Almond blossom puts a twist of Spanish spring on Majorca

February 23, 2021 Visit Europe No Comments Email Email

The imminent arrival of spring brings with it the blossoming of the more than 7 million almond trees in rural Majorca, in which recognised sites such as Serra de Tramuntana and Bunyola are covered in spectacular blankets of white and pinkish flowers. The island guarantees its visitors the chance to witness the beauty of this natural phenomenon from February to early March thanks to the mild temperatures of its Mediterranean climate, making the island a perfect spring break destination! The almond trees bring the Fira de la flor de l’ametler, or Almond Festival, each year where locals welcome spring’s touch on the landscape with markets selling almond products, such as Ametlla de Mallorca almonds and Flord’Ametler perfume. Visitors can also feast on the harvest, with almonds incorporated into tasty popular treats, such as gató, a Spanish almond cake with almond ice cream, almond nougat, almond milk or almond oil.

Visitors can explore the island on foot, by bicycle or by car to discover wonderful views of the almond blossoms that cover the landscape with the so-called “Majorcan snow” at this time of the year. There is a route spanning 10.8 km with never ending views of almond groves and the “Serra de Tramuntana” mountains in the background. This route includes the districts of “Selva”, “Caimari”, “Binibona” and “Moscari” in the North West of the island. This is one of the most recognised areas of rural Majorcan beauty, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2011. Here visitors can enjoy a wide variety of almond groves throughout 62,000 hectares of land. However, the blossom’s touch on the scenery can be enjoyed throughout the whole island.
