After the busy summer months saturated with holidaymakers, autumn promises to be a bit calmer; parents are pleased to send the kids back to school, and there is once again a sense of normality!
Nowadays we are spoilt for choice with the huge variety of excellent restaurants; The new Peruvian/Japanese Sumailla restaurant in Port Andratx is gaining quite a reputation; we went for lunch and were blown away by the melt-in-your-mouth sushi and sashimi by the sea.
We are big supporters of products made on Mallorca. In this edition we meet local moviemaker Marga Melia tackling some important subjects through her films, and fashion designer Rosa Esteva talks about dressing some of the most powerful women in Spain. We fizz it up with Platònic to give your gin that local flavour and we visit a Sóller couple promoting a vegan way of life.
The cultural events reach a peak this season with the biggest art event of the year – La Nit de l’Art – and check out our art gallery guide on page 110.
For the fifth year running, the Evolution Mallorca International Film Festival will roll out the red carpet in November.
Find some inspiration from our fashion shoot featuring the major trends of the season, shot in an amazing location on Mallorca – Jardines de Alfabia (well worth a visit).
To make sure you get the very best experience of Mallorca, visit our website regularly to find out the hottest new (and some more-established) places to eat, drink and stay, as well as plenty of ideas for things to do and see.
