It has been a busy few weeks for the yachting industry with the final push through charters, shipyard periods starting and Monaco Yacht Show last month. Some well deserved down time is just around the corner for most of you, so in this month’s issue we have decided to share some of our local knowledge of things to do in Mallorca now the weather is cooling down a little.
Top 10 things to do in Mallorca this autumn/winter:
- Monday 7pm yoga at at Bellver Castle
Get in touch with nature, and yourself, by joining in the class hosted by Yoga Marisol every Monday at the magical castle overlooking the city.
- Santa Maria Market
A great way to spend Sunday mornings. Stroll around the market amongst locals doing their weekly grocery shop. Also great for provisioning whilst supporting local farmers. Hand pick some of the freshest fruit and vegetables on the island, select local cheeses and sample iberico hams.
- Lamb restaurant
Es Verger is one of the most unique lunch experiences the Tramuntana region has to offer. Open every day except Mondays. The restaurant is situated half way up one of the signature twin mountains near Alaró. It is well known for slow roasted lamb, but other options are available. Be sure to try the flaming “carajillo with a difference” to warm you up from the inside out!
- Brunch at OD portals
Brunch is always fun. A 5-course, bottomless brunch for 25 euros is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Booking is essential! Why not check out the rooftop for 360 views of the area?
- Run a Marathon
Zafiro is hosting a Marathon through Palma on the 14th October. Are you up for the challenge?
- Tapas Tuesdays
Why not live like a local and give “la ruta martiana” a go for dinner this Tuesday night? With a “tapa” and glass of wine for 2 euros and a real Spanish buzz to the old town – how can you go wrong?
- Surfing in Son Serra
You’ve chosen the sea life and you love everything about it. Why not give surfing a try now the waves have started raging? Grab a board and a wetsuit and drive up to “Son Serra” to catch some waves.
- Hike from Valldemossa to Deia
One of the most beautiful hikes on the island. It is essential to receive permission from the local government beforehand. It will take you about 3 hours all round.
- Sangria and Paella at Ponderosa beach
Not quite ready to let go of Summer? Eat “the best paella on the island” among locals with your feet in the sand at Ponderosa Beach in Muro. DJ’s play on Sundays for the Sunday Funday lovers.
- Sa Foradada
The best place on the island to watch the sunset. Hands down. Drink a mojito and enjoy watching the sun set over the horizon as the rustic bar plays classical music. A truly magical experience.
The team at ACREW wishes you a wonderful time exploring the island!
