Rainy day activities in Mallorca 2018

What to do in Mallorca when it rains

Rainy day activities in Mallorca 2018

Mallorca is a popular holiday destination largely owing to more than 300 days of sunshine beaming down across the island each year. However, that happy statistic does still leave 50 days on average when the sun doesn’t shine, and visitors often struggle to dispel a sense of disappointment when their holiday vision of sunshine and sparkling sea is marred by rain and windy weather.

Luckily, bad weather passes through Mallorca quite quickly after a few torrential downpours but it’s possible that it will stick around for a couple of days of your holiday. So, to help you chase away the gloom and recognise all the fun still to be had when it’s raining on the island, we’ve pulled together a list of the best activities for a rainy day.

For all ages


The most typical day out when it's raining is dinner and a film, and you can do just that in Mallorca with the whole family. There are several cinemas on the island showing the latest releases in English. Most of them are in Palma, Ocimax and CineCiutat are two of the most common cinemas for British cinemagoers to frequent.

Do you love ten pin bowling? Well, Mallorca has a few bowling alleys around the island but Mallorca Bowling is the biggest and best. It also has a wide range of other activities and entertainment to get involved with, including karaoke, a playground and gaming machines, making it the perfect place to spend the day with the whole family.

Alternatively, you could engage in some retail therapy to cure your rainy day blues! Mallorca’s indoor shopping & leisure centres provide the perfect shelter from the rain after all. FAN Shopping Centre and Porto Pi are the two primary shopping centres on the island and have a wide range of high street and designer shops. There’s also Mallorca Fashion Outlet, a shopping and leisure outlet which offers some world famous names like Nike, Calvin Klein, Diesel, Levi’s and Lacoste at discounted prices. Here there are also restaurants, an electric indoor karting circuit and an indoor soft play centre for children.

For the kids


Palma Aquarium is one of the best of its kind in Europe. Kids will marvel at the variety of colourful fish and the spectacular shark tank, the deepest in the continent. There is even a play area dedicated to the small ones with a spectacular pirate ship, as well as a cafe and restaurant where you can have a pizza and ice cream for a tasty lunch break.

For the adults


What better way to spend a gloomy day than with an afternoon in a day spa? The one at Pure Salt Hotel in Port Adriano is one of the best on the island and it's been refurbished this winter. Indulge yourself and book one of their luxury treatments, if it costs more than 50€ you'll get free access to the spa complex which has a jacuzzi and various types of sensation showers as well as an indoor pool. If you feel like following up with a cocktail afterwards, you can watch the rain from the stylish Chakra Bar in the Santa Catalina area of Palma and order one of their Indian-inspired concoctions such as the 'Maharani', a combination of gin, watermelon liqueur, cranberry juice and a hint of vanilla... delicious!

Book a Spa/Massage

For large groups


Palma Escape Rooms offer adventure games where you need to work together to get out within the time limit. Groups are left with clues and overcome unexpected situations so it’s a great team building experience and certainly gets brains ticking.
