During the months of February and March, the scenic beauty of Mallorca is glamorised by the beautiful almond trees, both in central and coastal areas of the island. Fields of pink and white color that blend perfectly with the green thicket that provides great food for the flocks of sheep, which are also very characteristic for the landscape at this time.
ametllerHighly valued by all visitors, the almond trees blossom out with the cold of the winter offering visitors a wonderful show, visible only for a few weeks a year.
Llucmajor, Son Servera, Bunyola and the centre of the island are perfect areas to trace routes of almond blossoms and enjoy this natural gift . In Llucmajor on top of the “Puig de Randa“, one can enjoy a spectacular 360 degree view over all the areas embellished by the beautiful almond blossoms. To make this trip perfect, come in the morning and taste a piece of the most authentic Mallorcan almond cake (gató) at the restaurant of the Randa monastery, freshly made by the most characteristic bakery of Llucmajor.
For those who prefer the coastal areas, try the route passing by Manacor to Cala Millor and further on to Son Servera. Throughout this tour you see almond blossoms along the road and you can see closely all the nuances of this florid vegetation.
And to end the trip you should try the typical Mallorcan dish “escaldums”, chicken with a fantastic almond sauce.
