Is June a high season in Mallorca? 

Mallorca's tourist season begins in April with a celebration of Easter.

Mallorca attracts tourists from Europe and other parts of the world during the spring. However, Mallorca's high tourist season starts in June.

Mallorca fills up 100% during the first month of summer. Free hotel rooms are almost impossible to find at this time. The beaches are full of holidaymakers. The weather is warm, the sun shines, and the sea is comfortable.

In June 2022, the Balearic Islands welcomed 1.9 million tourists. That's up by

198% more than in June 2021. Total tourist spending in Mallorca in June 2022 amounted to €2,177,000,000.00.

Is June a good time to go to Mallorca? 

In June, Mallorca is still notable for the differences in temperature between day and night. And this is an ideal time to visit the Island for those who can't stand the intense heat. Unlike July and August, June in Mallorca will give you a break from the high evening and night temperatures.

This is the perfect time to visit excursions, have a beach holiday and enjoy the festivities in Majorca in June. During the first summer month, Mallorca suits all holidaymakers. It will not leave even the most demanding and discerning traveller indifferent. 

What to Expect in Mallorca in June 

The most important argument for a holiday in Mallorca in June is that it is early in the season. The beaches are perfectly clean. The sea water is not yet at the same temperature as the air, and you'll find it lovely to cool off. The staff in the hotels, restaurants and other tourist areas are just starting their season. So you are sure to be welcomed as welcome guests.

Also, remember that Mallorca has a dry summer, and much of the greenery burns out in July and August. But June is when the grass is still green and has not turned into dry ground. The summer flowers are already blooming and adorning the whole Island.

In June in Mallorca, you can expect to have the best holiday of your life in Europe's premier resort. And to keep the experience fresh in your mind, you can capture some of the stunning sunsets you'll experience in Mallorca in June.

But don't rush to get upset. Mallorca is a modern and popular

resort. The Island is perfectly prepared to receive tourists. And with July and August seeing tourist numbers double from June, it's safe to say you'll have a comfortable holiday.

If you want to buy a property, starting your search early in the year must ensure you have enough time to find the right property and complete the purchase before the high season begins. However, remember that prices may be higher during the high season, so you may want to negotiate to get the best deal possible.
