What should I pack for Majorca?
With its golden sandy beaches and clean, azure waters, Majorca is a popular tourist destination, especially in the summer when temperatures average 30°C. It's mild throughout the year though, and visiting off peak can be a great time to appreciate the historical and cultural delights of the island.
With Holiday Extras, you can book your airport transfers to get to you to your resort accommodation without any hassle. Read on to find out what you should pack for your trip.
May is a great time to visit Majorca. Daytime temperatures are starting to get well into the twenties, so it's a great time to relax on the beach without the crowds that arrive in peak summer time. Evenings will tend to be cool, so you'll need some long trousers, long sleeved tops or jumpers, and maybe a light jacket. Shorts, t-shirts and strappy tops are normally enough for daytime. You might also get the odd shower, so it's a good idea to bring an umbrella.
With school out and scorching hot temperatures reaching the mid to late thirties, July and August are the busiest time of year for tourists to Majorca. You'll obviously need plenty of pairs of swimwear, and don't forget accessories such as sunglasses and sunhat. Stock up on sunscreen as well before you travel, as it can be pricey in resorts. Average night temperatures at this time of year are warm too – around 22 or 23°C, so save space in your suitcase by not packing warm clothing; one long sleeved top will suffice.
October is another good time to come to Majorca, as temperatures are still high, averaging around 24°C during the day, but popular tourist spots are a little quieter. This can be a great time to explore in pleasant conditions some of the historical sights the island has to offer, such as the famous cathedral in Palma. Pack some sturdy, comfortable walking shoes and a waterproof jacket, as October is the wettest month on the island, even if the rain does tend to come in bursts.
Even in winter months, Majorca is still mild during the day, with temperatures averaging around 15 to 17°C. You'll need some thicker jumpers and jackets, especially for the evenings. Also, bear in mind that hotels are geared towards the summer season and don't generally provide heating or much insulation, so you'll need some warm night clothes for those chilly nights.
