Best time to visit Palma de Mallorca

With its beautiful Mediterranean climate, Palm de Mallorca is great to visit all year long. It does, however, get very busy over the summer season (June to August) as thousands of tourists and neighbouring cities’ locals tend to visit over this time. This generally means long queues, overcrowded tourist attractions and overpriced everything. It is a better idea to visit in spring (March to May) or autumn (September to November) when not only is the weather much more pleasant, but you would also have better luck at finding affordable flights and accommodation prices.

Health & Safety

Palma de Mallorca is quite safe, with just the usual minor incidences that occur from time to time so it is always a good idea to keep your valuables out of sight. In the city centre, you should also be aware of the flower sellers as somehow, when they offer you flowers, they often also tend to pickpocket you.

Travelling around by bicycle has become more and more popular, but so has the theft of bicycles along with it. If you decide to do your sightseeing by cycling then make sure to lock up all your possessions and try to take the bicycle along with you to your hotel room in the evenings.
