Once again, as the year draws to a close, I am amazed how quickly the months have flown by and here we are preparing the final edition of 2018. It has been another wonderful year for the team at abcMallorca, doing what we love most – sharing with you the very best of what Mallorca has to offer – those hidden locations only the locals know about and the exciting new openings that add more and more to the variety and experiences you can enjoy on the island.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a very special thank-you to our hard-working team who contribute month after month to ensure abcMallorca is the island’s leading lifestyle magazine.
It’s people who make this island great, and here at abcMallorca we’re fortunate to get to know many of them. Meet the award-winning Hollywood actor who is “very much in love with Mallorca” on page 62 and read about the New York socialite who simply can’t get enough of the island on page 78.
Extraordinary people pave the way for extra-special openings, and we hear the story behind Palma’s latest ultra-luxury hotel, Palacio Can Marques, on page 56. The growth of cyclotourism is phenomenal – we speak to Max Hürzeler, who is largely credited as one of the first to recognise Mallorca as a cycling destination.
Magaluf may be an unlikely place to focus a positive spotlight, but it is buzzing right now as a result of massive investment by an international hotel group, find out more on page 82.
There are many more people who give so much of themselves to make Mallorca a better place. We salute you and encourage you to continue your amazing work.
Yet again, our greatest achievement is to have the trust of so many loyal clients who work with us year after year; we are very thankful to you.
And finally, to our readers, we wish you a very happy holiday season and all the best wishes for an amazing 2019 full of wonderful experiences on this beautiful island.
Enjoy life on Mallorca!
Helen and the abcMallorca team
