Marbella climate: what will the weather be like?

It is a well-known fact that Marbella is a sunny and warm city. Obviously, it is not so all year round, but we can safely say that it boasts good weather for the greater part of the year. The climate of Spain in general is quite irregular, and even more so in Marbella. That means there will be many months when temperatures or rainfall will be far from average. However, the weather usually follows the same pattern one year after another.

  • Winter has mild temperatures and normally during the day we can wear light clothes. It is the most favourable season for rain, and half the time we may have rainfall.
  • Spring and autumn are even more irregular seasons, during which very sunny and warm days intertwine with cold and humid days. It is difficult to know well in advance what the weather is going to be like. Usually, pleasant temperatures and enough rainy days, but not as many as in winter.
  • In summer, however, most days are sunny, with rather high temperatures and clear skies. You won’t have to worry about the weather during your journey, because your driver will know in advance the forecast for your day of arrival. After you’ve booked your transfer with Malaga Cabbie, leave it to us to prepare your trip to avoid any sort of unpleasant surprises on your way from Malaga airport to Marbella.

Distance and duration of the journey from Malaga Airport to Marbella

Marbella is situated at 52 kilometres southwest from Malaga airport. Taking the Ap7 and A7 motorways, it is going to take us about 40 minutes to arrive, depending on traffic and your exact accommodation location in Marbella. You have to know that the A7 road, which is free of tolls, has heavy traffic very often, especially during peak season, from Monday to Saturday. You won’t have to worry about your driver being there on time, though, because we closely monitor the traffic circumstances on the day of your arrival. Nevertheless, it’s important that you book your pick-up time keeping in mind that it’s possible you might have to spend more time travelling than you had initially anticipated, particularly if you’re also booking your return transfer to the airport.

Interesting places across the route: hotels, restaurants, clubs, villas, service areas…

You can find several service areas on the journey from Malaga airport to Marbella. These areas include petrol stations, supermarkets, shopping areas, snack bars, etc. You may need or want to stop by some of these places on your way to your accommodation. If your transfer driver still has plenty of time until his next service, he can provide you a short stop. This might not always be possible, so if you think you may need it, let us know so in the comments when filling out your booking request. Please, be sure to also check our terms and conditions regarding stops before the trip.

Other villages and towns near Marbella

On our way from Malaga airport to Marbella we will drive by several common holiday destinations. First of them is Torremolinos and its Aqualand water park. Do you know Benalmadena and its famous cable car? You will see it after passing Torremolinos with your transfer service. Next place is Mijas town, which is not the same as La Cala Mijas. Mijas is a lovely place situated in the hills, surrounded by trees and gorgeous nature. La Cala Mijas is a beach location full of restaurants, hotels, resorts and sunny entertainment. It is followed by Fuengirola, which equals to more beach, sun fun and hotels. One of the most interesting things you can see when we pass by Fuengirola is the Castle of Sohail. A reminder of ancient history and its glorious battles.

If we follow the A7 free road, we will find some modern beach areas like Torrenueva, Riviera del Sol and Calahonda. Not as much ancient history in these places but several current resorts, hotels, restaurants and other relaxing areas to spend your holidays at full blast.

Cabopino is the next location, and here begins the Marbella area. First we will see Las Chapas, Elviria y Los Monteros, and then we will finally arrive to Marbella and its renowned arch at the entrance.

Beaches and views

Views are one of the most attractive things on the route from Malaga airport to Marbella. Forget everything about the usual boring road from other places. All around here is full of a stunning variety of landscapes, from the mountains of Mijas to the beaches that we can see when we pass by Fuengirola. We can also see hotels, restaurants, tropical vegetation and many lights on both sides of the road that will try to get your attention. Due to the road running parallel and close to the beach, you will be able to see a large number of pedestrians crossing through the many bridges it has.

Tolls and motorway

If you want to avoid traffic jams and other risks, we recommend you to take the toll road. You will save some valuable time and it will be a safer route, which is the most important thing. In peak season it costs 7.50 Euros, which is paid by the customer. If you prefer to use the toll road during your transfer from Malaga airport to Marbella, you can let us know in your transfer booking. You may also request it directly to your driver before leaving Malaga airport.


Marbella is one of the most exciting Costa del Sol destinations, and perhaps even in Spain, but you have to be careful in certain situations.
Beware of online bookings through airbnb. Using Malaga Cabbie’s transfer services will provide you an excellent experience and it’s the best way to start your holidays. But in several occasions we found out that after arriving to Marbella, our customers had been scammed with their accommodation. Book with reliable hosts only.

Unfortunately, we cannot provide taxi services within Marbella’s local area, only a transfer service from or to Malaga airport. If you want to take a taxi, avoid all kinds of unlicensed service, not only for your own safety, but also to support the professionals who provide their service legally.

Enjoy your holidays to the max, making the most of your stay in Marbella. Don’t forget to be careful with the beer and sun combination, which is so characteristic of this place, as it can turn out to be quite a dangerous affaire.

Have a nice stay and thank you for depositing your trust in MalagaCabbie. You’ve chosen wisely by booking your transfer with us!
