Summer in Mallorca means warm temperatures with little or no rain and wide blue skies so hold onto your hat and slap on some suncream.
The airport in Palma will be buzzing upon your arrival with July and August being the busiest two months of the year. Your transport will await you in the form of taxis, tourbus or car hire. With around 9 million passengers passing through the airport in the summer months you can expect it to be busy.
Summertime is about being as close to water as you possible, pool or beach, so that you can cool off regularly. With some 262 beaches to choose from you are spoilt but make sure to get going early to bag the best patch of sandy beach.
There are plenty of beach clubs to choose from if you fancy a treat and summer concerts ranging from classical ( the annual music festival in Déia) to rock, pop and jazz and even a few top-line artistes.
If you fancy a day out on the water and seeing Mallorca from a whole new perspective, there are plenty of boats to choose from whether it be a self-drive rib or a super yacht. All is for hire.
For an adrenalin buzz you could visit one Mallorca´s waterparks and cool down by splashing down.
Restaurant choice abound and the fruit and vegetables are bursting with summer flavours.
For a little local culture why not check out one of the local fiestas? The Nit de Foc ( Night of Fire ) is celebrated all over the island but the biggest party is in Palma at the end of June. Celebrated on the eve of Sant Joan, you will see bonfires, hear fireworks and witness `devils´ and `demons´ running through the streets.
Whatever you decide to do make sure you have fun. You deserve it. The days are long. The nights are languid and warm. So get out on that terrace, grab a glass of something cool and savour the best sunsets in the Mediterranean.
