Every day we get e-mails from people asking he most basic of questions like: "What's the weather like?" to such questions as: "How far is it from my hotel to the middle of Cala Millor?" We answer every single e-mail we receive but have listed those most frequently asked questions below, which will (a) hopefully answer your queries and (b) reduce our workload!
OK, let's start with - What is the weather like?"
Hot...Between May and October it is virtually sunshine all the way with very little rain. In July and August it can be very humid and at night it is very sticky. If you come to Cala Millor or Cala Bona over the Winter months you will need to bring a jumper and/or coat for the evenings because it does go cooler but there will almost certainly be some stage each day when you can still enjoy the sun.
