What’s the weather like on the Costa del Sol in January?

With its subtropical climate on the Spanish Mediterranean coast, the Costa del Sol experiences cool winters with the risk of showers and windy weather. If you’re visiting the Costa del Sol in January, be prepared for quite mild temperatures, making sure you pack plenty of layers. Although it’s the coldest month of the year on the ‘sunshine coast’, January is still a good time to visit Spain if you’re looking for warmer temperatures than the freezing winter back home. You’ll only have the odd shower and plenty of blue skies.


With average daily temperatures of 11°C, January is a pleasant month on the Costa del Sol, especially in comparison with the summer weather. If you visit the Costa del Sol in the New Year you can expect highs of 15°C and lows of 6°C, so pack warm clothes for the evenings. Five hours of sunshine are expected each day, while the month sees around 83mm of rain. Sea temperatures are around 16°C, which is warm enough to swim if you’re feeling brave.
