September in Costa
Dorada will expect some
occasional thunderstorms and there will be rain at an estimate of 5 days at 30
mm. We see shorter days at an average of 240 C and 11 sunshine hours
per day. Still, the warm weather should be more inviting as the scorching
heat of summer has gone and so are most of the tourists. There will be
lesser crowds at the beach and the tourist spots.
