If you are going on holiday to Mallorca in winter and are looking for some recommendations of things to do or the top places to visit in Mallorca like monuments, coves, beaches or tourist attractions, we have put together the best selection for you:
The tourist season in Mallorca usually runs from April to October, so during the winter months, a lot of tourist attractions are closed, such as water parks, Marineland, Katmandu Park… And even boat and catamaran tours are unavailable.
The temperatures in winter are pleasant and don’t match the cold of other European countries. Even with averages of more than 10 degrees, it is still the coldest season of the year. There may be rainy days in winter and it’s is also when there is the possibility of snow. The winter conditions are perfect for taking part in a hiking activity, such as the one we have on the web, which takes us over the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains to discover the pretty village of Banyalbufar.
During the winter months, Palma Aquarium remains open. They also organise special family activities during the “puente de diciembre” bank holiday and in the school holidays. Other interesting activities with children are a visit to la Reserva del Puig de Galatzo, the Caves of Hams or Genova or to join a horse riding activity.
It’s not likely that we will be bathing, but winter is still an ideal time to visit some of Mallorca’s gorgeous coves. There is a more peaceful atmosphere without the noise of many tourists, making it a completely different experience compared to in summer. It is ideal to relax by the sea, take stunning photos, and even (only for the bravest) have a swim!
The capital of Mallorca, Palma, is one of the most visited cities in Europe. In winter there are plenty of activities available in Palma. You can take a guided tour of the old town, whether it’s a Free Tour or on a night walk. You can take the hop on hop off bus that will take you around the principal monuments and attractions of the city, such as the Bellver Castle, the Joan Miro Musuem or the Pueblo Español. All this without forgetting a visit to Palma Cathedral.
Another interesting activity that you can do in Mallorca in winter is horseback riding. Among the options we offer, there is horse riding on the beach, in the mountains around Randa or in the area of Puerto de Alcudia.
