From the super yachts bobbing about off the coast to the luxury pads tucked away in the hills, Mallorca is a playground to the rich and famous. Many A-listers call the island home and many more delight in visiting it for their holidays.
Models, actresses, sporting heroes, royalty… all have been wooed by the balmy breezes and stunning scenery of Mallorca over the years. Agatha Christie wrote Problems at Pollensa Bay while holed up in Puerto Pollensa in the 1930s. Winston Churchill holidayed just along the coast from the same spot. Even Grace Kelly and Charlie Chaplin have visited the island.
Today, Mallorca continues to attract an impressive list of celebrity visitors. Sales and Marketing Director of leading Spanish homebuilder Taylor Wimpey Espana and himself a Mallorca resident, explains the island’s enduring allure,
“The beauty of Mallorca is that it offers something for every occasion and mood. You can sit and gaze out at the ocean, watching the sun sparkle off the water and hearing nothing but birdsong and the water lapping against the shore. At the same time, you know that if you want the hustle and bustle of urbanity, with its shops, restaurants, bars and nightlife, Palma is the ideal city. Or if a few rounds of golf in the afternoon heat take your fancy, Mallorca offers that too. Then there are the water sports – snorkelling, parasailing, stand up paddleboarding, wind surfing and so many more. It’s a wonderful place for those who love the water.”
