Denia enjoys a Mediterranean climate of long, hot summers with little rain and mild, slightly rainy winters. Denia is in the Alicante region of Spain on the Costa Blanca. The resort is protected from the northerly levante winds by Montgo Mountain which rises behind it. This means it receives sunnier, drier and warmer weather than might be expected at this latitude. It also benefits from the moderating effects of the Mediterranean Sea which encourage mild conditions.
Summer, from June till September, provides endless heat and sun. The average high temperature sits at 27°C in June and September, peaking in July and August at 29°C. This means it can get into the mid 30s, especially if the sirocco wind blows up from Africa, bringing with it uncomfortable temperatures, aridity and sometimes sand. The average low temperature of the peak months sits around 20°C but in the fringe months night times cool quite pleasantly. Low humidity and a sea breeze help to keep the weather conditions pleasant, but some may find the heat of July and August excessive.
The sun shines almost non-stop. July is the sunniest month with eleven hours of sunshine per day but even September, which is the least sunny of the summer months, receives eight. Rainfall is very low but a few brief storms may occur; these increase in September. The water temperature is perfect for swimming for the entire season, peaking in August at 26°C.
Autumn, in October and November, is initially idyllic but soon turns disagreeable. October is a great time to visit to avoid the heat of the summer and the worst of the tourist crowds. The average high temperature gets down to 23°C so at the beginning of the month mid 20°C temperatures are still common. October nights are cool, around 13°C, but the sea stays warm enough for swimming, sunshine remains reliable at seven hours per day, and rainfall remains low. However, temperatures fall below the coveted 20°C mark in November, reaching an average high of 18°C and an average low of 8°C which requires a thick jacket. November is the wettest month in the year and is generally quite unpredictable. Rainfall jumps to 83mm for the month, falling in a few very heavy storms. Sunshine levels drop that little bit more down to six hours per day.
Winter, from December till February, is mild and changeable. The average high temperature stays in the mid teens for the whole season, getting to its lowest in January at 14°C. The average low gets down to 5°C in December and February, bottoming at 4°C in January. While this is nowhere near as cold as winter in the UK, it cannot be considered a âwinter sunâ destination. You will still need a few layers and a coat if visiting in winter. It can get down to freezing and away from the coast frosts can develop. Snow sometimes dusts the mountain. Rainfall is lower than in autumn but showers can be expected on around five days a month.
Spring, from March till May, quickly becomes pleasant. The average high temperature reaches 18°C in March, 19°C in April and 23°C in May. Night times remain cool, under 10°C, and the sea does not quite warm up enough for swimming till the end of the season. The sun steadily returns and rainfall levels stay moderate. This is another fantastic time to visit the resort if you arenât after the scorching heat of the summer.
