Weather Overview for La pineda
On the Costa Dorada in the
La Pineda is the quieter, more relaxed neighbor to the rowdier and livelier Salou which lies in the middle of the three towns, with Cambrils being a fairly typical finishing town. La Pineda is a popular destination for those with young children, couples wanting a summer get away or families wanting a relaxing holiday. It’s not the party town that Salou is, though there is still a buzzing atmosphere along the palm tree lined promenades in the height of summer.
Summer is a great time to visit, though this is the idea everyone has so be sure to book ahead and prepare your self for crowds as July and August are the busiest months of the year. The average maximum temperature in the warmest months is about 28 degrees and there are many days which see the mercury rise over 30 degrees. The minimums during this period only fall to 19 degrees, which generally occurs when the cooling sea breezes come through and when then sun sets. (Which won’t happen until after 9pm, after the region has basked in 10 hours of uninterrupted sunlight and clear skies!)
Just outside of La Pineda in nearby Vila- Seca, you will find Port Aventura, which is Disney style theme park owned by Universal Studies- this is a popular spot for families to take their children to enjoy the rides and theme park activities that it offers.
There is also the Aquopolis water park which lies in the heart of La Pineda, a perfect summer’s day escape from the heat. Though if water parks aren’t your thing, you’ll find the ocean temperature at a perfect 20 to 25 degrees throughout summer- an ideal temperature for a mid day break from the blistering Spanish sun.

Summer is the driest time of the year, with July only recording 19 mm of rainfall on average for the month. Rain begins to pick up by September, before peaking at the wettest month of October where average precipitation is 86 mm. The wettest times of the year is late autumn and Spring- so bear this in mind if you were planning a trip in the off season.
Winter brings daily minimums of about 5 degrees and maximums of 14 to 15 degrees. January is the coldest month, though there isn’t as much rainfall during winter, with January and February each recording about 31 to 36 mm of precipitation across the month. Average sunshine in winter falls to about 5 hours per day as the sky becomes slightly more overcast and the threat of rain is more common than in the summer months.
While rainfall is heavier in Autumn and Spring, it is fairly consistent across the year. Winter records 8 days of rain per month, Summer records 7 to 10 days (10 days in June, 7 in July and 8 in August) and Autumn and Spring see about the same- so you can see that rain is likely an any time of the year, though in summer it will fall in the form of light summer showers which actually come as a relief from the heat.
