Few questions from a first timer....


I'm travelling to Majorca in October this year, arriving on 21st. Never been before so got a few questions if anyone would be kind enough to help me out ;-)

1) What is the general temperature in October? I'm not expecting blazing heat, but will we be likely to get some use out of the pool and the sea? My son will be keen to get in there!

2) We're staying at the Son Baulo Hotel. I understand that a bus to Alcudia stops outside here, any ideas how much it is return per adult? I'm assuming I wouldn't pay for my 4 year old son?

3) Are there any buses/trains from here (or local area) to Palma at all? We're keen to spend a day there?

4) I believe there is a nature reserve next to the hotel. Has anyone been here before? We're hoping to rent bikes and spend some time cycling round there, does anyone know the costs of this?

Is there anything else recommended to do in the local area. There is myself, my mum and my 4 year old son

Thanks in advance

Ok quickly;

Late October

1) low - mid 20's, high 20's on a good day. Lows around 15 after midnight. Rain is likely for at least one of those days.

2) Bus to Pto Alcudia about 3 Euros per person

3) To Palma, bus, but no direct train. I's take the bus to Sa Pobla (~20 mins) and the train to Palma (~1 hour) from there. Goes directly to the center of Palma and is quite comfortable.

4) The Albufera nature preserve is very close - probably within walking distance. But it's big, so consider it a hiking trip.

The beach is major attraction. By late October, the tourist season will be almost completely gone. But frankly, IMO that's the best time for places like Can Picafort :-) The area is permanently inhabited, so it never completely closes.

Hi we stayed here in June and hoping to go back middle October. Hotel is fantastic right on the beach, staff are very friendly and wonderful food too. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel. And also a ting ting ( land train) this is €3 adults €1.50 for children takes u into centre of can picafort. U can also walk along the promande to the centre takes about 20 mins. As for the weather I'm hoping about 22 going by average. In June it was very hot 29 +.
