What to do in Mallorca in April

Visiting Mallorca in April gives you the chance to discover a magical island with a more relaxed vibe than in summer. You can also soak up the spring in the mountains and on the beach, at a time when they’re less crowded, although you’ll still be spoiled for choice. Keep reading to find out what you can do in Mallorca in April:

Hiking in Serra de Tramuntana

This stunning mountain, a World Heritage Site, is perfect if you’re looking for nature – and April, with its mild, yet sunny days, is the perfect time to head out on one of its hiking trails. 

Explore almost deserted coves

The Mallorcan coves are definitely among the world’s best, but in summer they tend to be overcrowded with tourists from all over the world flocking to them in droves. In April, things change! You can explore almost virtually untouched beaches, without having to get there first thing in the morning. And if the weather is good, you might even feel like going for a dip.


Dolphin watching

An experience like no other for the whole family is whale and dolphin watching at sea: dolphins swimming freely, playing with each other and sometimes even with the boat. Excursions like these kick off in April, so make the most of it and book your holiday for this time of year.

Trails around the Mondragó Nature Park

There’s more to Mallorca than just beaches! The Mondragó Nature Park is home to stunning variety of fauna and flora, which you can visit along several trails, with different levels of difficulty. 

Alcudia Cuttlefish Fair

For foodies, the Cuttlefish Fair in Alcudia is a tribute to this amazing local delicacy. Here you can try the different ways of cooking them, all of which are mouth-watering.

Sóller Orange Fair

Sóller is worth visiting at any time of the year, but in April you’ll be able to visit the Orange Fair, where this fruit takes centre stage in every dish. There’ll be no shortage of orange-related activities to take part in, all about this traditional local product.

Calviá Mostra de Cuines

For lovers of good food, don’t miss out on the Calviá Mostra de Cuines. The best thing about this event is that you can eat amazing food without breaking the bank. What are you waiting for?


Now you know what to do in Mallorca in April! We recommend renting a car so you can enjoy all these events and activities. This way, you can visit the different parts of the island at your own pace.

April Fair in Mallorca

April Fair in Mallorca, you say? That’s right: in April, a fair is held in honour of the Andalusian capital, in the municipality of Pollença (which has a beautiful old town and is well worth a visit). This fun three-day festival has everything from a parade, musical performances and horse parades, not to mention the Rociera Mass to close out the festival. 

At Easter, there’s a mediaeval tradition in Mallorca called “pancaritat”. For this, the village locals gather on the Monday after Easter to share food. If you’re lucky enough to take part, here’s what you’ll be eating: panades, crespells, rubiols and other traditional local foods enjoyed at Easter in Mallorca.

Weather in Mallorca in April

Mallorca has a Mediterranean climate, with very pleasant temperatures virtually all year round and little rain, except in winter. Spring is in full bloom in April, with average temperatures ranging from 16ºC to 18ºC. Perfect for hiking and exploring the island, although you might not be able to catch some rays on the beach (at least not for long) or go for a dip (unless you’re really brave).

Be warned, however, that the weather in Mallorca in April can be rather unpredictable, so we recommend bringing the right clothing to be on the safe side. It’s more likely to be a little colder in the evenings.


Swimming in Mallorca in April

This depends on the person. Some people will even go for a dip in winter! Broadly speaking, water temperatures don’t usually reach 20ºC in April – so although it’s not too cold, it’s not quite the temperature we think of when we imagine the Med either, is it? Having said that, the weather in April in Mallorca is perfect for walking, hiking and sports, to name but a few activities.

Come visit Mallorca in April

There are so many reasons to visit Mallorca, even (or especially) in April. Fewer tourists, local and gastronomic festivals, pleasant temperatures and the smell of spring in the air; there’s no shortage of things to do in Mallorca in April. Book your accommodation in advance, as the best options get booked up quickly and prices start to rise.

There are a host of other things going on in Mallorca in April and throughout the year, but these are some of the most recommended, allowing you to make the most of the weather at a time of year when there are fewer tourists. No matter what, don’t miss out on a trip to Mallorca.
