Son Bunyola: Mallorca's famous almond blossom

Each year, from late January through to March, Mallorca is quite simply blooming as five million almond trees turn into pale pink fluffy clouds across the island.

Known as the “snow of Mallorca” it is one of the most beautiful times of the year to visit and attracts photographers and artists to the rural towns and villages of Mallorca’s northwest coast.

Some of the best places to witness this jaw-dropping natural spectacle are nearby Bunyola, Alaro, Sòller and Es Capdella.

There are plenty of ways to soak up the pretty scenery and it's the perfect season for hiking and cycling as the weather is cooler. There’s an abundance of routes available from our Son Bunyola estate, but one of the best ways to make sure you get to see the very best views is for us to book you a guided tour.

If you’re wondering where all those nutritious nuts go, the almond crop is harvested between the end of August and the beginning of September. This local ingredient is then used in all kinds of tasty Mallorcan recipes, from almond ice-cream to almond oil.
