Mallorca in March and winter is behind us. Spring-like temperatures and increased sunshine coax nature’s buds to blossom and the island starts to bloom. Likewise, Mallorca’s inhabitants are getting out and enjoying this mellow period. From March onwards, free from the chill or the heat of a Balearic summer, you can appreciate warmth, sunshine and – hopefully – dry days and nights.
It may not be perfect (nights are still cold and the sea is still only 14°C , on average) but compared with Northern Europe at this time of year, Mallorca feels almost balmy.
