The climate on the sunny island Mallorca varies, depending on the season.
The summers are hot and dry, the winters mild and rainy. There is sunshine
80% of the year.
January and February on Mallorca: The coldest months of the year.
Anyhow, the average temperature during the day is around 15 Celsius. The
hotels and the flights are after the Christmas season (after January 6th)
cheaper than anytime else in the year. You will only find open hotels,
restaurants, pubs and cafes in Palma and the surrounding area. In February
there are a few more tourists on Mallorca than in January. They come for the
beginning of the almond blossom. Most tourists are on the Platja de Palma
(Spanish Playa de Palma). It rains often, and at night temperatures are
normally 5-10 degrees. Snow at sea-level is very rare, but there is snow on
the higher mountains each winter. You should have a heating in your room or
holiday flat. The sea is much too cold for swimming.
March and April on Mallorca: The amount of holidaymakers grows every
week. In the two weeks before and after Easter a lot of tourists arrive in
Mallorca. The temperatures climb to over 20 Celsius during the day in April.
It is a great time for hikers and cyclists. There is less rain than in
winter but there are still rainy days almost every week.
May and June on Mallorca: The weather is great! There are some hot
days and also some mild days with little rain. The tourist season starts and
the hotels get more expensive. For many hikers it gets too hot in June, and
the amount of beach-loving tourists increases. The water is still cool, but
good for swimming.
July and August on Mallorca: The absolute high season and subtropical
climate: Almost no rain and scorchingly hot. Most days are around or over 30
degrees. Finding accommodation in Mallorca is difficult – you should book
ahead. Hotels and rent cars are expensive. Most tourists spend the days at
the beach and the nights in the bars, pubs and clubs.
September and October on Mallorca: The water is still warm, but the
temperature is getting lower. The ideal time for a beach holiday for those
you do not need more than 30 degrees. The temperature is typically 23 to 27
degrees in the afternoon. There are some short but strong rainfalls. There
are fewer families, since the school holidays have ended, but many elderly
and single tourists come to Mallorca. The landscape is very dry.
November and December on Mallorca: Many hotels close at the beginning
of November. In November in most years the sea is still warm enough to swim.
Most days are less than 20 degrees, but in the first half of November there
are some really warm days. The short days are a big disadvantage. It gets
dark before 6pm. At Christmas the temperature is around 15 degrees on
