Mallorca Climate & Seasonal Weather
Majorca | Spain
The weather in Mallorca, Majorca, epitomises the Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild, windy winters.
Sun-seekers hit the beaches from May through to October and the sea is perfect for swimming from June to October. July and August can be scorching and overcrowded, but the Mallorcan coastline can often escape the worst of the summer heat by virtue of the cooling sea breezes.
Mallorca enjoys a milder winter climate relative to those further north, and is thus seen as a perfect destination for those seeking a winter-break. More and more hotels are staying opening during the winter period as tourism increases. From December through to March it can be chilly and wet at times but the Tramuntana mountain range, running along the north-west coast, protects the island from the worst of the winter weather. The higher altitudes always experience cooler temperatures and the autumn, winter and spring are ideal times for hiking and cycling in Mallorca. The peaks of the mountains can sometimes be snow-clad even when the sun floods the lower valleys.
