Sunny days are pretty common even in November!

Marbella on Costa del Sol offers a unique blend of Mediterranean charm and chic style, even as the year winds down. November is a delightful time to visit Marbella, thanks to its mild weather and relatively quiet streets.

Here’s your guide to dressing smartly and comfortably during this month, ensuring you make the most of your visit, from strolling through the old town to enjoying the vibrant nightlife.

Weather in November

November in Marbella brings cooler, more pleasant temperatures compared to the scorching summer months.

Expect daytime highs around 18°C (64°F), dipping to cooler evenings around 11°C (52°F). While generally mild, the weather can be unpredictable, with a few rain showers. It’s a transitional period, so layering is key.

Here is a quick weather recap for November:

  • temperatures: lows of 10C (50F) to highs of 18C (64F)
  • rainy days: 7 – 10 days
  • cloudy days: roughly half of the month
  • sunshine hours: 6 hours per day
  • sea temperature: 18C (64F)

Tourism in November

This time of the year sees fewer tourists, offering a more relaxed vibe.

You’ll avoid the summer crowds, making it perfect for exploring the city’s historical sites, luxurious marinas, and beautiful beaches in peace.

The weather is still pretty pleasant for boat trips or cruises too, so you won’t miss out on any of the fun by visiting in November.

November Outfits for Marbella

For the day, you want to wear a few warmer layers with a jacket, and comfy shoes for exploring. The weather can change pretty quickly and a shower might arrive even though it’s not in the forecast.

If you’re visiting at the beginning of the month, it’s likely to be still pretty warm so you can even bring some short-sleeved options and a dress, but keep your cardigan handy as the day temperatures won’t last for very long.

While it’s very pleasant if you’re out in the sun, as soon as you get into the shade or the sun goes down, you will feel instantly cooler. The winds in November pick up too, so they can make you feel much colder.

Early mornings and evenings call for a few extra layers as they have much lower temperatures.

Packing Guide for Marbella

So what should be in your luggage?

  • Lots of layers with long and short sleeves
  • Warmer coat, ideally weatherproof
  • Umbrella
  • Comfortable waterproof shoes
  • Slippers (if you stay in an apartment they have very cold floors)
  • Power adapter for the sockets (EU F shape)
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen
