This encompasses details on sunshine hours, rainfall, sea temperatures, and more, enabling you to plan your activities, whether it's beach time, exploring the town, or enjoying local events, in the best possible conditions.

1. Spring

The weather in Palma Nova during spring is warm and progressively increases as summer approaches, making it an excellent time if you're considering cycling holidays in Majorca. The start of the season brings average highs of 17 degrees, but temperatures can fall to a chilly 5 degrees overnight, necessitating warmer layers for the evenings.

This mild and pleasant climate provides the perfect conditions for cycling enthusiasts to explore the island's diverse landscapes, from coastal paths to mountainous terrains, making spring an ideal season for a cycling holiday in Majorca.

By May, the town hits highs of 23 degrees, but with a much more temperate daily low of around 12. Sunshine hours vary from 7 in early spring to 9 on the brink of summer, while there is a moderate chance of rain with 9-12 days a month, but don’t worry – this usually comes in the form of short showers.

As the sea hasn’t had a chance to warm up yet, it remains a little too cold to swim unless you’re feeling hardy.

Average temps: Lows of 5 (March), highs of 23 (May)

Best for: Non-swimmers – the sea is still a bit chilly

2. Summer

Summer in Palma Nova is reliably warm and sunny, making it a prime time to explore waterparks in Majorca. Average highs rise from 27°C in June to 30°C in August, with sizzling temperatures often exceeding 30 degrees.

This season is ideal for dining al fresco and enjoying the nightlife, as temperatures rarely drop below the mid-teens, even at night. If you're looking to escape the rain, summer in Palma Nova is perfect, offering 12-13 hours of sunshine a day and minimal rainfall, especially in July.

The sea also warms up with the summer heat, starting at a comfortable 22 degrees in June and reaching a bath-like 26 degrees by August, perfect for water-based activities.
