Mallorca in May

Taking it easy

Picture yourself cycling along the promenade of Palma Bay in the early summer sunshine. Perhaps you’ll head into the centre to browse around the city, and maybe later take a drive to the stunning West Coast for an al fresco dinner or picnic on the beach. When the mellow May dusk arrives, the light cast over the faded pink stone of Valldemossa is particularly romantic.

Mallorca has some of the loveliest towns in all the Balearics. Strolling their streets is a perfect moment to discover them.
