Mallorca is an excellent choice at any time of year, although the most popular time is undoubtedly the summer months from May to late September. Land temperatures in January tend to be around 59F or 15C which is mild and pleasant, though seasonal storms mean that you may want to pack a waterproof coat. The typical Mediterranean climate is defined by dry, hot summers and temperatures of up to 86F or 30C in August so be sure to pack light, cotton clothing and plenty of sunscreen.
