Temperature: Expect mid-20s to the low-30s (°C) in summer.
Best time to go: Choose in spring or autumn if you like it warm but not too hot.
Situated right on the Mediterranean Sea, the region enjoys one of Spain’s mildest climates. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, temperatures reach the 20s (°C) by April and it just keeps climbing from then on. Sizzling highs arrive in July and August. And if you like things slightly cooler, October is ideal for a little autumn sunshine.
Beach lovers: This sun-kissed coastline is sprinkled with stunning beaches where you can sit back and relax. Grab a sub lounger if you want a little extra comfort.
Families: Take Costa de Almería holidays with your family and you’ll have plenty of daytrip options to keep you busy. How about a day out to see the stars at the Mini Hollywood Theme Park?
Couples: Gleaming white villas, sunset walks on the beach, and cute waterfront restaurants: it’s just perfect for a romantic getaway.
