Sun lovers will be pleased to hear that March officially marks the beginning of spring and many 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 jam-packed calendar of events highlighted below reinforces the island’s reawakening from winter.

What's the weather like in Mallorca in March?

You can expect an average of seven hours of sunshine per day and temperatures reaching the high teens, so it's pleasantly warm. As the sun rises earlier, there is also an increase in the number of tourists visiting the island. It’s interesting to see them in shorts and even trying to soak up some rays on the beaches, whilst the locals still don their winter coats.

What to do in Mallorca in March?

It's a wonderful month to enjoy Mallorca's countryside, whether it be hikingcycling or more adventurous activities like abseiling and canyoning, the climate couldn’t be more perfect.

Looking for the perfect country escape? Perhaps the stunning five-star Carrossa Hotel Spa Villas could tempt you. It has reopened for its 2020 season and, with the Serra de Levant and Parc Natural de S'Albufera on its doorstep, there’s plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with some of Mallorca’s most impressive countryside. Alternatively, sit and admire the spectacular views from the various terraces or simply relax in the spa.

If you like horseriding, the three-day all-inclusive trail riding holiday with Hipica Formentor should be on your radar. They are hosting a trip between the 8th and 10th March this month but if you can’t make this one, fear not, there are more coming up in April and May. 

As the sun shines bright, this is also the time to dine al-fresco style. Seaside restaurants start filling up this month so beat the summer crowds and get down to places like Cassai Beach House in Colònia de Sant Jordi.
