When to visit Mallorca


At the height of the season, every summer, people are attracted to the phenomenal beaches and charming culture of this Balearic island. As one of the best summer holiday destinations with average temperatures ranging from 26°C in June to 30°C in August, make the most of the balmy weather in Mallorca in summer, although you might need to wake up early to secure a coveted spot on one of the secluded beaches.
