We love Mallorca! It may sound corny, but it’s true. Everything we do is about Mallorca. We seek to promote the island in the best possible way, through the information and entertainment we provide to the cosmopolitan mix of people living on and visiting the island. abcMallorca stands for quality, and has built a credible reputation over the years with readers of the magazine, visitors to the website, members of the abcClub and abcBusiness Club and with our many valued clients.
The cover of this edition is a symbol of what we stand for, and our longevity (we are very proud to be in our 8th year of existence and, in September, will celebrate our 50th edition). The image is a collage of photos from the 48 published editions and the heart is symbolic because Mallorca is at the heart of all that we do.
In my very first editorial, I warned: “… you too will fall in love with Mallorca when you realise what the island has to offer ….”
In this edition we focus on enjoying quality time on Mallorca without having to blow the bank balance. Your guide to holidaying in Mallorca on a budget gives you lots of ideas of places to visit and things to do to make the most of your time here. We go out for lunch to two fine restaurants offering incredible value for money – in Palma and Inca. And we talk to Kate Mentink, who works tirelessly on behalf of foreign residents here, about the importance of the upcoming municipal elections.
The new harbour for superyachts in Port Adriano is about to open and we find out why this type of luxury tourism – albeit offering good value for money – might be the only sustainable path for tourism in Mallorca. The debate continues.
Enjoy Mallorca on a budget!
