In the last leg of winter, the weather in Mallorca in February is perfect for planning a getaway – whether alone, with friends or family. Temperatures start rising while the chances of rain go down. It’s, without a doubt, the perfect month to enjoy the island without all the hustle and bustle of the summer months. And best of all, you’ll have no shortage of things to do.
Explore Palma de Mallorca in February
On your stay in the capital of Mallorca, you’ll have the chance to stroll along its main streets and through its squares. We recommend starting off in the historic quarter, with a wide array of tourist spots from which to choose. Highlights include the Palma Cathedral, known as La Seu, and the La Almudaina Royal Palace.
Stop off in Plaza Mayor to recharge your batteries in one of its cafes before taking a walk around the port. Hundreds of boats dock at its quays, their small size contrasting with the huge cruise ships calling at the same port.
What’s more, if you’re an art lover, the Fundació Miró is a must-visit. The personalised and exclusive tours will give you the chance to get to know Miró at his most intimate from the director of this foundation, who is also the artist’s grandson.
Hiking in February in Mallorca
Nature gives you the opportunity to discover another, lesser-known side of Mallorca in February. So, why not give one of these hiking trails a go:
– Barranco de Biniaraix Trail. Despite having an elevation gain of some 700 metres, this is not a complicated trail. It runs along a cobbled path offering jaw-dropping views of the garganta del torrente.
– The Beaches Trail. The trail follows the different paths of the Llevant Natural park, from which you can check out various unspoilt coves. You’ll be blown away by the sea views.
– The Torrent de Pareis Trail. This difficult trail runs through a canyon and a gorge to end at Sa Calobra beach. It’s like something out of a movie.
Before setting off, remember to check what the weather is like in Mallorca in February.
Visit wineries in Mallorca
Wine-tourism enthusiasts have no shortage of wineries on the island that are well worth visiting. If that sounds like your thing and you still don’t know what to do in Mallorca in February, why not come up with your own wine-tourism trail?
To kick things off, stop off at Mesquida Mora, which has become all the rage for the sustainable techniques it uses. You can visit this biodynamic estate and enjoy tastings with biscuits and an assortment of cheeses
Bodegas Miquel Oliver will also open its doors for you to check out this award-winning winery. They offer four different tours so you can learn all about the 13 different types of wine it makes.
The Bodegas Son Puig winery dates back more than 400 years, and its owners are more than willing to share their knowledge with the public. It uses artisanal techniques and produces wine in small batches.
The prestigious Macià Batle is also worth a mention. Top-quality grapes become stunning wines that are rated highly by experts.
Local markets in Mallorca in February
The selection on offer is as wide as it is varied. Plaza Mayor hosts an artisanal market in the second fortnight of February (Fridays and Saturdays). It has everything from hats, clothing, accessories, pottery and more.
The Ca S’Hereu estate in Son Servera hosts the Almond Blossom Fair during the first weekend of February. This tree is the common thread running through the products you can get your hands on. On the other hand, there’s no shortage of permanent and gastronomic markets all around the city. For example, there’s the Llevant market, the Olivar market, the Pere Garau market, the 1930 gastronomic market and the Ca’n Pastilla market, to name but a few.
Spas: well-being and relaxation
Whatever the weather in Mallorca in February, going to a spa is always tempting. So, if you’re looking to get away from the daily grind, rest, relax or enjoy some unique treatments, get yourself to a spa. The Fontsanta Hotel Thermal Spa & Wellness has the only thermal waters in Mallorca.
Belmond La Residencia is also renowned for its wide range of therapeutic treatments. However, if you’re looking for something a little more bespoke, visit Castillo de Son Vida. A holistic approach is at the heart of The Arabella Spa at St. Regis Mardavall, while Valparaiso Palace Hotel & Spa offers incredible experiences.
