It is known for its romantic and beautiful stretches of untouched natural coasts and its sunny weather.

Ideal Time to Go: Sunny weather is often an easy find all year round, so if that is all you want then you could pack up and set off to your Costa Brava holiday right now and you’ll likely be satisfied. Most Costa Brava holiday-goers flock there during July and August, these are obviously great months to visit with great weather and plenty going on, but if you’re after a more relaxed holiday without the crowds and possibly a cheaper price tag, we recommend May, June & September, as the weather is fine and you’ll be avoiding those large crowds of tourists.
Weather: The average annual temperature in Costa Brava is a fine 15.2°C; however, in the warmest month of July, the average temperature is a very respectable 24°C.
