September, the best month to visit Majorca

The culture, food, traditions and still-perfect beaches with the ideal climate. September is the best month for a visit to Mallorca for many reasons, but our favourite, without a doubt, is that the island is once again calm; back to its true self; its pure essence.

In Mallorca, the sun continues to shine bright and the beach is still enjoyable in September. It carries on being a holiday haven with blue skies. It is now when the nature on the island takes on an ideal tone for excursions through the plains and the mountains, whilst wine harvesting and food from the end of the season gives visitors the opportunity to try Mallorca’s best dishes. And, now that mass tourism has significantly decreased, you will be able to enjoy the island’s coves at your leisure.

Because this is the month school starts up again, Palma, the capital, once again becomes an important centre of creativity and culture; with an upcoming array of festivals and parties organised in the villages in summer.

Get ready because now is when the vermouth and tardeos (afternoon parties) come back. The bohemian markets; literary talks, plays, comedy shows, nighttime concerts and DJ sessions and return of Nit de l’Art; an event where new art works and galleries are given the go ahead all over the city. The date for this is the 23rd September and it will involve hundreds and hundreds of people appearing in the streets, selling art and enjoying the ever-warm climate, perfect for enjoying a couple of beers outside.

The most recommendable beach zones during this time are… all of them. Even those that are home to mass tourism in August; now they are havens of rest and relaxation. The coast of Palmanova, for example, is one of the prime examples of mass tourism that hides away a stunning island.

The beaches located in the north are some of the best, for example, Playa de Muro, Alcudia, Son Serra and Son Bauló. In the south, you will discover the indisputable Es Trenc and its neighbour, Ses Covetes. For white-sand beaches, you should head to Es Carbó and Es Caragol, near to the lighthouse of Ses Salines. The coast of Calas de Mallorca, Costa de los Pinos, Portocolom and, a bit further, Canyamel, are also unmissable.

For nature lovers, the Tramuntana Mountain Range opens up as a haven of freshness and adventure within this now-calm island: hiking routes, canyoning, climbing and cycle tourism for all preferences.
