An overview of Majorca weather

Majorca, part of the Spanish Balearic group, is a beautiful island in the western Mediterranean with some very fine beaches and summer weather to match. Since the 1950s it has been a popular holiday destination for visitors from Northern Europe.

With its typically Mediterranean climate Majorca has hot dry summers and cooler winters when there is some rain, most of which falls between the end of September and the end of December.

In winter the surrounding sea generally helps to protect Majorca from very low temperatures such as experienced on the Spanish mainland. However very occasionally cold weather systems move in from the north bringing freezing temperatures and even snow.

There is also the possibility in clear conditions of persistent strong winds blowing from the north. These mistral-like winds may last for days on end and in the mountains can be amplified as they are funnelled down valleys. Except in such exceptional circumstances, winter temperatures range from 15°C during the day to around 6°C at night, with at least 4 to 5 hours of sunshine on most days.

From the middle of February temperatures start to rise and by June there is plenty of warmth and sunshine. During the height of summer coastal regions benefit from afternoon onshore sea breezes that help to moderate high daytime temperatures. However temperatures do generally rise above 30°C in July and August.

Expect a good 10 to 11 hours of daily sunshine during the main summer months between June and August. Sea temperatures are not as warm as they are in the eastern Mediterranean but you can expect 25°C at the height of summer.

What to pack for Majorca weather

In summer light clothes are all that is required, while winters definitely call for warmer clothing especially after sundown.
