The climate of Benidorm (Spain)
For many Benidorm is the symbol of mass tourism. The skyline is often
compared to that of Manhattan or Dubai because of the many high
buildings. If you come from the north via the AP-7 highway the city
suddenly appears to your left. It is no coincidence Benidorm was
founded on this spot. The climate here is seen as one of the best in
Europe. The weather is pleasant almost all year round. This is caused
by its unique location between the mountains and the Mediterranean
Sea. During the winter the weather is spring-like with temperatures
around 20 degrees Celsius (68.0 degrees Fahrenheit) and many hours of
sunshine. Towards the summer daytime temperatures rapidly rise to
30-31 degrees Celsius (86.0-87.8 degrees Fahrenheit). In the city it
remains warm during the evening to drop to the minimum late at night.
Unfortunately, exhaust fumes also remain hanging in the city which is
not beneficial for the healthy air in the surroundings of the city.
Spending the winter months in Benidorm
Really bad weather is uncommon in Benidorm. However, during the winter
rain and wind are not uncommon, but this is often short lived. During
spring and especially during fall heavy (thunder) storms are not
uncommon. During most days temperatures are pleasant and the sun
shines for many hours. This is the main reason why so many people
spend their winter in Benidorm. Most people who stay here during the
winter are elderly. This is why Benidorm is also known as the nursing
home for the elderly of Spain.
