Primavera en Mallorca

From sporting events, fairs and markets to countryside excursions and picnics

Palma, April 2024.  Over the past 20 years Mallorca has moved away from its focus on sun and sand to a year-round destination.  Every season has its own charm especially in springtime when the days are warm enough to enjoy the island’s mild climate and outdoor living.  This is when Mallorca’s natural environment comes alive from its fields of almond blossom to spring flowers with their distinctive colours and aromas.  Herewith a roundup of activities from sporting, gastronomic and nature-related/ cultural events.

Enjoying Mallorca’s great outdoors

Picnic and wine tasting in the Sierra Tramuntana

It what a family-run agroturismo called Finca Rondaia is offering guests this year. Located near Esporles, just 15 minutes from the centre of Palma, it’s ideally located to explore the island.  Rondaia features 4 suites and 4 villas with kitchenette and private terrace.  Prices start from 257€ to 620€ per night.

Now is the season for fresh juicy oranges, strawberries, and cabbages – and soon, in May, apricots will start to be plentiful.  Terragust’s chefs prepare alfresco menus cooking with fresh island produce which is the best way to get to know the immense variety of local produce.   These menus are served – weather permitting – in the countryside, a unique and unforgettable experience.  The four-course lunch with wine and tour costs 70€ per person and15€ for children under 12 years.  For bookings and information on the Terragust restaurant.
