The start of the summer, the tourist season, and the month that marks more stable weather conditions. You can smell the summer in the air, along with the fumes from increased city traffic =)
June is one of the most popular months to visit Fuengirola, as the conditions are just perfect for a good holiday. As a result, it can get pretty busy and crowded.
If you’re planning a holiday in Fuengirola in June, this post will answer all the questions you may have!

Weather in June
The weather in June is predictably warm, with average temperatures around 30C, sometimes reaching up to 35C.
The mornings are also already pretty warm and it’s not uncommon to experience close to 30C as early as 9am. The nights are also very warm, which makes it a little harder to sleep at night, with the rooms being so warm.
If you’re staying in an apartment during your holiday, check that it has an air conditioning unit in the bedroom, not just the living space. Also check that it’s not operated by a self-switch timer, which will kill the aircon after every 30 minutes.
The best way to stay cool? Go to the sea of course!
Most apartment buildings also have their own communal pools, but these may be quite busy and have limited opening hours. Some come with pretty strict rules in terms of what you can do there (no ball games, no floating toys allowed and similar).
There is almost zero chance of rain in June, so no need to bring any warmer clothing with you.
Sea Temperature in June
The sea temperatures in June hovers around 18C which is cool for most people, but thanks to the heat outside the dip in the sea is quite refreshing and welcome.
Beach Conditions in June
As evidenced by the photos below, June is the first month when the beaches are starting to get crowded. It’s not as bad as in July and August though.
If you want a good spot on the beach, you have to get there early in the morning.
That’s what I normally do and then head back home around lunchtime to cool off. I noticed most people come to the beach around lunchtime and stay till late in the afternoon.
The lifeguard is also on duty, but I think only till 8pm in the summer months.
The beaches have public toilets available, which are free of charge to use and also brand new beach showers to use. Recycling bins are available by the entrance to each beach.
How Busy is Fuengirola in June?
If you don’t like crowds, you might not enjoy Fuengirola in June. There is a lot of activity and a lot of tourists, so getting a table in a restaurant on Saturday night might be a little tricky.
The other side effect is the increased presence of cars, so finding a parking spot is harder than usual.
