What’s the weather like in Majorca in January?
Located in the Mediterranean Sea and one of Spain’s Balearic islands, Majorca has a mild year-round climate. January is often the coldest month on the island, so if you visit in the new year you’ll need to pack plenty of layers, especially for the cooler evenings. The risk of rain is higher in the winter months so you’ll need a raincoat too, but wet weather is often confined to just a few showers.
In January, Majorca experiences average temperatures of 10°C with highs of 15°C. In the evening it can get much colder, with temperatures plunging to 5°C, so jumpers are essential. At this time of year, the sea can be as cold as 7°C, so you’ll need to be brave or wear a wetsuit if you want to take a dip. Majorca usually has around 11 rainy days and five overcast days each month, with two hours of sunshine a day. Sunset is at 5.35pm at the beginning of the month.
