Planning Your Visit
When to visit?
The best time to visit Mallorca is between June and August, when the weather averages about 86°F and the coastal breeze stops temperatures from getting intolerable. This is also when the island hosts its music and film festivals. For a nice wintry trip with mild weather October won't disappointed - it's better-suited to exploring Mallorca's local cultures and historic buildings.
