Mallorca´s top activities to do in winter
Mallorca is one of the places that despite the winter months do not lose their charm or attractiveness. Even in winter Mallorca offers its visitors countless activities. And the mild Mediterranean climate is not disappointing even in the low season. Those who want to get to know the "real Mallorca" have the best opportunity during the winter months!
A city trip through Palma is the perfect choice to get to know all the sights of the capital without crowds. The museum Es Baluard offers modern and contemporary works of art and is located directly on the harbour promenade. The colourful metropolis of Palma is teeming with art galleries. In the Fundació Pilar y Joan Miró, in Palma's suburb Cala Major, you can visit the studio of the world famous artist.
The cathedral "La Seu" offers a great architectural and artistic heritage. Right next to it the royal palace "Palacio Real de la Almudaina" is enthroned. These two landmarks of the city are a must when you visit Palma! Both sights can be visited comfortably on the same day.
If you are looking for a place of peace or nature in Palma, you should definitely visit the gothic castle "Castell de Bellver". The round fortress is unique in Spain and rewards you with a breathtaking view over the island's capital.
Palma is also a paradise for shopping lovers in winter. Whether the popular shopping mile Avenida Jaime III, the chic Paseo del Borne or Santa Catalina with its extraordinary boutiques. The choice is large and the mixture of old-established Majorcan retailers and modern fashion labels in all styles and price ranges make Palma particularly attractive as a "shopping hotspot".
A gastronomic tour of Palma is a fantastic way to enjoy new culinary experiences, as the island's capital offers an excellent gastronomic scene. Even though tapas and paella are the epitome of Spanish cuisine, we recommend you try Mallorca's cuisine. Especially in winter the rustic Majorcan cuisine convinces with delicious dishes.
If you prefer adventurous excursions with great views, you should definitely take a hike through the Tramuntana Mountains. The cooler months offer the perfect climate and ideal conditions for hiking. With a variety of routes with different levels of difficulty, every hiking enthusiast will find the right tour.
Mallorca is also a paradise for cyclists in winter. You can cycle for hours without disturbing traffic through magnificent landscapes and enjoy the view of the Mediterranean Sea. The area of Cala Millor is particularly suitable because of the immaculate asphalt and the low traffic.
For active golfers the winter time on Mallorca is no longer an insider tip! Mallorca offers a total of 24 golf courses for beginners and experienced golfers. One of the most beautiful golf courses is the 18-hole course "Club de Golf de Alcanada" in the north of Mallorca. The golf course is located directly at the sea and offers a unique view of the island of Alcanada with its lighthouse.
