Mallorca (or Majorca) is part of the Balearic islands, a Spanish archipelago in the north-western corner of the Mediterranean Sea. The island is famed for its beaches but its hinterland is absolutely fascinating and definitely worth exploring. My flight approached the island from a north-westerly direction. The views of the rugged Formentor peninsula and Pollensa Bay behind it were simply stunning. As the plane swooped in over the island, we were treated to gorgeous views of the countryside with its mosaic of fields, interspersed with little towns and villages. If your flight approaches the airport from the inland, look out for the symbol of Mallorca: the quaint windmills which dot the countryside.
