For all of those living in the Northern hemisphere, the month of February is possibly the coldest of the year, with plenty of rain, snow and low temperatures. Well, just to make you a teeny bit envious, just take a look at the weather chart for the whole of Spain for the next 4 days: the whole country is in the sun, with daytime temperatures reaching as high as 20º Celsius on the Mediterranean coast.

This is not a freak weather pattern, however, because the Spanish White Coast or “Costa Blanca” is classified as enjoying a Mediterranean climate, with warm weather all year round and mild winters. The centre and North of the country aren’t as lucky as the East coast and the Southern area as the temperatures tend to be more pronounced at both ends: colder winters and hotter summers.

The Mediterranean coast is the number one tourist destination in the world in terms numbers of holidaymakers each year with the main advantage being the climate that can be enjoyed in this natural environment.

From a tourist and residential point of view, the Mediterranean climate, also referred to as Warm Climate with Dry Summers, offers added advantages over Humid Tropical and Subtropical climates.

The total amount of rainfall is far less, with more sunny days for enjoying the beaches and outdoor sports. The months with less rain coincide with the summer months. Fine weather is far more prevalent in Mediterranean areas, particularly in La Costa Blanca.

Alicante, in La Costa Blanca, enjoys a Mediterranean climate. The altitude, orography, distance to the sea and orientation are decisive factors in defining this climate, which allows us to enjoy warm weather all year round. The main centres of action are the polar front, which unloads masses of humid air, and the area of high pressure of the Azores, which dominate in summer.

The sea breeze marks a very regular rhythm from May to October. In this period, it has very moderate values, even calming down entirely at night in July and August.

La Costa Blanca enjoys exceptional weather with more than 2,800 hours of sun per year and an average annual temperature of approx. 18º C, making this microclimate perfect for all-year-round living, with winters that feel like spring or summer.

This climate is classified as one of the healthiest by the World Health Organisation, WHO, in its reports on healthy towns, cities and communities.

So, what are you waiting for to visit the area and improve your quality of life by buying a property on the Costa Blanca? Take a look at the luxury homes for sale in this area of Spain at and go for it!
