What’s the weather like in Mahon in December?
Even though it’s one of the wettest and coolest months, Mahon weather in December still makes it a pleasant place to visit and warmer and drier than many mainland Spanish resorts.

The Mediterranean Sea around Menorca, which is the most northerly and eastern of the Balearic Islands, is the main reason why temperatures in Mahon stay so mild in winter months like December. Menorca can be affected by local winds, so sometimes blustery weather will pass over the region.
