Summer in Mallorca! So much more to see than beaches!
The summer in Mallorca is unique year by year!
Of course we have beautiful beaches and small bays and we do love to jump into this crystal clear water. But there is so much more to discover and experience this summer!
It doesn’t matter if you only come to relax and try the great Mediterranean food, want to discover our culture and architectural highlights or to live great sport experiences.
Here are some of the upcoming highlights during the summer:
17. June 2019 – WTA Mallorca Open
With five natural grass courts, the competition is set to be high and will bring some of the biggest names in international tennis to Mallorca.
Last year we saw Angelique Kleber, Anastasija Sevastova, Victoria Azarenka, Caroline Garcia, Carla Suárez Navarro, Shuai Zhang, Annett Kontaveit, Agnieszka Radwanska and many others at this important tournament.
Toni Nadal, the uncle and trainer of our famous tennis star Rafael Nadal, is the Tournament Director for the event and we might have a chance to spot his famous nephew on the courts training for Wimbledon while the competition takes place.

Summer Events in Mallorca! Sport events, concerts and Mallorcan culture!
From May until September – Deia International Music Festival – Classical music concerts at Son Marroig
The today known Deià International Music Festival had its beginning 28 years ago, when a mix of professional and amateur musicians came altogether for a workshop and began performing concerts in Llucalcari and the church of Deià. The quality of the guest artists have been growing continually since then.
Next to the Balearic Symphony Orchestra, plenty of artists from the island had already the opportunity to be part of the festival, performing at the Son Marroig Country House. Those attending have also had the pleasure of listening to well-known guest artists from all around the world.

24. June 2019 – Fiesta of Sant Joan, Mallorca – Celebration of John the Baptist across Mallorca
Sant Joan (John the Baptist) is celebrated throughout Mallorca every year on 24. June and most towns and villages celebrate this day, as it is a bank holiday on the island.
In a lot of towns like Deià, Muro and Son Servera, the patron is saint so their festivals usually last over a week with a lot of activities for the whole family.
In Palma, the day of the fiesta you can enjoy la Nit de Foc. La Nit de Foc (or Night of Fire) is one of the largest and most spectacular events on the island. The event takes place on the evening before and marks the summer solstice.
A lot of action awaits you in Palma, including dancing devils handling firecrackers and music and bonfires on the beaches. Pay attention to the well-known correfocs, when the demons with fireworks make walking through the streets. The event lasts into the morning.
You should also visit Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, where you can see the dance of Sant Joan Pelut, “Saint John the Hairy”, whose origins are unknown takes place. The figure of Sant Llorenç closely resembles the figure of Saint John, the Baptist who preached in the desert.
