The sea temperature also reflects the wonderful climate and like most islands situated in the Mediterranean Sea it stays relatively warm reaching average temperatures during the warmest month of around 26ºC.
Palma has a host of cultural attractions, one being Bellver Castle. The castle is only 3 km from the city centre. Construction of the castle started in 1311, it is one of the few circular castles built on mainland Europe. The Castle was first built to be the royal residence of the King of Mallorca but later in the 18th to 20th century it became a military prison. It now acts as the city’s history museum and is amongst the most popular traveller destinations in Mallorca.
If the traveller requires a more tranquil experience than sightseeing, then Mallorca offers miles upon miles of golden sanded beaches. The beaches in the more populated areas are very well appointed with lots of amenities and activities on offer. The traveller will find beach side cafes and bars that offer a wide selection of local or international produce. The activities on offer will vary on locations but guided Segway tours can be found at a few locations which adds that extra element to sightseeing. If water sports are of interest to the traveller then there are countless centres located around Mallorca and all offer a wide variety and the traveller can usually find snorkelling, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, wind surfing and scuba diving on offer. There is no need for previous experience as most centres cater for the novice as well as the experienced.
Then in the evening find a place to sit and enjoy the local drinks and food on offer and watch the night roll in.
