Weather in Lara Beach
The weather in Lara Beach is warm and pleasant all year, just as you would expect for a Mediterranean climate. However, some months are more pleasant than others due to the rainfall amounts. It is best for travellers on holiday to prepare for rainy days if booking a visit during the wet season. While the days are still warm and balmy, the rainfall begins to pick up around October, and increases steadily until late February.
Many well-seasoned travellers advise that the perfect months to visit Lara Beach are May and June. They agree that this is when the weather, sunlight and water temperature are at their most comfortable. This means you should take the necessary steps to secure a flight or book passage on a cruise well in advance.
July and August are good for beach goers too, but the humidity blended with the high temperatures can cause some to feel a bit uncomfortable elsewhere out of the water. The daytime highs can reach up to 34°C/93°F and some may consider this excessive.
If you plan to spend all of your days along the coast, soaking up the sunshine, perhaps this may work to your advantage.
By September, however, the rainfall amounts begin to pick up and although the days are still hot, this can limit activity to indoors, rather than the beaches.
Typically, the Mediterranean winters are the coolest and wettest times of the year in the area. however, the weather does remain mild and pleasant and preferable to the much cooler and wetter UK winter time.
Winters in Lara Beach are typically short, beginning in December and ending in February. Though the beach will be out of bounds at this time, tourists can still expect warm weather and plenty of sunshine, making their time here enjoyable.
Spring time sees the temperatures rise considerably in Lara Beach. The sun shines for longer each day and there is less wet weather than in the winter. Many tourists, for whom the beach isn’t the top priority, prefer to travel at this time of the year, as they can enjoy the warmer weather, without the crowds of tourists that flock to Lara Beach for the summer months. The temperatures are slightly lower than in the summer, so if you’re not used to the intense heat, the spring is the ideal time to go.
The Mediterranean climate can still be temperamental at this time of the year though, so it’s not uncommon to experience summer like heat or unseasonably cool days.
Summer in the Mediterranean is also the peak tourism season. From May to September, the average temperature is 31°C/87°F and the average rainfall amounts are only 6 millimetres.

With the sea a warm temperature, it’s also the ideal time to try out the variety of water sports on offer. The heat at this time can be uncomfortable for those who are not used to it.
Much like the spring, autumn in the Mediterranean sees a slight drop in temperatures after the scorching summer, with an increase in wet weather. In October, the temperatures drop from 31°C/87°F down to 27°C/80°F. In November, the average is 22°C/71°F. However, it remains warm and pleasant and is often thought to be the preferable time to visit, as tourists can enjoy the warm weather without so many tourists in the area.
As in the spring, the weather at this time of the year can still be changeable, so unseasonably warm or cool days can be experienced.
