Weather in Costa Blanca, Spain

Seasonal Weather in Costa Blanca, Spain

A huge attraction for visitors to the magnificent Costa Blanca is the fact that the sun shines almost continuously in this part of the world. Both summer and winter days provide blue clear, cloudless skies and nights that display a blanket of twinkling stars.

Fringing the eastern coastline of Spain, along the edge of the province of Alicante, the Costa Blanca or ‘White Coast’ enjoys one of the best climates in the world. The Costa Blanca’s magnificent natural scenery, pristine beaches and year-round pleasant climes have made it one of Europe’s most popular summer destinations.

Summer months enjoy temperatures in the eighties (28-31⁰C), making for perfect days on the beach. Winters along the Costa Blanca are cooler, with temperatures in the low-sixties (15-18⁰C), which is ideal for enjoying various outdoor activities around the coast and is still very enjoyable to social Al Fresco style with a nice bottle of wine.

As the Costa Blanca stretches for over 200 kms along the coast, temperatures can vary dramatically in different parts of this region – some places in the deep south of the Costa Blanca can see temperatures soaring to over 100⁰F (38⁰C) degrees during the summer, while areas in the inner higher-lying mountainous areas of the region can become quite chilly in the winter. In Moraira, Denia, Javea, Calpe, Jalon valley and the surrounding regions we have homes for rent, we consider this the ideal location in Costa Blanca with what is effectively ideal lifestyle living throughout the year.

The Best Times to Visit

The summer months between May and September are most definitely the best time to visit. Days are beautifully warm with cloudless blue skies, the Mediterranean Sea is balmy enough to float in for hours, and long evenings are the perfect temperature to head out in short sleeves to nearby tapas bars.

If you want to enjoy the pristine beauty that the Costa Blanca has to offer without the summers heat, head to the coast in the cooler winter months between November and April, where daily temperatures hover around 16⁰C and the air is crisp and clear. This time of year is excellent for golfing, hiking and general outdoor adventures.

The month of October sees the most rainfall in the region due to the Gotta Fria – a unique weather phenomenon that occurs in this region of Spain specifically during this month. It is better to avoid October and wait for the clear blue skies of November.
