Winter In Mallorca
One of the most magical sights in the Mallorcan calendar has to be early in the year, winter in Mallorca, when the island’s four million almond trees blossom producing white and pink petals that fall to the ground like a covering of snow. Better than the real thing in our opinion, and in fact winter in Mallorca is temptingly mild at around 12 - 18 degrees celsius through the ‘coldest’ months of December, January and February.
Perfect time for Outdoor Activities
Typically the holiday season would run from May to October when temperatures are at their warmest, but year by year we’re seeing the season grow longer as well as an increasing number of visitors outside of these popular months.
The winter months are the perfect time for taking part in some of the sports Mallorca lends itself so well to. Hike the world famous Tramuntana Mountains, hop on a bike and follow the trails of champions like Bradley Wiggins, play a spot of tennis, golf or give rock climbing a go. The stunning scenery, cooler temperatures and quieter, off-peak months are ideal for the more adventurous.
Although some of the more touristy resorts will still see a number of bigger attractions close for the winter, many hotels and restaurants are now opening for longer, or not closing at all. The markets and shopping districts can be enjoyed all year round, as can a vineyard tour, and a number of local events and fiestas. Palma is still bustling and vibrant all year round, it is wonderful to see locals and tourists walking on the beach, still able to soak up some sunshine! In Puerto Pollensa, Stay Restaurant is open all year round and is great sunspot for sharing some Tapas by the waterfront.
