Mallorca, together with Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera, is one of the Balearic Islands (Islas Baleares), the Spanish autonomous community of Islas Baleares. It is better known to the sun-starved among us as one of Spain's most popular sun-holiday destinations. The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is about 110 km wide and around 70 km long, with a coastline of about 520 km that makes it ideal for hiring a car and enjoying a scenic drive.
Spanish is the main language, although the Mallorín dialect (a version of Catalan) is widely spoken by locals. You can expect to be understood in English and German too. Palma de Mallorca is the capital of the island, with half the 800.000 population living here.
