Enjoy an island that offers peace and tranquillity. Known as the “Isla de la Calma” (the calm island), it is an island of light and beauty. A refuge of peace, where life keeps a pleasant pace, and one’s soul can lose itself while contemplating the beauty of the island’s cultural and natural heritage.
In the summer, the sun and beaches entice you to relax. But Mallorca is a refuge of pleasure, joy and light at any time of the year. Nothing can overshadow the old blossoming almond trees, a typical sight during Mallorca’s winters.
Mallorca boasts an enviable Mediterranean climate. Hot summers and mild winters. In the capital, the yearly average temperature is 20 degrees centigrade. Up in the mountains the thermometer can plummet and it is not a rare sight in the winter to see snow on the highest peaks. During the winter and autumn there is moderate rainfall in the north of the island. The holm oak dominates the island, together with pine and olive trees.
Mallorca is the biggest of the Balearic Islands, with a surface of 3.640 km2. It has beaches and mountains. In the Tramuntana mountain range the highest peak, the Puig Major (1.445m) is surrounded by numerous other peaks that are often covered in white during the winter months, but they attract mountaineers and trekkers all year round, as they offer exceptional views from mountain tops that are surrounded by the sea.
The 550 km of Majorcan coast are another attraction. Coves and beaches with crystal water and fine sand rival each other in charm and can be enjoyed nearly all year round, both for swimming and taking long walks. The European Union has awarded many of Mallorca’s beaches with blue flags, recognizing their safety, cleanliness and facilities.
Palma, the capital, has one of the largest and best preserved historic city centres in all of the Mediterranean, it is a true mine of culture. The quiet streets open out into bright squares and mark out an unforgettable walk that can lead to the sea, where the majestic, marvellous Cathedral sits. As well as culture, numerous glamorous, luxurious fashion firms are the perfect attraction for a city break.
The many picturesque villages on the island are all different, each with its own personality, whether along the coast, inland or up in the mountains. They all preserve their authentic style and offer weekly markets where one can breathe in the islands heat.
Other attractions such as luxurious marinas, golf courses, relaxing resorts, a gastronomy full of Michelin stars, the awesome views whether walking or cycling, as well as a spectacular calendar of concerts, shows and summer festivals, make Mallorca an irresistible destination, even more so when remembering that Mallorca is one of the Mediterranean islands with the best access by air, with short, direct flights to hundreds of European cities.
