The Christmas lights launched in Palma on Thursday, which means the Christmas festivities have officially started in Mallorca. This is the most magical time of the year on the island thanks to the various Christmas markets, concerts and theatre productions to look forward to.

Here's our selection of the best things to do this December in Mallorca. Keep an eye on our site as we'll be publishing a more detailed article about What's On during Christmas and New Year later in December!

Get into the festive spirit at a Christmas market

Palma’s Plaça Major’s Christmas Market Market is already open, so you can get your hands on some delightful Christmas decorations and trinkets. It’s one of Mallorca’s more traditional Spanish markets, open daily between 10:00 and 21:00 right the way up to January 6th 2020. 

The ‘show village’ of Pueblo Español once again transforms into a magical winter wonderland between December 5th and 15th 2019 between 12:00 and 23:30 and is one of the biggest Christmas events on the island. Whilst adults have to pay €5 entry for this particular market, children up to 12 years old are admitted for free. You can expect some top-quality gift stalls, food and drinks stands and, of course, plenty of opportunities to enjoy some mulled wine with friends.

Imagine Christmas choirs, artistic performances, live music, a gastronomic market and a playground with a bouncy castle for the little ones. Tempted? Son Amar’s Christmas fair between the 13th and 15th December 2019 is also expected to be one of the best on the island!

The upmarket Puerto Portals Christmas Market takes place between December 18th 2019 and January 6th 2020. It’s a stylish affair with high-end stalls, affluent patrons, bubbles flowing but is completed with exceptional entertainment for the little ones.

Alaro Christmas market pops up for the weekend of December 14th and 15th 2019. The main square will be a jovial place to be thanks to a fantastic line-up off music acts, as well as a quality selection of festive stalls selling artisan products and local culinary delights.

Events Calendar for Mallorca

Get your skates on

Son Amar have created their very own Winter Wonderland where families can go ice skating with the incredible backdrop of the Royal terrace whilst skating around their famous water fountains. The ice-skating rink will be open every weekend (Friday night 17:00 – 22:00, Saturday and Sunday all day 12:00 – 22:00) until mid-February.

Palma’s main ice rink is one of the biggest and best. At 420m2, ‘Ice Park Mallorca’ is open every day throughout December (10:00-22:00) and can be found by the station at Parc de Ses Estaciós. Prices vary depending on the number of people skating. 

Alternatively, some of the island's ports host their own ice skating rings. On December 20th, Port Adriano’s ice theme park opens its 300m2 ice skating rink and will be open every day up until January 7th from midday until 20:00, except for the 25th and 31st when it closes at 18:00. It is free to use! Puerto Portals popular ice skating rink returns from December 18th, right through to January 6th.

Book Things To Do

Theatre productions & music concerts

There’s a whole host of theatre productions and music concerts taking place around the island throughout the month of December. Whether you are in the mood for something festive or want to escape the Christmas festivities, there will be something on the menu to tickle your taste buds.

Son Amar will be putting on a special Christmas Circus Dinner Show on Christmas Day, with ticket prices ranging between €15 and €165 depending on the package you choose. Palma Auditorium has a tempting line-up with crowd-pleasers like ‘Queen Forever – Bohemian Rhapsody Tour’ stopping by on December 13th and the ‘Abba Tribute’ on December 21st. If you are looking for something for the whole family to enjoy, ‘La Reina de las Nieves / The Queen of the Snow’ will be a hit on December 14th and 15th, and Aladdin will be making an appearance on December 21st and 30th. It’s also worth mentioning the chance to enjoy top-class jazz at the moment as Alternatilla Jazz Festival is currently taking place in Palma until December 8th.
