Costa del Sol Basks in Unseasonable Sunshine

In an unexpected turn of events, beachgoers were seen soaking up the sun along the Costa del Sol this past Saturday. The region, known for its stunning beaches and vibrant nightlife, experienced temperatures soaring past 20C. This unusual weather pattern is not typically seen in January, making it a pleasant surprise for locals and tourists alike.

Swimming and Paddle Boarding in January

The warm weather prompted people to indulge in water activities, with some even spotted swimming and paddle boarding in the sea. This is a sight not commonly seen this far into January, adding to the unusual charm of the day for Sun Seekers and Swimmers. The Marbella beach was particularly bustling with sunbathers and paddle boarders, making the most of the unexpected sunshine.

Andalucia’s Water Crisis

However, the sunny weather comes with its own set of challenges. Earlier this week, Andalucia’s president, Juanma Moreno, issued a warning about the region’s dire need for rain. According to Moreno, the region requires the equivalent of 30 continuous days of rain to alleviate the ongoing drought that is ravaging much of the country. He also hinted at the possibility of water cuts in the coming weeks.
