Summer is in full swing in July, and it's all about the sun, sea and sand for most. Sun worshippers are out in force on Mallorca's beautiful beaches, and there's a real buzz in the air in restaurants and bars on those balmy summer evenings.
The summer is reaching peak season, and the island is buzzing! Many of the islands towns and villages host their summer fiesta's which make for a great excuse to immerse ourselves in the real Mallorca. Culture vultures head to the mountains for Deia's International Music Festival.
Due to it being so busy in the peak season, we highly recommend booking any activities, events and restaurants in advance to avoid disappointment.
