Fun in the Sun
Whilst in the UK and Ireland we look forward to the two or so days of summer, Majorca is blessed with a somewhat different seasonal climate. The sunkissed island almost guarantees that you can return to your day to day life after your unforgettable family trip to the Mediterranean with a glowing tan, unobtainable in the majority of Europe. Temperatures average a high of 29oC in July and 30oC in August with only 1 day of rain over the two months, combined with the charm of Majorca, it emerges as one of the most desirable destinations to go on holiday in the Mediterranean.
Whilst you’re away, let the kids play. You can find a wide range of activities to try during your stay in the Mediterranean with the main draw in the crystal clear waters. You can enjoy a wide range of water sports and boat trips around the whole island and especially in the Calvia region. Everything from paddleboarding and flyboarding to boat excursion to the stunning Dragonera island, just north of Santa Ponsa. Whilst our hotels in host a number of day time activities for each one of the family, there are many other things to try in the surrounding areas including mini golf, shows and on a cloudier day, a walk into the Tramuntana mountains will not disappoint.
Our hotels in Majorca are located in the charming towns of Santa Ponsa and Palmanova, which both boast an array of things to do during night time. Whilst the Gran Isla Hotels offer fantastic evening entertainment for all of the family, the two towns both boast an array of great bars and restaurants where you can indulge away from our delightful accommodation. Those that are seeking to go the extra mile can find the vivacious party scene of Magaluf, where the clubs are rocking until around 6 in the morning and can be found just a 15-minute walk from our hotel in Palmanova and a couple of minute taxi ride from Santa Ponsa.
One thing that is synonymous with Majorca is the wild cultural parties that take place all over the island largely featuring pyrotechnics, fire and demons, whilst the summer is the peak season for it all. The start of the Summer is marked by the celebrations of Sant Joan, which is celebrated all over the island which includes bonfires on the beaches and taking a dip in the Med at midnight. Another of the biggest festivals of the summer takes place in Santa Ponsa. The famous festival of the Rei en Jaume takes place in August, celebrating the successful landing of the Moors in the 13th century. The tradition still reigns strong in the area and is a night not to be missed!
