If you’re a sun-worshipper, you’ll love the months of July and August in Mallorca. With an average of 35 degrees, they are the island’s hottest. Meteorological summer begins mid-May and ends mid-October. Temperatures reach a minimum of 25°C in this period.
You can almost hear the island sigh a collective sigh of relief during La Gota Fria or “the cold drop” at the end of August/start of September. The hazy days of summer are over, which means you can enjoy warm weather and beautiful, clear views. Then, temperatures drop by another 5°C and are around 30°C degrees.
The second half of October in Mallorca is simply perfect. There are fewer tourists and it’s still warm enough to lie on the beach and go for a swim. Temperatures have been over 25°C from mid-October to mid-November in recent years.
But you never know for certain what the weather will do. It may be cooler or even rain during your stay. However, less-than-perfect weather usually concerns rain showers and not the kind of downpours that last for days. In a nutshell, you can still sunbathe and swim in the sea until mid-November.
It’s no surprise then that more and more people choose to visit Mallorca in autumn. With the season’s fewer tourists, dreamy temperatures, and lower prices, what’s not to love?
Water babies will be glad to know that temperatures are still around 20°C in October and November, which is only 5°C less compared to August and September. With its mild temperatures, October is an ideal time to visit, especially for keen hikers or cyclists. It’s also a great period to see the island’s attractions without the madding crowds, visit hard-to-book restaurants, not to mention sample local produce at the villages’ autumnal markets.
