Destination Essentials

Mojacar, with its gloriously sunny climate, invites you throughout the year. For heat-seekers, the period from late June to early September offers blissful hot-weather activities under a swath of over 3000 radiant sunshine hours.

A subtler cool season from November to March brings gentle temperatures from 10 °C to 18 °C, perfect for sightseeing and exploring the town without breakouts of sweltering sweat.
