In April...
 
Temperatures continue to rise during April in Malaga with an average daytime maximum temperature of 20°C and an average overnight minimum of 10°C. The rise in temperature during the spring months tends to be moderated by the proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, for the trend in sea temperature tends to lag that of land temperature and the sea thus increasingly has a cooling effect. This can bring issues with low visibility and, on occasion, sea fog. Due to the fact that the sea breezes tend to peak during the afternoon, sometimes the highest temperature of the day is recorded during the morning or evening. Read more
