What’s the weather like in Marbella in May?
Marbella is on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, which means it has typical Mediterranean weather all year round. With summer just around the corner, you’ll find that temperatures are getting hotter in May and there’s not much rain. The Sierra Blanca Mountains will shelter you from winds, which means you’ll be warmer than in other places on the Costa del Sol. If you prefer fewer crowds and cooler temperatures, this is a great time for you to visit.
The average high in Marbella is 23ºC in May, which is lovely for relaxing by the pool or on the beach. Things can get quite cool in the evenings though, so you should bring some warmer clothes with you. The sea temperature is 18ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 23mm of rain over three days, and you can expect 14 hours of daylight with nine hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high, so don’t forget your sun cream. Sunset’s nice and late, just after 9pm at the start of the month, and gradually gets later.
