The Easter restrictions have changed time and again over the last couple of weeks, causing widespread confusion about what you can and cannot do in Mallorca during the Easter holidays from March 26-April 11. So here’s an update:

All social gatherings are limited to one household. Exceptions are: Minors can meet parents if they live at different addresses, as can couples if they don’t live together and anyone who has to go to a different address to care for others.

The 22:00-06:00 curfew is still mandatory.

Bar and restaurant terraces can open until 17:00 with capacity limited to 30% with a maximum of 4 people per table. Interiors are closed.

Large stores and shopping centres are open at 50% but closed on public holidays, except for essential products, but they can open on Saturdays with a maximum capacity of 30%, the same as for small shops.

Cultural Events & Conferences:
Capacity at all cultural events and conferences is limited to 50% and all processions are cancelled.

Regional competitions for teams in federations are allowed, and members of the public can attend, but capacity will be limited.

There is to be more flexibility for people leaving homes for the elderly and the disabled. Once vaccination is completed, residents can go out, but if they're away for more than 72 hours, they'll be given a PCR test on return. One person per day is allowed to visit.
