What’s the weather like in Majorca in October?
The largest of the Balearic Islands, Majorca enjoys warm weather in October even though it’s autumn. You’ll find this an ideal time to visit if you like high temperatures and thinner crowds. There’s differences in climate across the island because of the mountains, which attract rain and clouds leaving the coast sunny and dry.
North westerly winds mean the southeast is usually a bit warmer and drier than other parts of Majorca. If you’re planning on spending long days at the beach you’ll be glad of the local winds, which draws cooler air from the sea as heat rises on the island.
