  • The province saw temperatures of around 30 degrees on Saturday, but the forecast for this week is much gloomier

Malaga province enjoyed temperatures of around 30 degrees on Saturday and in the mid-twenties on Sunday as the weather conditions saw both residents and tourists come out in their hundreds to enjoy the summery climate.

All the beaches across the coastal strip of the city were full of sunbathers, swimmers in the sea and people doing other outdoor sports such as paddle surfing, with deckchairs becoming more and more scarce as the day progressed.

The town of Marbella also saw swarms of people on its beaches, despite work that was still ongoing on some of them to repair the damage caused by the recent storms.

However, there were many other who preferred to enjoy the hot weather in a different manner, either by walking on the esplanade, cycling or going for a jog.

Beach bars and restaurants were not the only businesses that profited as a result, with many hotels and other accommodation being fully booked as people from all over Andalucía came to the province.

Unfortunately the warm weekend weather in the area was short-lived as Monday saw temperatures drop back down to between 10 and 15 degrees, with cloudy weather and possible rain forecast for the rest of the week.
