Weather Overview for fuengirola

Situated in Spain's province of Malaga, Fuengirola enjoys the sub-tropical Mediterranean climate of the Costa del Sol. Long, hot summers are accompanied by mild, unpredictable winters.

Summers in Fuengirola are very long and hot. It is a favourite for sport enthusiasts seeking the area’s long stretches of perfect weather. In June eleven hours of sunshine per day is average, though it sometimes appears hazy. The sea gets up to a comfortable 20°C and low humidity takes the edge off the heat. The peak months of July and August see temperatures around 30°C and the cooling sea breeze cannot always be relied upon for relief. On average, this is the hottest time of the year. From July 31st through August 16th, the average temperature is 30°C and the low doesn’t go below 20°C. Blue skies and brilliant sunshine are to be expected every day with little exception and the sea sometimes reaches the mid 20s. September remains very hot, humidity levels rise, without much chance of refreshing rain, and fog often loiters over the beaches. In the early and late months of the summer, May and October, day time temperatures are regularly in the mid 20s, while the evenings can be considerably cooler seeing average lows around 13°C. These are considered by some to be the best months to visit this area of Spain as the heat only reaches uncomfortable levels in the middle of the day. However, while in May sunshine can be guaranteed, the sea has not had time to warm up, lingering around 17°C, and in October the region is prone to unpredictable thunderstorms. However, these bursts of rain are usually short, torrential downpours. During the summer months in which people are most likely to be swimming, April through September, the wind speed rarely goes above 35km/h (21 mph). This is enough to produce moderate waves, but overall, the water is still mostly calm at this wind speed.

Autumnwinter and spring are characterised by unpredictability. The middle of winter in December and January is certainly the coldest point of the year on average, with the coldest time of the year typically being around mid-January, with an average high of just 15°C and the low coming in at 6°C. The entire period from November to April sees huge discrepancies between weather conditions from one day to the next. Rain and thunder can last for days and temperatures can drop enough to see the occasional frost, yet other days will receive brilliant sunshine and temperatures into the low 20s. In November the sea is still warm enough to dip into, after which it cools down till the summer. February sees Fuengirola’s springtime and the blossoming of Andalucian almond trees. Sitting on Spain’s most popular coast, Fuengirola’s climate can be attributed to its location and geography. It is right on the clear Mediterranean Sea in southern Spain and is protected by the surrounding hills. The result is a sun trap with cooling breezes from the sea for some of the summer.

While winter weather is unpredictable and heavy rains can last for prolonged periods, summer months are reliably hot and clear, rainfall occurring in short bursts. The windiest time of the year in Fuengirola is in the fall and winter months (October through March), and even then the wind speed is rarely higher than 55km/h (34 mph). This is powerful wind, but again, you likely won’t be in the water during this time anyway.

Weather Hazards

In the past few years, there have been incidents of forest fires in southern Spain, and while none have reached Fuengirola, nearby city Malaga was affected. Malaga is about a 30 minute drive north of Fuengirola up the coast, close enough for some smoke from the fires to be seen, although far enough away to not be threatened. The spread of the fires are often caused by dry environments from lack of rainfall, in addition to a strong wind pushing the fire.
