Ah sangria, sun, sea, palm trees and the sound of flamenco music floating through the maze of Seville’s streets until dawn – the dream! This is what we have in mind when we imagine our next holiday in Spain. Yet Spain is so much more than this… . It is a land with a strong heritage and a culture that thrives on its history. Spain can offer a geographical diversity as great as the number of its different regions. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees, the climate can vary according to region and, as a consequence, the number of available activities can too. If seas and mountains are not your thing, not to worry. Spain has many other joys to share, be it through its history, its museums or its architecture. By retracing the steps of great artists such as Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali or following the trail of great architects, you will be able to admire incredibly beautiful landmarks where various architectural styles come together. Lastly, the kindness of the Spanish people themselves is a trait that is unique to and found across Spain. They will always be there to welcome you with open arms around una tapita with their favourite local tipple: una cañita de cerveza! So what are you waiting for?

Start planning your summer trip to Spain

With its extensive coastlines, Spain boasts an abundance of beaches, idyllic for a summer vacation. The height of summer in Spain is a prime time for visitors from all over the world, who come to soak up the Mediterranean sunshine. Away from the beaches, you’ll discover the country’s cultural richness in cities like Madrid and Toldedo.

Why should I visit Spain in summer?

Summer is peak season in Spain, but don’t let the crowds put you off. This country comes alive during summer, with brilliant beach resorts buzzing with locals and tourists alike, and its dynamic cities enjoying the sweltering sunshine. There’s a wealth of UNESCO World Heritage Sites here, too, so go beyond the beaches and use the hot summer days to discover a little piece of Spanish history, too. 

Best things to do in Spain in summer

Spain offers so many summer activities and it can be hard to choose where to start. Here's a few tips for making your summer vacation in Spain a memorable one. 

Enjoy some sun, sea, and sand

Spain’s beaches are its biggest summer draw. You might play sports like volleyball on the golden sands, sunbathe, have leisurely picnics, or enjoy various water sports to cool down. The Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol, Costa Brava, and Costa de Valencia are some of Spain's most notable beach areas.

Stay extra cool at Icebarcelona

Having drinks is a great way to spend time during the Spanish summer—but what about cooling off at an ice bar? Believe it or not, one of Spain’s hottest cities is home to a bar made, on the inside, entirely from ice. You can have cocktails at Icebarcelona, a year-round beachside establishment where you might need to bring a jacket.

Head to Malaga’s August fair

The Malaga Fair is one of this city’s biggest events, held every August. During this 10-day festival, the city center is decorated with floral displays and paper lanterns, and numerous performances are held in Malaga’s old quarter. There's also evening fireworks, so don’t head to bed early. 

See Barcelona's architectural wonders

Barcelona is known for its architectural marvels, namely by the famed architect, Antoni Gaudi. The spires of the Gaudi-designed Sagrada Familia church are something to behold, as is its story. The artist’s Parc Guell and Casa Batllo are two more don’t miss sights, so take a Gaudi-themed tour to see some of the city’s best buildings. 

Hike the ‘greenways’

Spain has converted a number of former railway lines into 'vias verdes' or ‘greenways’, which are now used as hiking and biking routes. There’s over 1,700 miles of trails, showcasing some of the country's most beautiful natural landscapes.

What’s the weather like in Spain in summer?

Spain has one of the warmest European climates. Summers in Spain can get very warm, especially in the southern regions with temperatures often ranging between 86-104°F. Sunscreen, lightweight clothing, sunglasses, and hats are a must when traveling in Spain.
