Climate in Fuengirola

Fuengirola 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 Fuengirola. 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 Fuengirola.
