Majorca, the most populated in the Balearic Islands
The Balearic Islands comprise five islands situated in a privileged place in the Western Mediteranean. This archipelago is mainly characterized by a native and foreign population. The symbiosis between them has wisely combined respect for tradition with an opening up to new cultural influences, having this fact largely enriched the wide range of proposals that this society offers to the visitor (cultural, social, gastronomic, etc). Nature has contributed to this extensive cultural spectrum in two ways: on the one hand, it is a land bathed by the warm Mediterranean sun most of the year; on the other hand, a carved-like coastline with a lenght of 1458 km, able to offer by itself an alternative to that popular Balearic display being aware of satisfying a discerning demand. Majorca is the largest of the islands. Its 3,625 km2 of area and its coastline 550 km long set a unique, characteristic and plural frame concurring on the high degree of hospitality that the Majorcan society is, once again, able to offer. The variables of sun and coast turn into a constant for a market claiming for this product, being the touristic influx in Majorca obviously higher in the summer season. However, this touristic collective on the constant lookout of sun and beach, shows different preferences aware of the wide variety of beaches and coves that the island offers. Thus, it could be said that Majorca is, definitely, a mosaic of beaches at the visitor's disposal.
