Best Time to Visit Spain

Best time to visit Spain and what to do ?

Majorca Beach

When to visit Spain, that is a good question and depends on many things. Overall, spring, early summer and autumn are ideal times for a Spanish trip – though the weather varies enormously from region to region. The high central plains suffer from fierce extremes, stiflingly hot in summer, with much cooler winters.

The Atlantic coast in the south, in contrast, has a tendency to have hot summers with cooler evening temperatures and mild to colder winters. The Mediterranean side of the south is warm virtually all year round, and in parts of Andalucia positively subtropical, warm enough to wear a T-shirt by day even in the winter months.

In high summer the other factor worth considering is tourism itself. Spain plays host to some thirty five million tourists a year – almost one for every resident – and all the main beach and mountain resorts can be pretty busy during July and August, as are the major sights. August, Spain’s holiday month, sees the coast as its most crowded and the cities, by contrast, pretty sleepy.
