Weather Overview for Santa Ponsa

Santa Ponsa is a popular holiday resort on the southwest coast of Majorca, in Spain’s Balearic Islands. It is less than 10 kilometres west of Magaluf and not far from the island’s capital Palma.

Santa Ponsa enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with long hot summers and mild winters. The warm surrounding seas help moderate this climate, which is especially noticeable in the mild winters. Santa Ponsa receives only 400mm of rain per year. The climate has helped make the island very popular with European tourists.

The sea surrounding Santa Ponsa is warm year round; the principal reason for the mild winters. The sea temperature varies between 14°C in winter and 26°C in summer, and it is generally comfortable for swimming from late May to late mid-November.

SUMMER

Summer is when people flock to Santa Ponsa. The weather is typically hot and dry with plenty of sunshine. The main summer months of JuneJuly and August receive just 10% of the annual rainfall. July is by far the driest month of the year with a monthly rainfall total of 9mm and merely 2 days of precipitation.

July and August are the hottest months of the year and experience daily highs above 30°C. The great summer weather starts in late May and lasts through September. Summer temperatures can sometimes get very high—up into the mid-30s and even beyond. Thankfully, however, the resort’s coastal location allows for much appreciated relief from cooling sea breezes on the hottest days. The Embat is a well-known local wind that brings cooler sea air. It is caused when hot air rises up from Majorca’s mountains and draws in the cooler sea air in its place. It is very welcome on the hottest days of summer.

With 12 or 13 hours of sunshine per day in mid-summer in Santa Ponsa, sunshine is abundant and the great weather makes the brilliant beaches even more enjoyable.  

WINTER

The winters are mild in Santa Ponsa and see average temperatures of around 9°C and 10°CLows may drop to a chilly 4°C at night, but daytime highs are frequently in the mid-teens. With an average daily temperature of 9°C, January and February are the coldest months of the year. You’ll enjoy at least 6 hours of sunshine per day on average though. The Mediterranean Sea temperature ranges from 14°C to 16°C in winter and is only suitable for swimming for the hardiest of visitors.

As for rainfall, showers do occur, but at around 40mm a month on average, the actual rainfall level is not particularly high. You may get some wet and windy weather in winter, but that’s normally short-lived.

In general, winter sees a lot of good weather with plenty of sunshine and comfortable daytime temperatures—excellent weather for outdoor activities. You’ll get rain, but not a lot, and cold temperatures are rare. Winter is low season and the absence of the huge summer crowds will allow for a completely different experience.

SPRING/AUTUMN

These two seasons enjoy some great weather and if you factor in the fewer visitors and cheaper prices, they can arguably be the best time to visit. Of the two seasons, autumn is slightly warmer, while spring is drier. In fact, autumn is the wettest season of the year (although it’s never really that wet).

Early autumn still has high temperatures; summer heat effectively remains until late October. Average daily highs are in the upper 20s in September and in the low 20s in October. November does start to get a little chillier and can see single figure temperatures at night, although daily highs are still up towards 20°C.

Autumn is by far the wettest time of year and can receive more than 60mm a month on average. This is still relatively low, especially compared with British autumn weather, and that’s reflected by the fact that the days still average 7 or 8 hours of sunshine.

In spring, March is still cool at night and in the early morning, but the daytime temperature quickly increases. By April, temperatures can be up to 20°C in the day, and May can see highs in the mid-20s. Spring is dry with plenty of sunshine – averaging respectively 10 and 11 hours per day in April and May.
