East of Málaga: The Weather in Summer

In this beautiful area of La Axarquía, east of Málaga, the weather in summer is typically hot with little or no rainfall.  You can expect summer temperatures to be between 30 degrees Celsius to 35 degrees Celsius during the day, with overnight temperatures rarely dropping below 20 degrees Celsius.  Clear blue skies are virtually guaranteed.

As for clothing, or what to wear for your summer holiday on the eastern Costa del Sol – you will be able to wear shirt sleeves, sundresses or T-shirts and shorts every day, including in the evening.

In August, the weather can be almost unbearably hot with some days reaching 40 degrees Celsius or more.  Fortunately, on most days, there is  a cooling breeze, particularly during the afternoon.

Because the humidity is low you won’t feel that the temperature is as high as the thermometer is showing, so it is particularly important to take precautions by keeping out of the sun between 12 o’clock and 3 o’clock.  Always wear a high protection sun cream and drink lots of water.  It would also be sensible to wear a hat and sunglasses.

If you are renting a villa or apartment in the summer you may want to look for one with air conditioning or at least with ceiling fans, otherwise you may have trouble sleeping at night, especially if you are coming on holiday from a northern European country where the temperatures are usually much lower.

Do you enjoy the heat of summer or do you prefer the cooler, winter months?
