The Sitges Climate and Weather - What to Expect


The ideal Mediterranean climate of Sitges sees it benefit from more than 300 days of sunshine a year. Located to the south of the Garraf Massif, this large rocky mountain range forms a natural barrier from colder northern winds that lets Sitges have what is considered its own micro climate. This is why, with such a busy calendar of festivals held throughout the year, visitors can enjoy this Catalonian resort anytime regardless of the season.

 

The summer time in Sitges is when it’s at its peak with the best months to visit in May, June and

September. Average daytime temperatures range from a comfortable 24 to 27 degrees Celsius. July and August is when Sitges is at its hottest with temperatures peaking at around 30 degrees during the day and rarely dropping below 20 degrees at night. August can be particularly humid.

 

In the hills behind Sitges where our holiday villas are located the summer days are a little hotter than on the coast with temperatures often exceeding 32 degrees, however, the nights are slightly cooler and more comfortable.

 

The fringe seasons of spring and autumn are considered the most pleasant times to visit Sitges with temperatures usually reaching the early 20s.

 

Sitges is also an ideal winter break destination with plenty of sunshine and even the odd day when it is warm enough to lay on the beach. Temperatures can vary between the low to mid teens during the day.

 

The dry Mediterranean climate means there is little rainfall in Sitges with the occasional shower usually in autumn and the spring. The late summer time may experience the odd torrential rain storm.

 

Whatever time of year you choose to visit Sitges, when planning your trip you can pretty much rest assured the gloves and scarf won’t need packing.
