Benidorm

Weather in Benidorm

Believe it or not, Benidorm has an exceptionally sunny climate almost all year round and we've got its location on the Mediterranean coastline of southeast Spain to thank for that. From long, hot summers to pleasantly mild winters, its surrounding mountains help to keep things toasty along with clearer skies and less winds.

Boasting over 300 sunny days every year, the question everyone wants to know is when exactly is the best time to visit Benidorm? To help you out, here's an overview of what you can expect month by month.

Costa Blanca may not be the first winter holiday destination that springs to mind in January, but it's certainly a great place to go for somewhere that's warmer than the UK's minus temperatures! Even though the heat only hovers around 12°C, the sunshine stays out for a lengthy ten hours each day and doesn't set until around 6pm – makes a change to those early dark nights that we're used to! As for rain, there's an average of 12mm this month so chances are it will just be the odd shower.

Average Rainfall: 2mm per month

Although Benidorm's weather in February is still very mild, temperatures have been known to reach up to 18°C on the odd occasion and there's only a tiny 2mm average of rainfall. It may be a little too cold to swim in the sea at this time of year but the good news is many hotels have the added benefit of an indoor or heated pool, so you can certainly still pack your swimming costume! As for an evening, we'd recommend packing something a little warmer as temperatures can drop to around 6°C.
