The best time to visit Mallorca is during the shoulder seasons of spring (April to June) and autumn (September to October). The weather is pleasantly warm during these months, with fewer crowds and lower accommodation prices than the peak summer season.
Spring in Mallorca is a delight, with blooming flowers and lush landscapes, making it ideal for outdoor activities like hiking and exploring the island’s picturesque villages. The temperatures are comfortable for enjoying the beaches, and the sea is starting to warm up for swimming.
Autumn offers a similar experience, with milder temperatures and a more relaxed atmosphere.
Mallorca is also a popular destination during the summer, from June to August, when visitors flock to the island to bask in the sun and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere.
