A Merry Mallorcan Christmas!
Christmas is a fabulous time of the year to spend in Mallorca. The weather is mild, flights are inexpensive, you can rent a beautiful property from us at a great price and it is the ideal season to explore the north of the island and, perhaps, property hunt.
December and January are the perfect months to really get to know the island; the tourists have vacated and local life is at its best. From markets to fairs, and local fiestas there is always something going on. And of course, the weather is great – most days you won’t need a jacket until the sun goes down. Although a sea dip might only be for the brave, or indeed the wetsuit clad, soaking up some winter rays is not by any account, out of the question; on that roof terrace that is alway a little too hot in the summer, a sheltered spot on a deserted beach or at one of the pavement cafes in Alcudia or Pollensa.
For the more energetic among us, hikers, bikers, golfers and climbers, this is the season to be jolly! With mild temperatures and blue skies almost every day, it is the perfect time of the year to indulge in a little winter sport, with seasonal activities on offer such as canyoning, paddle boarding, if you get lucky, a snowy peak or two to trek up and even a “San Silvestre” fun run in Alcudia old town on New Year’s Eve – don’t forget to wear your Santa hat!
Pollensa and especially Alcudia old town offer a comprehensive winter programme of events for all to enjoy including several splendid religious concerts and masses. Some of this year’s highlights include:
