The climate of Costa Brava (Spain)
The Costa Brava is the most northerly situated coastal region along
the Mediterranean Sea in Spain. This region was among the first where
mass tourism started in the second part of the 20th century.
Especially people from Northern Europe traveled here to enjoy the
pleasant Mediterranean climate with many hours of sunshine, pleasant
temperatures and warm sea water during the summer. Unfortunately, mass
tourism had its impact: the surroundings suffered. Along the coast
many hotels and apartment complexes can be found that do not look
particularly attractive. However, during the 90s an ever increasing
number of people could afford to fly to distant countries. Because of
this many countries and regions with a similar climate could be
reached. This caused the rise of mass tourism on the Costa Brava to
Something that hasnít changed over the course of years is the weather.
Temperatures are fairly constant. However, heat waves seem to occur
more often than several decades ago. Thunder storms also seem to be
heavier during the summer causing floods. These kinds of phenomena
make the headlines every now and then. You will not read in the news
that it is dry and sunny 300 days per year because this has no news
value. However, every tourist that travels here does know that the
weather is very pleasant with the occasional shower.
Specific climate information is available for the following places on
the Costa Brava:
L'Estartit, Lloret de Mar,
de Mar, Platja d'Aro,
Rosas and Tossa de Mar.
