The climate is warmer than the UK winter, and so makes an ideal getaway for those looking to explore the island while it is quiet.

The temperature is extremely stable in January with average highs of 14℃ and lows just 4℃ lower at 11℃. 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 January?

On average, there will be 10 rainy days during the month, amounting to 23.5mm 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 January?

The water around Mallorca is a bracing 15℃ during January and would be considered too cold for swimming. Those who are a bit more hardy or frequently swim in cooler open water might want to take a quick dip. A wetsuit would be advisable if you wish to spend longer than 5 minutes in the water.
