Subtropical-Meditarranean weather with very mild winters and hot summers.
Málaga enjoys plenty of sunshine throughout the year, with an average of about 300 days of sunshine and only about 50 days with precipitation annually. Its coastal location with winds blowing from the Mediterranean Sea make the heat manageable during the summer (although, you will know what is what we called “el terral”).
