Celebrating Palma's patron saint, San Sebastian, the city comes alive on 19 January with live music and barbecues in the many squares, with Plaza Major hosting the biggest party.The festival usually finishes on 20 January with the famous Correfoc, from 7pm, which features devils and demons dancing and running through the streets with fireworks, bangers and sparklers.
The Cami del Correu trail is a breathtaking hike that follows the old post office road from Esporles to Banyalbufar. This well-marked two-hour walk will take you from the church in Esporles through a magnificent oak forest, delivering you to the stunning cliff-side village of Banyalbufar.
Set in the southern half of the east coast, Porto Colom remains a small, traditional fishing village that has so far resisted the lure of full-scale tourism. The picturesque harbour is lined with an excellent variety of bars, cafes and restaurants.
