Costa Tropical Climate
Known locally as the Costa Tropical de Granada the coastal strip around Salobrena enjoys a true microclimate due to the proximity of mainland Spain's highest mountains. The peaks of the Sierra Nevada effectively shield our coast from the excessive summer heat and winter cold experienced in inland Andalucia eg Granada, Seville & Cordoba where winter temperatures are often 8/10 degrees centigrade cooler and summer temperatures up to 10 degrees hotter. Average mid-summer temperature is around 27/28ºC often with a gentle sea breeze and between October and March we have sunny days with clear blue skies most of the time and average temperatures of around 17/18ºC. Here on the Costa Tropical it is warmer in winter than anywhere else in mainland Europe and cooler in summer than anywhere else along the south coast of Spain. It is not just the temperature in winter that is better but here we also experience plenty of sunny winter days when just along the coast in Malaga province it is raining! Humidity is usually quite low all year round.
Most people who have lived here for a while would agree that the exceptional climate is one of the major factors contributing to their quality of life.
