Climate and sunshine

Xàbia has a mild climate during the entire year.  Thanks to the montgó mountain barrier, the town is protected from the continental winter cold fronts and benefits from the sea winds and westerly breezes which provide relief from the summer heat.  Xàbia’s climate is considered as the world’s second best microclimate.  The average annual temperature ranges from 18 to 22 degrees.

The magic of its golden sunshine, the sparkling interplay of white and blue colours, the fresh air and warmth of our coast seduced Sorolla to reside for long stays in xàbia, which provided him with subjects and inspiration for many of his most famous paintings.
