Weather Overview for Santa Susanna

Santa Susanna is a small coastal town on Spain’s Costa Brava. It sits in the northeast of the country in the Catalonia region. The town lies about 70km northeast up the coast from Barcelona.

The climate of the region is Mediterranean with long hot summers and mild winters. The Costa Brava, or ‘wild coast’ is known for its great summer weather. The high temperatures and plentiful sunshine make it a perfect summer beach holiday destination. The warm surrounding seas help to keep winter temperatures mild; it doesn’t get nearly as cold as inland regions during winter months.

Annual rainfall is quite low at around 600mm and its spread quite evenly across the year with summer the driest time and late spring/late autumn the wettest.

Summer

Summer is when the tourists flock to Santa Susanna and this once sleepy village comes alive with people from all over Europe enjoying the sunshine on the excellent beaches.

Summer weather lasts from June to September when average temperatures sit in the 20s. July and August are the hottest months of the year and can see daily highs up towards 30°C. Night time temperatures remain in the high teens during summer months. Summer days see an excellent 8-9hrs of sunshine on average.

Summer heat waves can bring much hotter temperatures to Santa Susanna, sometimes up into the high 30s. Thankfully, the coastal location means a cooling breeze often sweeps through the town. As well as cool sea air, the Tramonata winds bring cool air down from the Pyrenees Mountains in the north.

Rainfall is low and unlikely to disturb you often. The driest month is July with just under 40mm average rainfall. Other summer months see around 50-60mm. Most of the rain falls in short heavy showers, so there is still plenty of sunshine. Summer days can get quite humid but the coastal breezes help to moderate this.

Winter

Winters are generally mild in Santa Susanna thanks mainly to the coastal location; temperatures inland can frequently drop below 0°C in northern and central Spain. In Santa Susanna the months from December to February see average temperatures at around 8°C, with daytime highs rising to 13°C or 14°C and nightly lows dropping to a bit of a chilly 2°C. It rarely gets to freezing on the coast.

In terms of rainfall, you can expect some wet stormy weather, but precipitation is not high – averaging around 50-60mm a month.

Winter days still average 4 to 5 hours of sunshine which is a great improvement on the gloomy days seen in the UK.

Occasionally, the Tramonata winds can bring cold weather down from the Pyrenees and it will feel pretty chilly. Strong winds can occur along the coast in winter too, but you never really get harsh cold winter weather here. It is more akin to spring in England.

Spring and Autumn

These are both excellent seasons to visit Santa Susanna as temperatures are good and crowds are significantly thinner. However, late spring and late autumn are the wettest times of the year with around 80mm monthly rainfall.

Of the two seasons autumn is the warmest with average highs ranging from 22°C in October to 16°C in November. Temperatures are good in May too, getting up to the low/mid 20s in the day.

The sea temperature is a bit too cool for swimming in spring, unless you’re brave, but it is quite sunny, while the sea retains the summer heat well into autumn when it can be more overcast.
