islands get less than 100 millimeters of annual precipitation, most of

coast get more rain. However, the popular seaside resorts can be found
in the drier parts of the island. If you stay on one of the islands

weather really starts to be pleasant. The temperature of the sea
usually rises above 20 degrees Celsius (68.0 degrees Fahrenheit) in
June to drop below 20 degrees Celsius (68.0 degrees Fahrenheit) in the

temperatures are around 30 degrees Celsius (86.0 degrees Fahrenheit).
During the night temperatures remain around 20 degrees Celsius (68.0

weather is almost always very pleasant on the Balearic Islands.
