Cala dOr Weather May Averages, Spain
What's the Weather like in Cala d'Or in May
The Mediterranean climate of Cala d'Or in southeast Majorca, the largest island in Spain's Balearic Islands, brings warm and sunny weather to the area all year round. With a prime location overlooking the sea, this resort has it all: water sports, beaches, nightlife, shopping, and sightseeing.
With temperatures surpassing the 20°C mark (highs of 23°C are common in the afternoon) and dropping to an average low of 12°C overnight, May is what many travellers have been waiting for. Temperatures increase noticeably in the course of the month. The high temperature rises from 21°C in the beginning of the month to 23°C toward the end, while the low temperature climbs from 8°C to 12°C. The overall average temperature is now 17°C, making May the sixth warmest month of the year, after the five upcoming months.
Average Sea Temperature
May is not only a great time to hit the beach; it also marks the beginning of the peak tourist season. That being said; although the air temperature already allows for beach visits, the temperature of the sea isn't at its most comfortable level just yet. It now averages 17°C.
The April showers linger a little and can last until May, so rainfall isn't a whole lot less than the previous months with about 26mm on average and 9 days with precipitation. The good news is that the end of May usually sees the last of the heavy rain for the summer. The probability of experiencing a rain shower decreases in the course of the month, from 31% to 22%. There are four types of rainfall in May, the most common of which is moderate rain. This type is recorded on 42% of the days with rainfall. The other types are thunderstorms, light rain and drizzle, respectively occurring on 21%, 19% and 15% of the rainy days.
The main reason for this decrease in the probability of experiencing rainfall is that cloud cover decreases as well throughout the month. It decreases from 41% in the beginning to 34% at the end of the month.
Average Sunshine Hours
Fewer clouds, of course, also result in more sunshine. On average, a day in May gets 9 beautiful hours of sunshine, two more than in April and three more than in March. Only the following three summer months of June, July and August have more sunshine hours than May.

Things to do in Cala d'Or in April
One of the major attractions in this corner of Majorca is the spectacular Santueri Castle in Felanitx. Perched on a rocky cliff almost 500 metres above the Mediterranean Sea, this extremely well-preserved 14th-century fortress offers extraordinary views of the Majorcan southeast coast, as far as the Cabrera Islands. Although the present walls date back to the 1300s, there has been a fortress on this very site since Roman times. A visit to Santueri Castle is mandatory during a holiday in the area!
