreds of inhabited islands in the Mediterranean, it can be difficult to narrow down where to stay on your next beach holiday. My team and I at Prestige Holidays have decided to put together a few destination suggestions to help you make your decision.
For Golf Aficionados – Mallorca
In the western Med just off the east coast of Spain lie the Balearic Islands, the biggest of which is appropriately named Mallorca (from the Latin maior, meaning larger). This island is perennially the most popular summer holiday destination for the British public, and it’s not hard to work out why. Mallorca’s sweeping sandy beaches look out onto impossibly azure oceans, while Spanish flair touches its cuisine, nightlife and hospitality. Regular flights from all the major UK airports to Palma, which take around 2 and a half hours, make it an easy and accessible holiday getaway.
Whether you’re a serious sportsman or a happy hobbyist, if your idea of a relaxing break is a round – or ten – on some of the Mediterranean’s best golf courses, Mallorca is the island for you. Its mild year-round climate and rolling terrain lend itself perfectly to pristine courses which I’m sure you’ll be itching to explore.
