Orihuela costa beaches

Just like the other resorts on the Costa Blanca, Orihuela Costa enjoys a Mediterranean climate. This contrasts with the general climate throughout Spain. Rainfall occurs only occasionally throughout the year and the sun is to be seen and felt noticeably during all months.

In the area of ​​temperatures, there are also few extremes to mention. Frost hardly ever occurs and extreme heat with temperatures of 40 degrees or higher is also very rare.

The mild dry winters and pleasant summers are caused by a southern climate in which the Mediterranean Sea has a warming effect on the region during the winter. This effect is protected by the presence of mountains and hills that retain the heat of the sea and stop the cold air from the inland.
