Best time to take a vacation to Costa del Sol

The abundance of sunshine makes any destinations along the Costa del Sol into an amazing holiday. The average temperature in the winter rarely dips below the mid-teens, but the summer temperatures in July and August can easily reach beyond 32ºC. The best time to visit the coast is between April and early June and between September and mid-October when the temperatures are still warm. In addition to the great weather at these times of year, you will find open hotels and restaurants with a much smaller crowd than you'd find in summer. The Costa del Sol Summer Ferias begin in late May, so target those dates when planning your trip. Reserve your rooms on ebookers in advance to get a great room with a view of the Mediterranean and beaches.
