Best Times to Visit Mallorca

The best time to visit Mallorca is from March to May, when average temperatures are in the 60s and 70s and the crowds of summer tourists haven't yet descended on the island. Summer has a long stretch in Mallorca – from June to September – and it's characterized by sweltering temperatures, hordes of tourists and high room rates. Fall is another nice shoulder season with mild temperatures and cooling rains, but January and February are the best times to score decent deals on room rates.

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center

June-September

The months between June and September are peak tourist season, with scores of travelers flocking to the island's resorts, beaches and clubs. In fact, it's a good idea to book your hotel a few months in advance to ensure you get a room. July and August tend to have the highest room rates of the year and the highest temperatures, which have been known to crest 100 degrees.

Key Events:

October-December

Late fall and early winter are characterized by cooler weather that drifts from average highs in the 70s in October to the lower 60s in December. Rainy days are common in October and November, and the mountainous areas will experience frequent cloud cover this time of year. Still, summertime's crowds have dispersed taking with them high hotel rates which makes it a good time to explore the island with a little more elbow room and a little more cash in your pocket.

Key Events:

  • Dijous Bo (November)
  • Noche Buena (December)
January-February

With high temperatures in the 50s and lows in the upper 30s, winter is not prime beach time in Mallorca. Still, low season in Mallorca is a good time to score reduced rates at all-inclusive resorts around the island.

Key Events:

  • Revetlla i Beneides de Sant Antoni Abat (January)
  • Festa de Sant Sebastia (January)
  • Sa Rua (Carnival parades) (February)
March-May

With mild average temperatures edging from the 60s on up, the months between March and May are a great time to visit Mallorca with its bustling outdoor cafes and blossoming flowers and herbs. Plus, you'll get to enjoy it all without the high temperatures and tourist throngs of summertime. Although the best deals on accommodations are had during low season, the hotel rates aren't yet at their summertime peaks either.

Key Events:

  • Day of the Balearic Islands (March 1)
  • Semana Santa (Holy Week) (March/April)
  • Princesa Sofia Trophy (March-April)
  • Festa de Nostra Senyora de la Victoria (May)
  • Pollenca Wine Fair (May)
