Tricks to “resist” climate in Pollença
Here we bring you 5 easy tricks to resist the warm, sunny and dry climate in Pollensa:
1. Hydration, hydration, hydration:
Just as the mantra in real estate is “location, location, location” during the summer in Mallorca, it’s all about hydration. Make sure to drink plenty of water, especially important for children and the elderly.
2. Use sun cream
One of the worst feelings in the world is having sunburn all over your body. You can ask a dermatologist or pharmacist to recommend the protection factor that is best for your own skin type, should you have any doubts.
3. Avoid the worst hours of sun
During the middle of the day (from around 11am to 3pm) are the hours with the greatest heat intensity and solar radiation: avoid being out in the sun so you don’t get burned or get a bout of heat stroke. If you can’t avoid it, remember point number 1.
4. “S’embat” a natural regulator of climate in Pollença
The sea breeze that blows in coastal areas is known in Mallorca as s’embat – it is the ideal temperature regulator: make the most of it and let it refresh you!
5. Local wisdom
Hand-held fans for when there’s no wind blowing, pitchers and flasks to keep the drinks cool, staying “a l’ombra” (in the shade), wearing baggy cotton clothing in the aldib style, white-washed houses… The people of Mallorca have been dealing with the drought and hot Mediterranean climate for a long time and have adapted to it marvellously.
