Averages for Murcia in May
Summer starts in May and beachgoers will be glad to hear this! It means that the waters of the Mediterranean Sea are finally warm enough for swimming and the average sea temperature is 62.6°F (17°C).This opens up a whole world of new activities in the area. The sea offers sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, kite boarding, power boating, and scuba diving. With tourist numbers still down, May is the perfect opportunity to experience these activities.
Interestingly, the region has a unique feature. Its beach is a narrow strip of land which actually has a beach on each side, boasting twice as much sand as one would expect, making even more room for tourists to claim a stretch of beach, even if just for a day.
