Travel to Barcelona in June

Together with July and August, June is one of the most touristy months in Barcelona. Summer transforms the city: the festivals, music events and bathing start. Here is our opinion on the advantages and disadvantages of travelling to Barcelona this month!

Advantages

Arrival of Summer: In Barcelona, the climate is always fantastic for doing everything, but we know that walking in the parks, sunbathing or taking an excursion to Park de Collserola is different in summer. Enjoy this month and discover the best part of the city. If you want a guide for the best parks in Barcelona, you can read this interesting article.

Pleasant Temperature: In the month of June, the temperatures are high without it being too hot. You won't be sweating every time you step outside and can enjoy the lovely weather.

Beach: In June you will be able to swim at Barceloneta! The sea hasn't had enough time to fully warm up but it is still nice to swim there. You can lie on the beach, sunbathe, play beachvolley...

Disadvantages

Tourists: The summer months are more chaotic. The number of tourists in Barcelona increases significantly compared to the previous months. Therefore, it will be more difficult to blend in with the locals.
