The weather on the Costa del Sol is exactly what you would expect from the name “Sunny Coast”, sun, sun and more sun. It is one of the best, most reliable and healthiest climates in the world with more than 300 days of sunshine per year.
In the winter months the climate is temperate with average daytime temperatures of about 16ºC. There can be some rainy days during this period but when tends to vary from year to year and it seldom lasts more than a few days. It is a perfect climate during these months for playing golf. Check out our Costa del Sol Golf Courses page.
At the height of the summer in July and August the daytime temperatures reach about 30ºC or more in the sun and there is no rain – perhaps there may be one or two summer storms but nothing that will last too long.
If you prefer to visit the Costa del Sol when it is not too hot then May, June and September are lovely months. The summer crowds are not there, the temperatures are very pleasant and the restaurants and bars are not too busy.
Below is the current Costa del Sol weather and the latest 7 day forecast. Under that you will find two graphs showing the average monthly temperatures and rainfall throughout the year.
