The beauty of being in Mallorca in January is that the festivities continue way past Christmas. Straight after New Year’s Eve, there’s great anticipation for the arrival of the Three Kings on 5th January. Then there’s the centuries-old festival of Sant Antoni to look forward to, bringing parades, parties and bonfires to towns and villages across the island on the 16th and 17th of the month.
Concerts, fun for children and sport and cultural events; for just over a week from 13th January, Palma once again comes alive to honour the patron saint of the city, Sant Sebastia. Throw in some welcome winter sunshine and Mallorca in January is a joy.
Weather in Mallorca in January
The good news is that January is relatively dry, while the not-so-good is that this month is the coolest in Mallorca. There is typically plenty of sunshine around to warm daylight hours, however, and temperatures often reach average highs of 15°C. This, and infrequent rainfall, makes January a good time to go walking and cycling.
Forget the freeze and take a break in Mallorca this January. Yes it can be cold – but when the cloud clears the sun feels lovely and warm. […] Mallorca Weather in January
