Holiday season in Malaga

The region around Malaga is popular throughout the year.

It is advisable to travel during spring and autumn to avoid summer heat and more unpredictable winter weather. Peak holiday times can be crowded. It is also advisable to avoid school holidays. Winters on the Costa del Sol are mild but can also be surprisingly cold and wet. Inland will be hotter during the summer, when a sea breeze can make the heat more bearable on the coast. Swimming in the Mediterranean is pleasant from May until October - winter temperatures can be unpleasantly cool. Those planning a beach holiday out of season could head for the Atlantic beaches around Tarifa for warmer temperatures, but watch out: high winds and sea fog may ruin your plans.
