It's here! Spring! The long days of winter are behind us, and with the changing of the clocks, the longer days are here, so we enter one of the best times of year to visit Mallorca. The temperature starts to warm up, and the island comes to life with blooming flowers. The average temperature in March is around 17°C, rising to about 20°C in May, but if you're in the sun, it can feel slightly warmer. Without a doubt, the best thing about this time of year is getting out and about and making use of the whole day. It's perfect for outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, and exploring the island’s many villages.
