October 2021 Majorca

12 October 2021 | 

October is one of the best times of the year to visit Majorca if you like warm
temperatures, great weather, and thinner crowds – perfect for the school breaks.
As mentioned before, Majorca is truly amazing in autumn!
Even though it is autumn, Majorca still enjoys warm weather in October. The weather
is still wonderfully pleasant with highs of 25 degrees and lows of 14 degrees at night.
So, pack a good selection of swimwear but also some warmer things for the evenings.
October is usually a month full of traditional fairs celebrating the harvest and local
produce but due to the pandemic nothing is as it normally should be, and most of
them have been cancelled.
The cooler temperature makes it ideal for wine trails, a cycling holiday, go hiking or
even running in beautiful Serra de Tramuntana, playing a few rounds of golf on one of
the many beautiful golf courses on the island, rent a yacht, going to local festivals,
taking a swim after a nice morning walk along the sea or why not a take a dip in the
sea in the evening before you go out for dinner in one of the many nice restaurants but
without the summer crowds.
