Malllorca is known among the locals and the many foreign residents as the ‘isla de la luz’ or the ‘island of the light’ because of its abundance of sunlight and clear, blue skies throughout the year.

On average, the sun shines 2.775 hours per year.

That  is 7.5 hours on average every day of the year. That is just about double the amount of sunshine one gets for example in Brussels.


Mallorca has great weather throughout the year, with an average of 5-6 hours of sunshine a day in winter and 10-11 hours of sunshine in Summer.

The summer on Mallorca lasts  from May through Ocotober with the maximum temperature during the day averaging above 20° in each of these months.

But even from November through April, the average maximum temperature doesn’t drop below 15° and  most days have clear and sunny skies with only occasional rain.


October and November are the ‘wettest’ months. But even then, it rains on average only on 6/7 days a month. It can be windy in these months as well.
