The largest of the Balearic Islands has become a popular travel destination in recent years. Rightly so, as it has the potential to satisfy the tastes of any traveler or vacationer. This Mediterranean island will fascinate you with its nature, wide beaches, rich culture and non-stop nightlife. Mallorca is one of the safest regions in Europe.
What should you see, do and experience in Mallorca?
Let’s start with the beaches. One of the most beautiful is definitely Cala Agulla, which stretches to the northeast of the island and is surrounded by pine forests. Cala Mondrago, a part-sandy, part-rocky beach in southern Mallorca, is also a great spot for snorkeling. Es Trenc beach is one of the three most beautiful beaches, where the virgin white sand contrasts with the surrounding rocks.
Mallorca offers a very pleasant climate all year round. It is characterized by up to 300 days of sunshine a year and an average temperature of almost 19 degrees Celsius. The peak season is of course in the summer months of July and August, but Mallorca also has its charm in winter, it is almost deserted and the temperatures on the beach are pleasant, the temperature range from 14 to 16 degrees.
If you long for untouched nature, head inland. There are massive rocks and many nature reserves. In particular, the adventure park La Reserva is suitable for both adults and children. Like the other islands of the Mediterranean Sea, Mallorca is also a great place for bird watching.
The island’s capital, Palma de Mallorca, is a pleasant, medium-sized cosmopolitan city. Its landmarks undoubtedly include the Gothic La Seu Cathedral, built in the early 13th century. It is a popular spot for couples who want to get married here.
For art lovers, we recommend the Fundació Pilar I Joan Miró, a gallery dedicated to the famous Spanish painter and sculptor. Although Joan Miró spent most of his life in Barcelona, he was born as Mallorquin. He bought a house and a studio here, where he lived until his death. The collection currently offers more than 100 paintings and 25 sculptures.
When is the best time to travel?
From June to mid-September, when temperatures here hover around 30°C, people in Mallorca spend their summer holidays enjoying sunbathing and swimming. In spring or autumn, with daytime temperatures hovering around 20ºC, Mallorca is an ideal place for hiking and wildlife observation, but swimming is still possible. Winter here is relaxing, sometimes rainy with temperatures around 14-16°C, ideal for a city break before or after Christmas.Zdroj fotografií: Shutterstock, Dreamstime, Unsplash.com
