As I walked around Magalluf this weekend and saw business owners mesuring terraces, carrying pots of paint and construction workers doing a good bit of work on the Wave House, I realised the season is just around the corner.

Hotels are also gradually getting the beds made for what is being said to be another great tourist season, such as the Aquasol Palmanova which opens this Friday, February 10.

Mallorca also has a wide range of attractions which will soon be opening their doors.
