Majorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands, and a wonderful place to take a vacation. The capital, Palma, is a delightful mixture of ancient and modern, and if you don’t want to drive, it’s possible to travel around the island by bus. Be sure to visit the Cathedral at Palma and the spectacular Caves of Drach at Porto Christo. Take the train from Palma to Soller in the north of the island for one of the most scenic railway journeys in Europe.
Okay, Benidorm on the Costa Blanca may be some people’s nightmare destination in Spain, but millions of holidaymakers can’t be wrong.

Take in the huge market on Wednesdays and Sundays, and wander around the beautiful Old Town, or head to The Benidorm Palace for an unforgettable night out.
If you love to holiday in the city but want to get around easily, try Alicante. There’s all the shops you’ll ever want or need, as well as a fantastic marina, wonderful beaches, and the beautiful Santa Barbara Castle, which stands guard over the city. It’s one of the largest medieval fortresses in Europe, offering great views over the city. Near the castle is the Old Town, with it’s beautiful monuments and wide variety of eating places.
