London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 01, 2009 -- Holiday Taxis

1) Be sure to visit the vibrant streets and squares of Palma, Majorca's stylish capital. Explore the striking gothic cathedral, stroll along the yacht-lined marina and work your way through the trendy bars, chic boutiques and authentic restaurants.

2) Make a splash at one of Majorca's many water parks. You'll love racing down waterslides, bobbing up and down in wave pools and jumping in giant rubber rings with your mates, all under the gorgeous Mediterranean sunshine.

3) Explore Majorca's beautiful countryside. Soak up the island scenery, from the calm of its green olive groves and fruit trees to the drama of its breathtaking coastal views and the rugged Tramuntana mountains.

4) Live it up in Magalluf, Majorca's party capital. Whether you do it every night or just the once, you'll have a fantastic time eating, drinking and dancing your way through the plethora of restaurants, pubs, bars and clubs.

5) Everyone knows Majorca is a party island, so fall for the colourful processions, local music and dance of its festivals, celebrating everything from the festival of Moors and Christians in Soller to the start of summer across the island.

6) For a whole new perspective on Majorca's island beauty, make sure you take a boat trip. Some of the best excursions are Sa Dragonera island, an idyllic nature reserve, and Cabrera, an island once used as a prison. From Palma, you can even take a day trip to Ibiza.

7) Take Majorca's prettiest rail journey on a quaint old train through the mountains. Catch the vintage train from Palma to the village of Soller, then sit back, relax, enjoy the Majorcan countryside and travel through the mountains' 3 tunnels.

8) Holidays in Majorca are all about slowing down and enjoying life. So take pleasure in a leisurely round on one of the island's excellent golf courses. For a world-class game, head to Santa Ponsa, which has played host to the PGA Balearic Open.

9) Discover the island's unbeatable beaches, from endless stretches to tiny coves. With over 250 miles of coastline, there's a beach to suit everyone, whether you want a party atmosphere, quiet relaxation or refreshing water sports.

10) It's all too easy to stick with your favourite foods from home on holiday, but make sure you try the local cuisine. Go for bite-sized tapas, freshly caught seafood and lip-smacking chorizo sausage, all washed down with a glass or two of the local wine.
