The Costa Blanca Weather

When you take your holiday to Costa Blanca, you’ll want to be sure that you put in enough preparation to guarantee that your trip will be one to remember. Finding an accommodation that fits your budget and suits your tastes is an important step in the planning process, as is researching a number of attractions and outings that will give you a break from the beach. One of the most important components that will go a long way in determining the success of your holiday is the weather. And although you can’t control it, you can rest assured that if you travel during peak tourist season – June through August – the Costa Blanca weather will give you nothing to worry about.

Costa Blanca is known for its typically Mediterranean climate – that is, hot, dry summers and mild sunny winters. Between June and August, you can count on long, hot, and sunny days. A typical daytime high is around 32°C, so if you’re sensitive to heat, you should make sure to keep in the shade and drink plenty of water. Additionally, rainfall is of little concern during the summer; the three summer months each average merely one rainy day. So, if you’re looking for a place whose weather caters to swimming and beach lounging, then Costa Blanca is second to none.

Even if you choose to travel during the off-season, you probably won’t encounter cold temperatures. It’s not highly unusual for temperatures to reach 25°C in the middle of January, though occasionally at night it will drop to around 5°C. The winter months are considered the “rainy” season, though it typically only rains an average of 4-5 days between October and April. Therefore, the Costa Blanca weather ensures that there’s really not a bad time of year to make travel plans to this beautiful Mediterranean oasis on the eastern coast of Spain.

If you are planning on renting one of the many holiday villas on the Costa Blanca during the winter it is important to ensure that the property has adequate heating as winter nights can be very chilly.
