Best time to go to Altea
The climate in Spain is typical of the Mediterranean region. On the mainland, the spring and autumn months are normally mild. And things start to heat up in the summer, when the mercury regularly reaches into the high 20s and there’s plenty of sunshine. The Balearic Islands feature hot summers, as well, beginning in May, when temperatures climb into the mid-20s, and peaking in July and August with highs topping 30°C. To the south, the Canary Islands – also known as the ‘Islands of Eternal Spring’ – have mild, sub-tropical weather, with temperatures rarely dipping below 20°C in winter and 25°C in summer. As far as rainfall goes, the western islands see the most showers. However, during the summer it hardly rains at all.
