Early January in Mallorca

We'll arrive in Palma de Mallorca January 1 and be there for six nights. Please advise about sites / experiences not to be missed and what we can expect during that week on the island.

Hi, where are you staying?. Actually in Palma centre itself?. And will you be hiring a car or using public transport?.

There are plenty of activities going on over the Festive Season, so I'm sure that you will find something to do / see.

Just make sure that you bring warm clothes, we're on orange alert today for high winds (of over 100 Km/hour) and rain. Hopefully it will have cleared up a bit by the time you come over here.

Well...

Here is some general info for you, but it would help if you could confirm that you're staying in Palma or not.

Here you can find the Palma Christmas "What's on" guide. A word of warning, it's only in Majorcan.

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g187463-i183-k3260…

For example, on the 5th at 18hrs it's the Three Kings procession. On page 17 it tells you the street names where the procession goes past.

On page 18 it tells you a list of all the big Nativity scenes that are on display, and where they are.

Etc.

Other info:

Check "Digame" here http://www.digamemallorca.com/

This one is in English. You should be able to download a pdf version of the latest newsletter, but you will have to wait until nearer to the end of the month to get the Jan 2010 edition.

Check the official Balearic Islands website here http://www.illesbalears.es/

Click on the British flag on the top righthand of the page, choose "Mallorca" and you will get the latest "what's on" guide. Also, nearer to the end of the month click the "HIVERN A MALLORCA" icon (or whatever it is called) on the right hand side of your screen, virtually underneath Rafa Nadal's picture. This will take you to a link where there is a pdf guide in 4 languages of "what's on" for the whole of Mallorca. If you click on it now, you'll get the Dec 2009 guide.

Hi,

OK, so all the above info for Palma was correct. If you're using public transport, check this link for the local bus service. It will give you timetables and fares. I'm sure that you'll enjoy your stay in Palma in Jan.
