Marbella enjoys an unusually pleasant micro-climate bringing marvellous weather. This is due to it's position with the Mediterranean Sea and beach to the south and the Sierra Blanca mountain range behind it to the north. A truly fabulous sun-trap. It may be windy in the Straits of Gibraltar, there may be rough seas and waves just up the coast in Fuengirola, it could be blowing spray onto the Paseo Maritimo just down the coast in Estepona, but the weather in Marbella will be calm and pleasant.
