    We are in Roquetas del Mar at moment very windy. Heading down to Marbella. Does anyone know if the wind is a problem down this coast.

    Hi we usually spend mid December to Mid March moving along the Coast from the Algarve to Valencia and we have found that for the last 4 or 5 years we have been troubled by high winds. I suppose that because we "wild camp" its a bonus because we can usually move the van to face into the wind or we have often found a place to shelter at the side of a high building.
    Last year we had trouble with the wind all the way along the coast from Almerimar,Roquetas, Almeria,and Cabo de Gata over the space of 10-12 days.
    We are leaving for the Tunnel on Monday so it has not put us off coming.

    Have heard it said, but no direct evidence. That Benidorm (area) has a "local Micro-climate" Something to do with the proximity to Mountains?. Probably "Travel agent Speak"??.

    Some inland parts are up to 2500M above sea level?

    IIRC The costa del sol was called the costa del viente untill it was changed for the tourist industry.
