It is Autumn in Mallorca. Can you believe that in just a short 2 hour flight you could be 10 degrees warmer?
Mallorca weather means that the island receives around 1,300 more hours of sunlight per year than most Northern European countries.
Thats an average of 3 hours more per day that you could be enjoying!
The arrival of autumn in Mallorca is heralded by the grape harvest in September. The town of Binissalem is at the heart of the Mallorcan wine industry and each year the arrival of the new vintage is celebrated by the nine day `Festa del Vermar´, one of the oldest fiestas in Spain. Rarely are Mallorcan wines exported so you need to visit the source to take a sip.
And why wouldn’t we want to celebrate the grape here in Mallorca?
With over 70 bodegas (wineries) winning prizes and international competitions, we are spoiled by the choice available.
Mallorca weather in October can still mean returning from a day at the beach with that sandy glowing feeling followed by eating alfresco. So pack your swimsuit, but pop in a fleece for dining alfresco in the evening.
Autumn in Mallorca is the first season of a calmer, less crowded island. The skies remain blue, the scorched earth is replenished and the golden hues of the countryside are magnificent. No need to push through the airport with millions of other visitors in sweltering heat – this gentle season means life in Mallorca takes on a more relaxed and comfortable rhythm.
Maybe even pack your walking boots? Plenty of walks to choose from on the island both for the experienced walker and the gentle stroller.
The pace has slowed for everyone.
A more discerning visitor arrives on the island to enjoy the the peace and calm and enjoy what Mallorca has to offer both on the beach and away from the beach.
So don’t store away those flip flops yet, come and visit our autumn in Mallorca and see for yourself.
