When it comes to holidays, there’s a reason why Majorca is so popular.

By far the best thing about this sunny Spanish island is that holidays here don’t need to cost the earth. To prove it, we’ve compiled our top five cheapest resorts and deals – and with some of them starting at under £176 per person, all you have to decide is when to go.

Can Picafort resort majorca

C’an Picafort

A former fishing town, this resort has bars and restaurants lining the beachside promenade, which runs from the marina to the harbour.

Need to know:

  • There are plenty of cruises leaving daily from the harbour, so you can explore the northern coastline – keep an eye out for playful dolphins!
  • The beach here is fantastic with a great range of facilities, and buses run regularly to the nearby resort of Alcudia.
  • If it’s nightlife you’re after, note that many of the bars and nightclubs are geared up towards German visitors – Guten nacht!

What it costs: Brits can pick up a bargain here with all inclusive packages (including flights and accommodation) from £245 per person.

Arenal resort Majorca

El Arenal

Just 15 minutes away from the airport, El Arenal is ideal for those seeking a short transfer time. It’s a “something for everyone” type place; the close proximity to the capital Palma makes it just as popular with the 18-30 crowd as it does with young families.

Need to know:

  • Arenal is joined to C’an Pastilla and Playa de Palma by a wooden promenade and it’s a short walk between the three resorts.
  • The Blue Flag beach here is child-friendly and shelves gently into the sea.

What it costs: All inclusive packages in the resort are priced from £205 per person making a last minute holiday a real steal.

Cala Ratjada resort majorca

Cala Ratjada

This quiet resort is known for its rugged bays and small coves. It offers a more peaceful side to Majorca and on a clear day you can see across to neighbouring Menorca.

Need to know:

  • If you’re planning a ferry hopping trip, you will be pleased to hear that regular ferries run between here and the Menorcan town of Citudella.
  • Outside of the main summer season, Cala Ratjada is popular with the older traveller especially during October to April.
  • Birdwatching is rife around the coves and while the resort contains rugged beaches, those travelling with young children would be better off visiting nearby Cala Gulla.

What it costs: Self catering deals are available from £215 per person.

Known for its wild nightlife, this is the resort for party animals.

Need to know:

  • Holidays here are guaranteed to conjure up many memories – it’s a big favourite with large groups.

Alcudia resort majorca


Alcudia is a resort that offers a mix of modernity and ancient delights and is great for families. It’s known for its impressive old town which contains historic parts dating all the way back to the 1300s.

  • The western side of the resort is more modern, and equipped with many bars, restaurants and cafes.
  • The beach contains a shallow bay and is popular with families of small children.
