Climate in Benalmadena

Benalmadena has a subtropical climate. In the summer, that is, from May to August, it's always warm with clear skies. August is the warmest month and the temperature is around 30-35 degrees during the daytime. In total there are 300 days of sunshine a year in Benalmadena. In March, April and November the temperature is around 20 degrees at daytime. January is the coldest month with temperatures around 16 degrees at daytime. In the beginning of September, sea mist sometimes drifts in covering the town like a thick carpet. This usually lasts only for a few hours and only takes place under very special weather conditions.

Due to the proximity of the Gibraltar Strait, the wind conditions can change quite quickly in the winter. The Gibraltar Strait emits cold Atlantic waters and, depending on wind direction, the ocean temperature can also change within an hour both in summer and winter. When it's blowing from the south-west cold Atlantic water can be brought all the way to Benalmadena.

The climate in the winter can best be described as autumn in Northern Europe, and lasts from December to January. Spring starts in February and the trees start blooming again. In the mountains around Benalmadena and all of the Malaga province you can find hills with beautiful almond forests. Even though the weather can be really warm and nice during daytime, it usually gets chillier in the evening. A good tip is to bring a warm jacket if you are going to be sitting at an outdoor cafe or restaurant in the evening.
