Now we are heading into Autumn and chillier days or even the odd rainy day might appear on the horizon all is not lost on this fabulous island. When the sun hasn’t got his hat on there is still so much to do. So, if you are looking for ideas for what to do on cooler days here are our top 5 tips.
Eat, drink and be merry
Tantalise your tastebuds with some of Mallorca’s gastronomic delights. The lovely Moli d’en Sopa is just one of many fine dining establishments dotted around the islland. If you are looking for upmarket tapa (think oysters and cava) head to Mercat d’Olivar one of the sheltered markets. You could spend hours in the food market at Santa Catalina or head to chic Palma and the San Juan Gastronomic market. You could even visit a local bodega for a wine tasting tour.
Relax and unwind in a spa
The perfect antidote to any stressful situation, or just because you can! The island is blessed with many lovely spas where you could enjoy a treatment or two, relax in hydropools and jacuzzis, let out the toxins in a sauna inhale the delicious oils in an aromatherapy bath.
Explore the caves
There are several extraordinary caves in Mallorca that are a must see. Spectacular stalagmite and stalactite formations are just the start at Coves del Drach where you will traverse the underwater lake to the heart of the caves and are serenaded by classical musical concert held on a beautiful illuminated boat. Coves de Campanet and Coves de Arta are both worth having a look through too.
Our favourite on the list! Palma is a shoppers delight with FAN Mallorca being just outside the city. This massive retail complex will only tire your credit card. Porto Pi nearer the centre is also a lovely place to relax with beautiful people and spend your hard earned pennies. If you are looking for designer wear at attractive prices try Mallorca Fashion Outlet. Just walking around Palma with your umbrella if necessary is a lovely experience.
Take in a little island history by exploring one of the many historic buildings scattered across the island. Whether it is monasteries, castles, palaces or traditional country estates, you won’t be disappointed. The Real Cartuja monastery in Valldemossa, where Chopin spent a winter, is worth a visit as is the enchanting manor house Els Calderers in Sant Joan.
Rain doesn’t stop play on the island, so grab that brolly and explore.
