The weather in Mallorca is one of the main factors why people choose this island for their holidays and life. And let’s find out more about it.

Mallorca’s climate

The island of Majorca enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate with around 300 days of sunshine a year, making it ideal for holidays almost all year round. In addition to the hot summer months, a fairly mild winter follows. Snow can only be encountered at the top of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains.

The average annual temperature ranges from 16 to 18°C, with an average maximum on summer days of 29/31°C and an average minimum on winter nights of 5/9°C. It should be noted that there are temperature rises in summer up to 35 ° C and in winter below -2 ° C, and sometimes temperatures can reach 41 ° C in summer and up to -6 ° C in winter.

Winter in the Balearic Islands is much warmer than in the rest of Spain. Therefore, the low season in Mallorca is especially appreciated by outdoor enthusiasts and travellers, as hotel and flight prices become very affordable, beaches and the most beautiful places of the island are practically empty.

In the second half of January almonds begin to blossom, in March – peach trees are abundantly covered with flowers, and in spring – the time of citrus blossom. At this time, the island is fragrant, with pleasant floral odours exuding their fragrance in different parts of Mallorca. 

When is the best time to go to Mallorca

The summer months are characterised by fairly long days, with almost 10 hours of sunshine on Mallorca. But the right water temperature is also important for swimming. The bathing season starts in May and lasts for 6 months until the end of October. Although there are guys who swim in December and April. The weather in Mallorca in these months is also sunny, although the water is sobering, to say the least. In early May, the water in the Mediterranean Sea off Mallorca warms up to +18 degrees, which is enough to open the swimming season without fear of freezing. The sea temperature reaches its maximum in August and remains at this temperature (+25 degrees Celsius) until the end of September. Summer rain in Mallorca is a very rare phenomenon, and if there is rain, it is short-lived and not abundant. It is believed that the best time for a beach holiday in Mallorca is between June and September. This is the height of the high season and all Mallorca beaches are very crowded, and the price of flights and hotels are going upwards.
