When is the best time to go to Mallorca?

The best time to visit Majorca, as in the other Balearic Islands, extends from March to December. Indeed, the island enjoys eight months of beautiful and magnificent days, giving visitors the freedom to choose the time that suits them to travel to Majorca and enjoy the sun.

For lazing on the beach, swimming, or snorkeling, the summer season, between June and September, is ideal: it's hot, but not too hot, and the Mediterranean Sea water displays ideal temperatures.

However, please note that July and August are the most popular months for vacationers. It is the peak tourist season, and most hotels are fully booked. Take the time to book your accommodation if you want to mingle with summer vacationers and comfortably enjoy the warmth and the sea, especially since prices are quite high.

If you want to go hiking in Majorca, the best season is between March and November. In summer, although the inland areas are rather quiet, the heat can be challenging if you are sensitive to it. It is better to go for a walk early in the morning to avoid the midday temperature peak.

In winter, from December to March, the weather in Majorca remains mild with plenty of sunshine and infrequent rainfall. All conditions are met for a stay focused on relaxation and rest, while escaping the gloom of northern Europe.

When is the best time to visit Majorca to avoid crowds and be sure to be able to do outdoor activities? Opt for the shoulder seasons: April-May and September-October. In spring, nature is adorned with colorful flowers, making the landscapes sensational. In autumn, the sea water, which has warmed up all summer, is still perfectly suitable for swimming and lounging on the beach.

Climate and Weather on the island of Majorca

The island is the largest in the Balearic archipelago, a separate autonomous community in Spain. Like its counterparts Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera, the climate in Majorca is predominantly Mediterranean with hot summers. This climate covers 75% of the territory, including the capital, Palma de Mallorca. The only exception is in the south, towards Cala d'Or, where a semi-arid steppe climate, dry and cold, can be found.

Overall, the island's weather allows for enjoying mild and pleasant temperatures all year round, with very comfortable warmth during the summer season. The coast enjoys an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, and outside of summer, it is always a bit cooler in the mountain villages than in coastal areas. Majorca is also quite windy, especially from October to April. Nevertheless, the mountains located in the north partially protect the plain area from winds blowing from France, such as the Tramontane.

Majorca Climate in Summer

In Majorca, summer is hot and dry. Moreover, this season is also very long, as temperatures can be summer-like from early June to late October, allowing visitors to fully enjoy the charms of the island.

In June, temperatures already reach around 27°C (81°F) both in the air and in the water. In July and August, the average temperature is 30°C (86°F) , which is quite bearable on the coasts, as the maritime air tempers the scorching temperatures of the land. In September, the weather is still perfect, with temperatures around 28°C (83°F) during the day and the sea at 27°C (81°F) .

To top it off, at this time of the year, rainfall is very low. Apart from a few thunderstorms that may occur, especially in September, the sun shines brightly and the sky is azure blue.

Majorca Climate in Autumn

  • In October, summer lingers on: temperatures average around 24°C (76°F) at the hottest hours, and the Mediterranean Sea displays inviting temperatures for swimming, usually higher than those of the air, around 26°C (79°F) .
  • In November, the weather changes quite rapidly and the atmosphere cools down: it's 20°C (68°F) during the day and 14°C (58°F) at night. Like in October, the sea remains warmer with an average of 23°C (74°F) . Rain may come in the form of short showers, but the sun quickly returns. It's still a good time to explore Majorca, swim in the middle of the day, and go on memorable hikes in the mountains, all without tourists in sight.
  • In December, expect about 3°C (38°F) less compared to November. Temperatures are still quite decent, especially with less rain. However, be cautious of the wind, which can quickly make it feel colder.

Majorca Climate in Winter

While winters are mild in Majorca, they are also humid: in January and February, it can rain up to 5 days per month. The coolness of the air is mostly accentuated by the wind, which can be strong during the season. Thus, in mountainous areas like the Sierra along the coast of the Spanish island, it can even be cold. Significant temperature differences between the coast and the south of Majorca are not uncommon.

Between late December and late March, daytime temperatures range between 16 and 17°C (63°F) , while at night, it drops to around 10°C (50°F) . Occasionally, it can get much colder, around 0°C (32°F) , and snow can fall on the mountain peaks. So, you can have a snowball fight before enjoying a drink on a seaside terrace!

Majorca Climate in Spring

Spring, from late March to late June, is a beautiful season to visit Majorca, although you may have to wait until May to swim, with water temperatures exceeding 20°C (68°F) . The period is characterized by rather dry weather, sunny skies, and mild temperatures:

  • In April, the average temperature is 19°C (67°F) , but it's not uncommon for the thermometer to exceed 20°C (68°F) .
  • In May, expect around 22°C (72°F) .
  • In June, summer sets in, with highs around 27°C (81°F) , both in the air and in the sea.
