Surfing in Mallorca
Even if you do not think directly of surfing when you talk about Mallorca, the sunny island has one or the other hotspot for surfers, where the surfer lifestyle is noticeable in the ambience.
There are many surf spots all over Mallorca, and combined with a wind & weather app you can easily check day by day when you want to go surfing at the coast. Especially in winter, the wind for surfing is strong, and the number of suitable days for surfing is very high. Besides, winter surfing in Mallorca is very pleasant, since the sea temperature usually does not go below 13° degrees. The waves in Mallorca are generally pretty mild, perfect for beginners or people who haven’t surfed in a while. But also the pros get their money’s worth (look at the last hotspot which counts as an insider tip for experienced surfers).
