Costa del Sol officially Spain’s sunniest region


 ‘YOU don’t need a weatherman to tell which way the wind blows’, but the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) has confirmed what most of us already knew…the Costa del Sol is the sunniest spot in Spain.

A comprehensive report released by the agency considers data from 1981-2010 and found that Malaga, the gateway to the Costa del Sol, clocks up a pleasingly round average of 3,000 hours of sun a year, the most in all of Spain.

The larger Mediterranean stretch from Gibraltar right through to Almeria averages 2,905 sun-drenched hours, almost 100 more than the nation’s second sunniest territory, the Canary Islands, which wracks up 2,822 on average. 


Malaga also boasts the country’s best climate according to the AEMET report, which noted the mitigating influence of sea breezes and mild winters sparing the city the sweltering fate afforded those in Sevilla and Granada.
