Mallorca in August

Nature's gourmet

Food always tastes better al fresco. And just as well, because if you’re in Mallorca in August you’ll find yourself eating outdoors a lot. The island offers a myriad of foodie experiences, going hand-in-hand with the stunning variety of beauty spots it enfolds.

You could be savouring fresh-caught grilled prawns at a simple chiringuito by day, well-earned after a morning’s snorkelling in crystal-clear waters, and sipping cocktails at a chic Puro Beach Club by night. Breakfasting overlooking the bustling harbour at Portixol, before enjoying dinner at a seafood restaurant watching the sun set over Cala Deia.

Maybe you’ll work up an appetite taking the annual night pilgrimage from Palma to Lluc, following up with a blow-out meal the next evening in exclusive Portals. With all the time passed unwinding on the golden sands of Mallorca’s ravishing playas, the fresh breeze stirring your appetite, you’ll relish sampling the island’s culinary delights.
