With over 300 days of sunshine a year and a south-facing bay, Benidorm is a brilliant winter sun destination. Holidaymakers can expect average year-round temperatures of 19ºC, thanks to a unique microclimate caused by a trio of surrounding mountains that protect the town from cold fronts and the majority of rain showers.
Life in Benidorm is devoted to tourism throughout the entire year. Not many people will want to brave a dip in the sea during the cooler months, but rest assured, you can practice sailing and kayaking all year round or explore beyond the beach. In fact, many believe winter is the perfect season to explore the local culture and scenery as the majority of Benidorm’s hiking and biking routes are lacking in the shade department and can become hard to bear in the summer months. Other activities that benefit from November-February’s more pleasant temperatures include shopping and playing sports.
On a rare gloomy day, holidaymakers can still have fun by indulging at one of the many spas in town, going out for a nice meal or experiencing the famous Benidorm nightlife scene first hand.
