What’s the weather like in Benidorm in September?
The location of Benidorm in southeast Spain on the country’s Mediterranean coastline means the city’s long, hot summer continues into September. Temperatures start to cool slightly from August’s peak, yet remain nice and high.
Benidorm’s Mediterranean weather’s made even better by the surrounding mountains which give the city even higher temperatures and clearer skies. The Serra Gelada Mountains to the east of Benidorm protect it from winds, as well as providing great opportunities for exploring the local terrain. The city’s south-facing beach is ideal for making the most of the 300-plus days of sunshine each year.
The average high’s 28ºC in September, which cools to a pleasant 17ºC at night, so you won’t need to bring too many warmer clothes for the evenings. The sea temperature’s 25ºC, while humidity’s moderate. Average rainfall’s 42mm over six rainy days, and you can expect eight hours of sunshine from the 12 hours of daylight each day. Make sure you wear sun cream as UV levels will be high. Sunset’s at 8.30pm at the start of September and gradually gets earlier as the month goes on.
Things to Do
The weather’s ideal for lounging around in the sun, and Playa de Levante’s great if you’re looking for a lively beach, while Playa de Poniente has a more relaxing vibe. If you want to spend some time away from the beach then head out to the mountains or Algar waterfalls, take a boat trip to Peacock Island, or splash around at Aqualandia waterpark before enjoying the best of the Costa Blanca’s nightlife.
