Climate

Strongly influenced by the sea, it’s climate is typically Mediterranean, with a pleasant sunny climate, averaging 12 hours of sunshine in summer going down to approximately 5 to 6 hours in the mid-winter season.

Winters are mild, with the occasional short cold spells brought about by the north and north-easterly winds from central Europe.

Summers are hot, dry and very sunny. Day-time temperatures in summer are often mitigated by cooling sea breezes. 

Spring and autumn are cooler, except when the occasional Scirocco wind from Africa brings unseasonally high temperatures and humidity. 

Annual rainfall is low, averaging 568mm a year. Bathing in the sea is quite possible well into the ‘winter' months, and the peak beach season can last until mid- to late October, so Race day is generally pleasant, especially for those triathletes visiting us from colder climates.
