Known for its year-round sunshine, southeast Spain is the place to go for wonderful beaches, warm weather and Mediterranean lifestyle. In Alicante, there is a marina and a real taste of Spain in the old town and the Santa Cruz neighbourhood. Murcia's coast is home to endless beaches and small coves, many of these considered open-air spas, like Mar Menor, because of the hyper-saline waters. In the city, there is the Cathedral of Murcia, landscaped city square Glorieta and the 18th-century bridge Puente de los Peligros to explore. Leon says: "August may see some extremes, especially inland in southeast Spain. Sea breezes will keep temperatures at coasts a little lower. Although there will be isolated thunderstorms, August will mainly be dry. Southeast Spain will see temperatures of 28C to 32C in June and peak in the mid-30s late July to August with extremes of 36C to 40C likely, especially inland, like last August."
