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.
