Benidorm Weather and Temperatures
The Benidorm weather is one of the things that make Benidorm such a great holiday destination and the ideal home for those seeking a new life in Spain. Where else can you enjoy year round the perfect weather, sun, a healthy climate and a great lifestyle?
The Current Weather in Benidorm and at the Costa Blanca
Spain is such a vast country that we cannot talk about the climate or weather in Benidorm as a whole, because each region has its own climatic characteristics. The Costa Blanca area of Spain is known for its superb climate – a subtropical, Mediterranean climate that the World Health Organization has actually recommended as being one of the best climates in the world. This climate is characterized by pleasantly hot summers, with low humidity, and lovely mild, dry winters. In fact, the Costa Blanca climate can be described as simply warm and sunny all year round! This is an ideal climate for sufferers of conditions like allergies, asthma, arthritis, rheumatism and other illnesses which are exacerbated by damp, cold weather.
Costa Blanca Average Temperatures
Costa Blanca average temperatures are obviously warmer than average temperatures in Spain because the Costa Blanca is a coastal area and is on the Mediterranean.
According to weather.com, average temperatures for the Costa Blanca are:
- January 16ºC
- February 17ºC
- March 19ºC
- April 21ºC
- May 24ºC
- June 27ºC
- July 31ºC
- August 32ºC
- September 28ºC
- October 25ºC
- November 19ºC
- December 17ºC
As you can see, May to October are the months with the best average temperatures and this is the reason why the Costa Blanca is so popular at this time of year. Remember that these temperatures are average temperatures and that August temperatures can reach as high as a very hot 40ºC! However, if you are in a coastal resort, you will have a lovely sea breeze to cool you down. If you really don’t like the heat, visit the Costa Blanca in early Spring, Autumn or Winter when you still get the lovely Spanish sun and warm temperatures.
Benidorm not only has the benefit of the wonderful Costa Blanca climate, it also has its own fantastic micro-climate. Benidorm’s micro-climate is made possible by the Aitana, Sierra Helada and Tossal de Cala mountains, which surround it and protect it from any harsh weather.
The Benidorm temperature ranges from average lows of 6ºC in January to average high temperatures of 27ºC in August, with a year round Benidorm average temperatures being 19.3ºC. You can even sunbathe in the depths of winter and don’t forget to apply sun-cream even in January, the sun is deceptively strong!
Benidorm has around 325 days of sunshine per year or about 3,400 hours of sunshine per year. You can expect at least twelve hours of sun on summer days and at least 6 hours of sunshine per day in the middle of winter. This is all great news for people who suffer from SAD, Seasonal Affected Depression, people who enjoy outdoor sports, like golf and tennis, or those wanting to get away from the miserable, dark winters of Northern Europe.
As far as rain is concerned, Benidorm has a much lower rainfall than cities and resorts in the UK and Northern Europe. Average rainfall ranges from 27mm in July to a high of 86mm in October. The great thing about the resorts of the Costa Blanca is that the rain never lasts long and the sun always seems to win the day, unlike the UK where rain seems to follow rain!
