Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, we at SeeMallorca have been speculating what the summer of 2020 would look like here. At times, we wondered whether the island would be able to welcome foreigners at all but, over the past couple of months, restrictions have been lifting with no increase in Coronavirus cases.

The Spanish government hasn’t made any decisions lightly but, as part of their pilot tourism scheme, they have welcomed some Germans to travel to Mallorca since the middle of June. An announcement that direct flights between the Mallorca and the UK will resume from July 1st soon followed.

The island is predicted to be a popular place for Europeans to escape after a challenging few months. Some safety restrictions are likely to remain in place throughout the summer to keep the island’s residents and visitors safe, so do pack your face mask! But the good news is that there will be no compulsory self-isolation for tourists. A number of hotels will be welcoming guests from July and, whilst many will just enjoy an opportunity to kick back and soak up the Mediterranean sunshine, there’s much more to do in Mallorca in July.

What's the weather like in Mallorca in July?

July is one of the hottest months of the year in Mallorca. You can expect an average of 11 hours of sunshine per day and an average temperature of 25°C towards the end of the month. Sun worshippers will be pleased to hear it’s common for temperatures to reach the late twenties and early thirties! Sunrise is between 06:25 and 06:50 throughout July while sunsets can be enjoyed at 21:20 at the beginning of the month, reducing to just past 21:00 towards the end.

What to do in Mallorca in July?

Soak up the sun
There’s plenty of opportunity to kick back and relax in the sunshine in July, whether it be poolside at one of Mallorca’s handsome hotels or one of the glorious beaches and beach clubs on offer. We advise checking into the Son Julia Country House & Spa to enjoy some much-needed rest and rehabilitation, due to its charming character, friendly staff and close proximity to Palma’s airport.

Get outdoors
Doing nothing may be the perfect recipe to recharge after weeks in lockdown but, at the same time, we recommend getting out and exploring the island while fewer tourists are around. Our sources around Mallorca claim the sea and beaches are now at their absolute best, so it's an impeccable time to be getting up close and personal with the legendary turquoise Mediterranean waters. It’s possible to investigate the scenic coastline by booking onto one of the scheduled boat trips departing from the various ports or, for a private affair, you can charter your own yacht for the day, a week or longer! Watersports are also a great way to explore, and there are various activities to enjoy including jet-skiing, flyboarding, wakeboarding, kayaking, paddle boarding, scuba diving and snorkelling. 

Book Things To Do

Taste the local wine
A tour and tasting at one of the award-winning vineyards dotted around the island is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about Mallorca’s rich history of wine production and trial some local produce. Or, if gin is your tipple of choice, then a trip to the founders of Palma Gin at the Mallorca Distillery should 100% be on your hit list this summer! These are perfect activities to escape the sun-loungers in the heat of the day.

Book Guides/Tours

Mingle with the locals at a market
We are thrilled to see that many of Mallorca’s markets are up and running around the island. Some of our favourites include Artá on a Tuesday, Sineu on a Wednesday and Sóller on a Saturday. It is advised to arrive early in the morning to avoid getting too hot whilst walking around. And remember to wear a mask! If it’s local produce you’re after, Mercat de l’Olivar in Palma is a wonderful place to get hold of all the tasty culinary treats you could want and is open Monday-Saturday from 07:00 to 14:30 (15:00 on Saturdays).

Escape to the city
Palma’s city centre is enjoying the new normal with most shops, restaurants and bars open for business. For those craving these amenities, Santa Clara Urban Hotel & Spa is a wonderful place to base oneself for a city break and is welcoming guests throughout July.

Visit a beach club
Beach clubs are full of bronzed beautiful bodies throughout July. If you're after VIP treatment and a fun atmosphere, then Nikki Beach is renowned for hosting the coolest parties. This month they're opening their doors on July 2nd, and we are expecting a memorable celebration as they kick off their summer season in true Nikki Beach style. For a chilled-out beach-club vibe, Mhares Sea Club should be on your radar. While away the day on their Balinese beds, indulge in top-notch Mallorcan cuisine in their Tamarell Restaurant and end the day with a cocktail in hand while enjoying the DJ sets in Bauxa Bar, an unbeatable clifftop chillout zone.
