Benidorm has an exceptionally sunny Mediterranean climate with long, hot summers and mild winters.

The resort enjoys a microclimate of slightly higher temperatures and much clearer skies due to its surrounding mountains.

Benidorm receives 325 days of sunshine per year; this has contributed immeasurably to the outstanding popularity of Benidorm as a tourist destination.

Summer Weather in Benidorm

From May till October, Benidorm sees average high temperatures moving through the 20s to a peak of 30°C in August. Nighttime temperatures are cool in the fringes of the season but in July and August the average low temperature can stay up around 20°C.

This level of heat might be uncomfortable but throughout the summer humidity levels are low and constant sea breezes help to keep conditions bearable.

Is The Sea Warm In Benidorm In Summer?

The sea is too cool, around 17°C, in May for prolonged swimming but quickly hurdles the 20°C mark, getting up to a peak of 25°C in August and stays warm for the rest of the season.

 July is the sunniest month with an average of eleven hours of sunshine per day.

Rainfall is minimal for most of the season, apart from the odd shower. Rain increases towards the end and October, which is actually the wettest month in the year.

Autumn Weather in Benidorm

Autumn is a  brief and rapidly changing affair in November which can be hot at first but mild later.

The average high temperature of 19°C and an average low of 10°C means it is regularly warm, in the low 20s, at the beginning of the month and mild, around 18°C at the end of the month during the daytime, but nighttimes are generally quite chilly.

Can You Swim In The Sea In Benidorm In Autumn?

The sea is cool but warm enough for water sports and quick dips. So if you want the sun in November, make sure you go at the start of the month or in late October.  

 Rain falls in light showers on around ten days in the month. Sunshine levels are good for the season at six hours per day.

It is not uncommon for sudden changes in the weather that brings on unseasonably warm, summer-like temperatures, or drops in the heat, bringing cold fronts and winter-like weather.

Winter Weather in Benidorm

December till February, is mild to cool and quite unpredictable. The average high temperature gets down to 15°C in January while the average low temperature is around 6°C for the whole season.

Whileday time temperatures are vastly preferable to those in the UK , blustery weather can make it feel quite cold and visitors should not expect to stretch out on the beach in their swimwear.

Night times can be very chilly and it can even get down to freezing. Sunshine levels remain the same and water temperatures drop to 14°C in January.

Spring Weather in Benidorm

Spring in March and April is mild with nippy nights. The average high temperature creeps back up to 18°C in March and 19°C in April.

From the beginning of the season temperatures in the low 20s can be seen on calm days with clear skies. Seven hours of sunshine per day in March climbs to eight in April but the sea remains cool.

The spring climate is similar to that of the autumn; it can be temperamental, with anything from summer warmth to much colder fronts.

 For the most part, the Mediterranean climate ensures the weather remains pleasant throughout the season. However, as with in autumn, if you're planning on visiting Benidorm in the spring,  pack layers of clothes, so you're prepared for the unpredictable weather.

Benidorm is protected from the cold, northerly Levante winds by the mountains that rise behind it. These keep the south-facing resort warmer, drier and sunnier than unprotected areas.

The Mediterranean Sea helps to moderate temperatures throughout the season, preventing extreme temperatures. Locals are accustomed to the Gota Fria, a phenomenon whereby the temperature suddenly drops, the wind reaches gale force and torrential rain starts to fall.

These spells of bad weather are unpredictable but usually brief. 

Unusual Weather In Benidorm

Given Benidorm's proximity to North Africa, it's no wonder that it is subject to dust storms, as a result of the winds that blow across the Sahara. These tend to occur most frequently in the winter and early spring months and can seriously reduce visibility.

They tend to affect anyone who has asthma or respiratory problems, so keep your medication on you at all times if you choose this time of the year to visit the area.

With the exception of Portugal, Spain experiences the worst forest fires of all the Mediterranean countries. These tend to occur between the months of July and September and have been exacerbated recently with the dry weather in Spain. 

Around 40% of these fires are started deliberately, 20% by mistake or accident and 2-3% by lightning.

In June 2019 there was a forest fire precariously near to the Aqualandia Water Park Attraction. Planes dropped water bombs onto the Inferno to quell the flames.

Then a month later a nearby fire in the Alicante forest was so ferocious that the smoke reached Benidorm, which was only 4.5km away.
