Mallorca in November: Weather and Best Things to Do (2024)

Thinking about escaping the winter cold to Mallorca in November? Wondering if you’ll be greeted by sunny skies or if your vacay will be ruined by the same chilly winds that you’re trying to get away from? We’re here to help!

We’ve explored Mallorca and Spain in general in various seasons and, while it’s not the best time for the beach, we think that November holds a special charm. It’s a time when the island slows down, offering a more authentic experience. So, is November a good time to visit? For us, we say yes! The month offers mild temperatures and fewer crowds, making it perfect for couples seeking a romantic and peaceful getaway from the arctic tundra that some US states can become in the winter!

In this post, we’ll cover everything from the November weather on the Balearic islands to activities that shine this month. And for those who love visuals, I’ve got a quick video summarizing it all. 

Let’s get started!

From the author: I have personally visited the beautiful island of Mallorca, and been to Spain during all 4 seasons, so I consider myself an expert on Spain travel! If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I will respond as soon as possible!

Pros and Cons of Visiting Mallorca in November


We say that November in Mallorca is an off-the-beaten-path gem because the crowds have thinned out, giving you the freedom to explore the island without bumping elbows. You’ll love being able to wander through quaint villages and dine in local spots without the usual wait.

The weather is mild, making it perfect for scenic drives and strolls through historic Palma.

Finally, with the summer season at a close, you will enjoy cheaper prices of accommodation and flights which is always nice to give your wallet a break! 


While November can be a great time to do it, it might not be ideal for you.

 Much like visiting Mallorca in October, Majorca weather in November brings its share of cloudy days and occasional rain showers, so beach time is pretty much off the table.

While we enjoy a quieter atmosphere, some of you might miss the bustling summer vibe of busier months like July and find that many tourist spots are closed for the season, which usually ends in August. You could also consider September to visit Mallorca as it’s still warm and busy but less busy than the summer!

Hotels get booked really quickly, especially around festivals, 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 October

November in Mallorca brings a chill in the air, so it’s time to think layers, folks! During the day, you’ll find it comfortable enough for a light sweater or long-sleeve tee. But as the sun dips, you’ll be reaching for that warm jacket. We found ourselves loving the versatility of a good fleece—it’s warm but not bulky.

For the Gents: A versatile jacket is a must. Also, pack some long pants and maybe a toque for those cooler evenings. A pair of sturdy walking shoes will serve you well, especially if you’re hitting up any of the local trails.

For the Ladies: A pashmina or shawl can be a game-changer for those cooler nights. Pair it with some ankle boots and you’re good to go for a night out in Palma or a stroll around Castell Bellver.
