The mild climate in this area ensures a comfortable vacation any time of year. Back in the days when you couldn’t just hop on a plane to a tropical destination, our town was a winter hot spot for European aristocrats who needed a break from harsh winter conditions in their own countries. Today, our town is mostly a summer destination, but because the spring and autumn are also quite warm and sunny, many choose to visit outside of the main season. On top of warm temperatures and plenty of sunny hours, the clean Mediterranean air and sea provide an extremely healthy environment, perfect for those with respiratory issues, rheumatism and other health conditions.
The clean water is of course also of interest to divers. On a sunny day, the water transparency reaches down to 30 meters / 100 feet. The surface salinity levels are between 23 per mill and 37 per mill. The average water and air temperatures depend on the season. For average temperatures during some of our popular diving periods check the table below.
