The Weather in Malaga in March

We never tire of saying it: In Malaga we enjoy almost an eternal spring. While in March the weather can still be unsettled at times with the occasional rain, the sun takes a strong role every day.

Temperatures easily hover around 20ºC and can even reach 23ºC/25ºC on hotter days.

Many people already enjoy the beach sunbathing and some taking their first baths (the water is still cold, around 16ºC).
