3 things you didn’t know about Mallorca

November 27 2019

Every time we book a holiday we check out the hotel we’re going to, the weather, maybe a little bit of what we can do once we’re there and that’s kind of it. And if you’re a regular at Cas Saboners you already know you can find tons of interesting information about what to expect right here, on our blog. But today, we will do some homework for you by telling you 3 things you didn’t know about Mallorca, the stunning island we call home.

1) Mallorca is a true paradise. And if you’ve been to visit before, you’d probably know that there’s something for everyone on the island. Over 250 wonderful beaches, an exciting mountain range, lovely towns and villages and a fun capital city. What you probably don’t know yet is that our Mediterranean island has a population of 907.000, but during summer season this population actually doubles itself.

2) There are two official languages spoken in Mallorca: Spanish and ‘Majorcan’. ‘Mallorquín’ is a local variant of Catalán, which can change a little bit according to the location. Both, Spanish and Majorcan, are equally important, but locals are more used to speaking and teaching their children ‘Majorcan’.

3) There are 300 days of sunshine a year in Mallorca. It is crazy to think that of a total of 365 days, 300 are actually sunny days on the island, but that’s exactly right. Even though the temperatures drop in Winter, the sun never really leaves the island, as it shows up even after pouring rain and stormy afternoons. We can always relay on the sun to shine on Mallorca!

We could add some other things you might not know about Mallorca, like the fact that tennis pro Rafa Nadal was born and raised in Mallorca or that the island has one of the world’s largest underground lakes that goes by ‘Cuevas del Drach’, that Mallorca holds Spain’s only circular castle or that there are 262 beaches on the island, but we will leave this for you to discover when visiting Mallorca this year
