With 308 sunny days each year Mallorca revels in its brilliant weather.

WEATHER IN JANUARY
Min. temp: 8º C | Max. temp: 15º C | Daily hours of sunshine: 6 | # of rainy days: 5  |  Good month for cycling

The sky is completely clear or partly cloudy for 80% of the time. Low season for the main tourism sector, so very few rental cars and buses around meaning the roads are at their quietest. A lot of restaurants and hotels are closed, but enough are still open. With around a million discerning locals the restaurants that are open are on their game as they need repeat customers!

WEATHER IN FEBRUARY
Min. temperature: 9º C | Max. temperature: 16º C | Daily hours of sunshine: 6 | # of rainy days: 5 |  Good month for cycling

Temperatures are slightly higher than January and the almond blossom starts to appear. Slightly cloudier overhead on average than January, but the same number of rainy days. Still low season with very, very quiet roads and lots of restaurants and hotels still closed. 

WEATHER IN MARCH
Min. temp: 11º C | Max. temp: 18º C | Daily hours of sunshine: 7 | # of rainy days: 4 |  Great month for cycling

Spring is arriving. Days becoming longer and temps rising. Not uncommon to be able to lie on the beach (water still cold at around 15º C though). Roads still quiet with cars but the spring cycling season brings a lot of cyclists. Lots of restaurants and hotels now open.

WEATHER IN APRIL
Min. temp: 12º C | Max. temp: 19º C | Daily hours of sunshine: 8 | # of rainy days: 5-6 |  Great month for cycling

Spring cycling season in full flow. Days longer and temperatures slowly rising. Not uncommon to have the occasional day over 22º C. All restaurants and hotels now open. Sea still cold but the beach is plenty warm enough to work on those comedy tans! 

WEATHER IN MAY
Min. temp: 15º C | Max. temp: 24º C | Daily hours of sunshine: 9 | # of rainy days: 4 |  Great month for cycling

The days are warmer and longer, and the roads are busier with non cycling tourists now, but still clear if you plan your rides to Cap Formentor and Sa Calobra to be away before 11:00. Sea is good for swimming.

WEATHER IN JUNE
Min. temp: 18º C | Max. temp: 26º C | Daily hours of sunshine: 10 | # of rainy days: 2 |  Good month for cycling

This is the real start of the high season, but before the school holidays. The days are now hot, and the evenings warm. The roads are busier with non cycling tourists now, but still clear if you plan your rides to Cap Formentor and Sa Calobra to be away before 11:00. Sea is great for swimming. 

WEATHER IN JULY
Min. temp: 22º C | Max. temp: 37º C | Daily hours of sunshine: 11 | # of rainy days: 1 | Good for cycling if you go in the early morning. Not recommended for long one way routes

The weather is now hot and at times quite humid. Best time to cycle is in the early mornings to beat the heat and the tourist traffic. Cycling in the evenings is ok, but the roads have absorbed heat in the day and release it steadily so mornings are cooler. 

WEATHER IN AUGUST
Min. temp: 23º C | Max. temp: 35º C | Daily hours of sunshine: 10 | # of rainy days: 1 | Good for cycling if you go in the early morning. Not recommended for long one way routes

Usually the hottest month of the year with higher humidity than July. Best time to cycle is in the early mornings to beat the heat and the tourist traffic. Cycling in the evenings is ok, but the roads have absorbed heat in the day and now release it.

WEATHER IN SEPTEMBER
Min. temp: 20º C | Max. temp: 27º C | Daily hours of sunshine: 8 | # of rainy days: 4 |  Good month for cycling

Weather starts to cool now, with corresponding occasional rain and thunderstorms. A good month for cycling, being aware that the major routes are full of rental cars and buses after 11:00. beat them and it is a great month to cycle.

WEATHER IN OCTOBER
Min. temp: 16º C | Max. temp: 23º C | Daily hours of sunshine: | # of rainy days: 6 |  Good/great month for cycling

The third rainiest month with an average of 7 wet days. Still a good month for cycling once those 7 are out the way. Cooler evenings but still warm enough in the day for the beach. 

WEATHER IN NOVEMBER
Min. temp: 12º C | Max. temp: 19º C | Daily hours of sunshine: 6 | # of rainy days: 8 |  Good month for cycling

Often compared to the UK in May. A good month for cycling even though it is historically the wettest month. Most of the month can be expected to be sunny or mostly sunny. Most of the restaurants and hotels outside of the main centres are closed. 

WEATHER IN DECEMBER
Min. temp: 10º C | Max. temp: 17º C | Daily hours of sunshine: 6 | # of rainy days: 7 |  Good month for cycling

The shortest days of the year but with beautiful clear blue skies it feels like a paradise compared to the rest of Europe. Most of the restaurants and hotels outside of the main centres are still closed, those catering for locals are open and doing a roaring trade. 

*The Tramuntana mountains can at times have its own micro climate. Also because of their altitude, the temperature is always a few degrees cooler than the rest of the island. Dress in layers.
