Andalusia is the largest region of Spain and it is located in the south of the country. Therefore, when we talk about the weather conditions in Andalusia we are referring to a region that has a predominantly Mediterranean climate. However because of its great extensiveness, it’s temperatures and conditions will vary depending on the area, altitude and latitude. Regardless, the Mediterranean climate has, by definition, many hours of sunshine, warm temperatures in the summer and mild weather in the winter.
The Andalusian coast, from Huelva to Tarifa, in Cadiz, feature an Oceanic Mediterranean climate and from Tarifa to the western-most edge of Almeria, which include both the coasts of Malaga and Granada, a Tropical Mediterranean climate. Both of these weather climates boast temperatures that are conducive to yachting and yacht tourism, year-round. In fact, the average temperature, for both Malaga and the costa del Sol is approximately 18 degrees Celsius making it ideal for tourism in any season.
In Andalusia, it is likely for people to talk about Puerto Sherry. Why? Simple! Puerto Sherry is as an ideal zone for yachts and entertainment services, and as well as it is an exclusive zone with hotels and apartments. It also sits in a strategic position for visiting Gibraltar. And its perfect location, relative to Cadiz, natural areas, and beautiful landscapes, is attracting, an increasing number of nautical tourists, each year, especially during the summer.
Furthermore, Puerto Sherry has a wide range of services for visitors. For this reason, many nautical championships are being organized here throughout the year: including the Super Series Royal Cup, the World Sailing Championship, etc.

The “Costa del Sol“ is one of the most popular tourist destination in Spain. Approximately 35% of all tourists to this country choose to visit the Costa del Sol coastal area. But how did this area get its name?
The concept of Costa del Sol was coined by Rodolfo Lussning in 1928, owner of a hotel in Almeria, as a part of a promotional campaign presented in the newspaper ¨La Cronica Meridional¨. The goal of the campaign was to attract new foreign tourists to the 1929 expositions in Seville and Barcelona. The name was not adopted, as a mainstream concept and/or used in the different communication media, until 1947.
Today, the Costa del Sol zone stretches along 185km of the coast of Malaga starting at the municipality of La Linea de la Conception all the way to Nerja; although sometimes some municipalities of the coast of Granada up until Motril may also be included.
Another coined name for the Costa del Sol is Costa del Golf. This name was given to this area owing to the high number of golf courses found in the region. In fact, Andalusia takes first place, in all of Spain and Europe, for the number of golf courses it has. Therefore it is a fantastic zone and an ideal place to do this sport if you decide to visit Andalusia by yacht.read more
