Mallorca is the largest island in the Balearic Islands, which are part of Spain and located in the Mediterranean. The capital of the island, Palma, is also the capital of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands.

Mallorca has an area of over 3,6 thousand km² and the highest elevation is about 1,4 thousand km². The population is around 9 million people (2019).

Since the 1905s, Mallorca has become a significant tourist destination, and the tourism business become the main source of revenue for the island. Businessmen and investors in real estate are attracted by the large beaches, warm weather, and high-quality tourist amenities. Majorca attracts a lot of cyclists. Due to a high number of foreigners choosing to settle in the area, Mallorca has recently also become a business hub economy of its own, due to a high number of particularly foreign enterprises choosing to either relocate or expand, to the island.

The advantage Mallorca has is that it is only a two hours flight from most major European Capitals (London, Berlin, Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Zurich), four hours flight from Scandinavian and is a five hours Ferry ride from Denia and five hours on the fast ferry from Barcelona both on the coast of mainland Spain.

Mallorca has a modern infrastructure: including an excellent public transport network, extensive mobile, and fixed telephone network; running water and electricity in all towns and villages; high-speed internet access; and excellent travel connections to the rest of Europe and mainland Spain, by air and by sea.

The climate in Mallorca is subtropical with hot and dry summers and mild winters. It is the hottest in July and August, with daytime temperatures on the coast around the 30-degree mark. Inland, it is not unusual for temperatures above 40 °C in July and August. It is also in July that you have the most hours of sunshine per day. October is the rainiest month with up to 68 mm of precipitation. The water temperature in the sea reaches up to about 25 °C in summer. In winter, the water temperature rarely drops below 14 °C.

The Summer season runs from the 1st of May until the 31st of October, although the city of Palma is popular for short breaks all year round. Winter is a lovely time to visit the island as activities such as hiking, climbing, sailing, and touring cultural and historic areas can be enjoyed.
