What’s the weather like in Nerja in May?

Located on the Costa del Sol on the south coast of Spain, the popular seaside resort of Nerja has a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild, damp winters. In May, Nerja is beautifully warm and sunny, with very little chance of rain. If you want to relax on the beach or explore the sights inland, this is a great month to visit, especially if you prefer to avoid the high season crowds.


The average temperature in Nerja at this time of year is 19°C, with highs of 24°C in the hottest part of the day. After dark temperatures dip to a low of 15°C, so it’s worth bringing a few warmer layers to wear on evenings out. Around 25mm of rain is expected over the course of the month, so any showers are usually short and sharp. For days at the beach, you can expect eight hours of sunshine and the Mediterranean waters to measure a refreshing 18°C.
