Hammering the hills on a road bike, spending a lazy afternoon eating and drinking on a vine-strewn terrace, snorkelling in clear-watered coves, ambling around sunny streets full of shops, markets and galleries … If any – or all – of these sound like your kind of thing, Mallorca could be the spring/summer holiday island for you.
