Mallorca, a perfect tourist destination for all seasons
Mallorca, the biggest Balearic Island, offers a wide range of gastronomy, culture, active tourism and different proposals all along the year. During the summer, Mallorca is full of visitors looking for sun and beach. There´s a taste for everyone, from the great beaches of fine white sand to the small and hidden coves of crystal clear water. Summer is also time to enjoy aquatic activities, as well as an extensive cultural and leisure offer.
On the other hand, autumn and spring are the perfect time to enjoy the island. The humidity and the heat cause that many species of plants have a second flowering before the arrival of the winter. Autumn is perfect for walking through its natural spaces, mountains, parks, and gardens. One of the most romantic is the so-called 'Bellver forest', the authentic lung of Palma. Spring is the time of blossoming in nature, also the beginning of an intense cultural and festive agenda that will continue until the end of the summer season.
However, the winter in Mallorca offers one of the most beautiful pictures that one can imagine. At the end of the cold January, its large fields of almond trees are in full bloom and an extraordinary vision occurs: fields are covered with white flowers that look like snow. Many painters and photographers come to the island just to admire this natural show, which has become one of the most characteristic images of Mallorca.
