Enjoying a December swim in Palma. | H.Carter

The cold front may have hit the Balearics on Sunday with temperatures dropping to just 4ºC in some part of the Mallorca, but on Saturday afternoon, one brave woman decided that is was warm enough for a swim in Palma.

And, she may well be back in the water this week with temperatures now forecast to rise again by the Balearic met. office.

It will be windy, but the cold front appears to have moved away and the next few days will feel unusually mild for this time of year. It’s certainly much warmer than the UK!
