climate and weather in Axarquía

The Costa del Sol is the coast of sun, what also proves true with round 320 sunny days per year.

The east of Málaga being part of Andalusia is called the Axarquía. It is in front of Morocco / Africa, from where also comes the always warm air. In the North the high Sierra Nevada (the most popular skiing area of Spain from October until May) keeps the cold north wind away from the Axarquía.

This region has the best climate of Europe. Not only the fans of sun, but also especially the people with breathing problems and articular rheumatism know to appreciate this climate. Inspite of temporary relatively quite high temperatures in summer the climate of the Axarquía always is pleasant. The humidity is low and always blows a slight breeze. The winter is pleasant with 15° C average.
