Santa Ponsa is a popular tourist village in the municipality of Calvià in the southwest coast of Mallorca, the climate of Santa Ponsa is what makes it the perfect place to enjoy a holiday in Mallorca. Its numerous beaches, marina and atmosphere attracts hundreds of tourists every year. The hillside location means that it has a very dry climate with hot summers and mild winters which is why the terraces, restaurants, the promenade and the shops are full of life and thriving throughout the year. As with most of the other parts of the island Santa Ponsa enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, this climate has two very different seasons, on the one hand May to September the weather is hot and dry with an average temperature of 27ºC, with August being the hottest month.
