Mallorca in July: Weather and Things to Do (2024)

Considering jumping on a plane to the sunny island of Mallorca in July? Worried it might be just a party hotspot for the younger crowd and you may not be able to enjoy your vacation? We’re setting the record straight today!

Caleb and I are a couple in our mid-30’s and, while we love spending our time in wine bars or craft cocktail bars, our party days are behind us. We were concerned that Mallorca was a “party island” which is one of the reasons it took us so long to visit even after traveling to Spain 6 times! After personally visiting Mallorca, we were pleasantly surprised to find that it’s not the mega party scene of its neighbor, Ibiza. But, Is July the ideal time for a visit? Yes – if you love hot weather and beach vacations!

In this guide, we’ll break down everything—from the weather to must-do activities and what to pack for a July trip. And hey, if you’re more into visuals, check out the quick video I’ve put together!

Pros and Cons of Visiting Mallorca in July


Ah, July in Mallorca—where do we even start? First off, the weather in Mallorca July is perfect if you like it hot! Think long, sunny days perfect for beach hopping or sailing along the coast. If you’re into water sports, this is your month. From paddleboarding to snorkeling, the crystal-clear waters are full of life.

But it’s not just about the beaches. The island’s vibrant culture comes alive in July with local festivals and outdoor concerts. And let’s not forget the traditional food of Mallorca! Seafood is at its peak, and those oceanfront dinners are unforgettable! I, Taylor, still dream about the mussels I had in Palma!

There is A LOT you can do in July, so make sure you factor that in when you’re planning how many days to stay in Mallorca. You don’t want to miss out!


While July in Mallorca has its perks, it’s only fair to share the flip side of things you have to consider when thinking about when to visit Mallorca. First up, the heat can be intense. Mallorca in July weather means temperatures that can soar into the 90s°F, so if you’re not a fan of hot weather, pick a different month. Mallorca in March or Mallorca in September are great alternatives!

Then there’s the issue of crowds. Popular beaches and tourist spots can get really busy. 

And let’s talk expenses. July is peak tourist season, which means prices for flights, accommodations, and activities can be higher than other months. You’ll need to book well in advance and be prepared for a heftier price tag on your trip.

Lastly, it can get a bit rowdy in areas known for their party scene, like Palma Nova or Magaluf. If you’re looking for a quieter, more romantic atmosphere to do some couple-centered things in Mallorca, you’ll need to choose your location carefully and avoid those areas.

Things to Do in Mallorca in July

We’ll get to the specific festivals in a second, but here are some activities that Caleb and I think would be pretty some fabulous things to do for couples in July:

  • Sunrise Balloon Tour – This is probably the best thing to do for couples on the island. I mean, seeing the gorgeous sunrise while floating over the Mediterranean with mountain views? EPIC BUCKET LIST EXPERIENCE!
  • Beach Hopping: July is the prime time to explore Mallorca’s stunning beaches and we covered some of them in our epic Mallorca itinerary.
  • Sailing Adventures: Take advantage of the calm, crystal-clear waters by renting a sailboat or joining a sailing tour. While this is usually not our thing we decided to go outside of our comfort zone and do this catamaran tour when we visited Mallorca. Turns out, it was a highlight of our trip!

If you plan to rent a car, make sure to do so in advance. We booked through Discover Cars and it was a great experience!

Holidays and Events in July 2024

While July is all about lazy beach days there are some festivals that you should know about:

  • Deià International Music Festival: If you’re a fan of classical music, this is a must-attend. Set in the stunning Son Marroig estate, this festival showcases world-class musicians in an intimate setting. It usually runs from June to September. We’ll try to get dates up when they go live!
  • Local Fiestas & Fairs for La Verge del Carme: These local celebrations are the heart and soul of Mallorca in July. From sea parades to live music, the festivities honor the Patron Saint of seafarers and fishermen. 
  • Summer Evening Markets: Towns like Puerto Portals host these charming evening markets, and they’re a relaxed way to spend an evening and a great place to pick up some great Spanish souvenirs!

Hotels get booked really quickly, especially around festivals and the summer, so you want to book in advance! As Palma is a great base, here are our top picks for accommodation near Palma:

For a mid-budget accommodation (our go-to) we suggest this Airbnb as it’s centrally located in the center of Palma, walkable to basically all the sites, and is a traditional, Mallorcan-style apartment with a beautiful balcony! We loved it here but it’s not the cheapest or most luxurious option!

Budget: If you’re looking to save a buck, it’s a bit hard in Mallorca! However, we recommend MHOUSE Boutique Hotel Palma. It’s located in the heart of the city right by the antique train station for a winning location, and even has the option to have breakfast included!

Luxury: want to treat yourself? We recommend the Puro Grand Hotel! The place oozes romance and class with its Arabic-inspired design and charming courtyard (I mean, just look at it!) The location is central and amazing too!

What to Wear In Mallorca in July

Similarly to going to Mallorca in August, when it comes to dressing for Mallorca in July, think light and breezy. From visiting in June onwards, Mallorca in full-on summer mode, and you’ll want to be prepared for hot, sunny days. Breathable fabrics like cotton and linen will be lifesavers, especially when you go out exploring. Sun hats and sunglasses are also a must to protect against the strong Mediterranean sun.

For the ladies, sundresses and light skirts are perfect for the daytime, while a stylish pair of sandals can take you from the beach to dinner.

For the men, think casual shorts and breathable T-shirts for the day, and perhaps a light button-down shirt for the evening.

Packings Tips for Visting Mallorca in July

Here’s the lowdown on some packing essentials for visiting in July:

  • Light Layers: The heat is on, but some indoor spots can be chilly with air conditioning. A light shawl or scarf can be a game-changer.
  • Ditch the Flip-Flops: While they’re great for the beach, you’ll want sturdy sandals or walking shoes for exploring.
  • Driving Essentials: Closed-toe shoes are not just for hiking; they’re also a legal requirement for driving in Mallorca. So, keep those flip-flops for the beach.
  • Stay Connected: Pre-purchase a Spanish SIM card or go for Google Fi, which we absolutely love. It keeps you connected all the time.
  • Sun Protection: Don’t underestimate the Mediterranean sun. Pack a good sunscreen, a sun hat, and sunglasses.
  • Swimwear is a Must: July is hot, and you’ll definitely want to cool off in the sea. So, pack a couple of swimsuits so you don’t have to get into a wet one. No bueno!
  • Reusable Water Bottle: Staying hydrated is crucial in the July heat. A reusable water bottle ensures you have water on hand at all times- don’t worry, it’s safe to drink the tap water most places! I take my Owala water bottle everywhere we travel!
  • Portable Charger: With all the photos and navigation you’ll be doing, a portable charger can be a lifesaver to keep your phone ready to go. We love that this one has built-in cables!
