Costa Del Sol
What’s the weather like on the Costa del Sol in August?
One of Spain’s most popular holiday destinations, the Costa del Sol is on the country’s south coast. It has a Mediterranean climate that brings long, hot summers and short, mild winters to the region. In August, the Costa del Sol is at the peak of the high season, with plenty of glorious sunshine and almost no rain attracting crowds of tourists to the coast. If you want to relax on the beach, swim in the clear blue seas or explore the cultural sights, August is a great month to visit the Costa del Sol.
At this time of year, the average temperature on the Costa del Sol is 26°C, rising to a hot 29°C in the afternoons. UV levels are high in August, so make sure you’re careful in the sun, especially if you’re visiting with young children. Only 5mm of rain’s expected during the month, so it’s unlikely you’ll experience any rain, while the Mediterranean waters are a warm 23°C and perfect for swimming or snorkelling. After dark temperatures drop to 19°C, so you may need a jumper for evenings out.
