Majorca weather: When is the best time to go to Majorca?

Majorca is currently subject to the UK’s travel restrictions, meaning it is off the cards for an imminent summer holiday. Plans have been thrown into chaos for those already abroad and those at home who had a holiday booked in the Mediterranean country as it was removed from the UK’s ‘air bridge’ list. But the popular and beautiful island is hopeful to receive UK travellers once restrictions have been lifted.

The FCO currently has a travel advisory out against the island, meaning it is not possible to obtain travel insurance, and any current travel insurance will be invalid.

The current FCO advice is as follows: “From 27 July, the FCO advise against all non-essential travel to Spain, including the Balearic and Canary Islands, based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks in the country.

“This advice is based on evidence of increases in cases of COVID-19 in several regions, but particularly in Aragon, Navarra and Catalonia (which include the cities of Zaragoza, Pamplona and Barcelona).

“The FCO is not advising those already travelling in Spain to leave at this time.

The President of Spain’s Balearic Islands has also implored the UK Government to rethink its blanket ban on arrivals from Spain, highlighting the low case rates in the popular holiday region that includes Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza.

Francina Armengol Socias said: “We have gone to extraordinary lengths to minimise the effects of the virus on our islands.

“We enforced a strict lockdown for more than two months in order to curb the pandemic and we only opened up again under strict conditions.

“We, therefore, wish to make clear to the UK Government that we share its commitment to containing the virus, and that our region of Spain, far from posing a threat, remains a safe haven and ally.”

When is the best time to travel to Majorca?

With its rugged coastline, sandy beaches and clear sapphire waters, Majorca is one of the jewels of the Mediterranean.

In normal times, the best time to travel to Majorca is during the summer months of June to September.

Temperatures stay consistently high in this period, with highs of over 30C a regular occurrence.

If you prefer cooler weather on holiday, the best time to visit Majorca is in autumn or spring.

October is very pleasant, with highs of 24C and lows of 14C at night.

The island is peaceful at this time of year as its off-peak, which is great if you like a relaxing and quiet environment on holiday.

Spain has one of the worst coronavirus records in Europe alongside the likes of the UK and Italy.

Some 28,000 people have died so far, and the country was subject to one of the most draconian lockdowns in Europe.
