Best Times to Visit Marbella

The best time to visit Marbella is in September and October when summer's tourists have departed but temperatures are still warm enough for a dip in the Mediterranean. The months that span November and March see lower temperatures and fewer tourists, while April is another nice shoulder season of moderate temps and bearable crowds. Summertime's peak season attracts throngs of tourists, but temps and rates on everything from flights to hotels, are at their highest this time of year.

November-March

The months that stretch from November to March offer average temperatures that range from the 40s to 60s, which tend to be chilly for swimming in the Mediterranean but are nonetheless nice enough to explore some of Marbella's best things to do, without the hassle of crowds.

May-August

Summertime is Marbella's sweltering high season, when both temps and the number of travelers skyrocket.
