Weather in Menorca
Menorca has a typical Mediterranean climate with mild winters and hot summers. From the beginning of May to the end of October the weather on the island is dry with warm temperatures that are perfect for a Menorca villa holiday. One of the questions that our guests often ask before booking their villa is ¨What is the weather like in Menorca?”, to answer this question, we have prepared a month by month weather guide to help you decide which month is best for your visit to the island.
Weather in Menorca in May
The average daily maximum temperature in May is 22 ºC and the average minimum temperature is 14 ºC. Visitors will enjoy the sunshine and blue skies during the day and should pack a light jacket or a jumper for the cooler evenings. The rainfall in Menorca in May averages at 29mm (higher than June, July or August), therefore there is a small chance that you will catch a thunderstorm, however, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy on the odd rainy day! This is the beginning of the summer season, so beaches are quiet and villa rental prices are low.
Weather in Menorca in June
The average high temperature in June is 27 ºC and the average low is 17 ºC. This is the perfect month for visitors who are not restricted to travelling during school holidays. The weather in Menorca in June is warmer and drier than May, yet not as hot as July or August, and beaches are half as busy as they are in peak season. The average sea temperature in June is 21 ºC, which is ideal for cooling off during the hotter hours of the day! Villa rental prices for the month of June are a little higher than May, but still considerably lower than prices for July and August.

This is also the driest month of the year, with just 7mm of rainfall visitors are guaranteed to be bathed in sunshine! Beaches gradually get busier this month as school holidays begin in both the UK and European countries.
