Are you thinking of taking a family break to the island of calm? Visiting Majorca in winter is an excellent chance of getting to know the ‘real’ island, the Majorca that the locals know. Far from the typical crowds of the summer months, this little piece of paradise offers a much more natural and calm face at this time of year. We at Sol Hotels want you to enjoy a unique experience this winter with this list of recommendations on all the activities you can do in Majorca during your holiday. Are you ready to enjoy them?
A cultural visit.
To the capital, Palma de Majorca is the perfect starting point for a trip that promises to be exciting. Architectural wonders such as La Seu -the Cathedral of Palma-, Cort -the Town Hall-, the typical and well-known las Ramblas, the Plaza Mayor, the Borne, the Principal Theatre and the Bellver Castle, among others, are a must. In the city you can also visit some of the island’s most representative museums such as Es Baluard, Caixaforum and the Joan Miró Foundation. And for the fashionable neighbourhoods, try a vermouth in Santa Catalina and enjoy a good meal in some of the restaurants in the port and the beautiful old town.
The legendary Can Joan de S’Aigo, is one of the most popular coffee shops in Palma, and one of the ones that have made history in the city. Once there, typical things to choose are a good hot chocolate accompanied by an ensaimada (cream cake) or a delicious coca de patata (sweetened potato cake). Don’t go at busy times since it can get full very easily especially at the weekends.
A tour through the villages of Tramuntana.
The villages of the Sierra de Tramuntana are the most beautiful in Majorca, not only for being immersed in the impressive mountains and valleys, but also for their picturesque cobbled streets and the unique charm that places have when they know how to retain their true essence. From Sant Elmo to Formentor, each town is worth a visit. Some of the most popular are Esporles, Valldemossa, Deià and Lluc.
Winter is the best time to put on your boots and go out to see the Majorcan mountains. Some of the routes you shouldn’t miss if you are a hiking lover, are the reservoirs of Cúber and Gorg Blau, the summit of Massanella peak, the passes of Deià, the Sierra del Cavall Bernat and Puig Major, the highest peak in Majorca.
