Trekking Routes in Mallorca at Easter

Easter in Mallorca offers the opportunity to enjoy longer days with more daylight hours and better weather. A good plan is to go hiking as a couple, with friends or with family. A hiking trail is an excellent opportunity to be in contact with nature.

The options of hiking routes in Mallorca are endless, and it all depends on your level of ability, the people accompanying you and how much time you would like to spend hiking. Our top choices are hikes at Puig des Teix, Puig de Galatzo or even lesser-known hills such as Puig de Son Fe in Alcudia. As we are talking about things to do at Easter, we can assume that you have plenty of time and are off work, therefore you can enjoy a good, long hike or you can take your time on one of the easier ones with children.

Which are the best things to do with children over Easter?

Easter is a time when children have school holidays, the weather is normally mild and families have time to do things together. Here are a few suggestions…

Enjoy Mallorca’s Beaches

mallorca beaches in Easter

At Easter, the weather in Mallorca is not yet the best for swimming, but sometimes we enjoy high enough temperatures for at least a getaway to the beach to sunbathe a little and enjoy the seashore, taking advantage of the fact that the island is still relatively quiet on the tourist front. From click-mallorca.com we advise you to go to one of the beaches with large sandbanks, because the options are more varied, and they are not limited to just swimming and sunbathing. You can also take walks along the beach or have a drink at one of the beach bars. Some of the beaches in Mallorca that we recommend:

  • Playa de Port de Alcudia
  • Playa de Muro
  • Playa de Cala Millor
  • Playa de Palma

Another option is to enjoy some of the beautiful coves of Mallorca, and combine it with a hiking trail. Some suggestions are the beach of those of Coll Baix, Cala Murta, Cala Magraner or Cala Petita.

Boat Tours in Mallorca

A day at sea is an excellent option, and at Easter some boat trips and excursions are already offered in Mallorca with different routes and pretty itineraries. Among the options available for Easter we have the following (if you click on the name of each activity, you have more details):

It is true that in 2022 there are not as many options for boat trips as in other years, since many of the boat companies in Mallorca have decided to wait until later to start their activity.

Of caves in Mallorca there are more than 200 alternatives, although only five caves are open to the public for visits. The Caves open to the public in Mallorca for this Easter are the following four.

Discover the “Casas Santas”

Casas Santas en Mallorca

The “holy houses” are unique monuments in which the religious images are displayed during the Easter period when there are no masses. Apparently it is a very old tradition linked to Holy Week and has its origin in the moment in which the procession deposited the Holy Host in an urn that is known as a monument, although in Palma the Mallorcan term “Casa Santa” is used.

Touring the old town of Palma to visit these holy houses in the different churches, parishes and convents can be an alternative plan over Easter, which allows us to learn more about this tradition. Some recommendations: Santa Eulalia church, La Seu, Santa Clara convent, Santa Magdalena, San Miguel Church…

Visit Mallorca’s Museums At Easter

In Mallorca we have a very interesting selection of museums. Below we present a selection of some lesser known museums whose visit we recommend at Easter:

  • Manacor History Museum: Just before the start of Easter Week, this musuem has announced that it will become the first Balearic museum with an accessibility plan, and that they hope to have it completed in 3 years. The museum consists of the Torre dels Enagistes (its main headquarters), the Molí den Fraret (where the ethnographic complex is located) and the Son Peretó and s’Hospitalet Vell sites. They are organizing free guided tours, and we recommend calling 971843065 to sign up.
  • Museu de Mallorca: Located in the centre of Palma, it is a museum that is unknown to many. Now every Thursday they organize guided tours at 5:00 p.m., which are free and with limited capacity. And from March 21, family visits every Sunday at 12:00. You can call to book: 971177838.
  • Museo de Arte Sacro de Mallorca: located in the Episcopal Palace of Palma, next to the Cathedral. About a year ago it was completely remodeled, and it houses unique pieces such as the Jewish Rimmomins, works by Gaudí and medieval altarpieces.

An Excursion to Lluc at Easter

Lluc is one of the most special and sacred places in Mallorca, and another of our proposals for activities for Easter. There are many things to see and do in Lluc, such as visiting its church, listening to the Blauets sing or taking a walk around the Sanctuary. In addition, the Sanctuary always organizes special activities at Easter, such as markets, visits… that you can find on the Facebook page of the Lluc Sanctuary.

Then you can take a short excursion around the area, for example to the Cometa des Morts or to the famous Camell rock. They are ideal excursions to do as a family, both for their duration and for the level of difficulty (easy) they have.

To conclude our suggestions and activities for Easter in Mallorca, two of the most popular activities:

Easter Processions

Procesiones de semana santa en mallorca

One of the images of Easter in Spain are the processions that have their origin in the resurrection of the Holy Christ, being a tradition from medieval times, and that bring together all brotherhoods in the towns and cities of Mallorca year after year. Palm Sunday kicks off the festivities, which officially end the following Sunday, Easter Sunday. During this week, every town in Mallorca has its processions, and in some towns there are the Davallaments (the descent of Christ from the cross), which take place on Good Friday.

The most interesting processions are those of the capital of the island, in Palma, as they have a greater number of brotherhoods, in fact on Maundy Thursday about four thousand people could participate in the processional parades. But those of Alcudia and Pollensa also stand out, to cite two other examples.

Fira del Ram

Feria del Ram Mallorca

As Easter gets closer, the Fira del Ram fairground appears and is set up in the Son Castello industrial estate in the Son Fusteret area.
