Weather Overview for Cala Bona
Cala Bona is a small fishing village that caters to the tourist market. Cala Bona translates to “The Good Bay”. It is situated on the east coast of Majorca, or Mallorca, and is a favourite with families looking to relax. The climate is Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. An ideal holiday destination, the best time to visit is in the months of June, July and August.
It can sometimes be battered by strong winds so it is best to check the weather before stepping out. The island also has very strong rip currents around it so use the flag system that most places in Mallorca have in place, where green indicates that there is no danger, yellow indicates that you should be careful, and red means you should not enter the water under any circumstances.
The summer months of June, July, August and September in Cala Bona are hot, with temperatures that can rise to about 30°C, and the average temperature over this season is about 21°C to 25 °C with lows around 16°C. Ensure that your hotel has air-conditioning as you will need it. The sea is lovely and warm with temperatures between 21°C and 26°C, which is great for swimming and taking part in water sports like sailing and water skiing. There is a bit of rainfall in June and July, but it slowly increases in August and reaches a high of 50mm in September. You will have the added delight of having long days of brightness, with sunshine for about 12 hours in June, 13 hours in July and August and 10 hours in September.
Autumn is a lovely cool season with the temperature in October seeing highs of about 23°C and lows of 13°C. In the month of November, the temperatures drop to highs of 18°C and lows of 8°C, so if you visit during this time, you will need a sweater in the evenings. The average sea temperature is still good at about 19°C to 22°C. October generally sees the most rainfall with an average of about 63 mm. The daily amount of sunshine drops to about 7 to 8 hours a day, giving you less time to enjoy the sea.
The months of December, January and February only see high temperatures of about 14°C to 15°C. Night-time temperatures may drop to lows of 4°C to 5°C. The average sea temperature is about 15°C to 17°C, so it would be rather cold to swim in. Rainfall is not too high and is between 35 and 44 mm, and the sun shines for only about 6 to 8 hours per day. The winter is not the best time to visit Cala Bona as the town is quiet, and because of the cold, there is not much that you can do in regards to the sea.
March, April and May see temperatures rising after the winter, which is fairly cold. March sees temperatures of 17°C, but at night this could dip to as low as 5°C, so you would still need a sweater or a jacket for the evenings. April and May are slightly better with temperature highs of about 19°C to 23°C, and lows of 8°C to 12°C, and the daily amount of sunshine goes up to 9 to 12 hours. The sea, however, is still quite cool at 15°C to 18°C. You would also get about 30 to 39 mm of rain per month, so it would be a good idea to have an umbrella handy if you choose to visit during this time.
Cala Bona is a great holiday resort in Spain if you want to get away from the grind and humdrum of daily life. It is near Cala Millor, and has a number of small, sandy beaches between its rocky outcrops. Though it is hot during the summer, it escapes the arid, dry heat because of its location near the coast. Ideal holiday weather during the summer makes it a popular destination.
