Calella Weather April Averages, Spain
What's the Weather like in Calella in April
April is the ideal middle-ground time to visit Calella, before the crowds arrive, but when tourist attractions begin to open up, weather is very mild, and towards the end of the month the temperatures creep up higher still. You can find many cheap holiday deals at this time too, which certainly adds to its appeal, and this is also a very popular time for those who are seeking rest and relaxation.
You can expect an average temperature of around 13°C during the month, however the average high is more around the 19°C mark, which is certainly t-shirt and shorts weather! Evenings are still a little chilly, at an average low of around 7°C, however evening temperatures are slowly creeping up, in comparison with the previous few winter and early spring months; a light jacket or coat will suffice for evening walks, from late afternoon onwards.
The only major difference here is that rainfall has increased, as we move towards the rainiest month of the year, in May. April sees an average rainfall level of around 73mm, which can affect around 10 days to some degree; again, these downpours can be heavy from time to time, so do remember to take an umbrella with you to beat any unpredictable showers.
Average Sunshine Hours
This slight increase in rain however shouldn't deter from the fact that the sun shines in abundance, and will continue to do so as summer arrives you can expect an average of 10 hours of sunshine per day.
Average Sea Temperature
On top of this, the average water temperature is certainly hotting up, at 15°C across the month this is warm enough for water-sports, if not for swimming just yet.
This is also a fantastic time for exploring the region further, especially from the middle to end of the month, as more and more hotels, restaurants, and attractions begin to open their doors for another busy summer season.

Things to do in Calella in April
We may be approaching the wettest month of the year, but April is still a very mild and spring-like time to visit Calella, and for the outdoor elements which make up such an important part of the resort. If you feel the need to keep fit during your holiday, there is perhaps no better way to combine sightseeing, nature, and exercise, than heading off on one of the many mountain biking trails around the region.
You can choose from relatively short rides around the resort, or a more long-distance choice. One of the most popular routes is the Calelle to Arenys de Munt, and back to Calella route. This is around 19 miles in length and is classed as being moderate in difficulty. It's perhaps a good idea to break this up over a few days, and maybe camp or stay at a B&B as you go, to truly get the best out of your expedition. Alternatively, a more long distance choice is 29 miles in length, taking you through Pineda, Sant Pere de Riu, Sant Iscla, and back to Calella.

The mild April temperatures make for the ideal conditions.
Of course, a simple walk along the beach promenade is certainly a wonderful way to spend a little time, taking in the hotels and restaurants as they start to get ready for another busy summer season.
