Pros and Cons of Visiting Mallorca in February


February in Mallorca has its own unique charm and February a pretty epic time for photos with all the pink and white almond blossoms out. It’s actually been called the most beautiful month in Mallorca! It’s also super romantic!

The milder temperatures are ideal for hiking and cycling, letting you explore the island and cross some items off your Mallorca bucket list without breaking a sweat. Or, you can explore the best places by car if you want to have access to some heat! Plus, the cooler weather means fewer tourists, so you’ll have those scenic views pretty much to yourselves.

February is a month that’s rich in culture and festivities and hotels often offer lower rates this time of year, so you can enjoy a more luxurious stay without breaking the bank. 


While February has its perks, we have to keep it really with you about the downsides to expect. The weather is unpredictable, with occasional rain showers and chilly evenings. So, if you’re dreaming of sun-soaked, romantic beach days, you won’t want to visit in February.

Also, not all tourist attractions and activities are in full swing as it’s the low season. Some boat tours and water activities are off the table due to the cooler sea temperatures, really only kicking off around April or if you visit Mallorca in May. And while the island is less crowded, which is a plus for some, it also means that the nightlife is a bit subdued compared to the bustling summer months.

Lastly, if you’re not into local festivals or almond blossoms, you might find the island’s February offerings a bit limited to what you’re looking to experience on your vacay and you may want to find a different month or maybe spend fewer days on the island.

Things to Do in Mallorca in February

While you may not be able to hit up the beach like you would if you visited Mallorca in July, February in Mallorca still offers some excellent things to do:

  • Visit the Palma Aquarium – It’s indoors, so you don’t have to worry about the weather. Plus, it’s less crowded than in the peak summer months, giving you a more relaxed experience. It’s a great off-the-beaten-path thing to do in Mallorca!
  • Food Tour: February is a fantastic time to dive into Mallorca’s culinary scene. With fewer tourists around, it’s the perfect opportunity to book a food tour. Get a taste of local dishes like “pa amb oli” and “sobrasada,” which are two of Caleb and I’s favorite foods on planet Earth. We dream of sobrasada with cheese on toast – I mean cheese, carbs, and fatty sausage? STRETCHY PANTS ENGAGE!
  • Explore Palma: The island’s capital is a must-visit. With fewer crowds, you can explore historic sites like the Palma Cathedral and the charming streets of the Old Town without bumping into people on every corner.

If you plan to rent a car, make sure to do so in advance. We booked through Discover Cars and it was a great experience!

Holidays and Events in February 2024

This month is a vibrant blend of local festivals and natural beauty. Here’s a quick rundown:

Almond Blossom Festival in Son Servera (Fira de la Flor d’Ametler): Imagine a town square filled with almond-based products, from oils to crafts. This festival pays homage to Mallorca’s famous almond trees, which are in full bloom. Don’t miss the traditional Mallorcan dance called ‘Sa Revetla.’

This festival happens at the beginning of February!

Carnival Time – Sa Rua and Sa Rueta: The streets of Palma come alive with colorful parades and dancing. It’s an event that marks the onset of Lent. So, if you’re in the mood for some Spanish flair, this is your jam.

Mark your calendars for Feb 11th, 2024!

Light Festival at Palma Cathedral (Fiesta de la Luz): This one’s a visual stunner! On February 2nd (Caleb and I’s anniversary!) the sun casts an image of the cathedral’s rosette window on the opposite wall, forming a figure of eight. It’s a twice-a-year phenomenon, so it’s pretty special.

Valentine’s Day: If you’re looking for a romantic getaway, Mallorca in February is basically perfection. With almond blossoms setting the scene, you can enjoy a cozy dinner in Palma or a scenic drive through the mountains. 

So, from cultural festivals to romantic moments, February in Mallorca is a month that offers a little bit of everything.

Hotels get booked really quickly, especially around festivals, so you want to book in advance! As Palma is a great base, here are our top picks for accommodation near Palma:

For a mid-budget accommodation (our go-to) we suggest this Airbnb as it’s centrally located in the center of Palma, walkable to basically all the sites, and is a traditional, Mallorcan-style apartment with a beautiful balcony! We loved it here but it’s not the cheapest or most luxurious option!

Budget: If you’re looking to save a buck, it’s a bit hard in Mallorca! However, we recommend MHOUSE Boutique Hotel Palma. It’s located in the heart of the city right by the antique train station for a winning location, and even has the option to have breakfast included!

Luxury: want to treat yourself? We recommend the Puro Grand Hotel! The place oozes romance and class with its Arabic-inspired design and charming courtyard (I mean, just look at it!) The location is central and amazing too!

What to Wear In Mallorca in February

Mallorca February weather can be pretty chilly! Think of layers that can be easily added or removed. A sweater or hoodie is a must for those cooler evenings or days spent in the mountains. We also recommend bringing a day pack so you can carry the layers around easily! For your feet, opt for comfy walking shoes for daytime adventures and a pair of casual, closed-toe shoes for the evening. If you’re hitting the trails, hiking boots are a good idea.

You’ll also need to bring some rain gear such as a light and packable rain jacket. February sees a bit more rain, so better safe than sorry. Ladies, I love my rain jacket that stuffs into its own pocket!

Packings Tips for Visting Mallorca in February

Here’s the scoop on what you should know before heading to Mallorca in February, straight from Caleb and me:

  • Layer Up: Similarly to other off-season months like October, Mallorca weather in February can be a bit unpredictable and you want some warm clothes! A light, versatile jacket and a warm scarf or shawl can be game-changers. Trust us, you’ll thank yourself later.
  • Footwear Matters: Skip the sandals and go for sturdy walking shoes or trail runners, especially if you’re planning to explore places like the Tramuntana Mountains. We LOVE our Saucony trail runners!
  • Evening Attire: Closed-toe shoes aren’t just for daytime adventures; they’re also essential for those cooler February nights. Flip-flops? Save them for another trip.
  • Reusable Water Bottle: Staying hydrated is key, especially if you’re out exploring. Before you stress about can you drink tap water in Mallorca, February is one of the best months to do so!
  • Stay Connected: We recommend getting a Spanish SIM card before you arrive. It’s a time-saver and keeps you connected. We used World Sim before getting Google Fi.
  • Google Fi is King: If you haven’t tried Google Fi yet, this is your sign. It’s invaluable for getting around the island, and we’re obsessed with it.
  • Portable Charger: Since you might be out and about more, especially in the mountains, a portable phone charger is a smart add-on to your packing list. We usually bring this one as we love that it has built-in cables!
