Holidays in Mallorca: plans to enjoy all year
Mallorca is an island known mostly for its weather, its beaches and its nightlife, but it has a lot more to offer. Today we want to suggest a list of things to do in Majorca on a month-by-month basis. We hope you find it interesting!
January heralds the season of sales and it’s time for shopping. Enjoy a Majorca holiday shopping getaway for a chance to snap up the best brands at the best prices.
Between January and February is the time to enjoy the flowering of the almond trees, when the Mallorcan countryside is strewn with hues of white and pink. Almond-blossom season is one of the must-see events in Mallorca and tells us that spring is well and truly on its way.
The good weather begins, and March is seen as the perfect month for hiking. Our recommendation: cross the Serra de Tramuntana following the course of ancient dry stone walls.
April is when the famous Easter processions are held: witnessing these spectacular expressions of religious tradition definitely qualifies as one of the essential things to do in Palma de Mallorca.
May is an ideal month for a therapeutic and relaxing break, when the sun has yet to acquire its full force. Let yourself be pampered in our spa or enjoy a marvellous dinner at Simply Fosh, the Michelin-starred restaurant in Palma.
And with June, the summer arrives. People gather on the night of San Juan (24 June) to welcome the arrival this most-anticipated season. A perfect moment to enjoy Majorca’s beaches before they get too crowded.
July and August are the best months to enjoy the sea. If you are spending your holidays in Majorca during these months, hop on a ferry and visit the Natural Park of Cabrera, revel in your favourite water sport or experience the excitement of the Copa del Rey de Vela sailing regatta from our roof.
In mid-September join Palma’s Nit de l’Art, the city’s ‘Night of Art’, and visit its museums and art galleries for a series of special exhibitions and events.
In October many athletes gather on the island to take advantage of its exceptional weather. If it’s running that you’re after, don’t miss the TUI Marathon, held annually in the middle of the month.
Towards the end of the year life in Mallorca proceeds a slower pace. November reveals a more traditional side to the island, with numerous craft fairs welcoming locals and visitors alike. December meanwhile sees the streets of Palma bathed in lights and studded with Christmas markets: a perfect moment to embark on a magical tour of the old town, setting off from our luxury hotel in Palma de Mallorca.
