The month of October in Mallorca offers many possibilities to those visiting: from relaxing and enjoying its cultural heritage and history, enjoying freedom from long queues and overwhelming tourism, through to exploring nature and the thrill of marvelous adventures.
The weather in autumn: mild temperatures and potential showers
As one would expect during this season, the trees lose their leaves and the countryside returns to its green tones after the long dry summer. In Mallorca the autumn is a season defined by mild temperatures and more varied meteorological conditions. The sun shines most days but the skies can swiftly shift and let out showers, sometimes even unleashing downpour in torrential amounts.
Furthermore, the difference in temperatures from day to night time can be quite marked, meaning it is advisable to always have a jacket with you for the cold and/or a rain coat for the rain during October in Mallorca.
