The above are guidelines for what my past 6 years have been like here. There are, of course, exceptions. Two years ago, we had Hurricane Delta, destroying both the harbours, ripping down palm trees and overturning boats and cars! We also get a couple of siroccos and calimas a year, when the pink sand blows over from the Sahara and the air temperature can rise to 50ºC (it hit 60ºC for 10 minutes 4 years back – now that wasn’t nice!) But on the whole, you can expect hot, sunny days and warm evenings. Don’t forget your sun cream!
