Estepona Weather June Averages, Spain
What's the weather like in Estepona in June
June marks the beginning of a beautiful Spanish summer here on the Costa del Sol. The average temperature is a superb 20°C (68°F), the perfect mild opening for a hot season on the Estepona coastline. Nights are warmer at an increased 17°C, and the higher end is expected to reach 23°C on average. With humidity being quite low at 65%, June can offer is a full month of pleasant heat and glorious sunshine.
The days are beautifully long, reaching up to 13 hours of sunshine, and chances of full-on sunny days explode at 60% on average. Chances of clouds are insignificant at 2% and chances of rain are nearly non-existent at just 7% on average.
Rainfall will barely produce 4mm of precipitation, spread over a total of 3 days, so your worst case scenario for bad weather in June here is a 3-minute shower. Other than that, you might just want to start stocking up on the sun protection lotion, because the radiation will begin to make its presence felt towards the third and fourth week of the month, closer to July in fact, it may be worth checking the forecast to keep an eye on UV levels.
As the mountain winds die down with barely whisper here and there, you'll notice an increase in the warm and dry winds of the south coming from the Mediterranean Sea and its North-African edges. Chances of windy days stay up at 53% on average, but the wind speeds dial it down to 1.5m/s, thus signalling the beginning of a very calm and breezy summer.
The superb and deep blue sea raises its temperature to 20°C (69°F), now close to perfect for both shallow and deep water swimming and snorkelling. Windsurfing will require going further up the coast for slightly choppier water, but you can still enjoy jet-skis and paddle boards while you're out at sea in Estepona.

Estepona Beaches in June
Playa Costa Natura
A good spot to enjoy in June is Playa Costa Natura. It flows further on from Arroyo Vanqueros, and it faces the naturist Costa Natura resort, which is normally for members only. You can score a temporary pass if you're generally uninhibited and don't mind the very first purpose-built naturist resort in Spain. The beach itself stretches over 400m of fine sand and is open to the public, complete with a little kiosk for all your refreshment needs.
Unravelling around the Guadalabon River and fronted by the promenade and gardens of Gran Hotel Elba and H10 Palace Hotel, Playa Guadalabon is a superb beach to enjoy, from sunbathing sessions to deep water swimming and even some water sports.
Bars and Restaurant
11 y 11 Restobar
11 y 11 Restobar offers live music and delicious authentic Spanish food. The menu is enriched with delicious and locally sourced seafood, as well as salad and meat dishes. It can be found in the charming port of Estepona, giving you wonderful views of the Mediterranean Sea to enjoy with your lunch or dinner.
If you've chosen to stay at the marvellous Kempinski resort, you might as well make your way down to Camuri, a Polinesian style beachfront venue in the heart of the Laguna Village on the new Golden Mile.
The two Spanish brothers owning the venue have put years of restaurant experience into providing outstanding food and service through this absolutely delightful restaurant. Fish dishes (Cazuela, Merluza) are one of its many specialties, and the dish presentation and marine views make Camuri one of the best places to try while in Estepona.
Bar Caleu on Calle Real is right next to the popular Tolone and is split into two structures. On one hand you have the lounge & cocktail bar with sophisticated drinks and top notch service, and on the other hand you have the American/Irish themed bar, more casual and liked by tourists. Both are equally fun, though!
Things to do in Estepona in June
Boat Tours and Snorkelling
A great way to get the best out of what June has to offer on the Costa del Sol from Estepona and all around is by taking a boat tour or boat rental. It's based in Marbella and offers hourly, half and full day charters on board a sleek Monterey 262 Cruiser to cut across the clear blue waters. Plan your own day and don't miss out on the snorkelling, swimming and dolphin-watching opportunities along the way, if relaxing on board and sipping on a cocktail while getting a tan is not everything you'd want out of a cruise.
Early summer is great for climbing rocks and mountains without the ensuing fatigue normally felt throughout July and August, when the temperatures are considerably higher. The surrounding areas of Estepona are perfect for mountaineering and rock climbing, and now popular throughout the world for their excellent geography and conditions.
El Chorro Gorge
2.5 miles long and down to 1,300ft deep the El Chorro Gorge is certainly a great challenge. In some places it's only 30ft wide, and it literally cuts through Andalusia's tableau of forest-covered hills and mountains. There are many routes available to choose from (some with funny names like "The Policeman Stole My Walkman"), so you're bound to get sucked into the thrill of conquering some of these rock giants of Spain.
Pub Flamenco Albero y Arte
In order to get a taste of the local spirit, you certainly have to go see a Spanish flamenco dance. Though not easy to find, Pub Flamenco Albero y Arte is well worth the effort, as it's located in Calle Vicente Blasco Ibanez in Marbella. It's a charming venue, frequented by bohemians and artists, and features traditional and fiery flamenco shows which are not to be missed.
