Over the region as a whole, daytime temperatures typically reach a maximum of 36°C, and the temperature typically falls to 20°C (68°F) overnight. Near the Mediterranean coastline, daytime temperatures are often a little lower thanks to cooling sea breezes, although the temperatures often stay above 20°C (68°F) overnight. Sea temperatures in August are a warm 24°C (74°F), so be sure to pack your swimming gear.

Most Augusts are completely free from rain, although heavy convective storms do occur on rare occasions, mainly away from the Mediterranean coastline, resulting in a regional average of about 5mm of rain per August. There are typically 11 hours of bright sunshine per day.

Things to Do

Summer Festivals

Summer festivals are held in most towns and cities across Andalucia during the summer months. In particular, numerous festivals are held in the province of Cadiz on the Costa de la Luz. The Veleda Patronal En honour De La Oliva is held at Vejer de la Frontera and features various cultural activities, including one night with a flamenco festival. Races are held along the beach, and the Fiestas Mayores de Grazalema features games and races during the day and then live music overnight.

There are numerous museums and mansions including the Casa de las Cadenas, which is an impressive 16th century building.
