Mallorca Climate and Weather
Mallorca, or Majorca, enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild winters. The island has an ideal climate for holidaymakers with little rain and average temperatures usually kept comfortably below 86ºF (30ºC) even in mid-summer. Temperatures remain warm in the spring and autumn and even in winter rarely drop much below 50ºF (10ºC). Water temperatures range from 64ºF (18ºC) in May to 79ºF (26ºC) in August making Mallorca ideal for water sports and ensuring that swimming is possible throughout spring and autumn as well as summer. Mallorca doesn't get much rain, but autumn is the wettest season, with 40 percent of rain falling between September and November. There is also some rain in spring, between March and May, and in winter, between December and February. Outside of autumn rainfall is usually sporadic and light and shouldn't be too disruptive to holiday plans.
Summer, between June and August, is the peak tourist season in Mallorca and the best time to visit. The island is also pleasant to visit during the mild spring and autumn seasons, especially for those who prefer to avoid the crowds, although some rain is possible. During winter some of the restaurants and amenities at the resorts may close.
