What's the best time of year to visit Majorca?

To make the most of your holiday, you need to decide what's the best time of year to visit Majorca. The answer depends on what you'd like to do. We've covered most bases below with some handy tips and advice. Before you get booking, remember our airport transfers. We'll pick you up from your flight and deliver you straight to the door of your accommodation if you're staying in one of the island's resorts or many hotels.

For sunbathing

Visit Majorca in the summer months to make the most of soft-sand beaches and warm, gentle waters. Temperatures from June-August reach the late 20s and early 30s at the height of summer, so plan your trip around wandering from beach to beach and wading in the calm sea.

For being active

The opportunity to stay active in Majorca is all around. You can rent bikes or roller skates to take on the Portixol promenade or seek out a Segway tour to zip around some of the island's cities. Spring is best for these activities. It can vary, temperature-wise, from mid teens to mid-late 20s, so going for a coastal jog won't leave you dehydrated.

For watersports

In September and October Majorca's sea temperature hovers around the early-mid 20s zone, which makes it perfect to have a go at watersports. Plenty of places throughout the island offer lessons in scuba diving, snorkelling, stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking – and the weather means you won't be feeling too hot to get involved.

For culture

Although there's a significant drop in temperature between summer and winter in Majorca, the weather is still mild from December to February. From about 10°C-15°C means take a jacket and you'll be okay, although we recommend spending some time indoors. Head to Palma to check out the museums, art galleries and historical sites which will shelter you from any occasional showers.

For a gastro trip

The great thing about Majorca is that no matter the time of year, the food is always exquisite. In summer, embrace island living with fresh seafood and traditional paella, while in winter you should check out some of the Michelin-starred restaurants dotted about. They offer all sorts from European classics to global fusions.

Once you've decided what time of year is best for you, get booking one of our Majorca airport transfers. You can choose from a shared bus, a private minibus if you're travelling in a group or a private car to reach destinations across the island.
