Palma nova weather 2019 - swimming end of april?

Hey,

We're going to Palma last week of April-beginning of May. This is the earliest we've ever been on a summer holiday.

Anyone braved the sea at this time?

Also are there any recommendations of places to go if it does rain?

Thanks in advance :)

Bring your wetsuit 😆 chilly it will be but may be bearable if the sun is strong and it’s warm, for info sea temp at the start of May tends to be approx 16 degrees which is what you’d get in the uk on the south coast mid summer. If it rains hop on the bus to Palma, loads to do and see.

Agree about the wetsuit. I don't really know why but I can handle swimming in Sussex in August and September but not in the Med before June. Might be about expectation, outdoor temperature etc. Children don't seem to mind it!

Hi we are going in the last week of April. If the weather isn’t great I’ve looked at trying a diving course for beginners, going into palma, taking a walk or bike to portals nous or other close by places.

A short video of swimming in the sea at Palmanova on 17 May 2017.

It wasn't too cold obviously, there were several people in the water.

We are going end of April so it may be considerably different to when you went mid may. However looks like you had fun!

Yes, if you look at the link below it shows from the end of April sea temp rises rapidly with the longer sunny days.

We are people that love to float and dip in the sea not so much into diving lol however we will definitely take on the suggestion of walking to nearer attractions. Hope you have a great time!

I hope so! Yeah we have sunny days at the moment and it can feel quite warm that's only about 14 degrees. So hopefully it should be fine in majorca when we go if we stay in the sun. Swimming though hmm probably not by the looks of it

We have braved the sea in late April, have to pluck up courage to take the first submerge, but once you're in it's ok. Have you been on the old train from Palma to Soller and then the tram down to Port Soller?

This will be our first time staying in palma nova, so we aren't too familiar with the area. We are glad for your suggestions though.

We went mid may last year and the water was freezing but people were in it. I know the weather can change year upon year though at that time, not sure about the sea!
