What's the weather like in Malaga in June

June is usually a hot dry sunny month in Malaga. The tempering effects of the Mediterranean Sea tend to restrict the intensity of the daytime heat and prevent the showers and thunderstorms that sometimes develop inland from reaching the Costa del Sol.

Temperature

The average daytime maximum temperature is 27°C and an average overnight minimum is 17°C. Sea fog becomes increasingly rare at this time of year in spite of the sea breezes. On rare occasions an import of hot air from northern Africa, combined with winds from the northern half of the compass, can result in significant heatwaves, with temperatures into the mid to high 30s Celsius, though not as hot as inland.

Rain

An average June has just 12mm of precipitation and 2 days with measurable precipitation, and on the very rare occasions that it does rain, the rain is usually heavy, thundery and over with very quickly, so should not cause significant disturbance to a holiday. Many Junes pass by without any precipitation at all.

Average Sunshine Hours

The lack of rain is also accompanied by reliably high amounts of sunshine with a mean total of 302 hours, a mean of 10.1 hours per day.

Humidity

The average relative humidity is low at this time of year with a mean of 59%, and in addition, the humidity levels tend to be lowest when the weather is particularly hot, so hot weather combined with high humidity is very unusual at Malaga.

Average Sea Temperature

The average sea temperature lags the warming trend over the land and averages just 20°C, which is swimmable but rather cool. However, note that some of the shallower stretches of sea close to the coastline are rather warmer than that and offer good swimming conditions at this time of year.

Malaga Hotels in June

Malaga has numerous good hotels, although it is important to choose wisely as there are some unreliable ones which receive mixed reviews. One of the most reliable beach hotels is the Salles Hotel Malaga Centro at Calle Marmoles 6, 29007, which offers 4-star accommodation. The Hotel MS Maestranza at Avda.

Canovas del Castillo 1, 29016 has rooms overlooking the Malaga bullring and is well placed for many of the main Malaga attractions and also has spa and jacuzzi facilities. A good budget romantic retreat is the 2-star Los Jarales Rural Hotel Istan at Marbella-Istan km 14, Istan, 29611, which is close to the village of Istan.

There are a few reasonable guest houses in Malaga including the Villa Alicia Guest House at C/ Conde de Urena 12, 29012. Malaga also has many good camping resorts nearby, including the Camping Torremolinos site, just 2km from Torremolinos and 7km away from Malaga.

Malaga Beach for June

June is quite a good time of year to hit the beach, as the weather tends to be reliable but tourist numbers are usually down on those in July and August. A good nearby Blue Flag beach is the Calahonda Beach, which contains a wooden jetty which is ideal for fishing and diving, and there are some beach bars nearby along the more developed stretches. Fans of fishing and scuba diving will be well-served by the El Palo beach.

Bars and Restaurants

There are many high-quality restaurants in Malaga. Those who would like to try Moroccan cuisine can try out the Restaurante Al-Yamal at Blasco de Garay, 7, 29001. Las Albarizas at Calle Los Perros, 29620, at nearby Torremolinos, serves good local cuisine and is good for special occasion dining and romantic occasions.

La Tortuga at the sea front at Pedregalejo serves as a cafe during the day and then offers cocktails and live music during evenings and overnight. Liceo at Calle Beatas 21 is popular with students and features loud house music, sat in an old mansion which also contains three bars.

Things to do in Malaga in June

June is quite a good time of year to sample some of Malaga's parks and gardens. The Parque de Malaga, located at el Paseo Príncipe de España, la Plaza de la Marina y la Plaza General Torrijos, is a carefully-landscaped park and features curving pathways, and numerous fountains, one of the most spectacular of these being the Swan Fountain in the Waterfall Garden. There are also many statues and kiosks within the grounds of the park. Also worth checking out are the Pedro Luiz Alonso Gardens at CL Roma 1, 29016 Malaga. These were laid out in 1945 and features gardens of Hispanic-Muslim and French style, with bushes, ponds and fountains, and a large number of birds.

Fans of water sports and other activities can try Xtraventura, at Calle Casas de Campos, which provides a wide range of activities. There are two kayaking trips offered, of 2 to 2.5 hours' duration, one through Carvajal Beach and one through La Cala del Moral - Rincón de la Victoria Beach.

Romería de El Rocío 

4th June 2018 to 5th June 2018

Malaga is one of the 20 starting points for the Romería de El Rocío, a famous pilgrimage 50 days after Easter. Held in province of Huelva (305 km from Malaga), thousands meet at the Paloma Blanca Shrine in the village of El Rocío. Pilgrims come in flamenco attire on horseback, by carriage or on foot. On the Saturday, they present their simpecado (ox-drawn float) to the Virgin as the bells toll. Sunday sees “jumping the fence”, when people jump over the fence around the shrine to bring out the statue of the Virgin and parade it around the village. Then, people come together at night for “casetas” with live entertainment and gastronomy into the early hours.

Night of Saint John (Saint John's Eve)

23rd June 2018

Celebrated with bonfires and grilling sardines on the beach, the Night of San Juan in Malaga is an exciting, magical night. The beaches of La Malagueta, El Palo, San Andrés, Sacaba and El Dedo will have thousands of celebrators jumping over bonfires by the coast at the stroke of midnight, and then diving into the waters according to traditions. And then, fireworks. Old stuff are burned, like ragdolls representing national figures, old notebooks, books, and old furniture, to signify the end of the past and welcoming the new - like the start of summer. Concerts and parties entertain till dawn. At the Parque del Oeste, the main celebrations with musical numbers and traditional dances take place. The morning after is the actual feast day of San Juan.
