The climate is subtropical Mediterranean with mild winters and hot summers. The climate of this part of Andalusia, exceptional and known as the best one Europe, is special thanks to its geographic situation as it is protected from cold winds from the north by the Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama mountain ranges.
The Mediterranean Sea's influence on temperatures is such that these vary little and are very pleasant all year round, either the ambient one or that of the sea.
