Best time of year to visit Mallorca

The best time to visit Mallorca is the shoulder season in April–May and September–October—days are warm and crowds are few. Most hotels and restaurants are open, and it’s a prime time to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and mountain biking. Hot summers bring a notable surge of tourism to Mallorca, so book early. June–August time is all about beach vacation, parties, and festivities like Nit de Foc. Autumn is still warm for swimming but prices drop. Mild winters bring New Year parties, great deals, and almond blossoms, but tourist services are limited. What a great time to enjoy Mallorca as it is!
