The general picture

Big place Spain, and the climate reflects that fact. The weather varies from mild European in the North, to something decidely Saharan in the South.

To a certain extent the image of Spain as perpetually sun drenched is ok, but it is not strictly correct. The central east coast come closes to the image. It has a Mediterranean weather with sun almost every day of the year, little rain and an average 30º C temperature.


On the Mediterranean coast, the climate is moderate with rain in spring and autumn. Murcia has an almost African climate and is characterized by numerous palm trees. Rainfall is low and the calina, or heat haze, is common during summer.

On the Atlantic coast, the summers are cooler and fairly heavy rainfall occurs during winter. Inland, the summers are hot and the rainfall decreases.

The Balearic Islands have a maritime climate, with cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers.

The Canary Islands have an even warmer climate. The coastal areas are fairly mild, but the interior, especially in arid areas of Tenerife, can get very hot during the day with cold nights. Mount Teide is often snowcapped in winter and the vast majority of rain falls in winter.
