Spain has the party and clubbing capital of Europe - Ibiza - but now her neighbouring island Majorca offers clubbers and music lovers everywhere the opportunity to dance and party the night away.
The well known Ibiza Rocks Hotel in Ibiza opened the Mallorca Rocks hotel this summer to great acclaim, and is set to be packed for the 2011 the summer holiday season with holidaymakers from around Europe.
The Mallorca Rocks has an impressive 330 rooms and is in Magaluf - a good location as Magaluf is where those looking to party in Majorca tend to head for, and the town has the infrastructure to support the venture - and it doesn't change the character of any of the island's more peaceful areas and those good for family holidays.
With the first bands for next summer due to kick off 2011 season in late May through to mid September, the Rocks will be a lively venue throughout the peak summer Majorca holidays season.
The line up of artists and bands scheduled to play isn't known yet, but in the past acts like the Arctic Monkeys have played Ibiza, and the quality is expected to be as high on Majorca as it is there.
For the mainly young guests likely to stay at the Mallorca Rocks, the island is less than a two hour flight, flights are cheap, and regional airports throughout the UK have cheap availability throughout the summer months.
With her great beaches, cultural offerings and sporting opportunities, Majorca is an ideal holiday location for all age groups. The island is nearly 80 kilometres long and has over 500 kilometres of coastline. Much of that coastline features beaches ranging from pristine white sand stretches to tiny out of the way coves and inlets.
Holidaymakers have traditionally visited the outskirts of the island where they can take advantage of the beautiful scenery, the beaches and water sports - holiday companies such as Thomson Holidays have been promoting beach holidays for years because of the climate and good weather in Majorca - and as a result it has been known for its beach areas and relaxing environment. But now tourists are discovering Majorca as a rural destination too.
By visiting the interior of the island, tourists will see the island's true history and can for example sample farm life. Many older farmhouses have been transformed into bed and breakfast type rooms where families and couples can stay while on holiday.
Agro tourism is a growing concept. Holidaymakers enjoy the countryside and self catering accommodation like villas - in the UK companies like James Villas have a wide choice available - cottages, apartments and fincas. Located in charming villages, these living quarters offer character in a picturesque environment.
Whatever the reason, with the great weather in Majorca, the island is almost sure to have what you're looking for in a summer vacation.
