March: What's On & Weather in Mallorca 2022

Classic cars, sports, fairs and lots of fun

Featured in: | Jose Rains, Mallorca Reporter | Published

Sun lovers will be pleased to hear that March officially marks the beginning of Spring and the first of the seasonal hotels and restaurants start to reopen in Mallorca. This is also the time when sun-worshippers start hitting the beaches and wildflowers are starting to bloom.

The increasing number of events in the calendar, reinforce the island’s reawakening from winter! The SAR Princesa Sofia Sailing Trophy marks the first big yachting event of the year, and the Puerto Portals Classic Car Rally also brings a bit of excitement for petrol heads on the island. The Fira del Fang pottery fair should be on the agenda for a cultural experience, the Galatzó Trail Mallorca Mountain Marathon is a popular one for trail runners and the Fira del Ram is a funfair extravaganza near Palma, great for a family day out. 

Palma is a wonderful city break destination in March, with shopping, guided tours of the old town, first class gastronomy and so much more on offer. Outside the city, the outdoorsy people are making the most of Mallorca's countryside while the temperatures remain cool. Whether you prefer to visit the Sierra de Tramuntana,  inland plains or the city, the island has some wonderful hotels available at some attractive prices in March.

What's on in Mallorca in March?

Oris Classic Car Rally, Puerto Portals

Local fairs & fiesta's
Culture vultures should head down to Fira del Fang Pottery Fair, a quiet annual affair held in Marratxí. It’s a great opportunity for potters and other ceramic workers from around the island to promote their work. If you are looking to buy good quality, authentic Mallorcan ceramic products at a reasonable price, then this is well worth the trip. The event will also be accompanied by regional folk dancing and music concerts.

Mallorca's biggest fairground 
The Fira del Ram is the island’s biggest fairground and it returns to Son Fusteret, on the outskirts of Palma. This funfair is always a great day out for all ages, it has fairground rides for the little ones but thrill-seeking junkies will be pleased to know their needs will also be met.

Sailing events
The SAR Princesa Sofia Sailing Trophy is a huge dinghy sailing event where more than 60 nations compete in the Bay of Palma. Since its first edition in 1968, this event has retained all of its prestige and garnered great media attention – it’s always one to look forward to at this time of year.

Classic car rally
Mallorca’s classic car event of the year is the Rally Isla Mallorca otherwise known as Puerto Portals Classic Car Rally. Every automobile enthusiast should cast their eyes on the stunning automobiles taking place, so be sure to head down to the start line of the 550km route in Portals, which will transform into petrol-head heaven throughout the event. 

Trail running
Trail runners will be out in full force in the west of Mallorca as they take part in the Galatzó Trail Mallorca Mountain Marathon

Hiking in March

Hiking in Serra de Tramuntana

Walking in Mallorca
Hiking is one of the best ways to explore the island, and we highly recommend heading to the Sierra de Tramuntana to see some Mallorca's best bits. There are relatively easy paths suitable for beginners, whilst other hiking trails take you to the five summits that reach over 1000m, perfect for more seasoned hikers.

Markets in March

Mingle with locals at a market in Mallorca
Whatever the day, there is usually a market taking place in one of the towns and villages in Mallorca! Do note, this is a morning activity as they usually start early, between 07.00 and 08.00 and finish at lunchtime. So we recommend having breakfast in the town or village hosting the market and soaking up the atmosphere. If it’s fresh, local produce you’re after, then Mercat de l’Olivar or Mercat de Santa Catalina are open Monday-Saturday, you can even stop for lunch at one of the market stalls.

Tours of Palma de Mallorca
Pre-season is a great time of year to explore the capital city of Palma without the heat and crowds that come in the height of summer.

For us the highlights include Palma's La Seu Cathedral, Castell de Bellver, Palau Almudaina, Pueblo Espanol, Passeig des Born, La Lonja and the Paseo de Maritimo, not forgetting a little menu del dia for lunch at one of the city's top restaurants.
