What’s the weather like in Calella in May?
Located along the Costa del Maresme next to Spain’s popular Costa Brava and not far from Barcelona, Calella is a beautiful old fishing village and seaside resort. It has a Mediterranean climate with warm summers and mild winters, although showers are possible all year round. Temperatures are warming up in May as spring turns into summer, and the number of daily sunshine hours rises to 11 this month. It’s still a little cooler than the peak months of July and August, making this a good time to visit Calella if you like comfortable temperatures and fewer crowds.
The average temperature in Calella is 17ºC in May, reaching a high of 23ºC in the hottest part of the day. Temperatures cool down to 11ºC once the sun goes down, so you’ll need to bring plenty of warmer layers if you want to explore the resort’s traditional bars and restaurants by night. Around 70mm of rain’s expected over 12 days in May, so it’s worth bringing a waterproof in case you get caught in a shower. The Mediterranean Sea heats up to 18ºC this month, so it’s definitely warm enough to go swimming and snorkelling.
