Mallorca in May

Festes de Sant Sebastià.  This celebration of the patron saint of Mallorca lasts for two weeks.  In between the festivities, visit the mountains for adventurous challenges.

Mallorca In January...

 

Mallorca in January is all about Festes de Sant Sebastià (the patron saint of Mallorca).  For 2 weeks the island celebrates with cultural activities, sporting events, bonfires, music concerts, and an island wide community BBQ party where you can walk up to any wood fire grill and cook alongside locals.  Temperatures during the day range from 50 to 60 degrees (10-15 celcius), while evenings are around 40-45 degrees (5-8 celcius).  In January, the airport in Mallorca is blissfully empty.

 

January Is For You If...

 

You are a fan of cultural celebrations and adventures in nature.  Temperatures between 50-60 degrees are your comfort zone.  Mixing with the local community appeals to you.  You crave solo time in nature.  Walking through villages to learn about the history of a place is your jam.  Adventurous challenges are non-negotiable for you as they satiate your curiosity.  January is exceptional for those who want to visit when the airport is empty yet the island is hopping.
