What’s the weather like on the Costa del Sol in May?The Costa del Sol, otherwise known as the ‘Sunshine Coast’, has a Mediterranean climate thanks to its location in the south of Spain. If you want to escape the high season crowds, May is a great time to visit. The resorts are quieter, but the days are getting warmer and sunnier as summer approaches. With cool nights and mild days with lots of lovely sunshine, you’ll need to pack your summer wardrobe along with a few jumpers for the evenings.
AveragesThe average daytime temperature on the Costa del Sol is 18°C in May, with highs of 23°C making it warm enough to enjoy days on the beach. At night, the temperature dips to 13°C, so pack a few layers to keep you comfortable on evenings out. With just 23mm of rain expected over the course of three days, it’s unlikely you’ll need a raincoat, and any showers will be short-lived. The sea temperature is a cool 18°C at this time of year.
