Many celebrities visit the island Mallorca. And why?
Mallorca offers a wonderful Mediterranean climate, rugged and charming landscapes, historic towns and hundreds of kilometers of coastline with sandy beaches, cliffs, villages, ports and caves.Wind
The sea breeze on Mallorca is known as the Embat. This is a local wind and caused by the daily heating of the land in contrast to the lower sea water temperature.
The air heats the land to allow the warm air to rise and thus the cooler sea air is drawn towards the island. The result is that the daily temperatures in the summer at the seaside will not increase too much, as long as the land breeze which blows against the Embat is not there.
