When better than Setmana Santa (Holy Week) to visit Mallorca and experience all it has to offer? Our island is the perfect destination for fun days away with the family. This year, Easter Holy Week is from 25th March to 1st April. It’s a truly wonderful time of the year and the sun and good weather are almost a guarantee!
In terms of leisure the possibilities in Mallorca are endless. Here are some traditional activities that take place on the island at this time of year.
Holy Week is synonymous with processions and these are organised both in Palma and the villages. Unique to the Balearic Islands is the davallament: the representation of the descent of Christ from the Cross. This takes place on Holy Friday and it is one of the most solemn moments of the week-long ceremony.
We suggest going to the davallament in Pollensa: what makes it so special is the fact that Christ is carried down 365 steps in total silence, each step representing a day of the year; it is then led to the church of la Virgen de los Ángeles in a torch-lit procession led by the brotherhood of the church. It is a truly unique cultural experience you will never forget.
If sports are your thing, then Easter time is perfect for enjoying outdoor activities. We recommend golf as there are many courses scattered across the island immersed in nature and with spectacular views of the sea. At Zafiro Hotels, we offer special services for golfing enthusiasts. Zafiro Palace Alcudia, Zafiro Palace Palmanova, Zafiro Rey don Jaime, Zafiro Palmanova and Zafiro Tropic are specifically our hotels which cater for golf lovers.
Even if it’s low season and the temperatures are mild, you can still enjoy pleasant days on the beach with your children. Chill out while the kids have fun playing on the sand.
Easter also happens to be the time of year when the theme parks start to open again. You’ll find something for everyone here, with water parks, rollercoaster rides and zoos: enjoy a fun-filled day out with the family!
Zafiro Hotels offers an unparalleled range of sports and leisure activities and exclusive services to make your holidays truly unique. From organised activities designed to keep the children entertained to spas and sports for the adults… you are bound to find what you are looking for here!
