Even though the winter eases, nights during this period may still be chilly but the days are quite sunny and pleasant. This is true for Spain’s northern Atlantic coast.The average temperatures in San Sebastián will likely range between 50 Fahrenheit to 60s. Similar goes with Madrid but might show a dip into the 40s at night as it is located in a desert plateau.

The Mediterranean coast will have pleasant sunny weather but a dip in the ocean might not be a good idea as the water would be too chilly for that. This might not be the case with the water in the south of Andalusia.

Spain come alive truly at night, when after finishing the day’s work people head out for tapas, wine and dancing until next morning. If you wish to join the party with them note that it can be chilly at nights in March so carry jackets and pullover accordingly. Pack an umbrella if you plan to visit in northern part of the country as the chances of rains are still high over there. Sunlight is good enough for a beach dat in the south but it won’t be a swimming season yet.
