Is June a Good Month to Visit Marbella?

Yes, if you’re after sunshine and beach days!

Here is a quick summary of pros and cons of visiting Marbella in June:

Pros Cons
Perfect weather for beach activities and sunbathing Higher prices for accommodation and services due to peak season
Lively atmosphere with many events and nightlife options Can get crowded, especially in popular areas and beaches
Longer days with more daylight to explore and enjoy outdoor activities Potential for occasional hot spells, making midday activities less comfortable
Great time for water sports and other maritime activities Need to book restaurants and attractions in advance due to demand
Opportunity to experience local festivals and cultural events Some businesses may be overcrowded, leading to a decline in service quality

Airport Transport

Book your airport transfer from Malaga in advance and get the best price online. No need to drive.

May vs June in Marbella

The temperatures in June are considerably higher, so if you could choose between May and June, I recommend visiting in May.

In addition to higher temperatures, June is also the main holiday season and that translates to higher prices for accommodation and the city becomes very busy indeed.

June vs July in Marbella

For similar reasons as before, I recommend visiting in June, as in July the temperatures climb even higher and there are even more people coming to the city for summer holidays.

Which Airport for Marbella?

The closest airport to Marbella is Malaga Costa del Sol Airport (AGP), which is about 50 km from Marbella.

You can get to Marbella using local buses, but there are no train connections apart from the one through Fuengirola. You can also take a taxi from the airport; they are available on the right side of the arrivals hall.

In the summer months, when there are more flights arriving at the same time, you might have to wait for a while for a taxi to be available.

If you want to save yourself the hassle, you can also book your airport transfer in advance – I recommend Get Transfer, I have used them many times. Just enter your trip details and they will source quotes for your transport from local companies, so you can choose the best price or car you want.

For car rentals, I recommend Discover Car – an award-winning car rental comparison platform. Enter Malaga Airport as your pick up and drop off location and the car will be waiting for you when you arrive.


You don’t need a car to explore Marbella, but to see more of Costa del Sol, I highly recommend renting a car.

Practical Travel Tips for Visiting Marbella

Best seats in the Old Town of Marbella.

1. Getting Around

Rent a Car or Use Public Transport?

While Marbella is known for its walkable promenades and quaint Old Town, consider renting a car if you plan to explore the broader Costa del Sol area.

However, within Marbella itself, public transport and taxis can efficiently get you where you need to go.

2. Beach Time

Marbella boasts over 27 kilometers of coastline, so you’re spoiled for choice.

For a lively beach day, head to Playa de la Fontanilla, right near the city center. If you’re after something more serene, try Playa de Cabopino, known for its natural dunes and relaxed vibe.

3. Nightlife in Marbella in June

Marbella is famous for its vibrant nightlife. Whether you’re into sleek clubs, beach bars, or chic lounges, there’s something for everyone. Puerto Banús is the hub for high-end nightlife, but for a more laid-back evening, check out the bars in the Old Town.

In June, even though it’s not the height of the summer, there will be plenty of activity around to keep you busy and entertained.

4. Eating Out

Spaniards eat late, so adjust your clock to enjoy the full experience.

Tapas bars are your go-to for a casual yet delicious meal, and don’t miss out on the local seafood. For a real treat, venture into the Old Town for dinner; the ambiance is as delightful as the food.

5. Discover the Old Town

Marbella’s Casco Antiguo (Old Town) is a maze of narrow streets, white-washed buildings, and hidden squares. Take time to wander without a map; discovering quaint shops, art galleries, and cozy cafes is part of the fun.

6. Respect the Siesta

Adjust to Local Timings – Many shops and businesses close for siesta in the early afternoon, especially in the less touristy areas. Plan your day accordingly, and use this time to relax or enjoy a leisurely lunch just like the locals.
