Marbella Weather: What to Expect Year-Round

Discover the Climate of Marbella

At 3SA Estates, our mission is to ensure you are always three steps ahead, especially when it comes to enjoying the beautiful weather of Marbella. Whether you are considering a move, planning a vacation, or investing in property, understanding Marbella’s climate is essential. Known for its sunny days and mild winters, Marbella offers a unique climate that attracts people from all over the world. Here’s a detailed look at what to expect throughout the year.

Year-Round Sunshine and Mild Winters

Marbella is blessed with over 320 days of sunshine annually, making it one of the sunniest places in Europe. Summers are warm and dry, with temperatures averaging around 30°C (86°F) in July and August. Despite the heat, the coastal breeze provides a pleasant respite, making it perfect for beach days and outdoor activities. Winters are mild, with average temperatures hovering around 17°C (63°F) in January. This pleasant weather allows for year-round enjoyment of outdoor pursuits, from golfing to hiking.

Spring and Autumn: The Ideal Times to Visit

Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are often considered the best times to experience Marbella. During these seasons, temperatures range from 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F), providing ideal conditions for exploring the beautiful surroundings, from the Sierra Blanca mountains to the historic Old Town. These periods also see fewer tourists, offering a more relaxed and authentic experience of the city.

Rainfall and Humidity

Marbella experiences its rainy season from November to March, but even then, the rainfall is moderate. The city receives approximately 500 mm (20 inches) of rain annually, with November being the wettest month. Humidity levels are generally comfortable year-round, although they can rise slightly during the summer months.

Microclimates and Unique Weather Patterns

One of the unique aspects of Marbella’s climate is its microclimates. Thanks to the surrounding mountains and its coastal location, different parts of Marbella can experience slightly varied weather conditions. For instance, the area closer to the sea often enjoys a cooling effect from the Mediterranean, while the inland areas can be slightly warmer.


Marbella’s enviable weather is one of its biggest draws, offering a perfect blend of sunshine, mild temperatures, and minimal rainfall. Whether you’re planning a short visit or considering making Marbella your home, you’ll find the climate here conducive to a high-quality, outdoor-oriented lifestyle. With 3SA Estates, you can be assured of finding the perfect property to enjoy all that this beautiful region has to offer.
