One of the main attractions, for which hundreds of thousands of tourists decide every year to travel to Majorca, is the island's privileged climate. Majorca's Mediterranean climate means that, almost all year round, temperatures are pleasant and mild.  But depending on the season, the island of Majorca always offers a different kind of holiday.

In this article, we will try to show you the different possibilities with their advantages and disadvantages that the island can offer depending on the season you choose to travel to Mallorca.

SUMMER IN MALLORCA

June, July and August are the warmest months, with an average temperature of around 30ºC. It is the ideal time for those who like to go out and enjoy the beach during their holidays in Majorca. It is also the busiest time when there is more nightlife and leisure. Of course, this also has a disadvantage, namely that it is the time of year when the island is more crowded.

If you are travelling to Majorca during these months, we recommend you to rent a villa. In contrast to a hotel, a holiday home allows you to enjoy your space away from overcrowding. Due to the manageable size of the island Mallorca you have also from secluded places short access routes.

MAY AND SEPTEMBER IN MAJORCA

These two months are usually a good option for those looking for a good climate (with an average of about 20-25 ºC) but without being excessively hot, you can also enjoy the beaches. Also the affluence of tourism is smaller during these months. It is not that the island is empty, but of course there is not the flood of people of the summer months.  Let's say it's the ideal: neither too cold nor too hot.

WINTER IN MAJORCA

December, January and February are usually the coldest months (January being the coldest), with an average maximum temperature of around 15ºC. Of course these are not the months chosen by tourists looking for sun and beach during their holidays in Majorca, but travelling in these months offers some very interesting possibilities that should not be underestimated. On the one hand it is the best time to discover the island with tranquillity and to enjoy a more authentic experience of Majorca in which you can feel the reality of the island and its inhabitants. Also, if the Tramuntana mountain range (a UNESCO heritage site) is already spectacular in itself, imagine if you are lucky enough to see it snowed in.

October:

Although the temperature in Majorca is generally very good in this first full autumn month, with an average temperature of 23 ºC, it is usually also the rainiest month.
