Weather Overview for torremolinos
Torremolinos is a Spanish holiday resort located within the Costa del Sol on the Mediterranean coast, just west of Malaga. It started out as a quiet fishing village, but in the late 1950s, became one of the first resorts on the Costa del Sol to be developed specifically for tourists, with hotels, bars, restaurants and shops being built all over the place. The clean sandy beaches, vibrant nightlife and warm sunny weather is what attracts most Europeans to the holiday resort. But not only is Torremolinos a popular place for Europeans to spend a week or two, it’s also a popular place to migrate to, with a huge number of British and Irish expats living there.
Torremolinos enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot dry summers followed by mild wet winters. Although the winters are wet compared to the dry summer season, the resort is still very dry compared to most of northern Europe, making it a great place to go to catch some winter sun. Thanks to its extreme southerly location, Torremolinos remains relatively warm throughout the year. Temperatures typically vary between 8°C and 31°C across the seasons, rarely dropping below 4°C or rising above 35°C. In addition to the resort’s southerly location, one of the major reasons behind this temperate climate is the mountain range found north of the resort. This mountain range protects Torremolinos from a lot of rainfall and the cool northern winds which affect many other regions of Spain.

Summer – June, July, August and September – is the most popular time to visit Torremolinos, when the weather is dry, hot and sunny. The average temperature at this time of year is 23°C, with August being the hottest month of the season, when average temperature peaks at 26°C. There is a huge difference between the daytime and evening temperatures during this season. Average highs range between 31°C and 28°C, whilst average lows range between 21°C and 17°C. So although some travellers might find these average highs a bit stifling, the evenings will bring some much welcome relief for everyone.
As you’d expect for a holiday resort in Spain, Torremolinos is subject to hardly any rainfall at all during the summer season. August is the driest month of summer, when not even a drop of precipitation falls on average. August sees a meagre 2mm of rainfall, whilst June seas a slightly damper 6mm. By September, the summer season is transitioning into autumn and the rainfall spikes up to 38mm, spread over an average of five days. In the unlikely event that you do get some rainfall during your summer holiday in Torremolinos, it will most likely be in the form of a thunderstorm. However, the odds are in favour of a dry holiday so much that you shouldn’t let it put you off.
Summer is the sunniest season of the year for Torremolinos, when the resort enjoys an average of 12.5 daily sunshine hours. With 14 hours of sunshine each day, July is the sunniest month of the year, whilst with only ten hours of sunshine each day, September is the least sunny month of the season. Despite the big difference between sunshine hours, you’ll always have plenty of opportunities to sunbathe during your summer holiday in Torremolinos.

In November, the average temperature drops down to 15.5°C, created by average highs of 20°C and average lows of 11°C. Temperatures during the daytime in this season are much more bearable, making it a better time to go for holidaymakers who can’t stand the heat.
As the temperatures drop, the amount of rainfall increases. In October, Torremolinos is subject to an average of 42mm of precipitation which falls on nine wet days. November is much wetter, when an average of 88mm falls over the course of eight wet days. With more than ¼ of days across this season being affected by rainfall, there is a fairly good chance you’ll get a rainy day or two if you visit at this time of year, so be prepared. The most common type of precipitation you can expect to get in Torremolinos in autumn is moderate rain showers, which are sometimes preceded by thunderstorms.
Thankfully, autumn is still very sunny for the resort, so after the rain storm stops, the sun will never be far behind. In October, the resort enjoys an average of nine daily hours of sunshine, whilst November enjoys eight hours.
Sea water temperatures higher than 18°C are generally considered warm enough for swimming in. So if you visit Torremolinos in October, you’ll get to swim in a warm 21°C sea. However, in November, the average sea water temperature drops down to 18°C, which some visitors might find a bit on the cool side for swimming.

After summer, winter is the most popular time of year to visit Torremolinos, when Brits hit the resort in search of some warm winter sunshine. During this season – which is classed as December, January and February – the average temperature is a cool 12°C. Daily highs in the warmest part of the day range between 18°C and 15°C, whilst daily lows in the coolest part of the night fall between 9°C and 7°C. Winter is a fairly windy season, when strong winds often blow over the top of the northern mountain range and descend on the resort. When they do, these winds can often make temperatures feel even cooler than they already are, so be prepared.
Although you might get a few hours each day when the weather is warm enough to sunbathe, the evenings will always get very cold, so make sure you pack some winter warmers to keep comfortable. On average, January is the coldest month of the season, so try and avoid it if you want warm beach weather during your holiday.
As you’d expect for this time of year, winter is the wettest season for Torremolinos. December is the wettest month when 100mm of precipitation falls over the course of 12 wet days. After this month, the amount of rainfall drops significantly down to 61mm over nine days in January and 49mm over seven days in February. Moderate rain is the most common form of precipitation you can expect at this time of year, but thunderstorms also frequently occur.
Despite the fairly intense rainfall, the resort still enjoys a lot of sunshine during this season. On average, the sun shines for seven hours each day at this time of year. So even though you’re bound to get a few cloudy spells in Torremolinos in winter, you’ll never get entirely overcast days when the sun doesn’t shine at all.

Following on from a cool, wet winter, the resort warms and dries up significantly as the spring season develops. Across March, April and May, the average temperature for Torremolinos is 17°C, which increases as the weeks progress. Daily averages range between 20°C and 24°C, whilst daily lows range between 10°C and 13°C. With such a huge difference in temperature between the hottest part of the day and the coldest part of the night, you’ll need to take a good selection of beachwear and winter warmers with you to make sure you stay comfortable whatever the weather.
The start of the season sees a spike in rainfall – up to 61mm over seven days in March – but from then on out the precipitation decreases each month, down to 36mm in April over seven wet days and down again to just 12mm over seven wet days in May. The most common type of precipitation to fall at this time of year is moderate rain storms, which usually start out with short thunderstorms. With rain falling on an average of one week each month, there is a very good chance you’ll get a wet spell or two during your holiday in Torremolinos. However, with such a small amount of precipitation falling during this season, this shouldn’t put you off visiting the resort in spring because the rain will rarely last more than a couple of hours.
As the spring season slowly blends into summer, the number of daily sunshine hours increases. March sees nine hours, April sees ten and May sees 12, so whichever month you choose to visit, you’ll have plenty of time to lie by the pool and work on your tan. In fact, with a cool average sea temperature of just 17°C (which is generally considered too cold for swimming) you will be better off staying by the pool instead of hitting the beach. If you don’t mind cool temperatures, you might just find the sea warm enough for swimming in May, when the average sea temperature for the resort is 18°C.
