Mallorca in September

Far from ordinary

As the leaves are turning in Northern Europe signalling the arrival of autumn, Mallorca remains in a long, lazy summer. With the weather sultry and the Balearic sun still high in the sky, this is a land of morning yoga on the beach, sunny rounds of golf and cocktails at sunset.

Escape the back-to-work frenzy and instead find yourself admiring the 360-degree views from an ancient mountain refuge, hurling grapes at an annual grape festival or marvelling at a natural underground cave. There are so many ways to experience the extraordinary on the largest Balearic island. Simply being in unspoiled locales such as Cap de Formentor, San Telmo and the virgin beach of Es Coll Baix lifts the spirits.

Take time for an al fresco lunch in the sparkling bay of Illetes or a stroll around Portals Sunset Market and you’ll feel a million miles from the office.
