Tourist attractions in Mallorca
One of the most common questions that travelers have, when thinking about coming in April to Mallorca is to know if everything is open. The answer is yes. As Easter is normally in April, most of the tourist places take the opportunity to open this month. This includes theme parks such as Katmandu Park or Marineland amongst the most popular ones. The water parks still remain close, as they don’t open until May. But we have also the solution for that… you can visit one of the best Majorca beaches and have plenty of space for you and your towel 😉
One of the top things to do in Mallorca is a boat trip. Unfortunately, not all the boat trips are available in April. Most of the boat companies doesn’t start until May, especially the big catamarans. You can find some small catamaran options for maximum of 12 people available, but sometimes they require a minimum of people to run the trip.
Some great boat options in April are the boat trip to Formentor or the 1-hour boat trip in the bay of Palma. Another option available during Easter is the Sunrise and dolphin boat trip departing from Port de Alcudia. Sea temperature is maybe not perfect for humans, but for sure amazing for dolphins around the Balearic Islands.
Beaches and walking
