The Weather on the Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands have some of Europe's finest all year round weather for which to enjoy the outdoors. The peak summer months (July and August) are the only time where it’s too hot to enjoy outdoor activities.

It's the spring and autumn on the islands that offer the best weather for us and, given that the Balearics enjoy 300 sunny days every year, we don't often get wet. The rain never stays for long anyway and, before you know it, the skies clear and the sun's out again.  Even on winter mornings, once the sun comes out, the days are glorious and you may be walking in a T-shirt by midday. As a rule of thumb, Ibiza is marginally the warmest of the 3 islands followed by Mallorca and then Menorca. Having said that, it’s marginal and all 3 islands enjoy an ideal Mediterranean climate.

Below is a chart outlining the type of temperatures that you could expect when visiting the islands at various times of year:
