February is here bearing longer days and more hours of sun. Claimed by many as Mallorca’s most beautiful month, it's when the island's illustrious almond blossom reaches full bloom. 

Whether it be a hiking holiday, a Valentine's trip or a city break, there will be plenty of local fiestas, fairs, art exhibitions and sporting events taking place over the month. Let’s see if we can tempt you!

Almond blossom season

With more than four million almond trees on the island, they are a huge part of Mallorca’s landscape. Almond blossom is at its most beautiful at the moment, which means Son Servera will be celebrating the XI Fira de la Flor d'Ametler on Sunday, February 2nd. This fair offers a wide range of almond-orientated products with stalls selling different types of almonds, arts and crafts made from almond wood, almond oil, almond-scented candles, perfumes and floral crafts made from almond blossom. It will be open from 09:30 until 14:30 and traditional Mallorcan dancers are expected to perform ‘Sa Revetla’ at 12:00.

Markets in Mallorca

Light Festival at Palma Cathedral

Admirers of Palma’s Gothic cathedral should head on down there at 08:00 in the morning on February 2nd for the Light Festival. The sun’s position at this time will cast an image of the rosette window in Palma Cathedral on the opposite wall forming a figure of eight. This spectacular display only occurs twice per year, on November 11th (the feast of Sant Martin) and February 2nd (the feast of La Candelaria), so don’t miss it!

Between February 1st and February 5th, the Festes Santa Agueda will take place as Sencelles celebrate their patron saint. The itinerary includes a parade on Sunday 2nd at 16:00 and one of Mallorca’s legendary ‘Correfocs’ (fire runs) on February 4th at 20:00.

Mallorca celebrates the onset of lent with Carnival (Sa Rua and Sa Rueta) which this year will be taking place on the weekend of February 22nd and 23rd. The main event, a colourful parade through the streets of the Mallorcan towns, happens on Sunday evening from 17:00. Keep your eyes on our events calendar for full details closer to the time.
