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.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
