Cabo Blanco on the south east coast of Majorca boasts hilltop resorts overlooking the Mediterranean. Known as Cap Blanc in Catalan, the name was originally given to a remote headland that was the site of a military base until 1996. Majorca's capital Palma is just a 15-minute drive away, while Son Sant Joan International Airport is only 10 minutes away. A charming and popular resort, Cabo Blanco is sought after by couples and families alike looking for a picturesque and relaxing setting for their holiday getaway.
When to Go
Most visitors come to Cabo Blanco and Majorca in July and August when the seas are at their warmest. Days are dominated by clear, sunny skies while temperatures soar into the thirties. Although most visitors typically book well in advance if visiting during peak season, last minute holiday deals are often available. From Easter to June and in September and October, crowds thin out and milder temperatures make it ideal for hiking, biking and other outdoor activities.

Cabo Blanco sits close to the popular resort town of El Arenal and includes the towns of Bellavista, El Dorado, Sa Moreria, Sa Toree, Son Veri Nou, Cala Blava, Badia Gran, Badia Brava and Tolleric.
