Costa Del Sol. Climate

The climate is without doubt the determining factor for the appearance and formation of the Costa del Sol as a first class international tourist area. The more than 300 days of sun per year, and the rest up to 365 which are also pleasant, plus the good average annual temperature, are the best identity cards to define the mildness of the coastal Málaga climate, protected as it is from the cold meseta winds by the mountain chain near the coast, with mild winters, pleasant springs and autumns, and summers (with some exceptions) which are generally fresh for the sea breeze. But also, the average temperature of the sea oscillates between 15 or 16ºC in the winter months, and around 20ºC during the summer. It is not risky therefore to state that the Costa del Sol has the best climate in Europe with the singularity of adding that the visitor can get a tan in the winter and be skiing in Sierra Nevada, only two hours away, in Granada which is the most southern winter ski resort in the European continent.
