Mallorca Weather – August

August is an excellent time to visit Mallorca, especially if you like hot weather and don’t mind sharing the beaches and entertainment venues with many more holidaymakers.

You can expect very hot weather and around 10 hours of sunshine daily with little or no rain.

Daytime temperatures climb to an average high of 31°C (88°F) with a low of 18°C (64°F) at night. August is the hottest month of the year.

August is an excellent time for sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving and sailing. It’s also good for hiking and sightseeing Palma and the island’s many ancient and interesting towns on foot, bicycle and car. Spain’s traditional bull-fighting season is well under way during August.

Festivals not-to-miss, include…
  • Festival of Our Lady of Assumption, accompanied with pious processions and songs
  • Mock battle between ‘Moors and Christians’ in Pollenca, which is held on 2 August to commemorate the battle between the local hero Joan Mas and a pirate invasion of Moors
  • Sant Llorenc Fiesta on 10 August, with a week of events including sporting, musical and cultural activities to celebrate the town's patron saint
  • Sant Bartolomeu Fiesta, held in Montuiri on 23 and 24 August – one of Mallorca’s oldest festivals that features devil-dancing.

August is considered ‘the peak season’ in Mallorca with higher rates and the need to book flights and accommodation early.
