Happy New Year from Mallorca!

That's it... another year is finally over, the fireworks have fizzled, the grapes have been swallowed, the champagne has been guzzled and the celebrations have come to an end. 

Have you eaten all twelve grapes? This peculiar Spanish tradition dates back to the 19th century and became widely popular throughout the country in 1909 when there was a surplus stock of grapes in the Alicante area. It's said to bring good luck for the new year, so we hope you have managed to gulp down all twelve of them!

There are no doubt plenty of sore heads out there this morning, so if you're looking for somewhere to recover for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner take a look at our Where to Eat Guide, our pick of the best restaurants in Mallorca or read some of our restaurant reviews for inspiration. 

We're all hoping that 2018 brings us plenty of travelling, sun, and fun times. If you're planning an escape to Mallorca this year, don't forget to check in on our accommodation options and our events calendar to decide which time of year you prefer to visit our beautiful corner of the world.

Have a very happy and prosperous New Year from all the team here!
