Barcelona is situated in the northeast of Spain, and it has a typical Mediterranean climate. Its summers are hot and winters are mild. The weather during the autumn and spring is pleasant, too, (even when there is chance of showers and thunderstorms), so tourists can visit comfortably all the year.
July and August are the warmest months in Barcelona, when the maximum temperatures are around 27–28 °C (81–82 °F) during the day and 20 °C (68 °F) at night. The environment is hot and humid, and it is almost always sunny. Barcelona has an average of 2.524 hours per year of sunshine duration, something very common in the southern half of Europe but very different from the north of the continent, where they have around 1.500 hours of sunshine per year.
All these conditions can be exceptional for tourists who want to spend as much time on the beach as they can. The average annual temperature of the sea is about 18ºC (64 °F), but during the summer, it is warmer: in July, 23ºC (73 °F), in August, 25ºC (77 °F)! But the beach is not the only option for cooling off during the summer in Barcelona. Bar terraces, cool drinks, ice-creams, the popular “orxata”… and hotels with nice pools!
