A visit to Mallorca is special any time of year, but in spring, even more so. This season reveals a side to the island that you can’t help but fall in love with. Everything feels fresher, brighter, more invigorated. The seas sparkles beneath the sun, the water clear and fresh. Amidst the shades of green, colourful flowers burst forth, imprinting themselves on natures canvas. The smiles of the locals are wider and a sense of anticipation for the upcoming holiday season lingers in the air.
In spring, the weather is also milder, with temperatures not as intense as they are during the summer months. Thanks to this sweet spot climate, you’ll be able to explore and enjoy the beautiful nature around you, immersing yourself in the authentic Mediterranean lifestyle and getting those legs moving with some challenging hikes, a fun round of golf or a fast ride on your speedy two wheeled companion.
What there is to do in Spring
Ask any local, and they’ll tell you that March through till May is the time to get out and enjoy the island. It’s no secret that Mallorca is very popular with cyclists thanks to its impressive scenery, high quality roads and challenging terrain. And there’s no better time to practice this sport than the spring months.
If you’re a cyclist looking to holiday on the island, then Hotel Ca’n Bonico is the perfect place for you to stay. We have a dedicated space for bikes, as well as a deep knowledge of the best bike routes from the hotel.

Hikers are also drawn to the island this time of year, mostly because, as mentioned before, the landscape comes to life in the most beautiful way. We’ve compiled a selection of the best hiking routes in the south of the island here for you.
If culture and history is what you’re looking for, then spring is the perfect time to visit the Balearic capital Palma, with its mix of architectural wonders, famous historical sights and beautiful streets. Enjoy this Mediterranean metropolis in peace before the flood of tourists that arrive from June onwards. One of our favourite local markets to visit is Mercat de l’Olivar, with its incredible selection of fresh produce and stands serving local delicacies.
Spring at Hotel Ca’n Bonico
When staying at Hotel Ca’n Bonico, you’ll be able to get to know the quaint town of Ses Salines, with its authentic streets and agricultural heritage evolving around the production of salt and honey.
Residents and tourists meet weekly at the market on the Plaza Mayor, where you’ll find locally grown fruit and veg, as well as souvenirs and other island typical products.
Another important fact about the area: the Salines d’Es Trenc near the hotel was the first salt producer on the island, with a heritage stretching back many generations. This is exactly where one of the Balearic Islands most famous products is made, the Flor de Sal d’Es Trenc.
We’re excited to welcome you for your spring getaway!
