Weather Overview for Magaluf
June and September see average daily temperatures of 21°C to 22°C, while July and August are the hottest months with average daily temperatures of about 24°C to 25°C. The average daily temperature statistics are misleading, however, as this takes into account the evening temperatures as well, and seeing as the evenings are cooled but the coastal sea breezes this brings the mercury down a quite a few degrees. July and August usually get into the 30s. You can escape the heat by taking part in one of the many water activities that the town has to offer -jet skiing, wind surfing, tubing, snorkelling.
Magaluf is a very popular resort town located on the Spain’s largest island- Majorca. Magaluf’s tourism boom is largely due to the abundance of cheap package holidays to the resort, so you can expect herds of British teenagers, especially in the summer months.
Lying in the Mediterranean Sea within the Balearic Islands,
Magaluf is an ideal place to escape to if the cloudy British summer is trying
your patience. Made up of 3 main beaches -
Palma Nova, another resort town, lies nearby and is slightly more popular with travelling families - Magaluf appeals to a younger crowd. The streets are lined with bars and the evenings see young Brits enjoying their pre-club dinner and wine on the promenades. Most of the nightlife in Magaluf revolves around the strip called ‘Punta Ballena’ so head here if dancing is on your agenda. (And head to BCM nightclub if it’s a foam party you want as this two story club boasts "the world's largest foam machine".) Summer is the best time to visit for heat and sun, but keep in mind that you will be enjoying the season with 1000’s of other tourists. Despite the drawbacks of higher prices and packed beaches, the over-crowded summer months have a more electric vibe.
Winters in Magaluf see the mercury falling to an average of 9°C to 10°C, and this is when the island receives most of its rainfall. Rainfall picks up in autumn: September sees about 63mm of rain making it the wettest month of the year. Rainfall stays steady until about April when it begins to fall again. It is then almost completely dry throughout the summer.
Daily lows throughout
winter fall to a still bearable 4°C to 5°C while daily highs reach 14°C to 15°C.
The weather in Magaluf during winter is still warmer and more enjoyable than
the weather in
While Magaluf has a reputation for its fantastic, Mediterranean climate, it is subject to severe weather conditions which you should be aware of before you go on holiday in the area.
Due to the island’s close proximity to North Africa, dust storms that are caused by hot winds blowing across the Sahara, tend to occur in the Balearic Islands in the late winter/early spring time (usually between February and March).
These can often reduce visibility to 200 metres or less and irritate asthma and other breathing problems, so make sure you bring your medication with you if you suffer from such problems.
The droughts in Spain have gotten worse in recent years and last for much longer than they once used to. These can exacerbate bush fires, by causing the vegetation to be much drier, and often lead to periods of heavy rainfall, thunderstorms or hail storms. These in turn can lead to flash flooding. Magaluf can see around 10 hail storms a year and between 10-20 thunderstorms. Such weather is usually an issue in the autumn, so it is best to visit Magaluf in the summer if you want to avoid any severe weather.
Tornadoes and water spouts can hit the Balearic Islands more frequently than any other region in Spain and can occur from any time between July and December. They are most commonly a problem in September and October though, so it is best to travel outside of these months to avoid seeing any such extreme weather.
