What’s the weather like in the Balearic Islands in May?
Sitting off the east coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea, the Balearic Islands are one of Europe’s most popular destinations for beach breaks and buzzing nightlife. Made up of the islands of Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza, the Balearics have long, hot summers and short, mild winters. In May, temperatures continue to rise as the summer peak gets close. If you want to visit the islands away from the busier crowds of summer, May is a great month to choose.
The average temperature in Menorca, Majorca and Ibiza is 18ºC in May, with Majorca reaching the warmest average high of 23ºC. Although it gets warm enough to relax on the islands’ beaches during the day, you’ll need some extra layers for evenings out wherever you go, as temperatures can get quite cool after dark. All of the islands expect around 30mm of rain over the course of the month, while the Mediterranean Sea’s a comfortable 18ºC at this time.
