December is probably not the best time to visit Mallorca if you plan to swim and sunbathe on the beach, but it’s fine to explore the island by car or on foot.
You can expect cold weather and around five hours of sunshine daily with occasional rain showers.
Daytime temperatures reach an average high of 16°C (61°F) with a low of 6°C (43°F) at night.
Although too cold for sunbathing and swimming, December is a good time for sightseeing and exploring the atmospheric old streets of Palma and the island’s many ancient and interesting towns on foot, bicycle and car.
From around the first weekend of December, you can find all sorts of religious memorabilia and Christmas gifts at the annual Christmas markets that line Palma's many squares.
