“Welcome to the beautiful Spanish Spring!”
April in Southern Spain is a wonderful time of year. It’s probably still be cold in Northern Europe, but here on the Mediterranean, it’s swimming temperatures! April also sees the beginning of our new season, with Easter being the first major event of the year.

El Oceano Beach Hotel and Restaurant, April 2019
The Bank Holiday weekend aside, April is a great month to visit Andalucia and the Costa del Sol. The crazy summer crowds haven’t yet arrived and the towns and villages of Mijas Costa are welcoming, reasonably quiet and easily warm enough to sit outside with a glass of Rioja and a plate of Manchego Cheese and Serrano ham.
April Weather on the Costa del Sol
Still very much Spring not Summer, April will bring average temperatures of around 21ºC, that’s about 70º Fahrenheit! That’s pretty warm by most standards – specially Europe standards. And that’s just the average! Expect higher temperature! The evenings, however, tend to be a bit cooler as the sun goes down, so a Marks and Spencer lambswool jumper might be an idea. Or something similar, of course.
Exploring the Area
El Oceano is right on the coast, but within easy reach of a handful of beautiful ‘white towns’ and villages. La Cala de Mijas is just 5 minutes drive along the road, or 15/20 minutes walk along the fabulous Mijas Boardwalk. The Boardwalk runs directly outside our hotel and the walk is just beautiful. A 15 minute drive will get you to the spectacular little town of Mijas Pueblo,, perched in the foothills of the mountains. Am authentic ‘white town’, Mijas Pueblo is a great place for a day trip. Lots to see and do in April, all the amenities are open and the views from the mountainside, across the Costa del Sol, are just stunning. We absolutely recommend you visit Mijas Pueblo.
April also marks the start of the Spanish Summer Ferias (Fairs). All over Andalucia, from Málaga to Seville, Granada to Cordoba, the Ferias are fantastic fun, marking the end of the winter.
Thank you to andalucia.com for their comprehensive list of April Ferias.
Book your Luxury Holiday at El Oceano Beach Hotel this April
If your thinking about Easter weekend, we honestly recommend you think quickly. As mentioned above, it is always a very popular time here. Later in the month isn’t quite as busy, but April in the hotel is usually fully booked by the end of March. The restaurant also gets busy, as this is the first month after our winter closure, but hotel guests will always receive ‘first dibs’ on restaurant tables.
Book your April in Paradise! Go on… you know you deserve it!
