You're never far from a tennis court in the nation that bred Rafa Nadal. Here's where to go for game set and match, guaranteed
It’s unsurprising that Majorca holidays are perfect for tennis lovers, as the island has produced two major legends – Carlos Moya and Rafael Nadal. The Mediterranean climate means that you can play all year round, and you won’t be short of places to practise. Nadal will soon be opening his very own tennis academy, so watch this space for future Majorcan tennis pros.
Where to Play and Stay: Cala Ratjada is a haven for nature lovers, but it’s also home to the Illot Suites and Spa which boasts four tennis courts. If you fancy a coaching lesson then just ask, as these are widely available for guests. To continue the sports theme, ask at the hotel reception about their 50% discount at the local golf club.
After the match: Don’t miss the Tramuntana mountains if you’re feeling adventurous, as they can be easily explored on foot or by hiring a mountain bike. If you’d rather take a breather then treat yourself to a trip on the nearby Soller Railway, which is a wooden train that has been taking visitors from Palma to Soller on the island's north coast for a century.
