Mallorca Weather – January

January is probably not the best time to visit Mallorca if you plan on swimming and sunbathing, but it’s still fine to explore the island by car or on foot.

You can expect cool weather and around five hours of sunshine daily with occasional rain showers.

Daytime temperatures reach an average high of 15°C (59°F) with a low of 5°C (41°F) at night. January is the coldest month of the year and snow is common in the mountains.

Although too cold for sunbathing and swimming, January is a good time for sightseeing the atmospheric old streets of Palma and exploring the island by car, foot or bicycle.

January festivals in Mallorca not-to-miss, include…
  • Three Kings Celebration (Cabalgata de los Reyes Magos) on 5 January, with its procession of floats celebrating the eve of The Epiphany
  • The two-day celebration for Sant Antoni, held on 16-17 January
