Majorca in November?

by brianpeartrees

My wife and I have booked a flight from November 11th to the 18th and are wondering if we will be able to travel around the island at all by public transport? We have not yet booked any accomodation but hope to find a low priced apartment where we can do some good walks from. Any ideas on location would be most appreciated.

Re: Majorca in November?

by annemariebyrne

I’m afraid the weather forecast is not great for the coming weeks, wind, rain and possibly snow on the mountains! However I have often gone to Mallorca with impending gloomy weather predicted and found it not as bad as expected. The good thing is that the weather patterns move fairly fast and you could have downpours in the morning and clear skies in the afternoon – it’s just a chance you have to take, so be prepared to be flexible. Just make sure you bring suitable clothes and footwear for the conditions as ranger49 advises.
As suggested above by ranger49 , Pollenca would be a good base, as would nearby Puerto Pollensa – nearby but on the coast with a lovely promenade called the Pine Walk. (spellings vary – Mallorca/Majorca, Pollenca/Pollensa).
You will find heaps of apartments to rent on www.puertopollensa.com, also info about walks, tours etc.
A good walking company that is run by Englishman Richard Strutt is mallorcanwalkingtours, there’s a link on the site above. They don’t seem to have any organised tours in November but you could ring him just in case. There are lots of easy local walks in and around Puerto Pollensa such as the Boquer Valley, walk to Cala san Vicente, climb up the Puig de Maria (from Pollenca town), the Atalaya de Victoria (nearer to Alcudia). The boat trip over to Formentor (from the marina in Puerto Pollensa) is worth doing but you’d have to check if they run in November.
The best weather site is www.aemet.es – search by map or check for Pollensa or Alcudia - it’s in Spanish but easy enough to figure out, or you could look on the BBC weather site.
With regard to public transport – yes you can travel around on buses although some timetables will be restricted in winter. Also you will have to get from the airport to your accommodation by taxi I presume, as it would be a bit complicated by bus – you would have to get a bus in to Palma and then a bus to your destination, this could be awkward if during the evening or night times and with luggage could be dificult. I have used a local taximan to get to Puerto Pollensa, I can pass on his phone no. if you email me. Some of the apartments offer an airport transfer service too.
Mallorca is a beautiful island and a great location for walking. I hope you have a great time, a little bit of planning and research will make it very enjoyable. If you have any more questions get back to me.
Have a great time! Anne Marie

Travel Tips for Majorca Island

Sunset in Majorca

by GypsyBessie

We did enjoy our holiday in Majorca. We had beautiful weather, met some lovely people and had a really good time.

I particularly enjoyed visiting Palma and Pollenca and seeing the interior of the island. The evenings were also very pleasant and warm, not to mention the glorious sunsets. The weather was wonderful considering it was October and I just loved the beaches and swimming in the sea.

Goats and Sheeps

by tina_vietnam

Enjoy plenty of 'määäähhh's of sheeps and goats surrounding your finca on the countryside. In the warm evening at sunset it (can) give you the feeling of being in paradise..very peaceful!. Staying in a Finca-style Guesthouse called 'Monnaber Vell' in Campanet..in the evening hundreds of sheeps surrounded the rural finca with pool...you sleep so well (you do not have to count them for falling asleep, I promise you!!!)

Local delicacies

by nigelw6443

Another speciality of the island is the Sobrasada sausage. It is made from the meat of the local pig, porc negre which is a black pig and seasoned with paprika from locally grown red peppers. The sausage would resemble a salami and it is soft, spreadable and totally tasty. If you get the chance you should try as a starter sobrasada in melted cheese.

Is the Siesta coming to an end ?

by sourbugger

In Spain you always had to plan quite carefully for the Siesta with virtually everything except restaurants closing downs for three to four hours in the heat of the afternoon.

I however noticed on this visit to Majorca that more and more places are opening all day. The small shops seem to keep the tradition but shopping centres, other air-conditioned shops and transport companies are increasingly ignoring it.

Perhaps this is due in part to the vast numbers of visitors from Northern Europe who can' quite get the hang of latin ways.

Para-sailing

by zandalee

Ok, that seams nice...but i'm afraid of heights...put it here so you'll know that you can do para-sailing on the beach. wish i had the courage! Maybe next time You can rent all the material on the beach. Or you can always pay just for a little ride. Enjoy the ride and then tell me how it was..:-)
