September 1st is the official start of autumn; summer (if we even had one at home) is technically over for another year. Yes, we can now start searching for the raincoat, look forward to windswept commutes to work and torrential downpours. Actually, that sounds pretty much like the summer we’ve just had.
You know where it won’t be raining in September? Majorca. The Balearic island is just as beautiful in the autumn as it is in the summer, so what’s stopping you having a cheeky week of sun this September? If you needed any more persuading we’ve come up with 7 reasons why you should be ditching Blighty for Spanish shores this month.
It’s the perfect temperature
During the height of summer Majorca can sizzle at above 30°C but visiting in September means you’re met with a much more refreshing heat. During the day temperatures will be averaging around the mid-20s making it perfect for lounging on the beach or around the pool.
As we’ve come to expect from Majorca, you are unlikely to see a cloud in the sky and rain is relatively unheard of*. This kind of weather is perfect is you’re travelling with toddlers or young children or if you don’t fancy spending an entire holiday in the shade.
*we can’t guarantee you won’t see a drop of rain.
You’ll find total peace and quiet
Unsurprisingly, Majorca is much quieter at this time of year. The peak months of June, July and August have been and gone so the more popular resorts will be a little less crowded during September. So forget the mad morning rush to grab a sunbed or a long queue to get an ice cream, this type of break is all about relaxation.
The beaches will also be a little quieter so you can make the most of the warm Mediterranean waters.
The beaches are still amazing
Speaking of beaches, just because the peak holiday season is over doesn’t mean the beaches are any less beautiful. In fact, being a bit quieter makes them even more wonderful. Head to the north to enjoy the bliss of Port de Pollenca’s main beach overlooking the marina or build castles with the kids on the white sands of Alcudia.
The waters of the Mediterranean Sea will still be warm making the urge to take a dip irresistible.
Party in the biggest closing parties
The party never stops in Majorca (well it does but not just yet) and Magaluf is still thriving throughout September. The infamous BCM Planet Dance is hosting nights across the month with some of the world’s biggest DJs and artists appearing. Stormzy, DJ Sammy, Danny Howard and Sophie Francis are just some of the names performing during the month as BCM rounds off the season in style.
It is not just BCM of course but if you’re looking the best closing parties on the island, there is only one place to be.
Sightsee in the capital Palma
A slight departure from partying in Magaluf, granted, but a sightseeing visit to the capital of Palma should definitely be on your itinerary. You could make a trip into a simple city break exploring the quirks of Majorca’s biggest city and thanks to the cooler temperatures it won’t be as energy sapping.
Walk by the marina and enjoy tapas in the beautiful old town, explore the famous cathedral and then watch the sun go down with a cocktail or two, a holiday to Majorca doesn’t always have to be a beach holiday.
You can create your own road trip
Add a sense of freedom to your break in Majorca by hiring a car and hitting the open the road. Visit the old town of Pollenca and Inca in the north or see the beautiful rural setting of Andratx and Cala Millor. With the island comprising of just 1,000 square miles, you can cover a lot of Majorca in a single holiday.
Maybe stop off in a quaint village and discover a side of the Balearic Islands that many people may never see.
Explore the landscape
Majorca has a stunning landscape just waiting to be explored so while the temperatures are fairly pleasant grab your hiking boots and head for the hills. Walk from Felanitx up to the sacred Monastery of San Salvador or enjoy a gentle stroll around La Goya Nature Park in Port de Pollenca or breathe in the coastal views of Sa Mola.
There is so much to explore and September is the perfect time to see it.
