Weather Overview for La manga
La Manga lies within the
When you are in La Manga it is a very beautiful sight to look away from the Med and look inwards toward the ‘main land’ and set your eyes across the inlet which looks as though it is a small lake. At the deepest point in the Mar Menor you will find it is no deeper than 8 metres- which helps to keep the water temperature warm all year round, with an average yearly temperature of 17 ºC.
La Manga hosts a Mediterranean, semi
arid climate which has been known to see temperature extremes across the
seasons. The hottest temperature ever recorded in
Throughout a typical year, the summers are generally long and hot and the winters are short and mild. Rain is pretty much absent throughout the entirety of summer and the shoulder seasons of spring and autumn have a tendency to be the wettest months of the year. Across the whole year the town only records, on average, 300 to 350 mm of precipitation, with pretty much all of this falls outside of summer. When it does rain, it often pours- with short but heavy downpours. The down pours and temperatures take a turn for the worst when the ‘Gota Fria’, a Spanish weather phenomenon comes through the region bringing with it a sudden drop in the mercury and heavy frequent downpours which have been known to cause flooding in the past.
Across the year the weather is generally pleasant, with an average annual temperature of 18 ºC. Summers can get particularly hot- days over 40 ºC are not uncommon. However the winds that blow of the Med come as a relief and cause temperatures to drop a few ºC in the evenings. The average high in July and August, the warmest months, is 24 ºC, though the sea temperatures sit close to 20 ºC so provides for a very welcoming environment to cool off in from the day’s heat. In addition to this, La Manga and its surrounding area has more than 40km of blue flag awarded beaches- which means you’ve got plenty of choice when it comes to clean and award winning beaches.
Winters are short, however they come on quite quickly. October still sees average daily highs of 24 ºC, though by November the average high has dropped to 18 ºC and December to February bring daily highs of 15 ºC and lows can reach a chilly 4 ºC, with nighttimes getting especially cold- so be sure to pack a light jumper if you’re planning on enjoying some sangria on the promenades at nighttime.
