The island enjoys around 5-7 hours of daily sunshine, similar to December, but the skies tend to be more overcast, featuring clear conditions about 50% of the time. November is one of the wetter months, with a 30-35% chance of precipitation, translating to approximately 8-10 rainy days. This doesn’t always mean that it rains all day.

Despite occasional rain, Mallorca in November offers a blend of mild temperatures, some sunshine, and a touch of cloud cover, creating a versatile and inviting environment for visitors.

When Dave and I visited Mallorca in November, we had unseasonally warm weather with temperatures during the day in the 70s. After talking with some locals, they mentioned that there is often a week during November that gets these warmer temperatures (like a second or last summer). If you don’t get lucky, you can also get cold and rainy conditions as well!

Tips for Visiting Mallorca in November


Since the weather in Mallorca in November is variable it’s best to pack layers. Dave and I found the temperatures throughout the day to vary and usually started off the day in long sleeves and pants. By the afternoon we were usually wearing t-shirt while hiking.

Make sure you pack rain layers as there is more rain in Mallorca during this part of the year.

Planning Your Days

While we experienced unseasonably warm weather, we still planned our days around the weather. As mornings were cool, we got a start by around 9 each day and were able to eat breakfast outside with lots of layers.

Afternoons are the warmest and we were usually exploring towns, hiking or on one very warm day – swimming.

The sun set in November around 6:00 PM so we were careful to finish our activities in the light. If you plan to sit outside to eat, be prepared with plenty of layers.

What’s Open in November in Mallorca

Since November is the off season on the island, not everything in open in Mallorca in November. This is especially true of shops and restaurants on the coast. For this reason, we recommend staying at one of the inland towns in November. W

Dave and I booked an apartment in Port de Soller and while this was a great spot, very few resteraunts were open as we ended up driving to Soller for breakfast and dinner. We recommend Valdemossa or Soller as two good options for places to stay that will still have restaurants open in November.
