Mallorca has a fresh feel in winter. The Mediterranean cools off and rain increases throughout the month, although you're unlikely to experience a washout. The climate is warmer than the UK winter, and so makes an ideal getaway for those looking for peace and quiet. We've looked at the most up-to-date weather data for Mallorca, covering the last 12 years up to 2021, plus we've asked our team of travel bloggers for their first-hand experiences in order to answer the most frequently asked questions about Mallorca weather in December.
What's the temperature like in Mallorca during December?
The temperature is extremely stable in December with average highs of 15℃ and lows just 4℃ lower at 12℃. The UV index will be moderate at this time of year, so not something to worry about for the average person. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's worth wearing a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen and UV-blocking sunglasses. Remember that bright surfaces, such as water and sand increase UV exposure.
Does it rain in Mallorca during December?
On average, there will be 8 rainy days during the month, amounting to 20.3mm in total. That's much drier than we see in England during August, and therefore not something to be concerned about. There's a small chance that you'll catch a thunderstorm during your trip.
How warm is the sea in Mallorca during December?
The water around Mallorca is around 17℃ during December. It will feel a little on the cool when first entering, but you'll warm up quickly. Most kids will have no problem with this temperature, but those who feel the cold are unlikely to want to swim.

29th January 2021 by Savoir ThereExcursions by car in Mallorca: 6 unusual ideas
Brits love nothing more than a sunny summer holiday to the Balearic Islands.
