Overview of the most beautiful Island in the world.

The word Mallorca comes from the Latin, “insula major”, or the big island. The island is 3.620 km2 and the coastline is 623 km long. Approximately 740,000 people live here, and 16% of them are foreign residents.

People have inhabited the Island from the Bronze Age. Later on, Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, pirates, mainland Spaniards and tourists from all over the world have been living here.

Mallorca is referred as the “Island of Light”, as there’s an average of 2,9893 hours of sunshine per year. Definitively a sunny place!
