It may seem like summer is winding down as most children return to school, but in Mallorca, the season is just getting started. In fact, the upcoming month of September is a popular time for tourists to visit the island because airfares are less expensive, the weather is beautiful, and the water is delightfully warm.
There are also several events occurring throughout the month. The beach clubs and nightclubs are still operating a full program of events, and many Mallorcan municipalities commemorate their patron saint in September, so you will have enough to do while on vacation on the island. Let’s begin organizing your Mallorca trip for September.
Weather-wise, September is among the best times to visit Mallorca. This month, the island bids farewell to the sweltering heat of summer and welcomes milder weather. By the end of the month, sunrise will be closer to 08:00 and sunset will be closer to 19:30, but you can still expect an average of 10 hours of sunshine per day and an average temperature of 23.6 degrees Celsius. September averages peak temperatures in the late 20s and very little precipitation, so this is still an ideal month for outdoor activities.
In Binissalem, the Festa des Vermar or Sa Vermada celebrates the completion of the wine harvesting season. This town is renowned for its viticulture, and its celebrations include an epic grape war. Come appropriately attired, as grapes will be hurled and crushed, and wine fountains will spray over the people – it’s as messy as it gets. In addition, there are wine tastings, grape-stomping competitions, live music, and a famous picnic where traditional “Fideus de Vermar” are served. This is a sort of paella prepared with short noodles rather than rice, lamb, tomatoes, sobrasada, and Binissalem red wine.
Festes del Rei en Jaume, held in Santa Ponca between the last week of August and the first week of September, commemorate an important date in Mallorca’s history. The major event commemorating the entrance of the medieval king Jaume I to Mallorca is a reenactment of his landing on the island by the entire town. In order to commemorate the arrival of the Catalan King to Mallorcan coasts in September 1229, when his army famously overcame the Arabs who had seized the island in the early 10th century, the locals will reenact the fight that took place at that time.
Enjoy the best beaches on the island
Since the summer vacation is gone, the beaches are significantly less crowded, giving you more space to enjoy yourselves. The sea is at its hottest and water activities, facilities, restaurants, and beach bars are still fully operational. Sound enticing? Portals Vells, Es Trenc, Playa de Muro, Cala Mondrago, and Port de Soller are just a handful of our favorite beaches.
Explore the island by foot
Now that the weather is more friendly, grab your hiking boots and get out! In September, hikers should expect to encounter less people on the trails, making this a fantastic time to experience some of Mallorca’s most stunning natural beauty. Experienced hikers should traverse the Serra de Tramuntana, which is home to the world-famous GR 221 “Ruta de pedra en sec” (Dry Stone Route). The ‘Volta des General – Port des Canonge’ is a popular example of the many short, easy hikes that can be found all across the island.
Discover Mallorca by bike
Mallorca has numerous lovely bike routes that allow you to explore the beautiful island. Mallorca has much more to offer than just sun and sea. It is both the largest and most diverse Spanish Mediterranean island. And – often only a stone’s throw away from the popular tourist resorts of Platja de Palma, S’Arenal, Cala Millor, Alcdia, or Santa Ponça – calm, unspoiled, and breathtakingly beautiful. With all of these attractions and the island’s various environment, it’s a good idea to explore Mallorca by bicycle. Experiencing the largest Balearic Island by bike is probably the best way to experience the true character of the island.
