Default Humidity?

Does the Costa del Sol suffer from High humidity levels, or is it more of a dry heat?

if you are comparing it to tropical weather, then the answer is no. Not really that humid.

No, not tropical humid I expect, but I thought it was always more humid by the coast??? Perhaps I've just got used to the dry heat of Madrid, but a hot summer in W-S-M in the UK will finish me off.
This is from a thread about places to live in Tarragona, which is not CDS, but around there somewhere
one thing about Tarragona city is that it gets terribly humid during the summer months. I met my OH in Tarragona so I have fond memories of the place, and he lived there for a few years. He would start to sweat around May and didn't stop until the end of September , and he's Spanish! Perhaps it's better if you're a bit inland.

I lived in Hong Kong for a long time. The relative humidity there was about 90% for most of the year, so perhaps I have skewed perception of what is humid or not

And I now live inland and up in the mountains

"healthy" is is supposed to be between 55% and 65% relative humidity..... what normal is, usually means where you live at the time

In Asturias (76% humidity today) we have high humidity all year round and it is a pain but in 6 years we have learned better how to handle it. Even so I can see us in 10 years time moving to the south as it seems to take its toll on some peoples health "ay up me joints are giving me gip today luv. t'was better back in Yorkshire".

in all my time in HK, the onlyway I ever found to handle the high humidity was find a place with DGAC, preferably a pub. (Damn Good Air Con)
