Two-bedroom flats in Cala d’Or, on Mallorca’s quieter, cheaper east coast, start at €149,500 (4Corners). Spring here brings with it a special delight — the sight of thousands of almond trees in blossom. Head to the Tramuntana Mountains for a hike or bask on a boat while the marinas are quiet. For good-value new-builds, look to the east coast. At El Puerto II, near the marina in Cala d’Or, fully furnished two-bedders start at €149,500 (08000 121020, taylorwimpeyspain.com).
