Like Ibiza, there are bits of Majorca you want to avoid (all connections with Love Island for a start) and other areas which make you think you've died and gone to heaven. In Palma, the historic district has a warren of medieval streets; most of the beautiful old buildings have been renovated into smart hotels, restaurants and shops. The seafront promenade will be busy with tourists, but hire a bike and put some distance between you and the crowds. For the best local produce, head to the covered market Mercat de L’Olivar, although mostly you'll want to let someone else cook so you can make the most of the excellent tapas and pintxos. For a quiet day away from the crowds, head to Porto Cristo and the Caves of Drach. Or for an air of exclusivity, it has to be Deia, really just a village, but celebrated for its stunning beauty and the rich and famous who visit.
