Ah! How we love Mallorca, especially in the spring. Everything is so colourful! There are fields filled with bright yellow flowers. Meadows covered in white daisies and purple flowers. And trees with fresh green leaves. Oh and how about beautiful antique doors decorated with lila and purple bougainvillea on either side. The whole island looks just picture perfect. We love to drive into the countryside and go on hikes, but even if you take a back road in a small town you’ll probably end up in a field filled with flowers.
Another reason why we love Mallorca so much in the spring is the perfect weather. It’s nice and warm, but not too hot. And visiting the island off season means you feel as if you have the whole island to yourself.
Our advice? Pack a picknick-bag, stock up on water, sandwiches and some traditional esaimadas and make a beautiful hike somewhere on the island.
- Visit the beautiful garden of Hotel Formentor. If you love flowers, fresh vegetables, amazing views and a great lunch you will love to spend an afternoon here. Check out our post of hotel Formentor in spring here and another one here.
- Maybe not the best hike for flowers, but a beautiful one that ends in one of our favourite beaches. Big plus…there’s hardly anyone ever there. The hike is very pretty and goes through a beautiful valley. Check out our story here.
- Another favourite hike of ours: the one that starts in Deia (near the old water place) and takes you to Cala Deia and along the beautiful coast. It’s not always an easy hike – some parts involve climbing over fallen trees -, but it’s totally worth it. Those views! Check it out right here.
- After all those hikes you’re probably hungry. We love this place a lot and it’s right on a (family friendly) beach. Check it out here.
