Weather Overview for Palma Nova

Palma Nova enjoys a dry Mediterranean climate. Long hot summers and mild winters are complemented by low levels of rainfall. The resort sits on a on the golden south coast of Mallorca of Spain’s Balearic Isles, just next to the notorious party resort of Magaluf. While its neighbour is a centre for all-night clubbing, Palma Nova is slightly more relaxed and attracts a quieter crowd. Palma Nova experiences weather conditions almost identical to all resorts on the south side of the island, for instance Palma and Cala Vinas.

Summer in Palma Nova, from June till September, is beautifully hot with the average high temperature peaking at 30°C in August. The sun shines uninterrupted by cloud and the high temperatures linger into the night; perfect for typically late Mediterranean outdoor dining, but sometimes a little uncomfortable for sleeping. The island has a localised wind system called the Embat which means a cooling breeze helps to keep conditions pleasant during the day. Easing the temperature at all times is the low humidity.

Autumn, in October and November, is the wettest season though still very little rain falls. Short showers followed by clear skies are the norm. The cooler low 20s and thinner crowds might be considered preferable, though by mid November the water temperature can get a little brisk, seeing an average of 17°C.

Winter, from December to February, is very mild but visitors should not pack their bikinis and expect to return home with a suntan. The average high is around 13°C and the average low is around 5°C. While there are usually a few freak days that see the temperature shooting up into the high teens, there is also the possibility of it being much cooler. It rarely gets down to freezing but frosts have been known to happen. Cloud cover is indecisive and the sun comes out for around five hours per day. Rainfall lessens, not that it ever gets particularly high, but it is a little unpredictable.  

Spring, from March till May, gets gradually warmer and sunnier. Night times remain quite cold as does the sea. There are usually a few days each month that peak in the low 20s, but by mid May low 20s temperatures are guaranteed. Late spring is a great time to visit the area, similar to early autumn. Spring is drier than autumn but the sea in spring is cooler.

Mallorca has uniformly pleasant weather across its resorts though there is some regional variation. Its position in the balmy Mediterranean Sea ensures hot summers and mild winters. Mallorca’s mountainous terrain serves as a barrier to the southwest winds that blow over the island, creating a northeast/southwest divide in weather conditions. Resorts on the southwest coast are usually slightly wetter, cloudier and cooler than those on the northeast, such as Can Picafort and Alcudia, but the difference is minimal and being the greater recipient of refreshing breezes these areas might be considered preferable.
