Weather Overview for Alcudia

Alcudia, the main tourist centre on Majorca (Mallorca), one of Spain’s Balearic Isles, has a typical Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters. Year round tourism benefits from low rainfall and lots of sunshine.

 

The Alcudian summer is long and hot, peaking around 30°C in August, with the potential for a full eight months of bikini-suitable days. Temperatures reach 19°C as early as April and remain as high as 18°C well into November, but these drop relatively sharply in the evenings and the summer proper can be said to last from May till October. From May till September rainfall is minimal and Alcudia is at its driest. July and August see the highest influx of tourists with the hottest of Alcudia’s weather.

 

Spring and autumn days see temperatures of around 17°C, relatively much cooler than the blistering summer heat but still enjoyable. Springtime is seen by some as the perfect time to visit due to its increasing temperatures and smaller crowds. However, night time temperatures require some extra layers; March temperatures get down to 5°C, slipping up to 8°C by April. While year round Alcudia gets little rain, October is its wettest month and temperatures gradually decrease, averaging 8°C lows on November nights. The rain in October and November brings the Alcudian countryside to life with a burst of new growth after the arid summer.

 

Winter days rarely drop below 10°C. Its coldest months, January and February, see an average high of 14°C and a night time low of 4°C. Sunshine is less to be relied upon though it still averages around five hours a day.

 

Alcudia is described as having an ideal year-round climate due to its flawless, lengthy summers and extremely mild winters, making it a year-round destination for tourists. The weather enables water sports, amongst other tourist activities such as exploring the Roman monuments and horse riding, to continue throughout the seasons. This is due to its situation in Mediterranean Sea and the protection from wind and rain by the Serra da Tramuntana mountain range, which stretches along the north-west side of Majorca. The Serra da Tramuntana actually better protects the south-east region of Majorca, and Alcudia, being in the north-east, receives slightly more rain and lower temperatures.

 

Alcudian tradition makes use of its reliable weather with festivals falling throughout the year. On January 16th and 17th is the celebration of Sant Antoni Abat, the patron saint of animals, traditionally pictured holding a pig. Holy Week, falling either in February, March or April, is Alcudia’s Easter celebration during which huge religious processions take place. From June 25th to the 29th Feste de Patronal de Sant Pere, the patron saint of sailors, is held. Romeria a la Verge de la Victoria, or Mare de Déu de la Victòria, takes place on the 1st and 2nd July. Starting on July 25th is Alcudia’s most important festival celebrating its patron Saint James with concerts, theatre and dance amongst many other activities. Bizarrely, August 24th is dedicated to a Chinese Lantern festival involving un-Chinese melon lanterns and Majorcan songs. The Fira, a trade fair, is held during the first week in October. December holds the usual Christmas and New Year ’s Eve celebrations.
