Costa Del Sol Temperatures and some practical advice
We have lived here for over 13 years now and can tell you that the weather has changed incredibly over the years. 2016, for example, has been one of the strangest years. We had a very dry winter and desperately needed some rain or we knew there would be trouble in the summer months.
January and February were quite mild. March there were days where it was so hot it felt like summer. Easter has always been a dodgy month where it can rain a lot causing flooding but this year it was early in March and there were a couple of nice days followed by some rain. Then we had a really cold spell towards the end of April where some people were backlighting their fires. Then this was followed by the strangest weather for over a week. It was literally 4 seasons in an hour for over 7 days, wind, sun, rain, cloud. Then finally Mid – Late May the temperature just shot up and all of a sudden boiling hot and summer arrived.
January to February
A lot of warm days, and when the sun is out you can definitely walk around in a T-shirt but when you step into the shade you feel the cold. You can get some cold winds and when it rains it pours and can get chilly. Pack jackets, jumpers and coats for the evening and some days. Most apartments have marble or stone tiled floors which get chilly so bring slippers. This is the time of year when you see the Spanish in fur coats and the English in vests and shorts!
March to April
In the eight years, we have lived here it’s been wet at the end of March and beginning of April … and I mean wet, as this seems to be the rainy season! So bring something waterproof or an umbrella just in case. If it’s not raining it can get quite warm, but you will certainly need cardigans or jackets for the evenings.
Warm but not too hot! You can usually guarantee some sunbathing but the evenings can be a bit chilly so bring a jacket or wrap. You can still get some rain during this month.
June, July & August
HOT!!! so bring things to keep you cool. July and August are the hottest months on the Costa Del Sol with temperatures being known to reach 45°C, but this is rare. Normal temperatures are in the high 30’s so bring lots of cool, loose clothing and a hat to protect you in the sun.
A lovely month, hot at the beginning and cooling down at the end. The school holidays are over the tourist season quietens down a bit. You shouldn’t need a jacket or coat but bring one just in case if you are coming at the end of September.

A bit like April as this is the month when the Costa Del Sol weather changes. The cooler weather comes along with the rain. October is the time that unheated swimming pools stop being used, but you should still get some sunbathing weather – but the days are shorter.
November & December
When its sunny it’s warm – and when there’s no sun it’s chilly. Weather is similar to January & February. Make sure you bring the slippers for those cold floors. A few years ago it was 21°C on Christmas Day and there were people on the beach!
The year-round temperate climate on the Costa del Sol means that planning outdoor activities
is not restricted to the “odd” nice day in the winter. We have therefore provided information on a selection of things to do including articles on all Costa Del Sol Markets, a selection of Costa Del Sol Theme Parks and Plaza Mayor – a large entertainment complex adjacent to Malaga Airport
