FROM the end of January through the middle of February is a special time in the Mallorca countryside as the hills are washed white and pink with blooming almond trees.
Hundreds of thousands of almond trees across the island all bloom as the winter cold comes to and end.
While they nutty trees can be found in all corners of Mallorca, the two best areas to see a background of blossoms are the Serra de Tramuntana area and districts of Manacor.
The mountain areas of Marratxí, Bunyola, Santa María and Sencelles are very popular trails and hikes to see the winter blooms.
Manacor’s Sant Llorens and Son Servera also have many trails and bike routes to wander through the colourful trees.
It won’t be hard to find almond goods in the area either, with hand-carved almond wood items and numerous delicious almond nibbles, including cakes, butters and pastries.
