Lloret de Mar travel guide

Weather and climate

Daytime temperatures get close to 30°C in Lloret de Mar by July and August, and it’s rare for temperatures to fall below 18°C at night in the summer, so make sure your hotel has air conditioning! This is the best time to visit if you’re looking for beach weather, although you can expect very warm, mostly dry weather from late June until at least early September. Sea temperatures off the coast of the Costa Brava reach the mid 20s °C by around August, which is ideal for swimming, and the water temperature can often remain above 20°C until at least October. For more comfortable sightseeing weather, book your holidays to Lloret de Mar in late spring or early Autumn, when it’s still warm enough to enjoy the great outdoors, but rarely too hot.
