How To Stay Cool in Barcelona

June 27, 2021
The city of Barcelona is hot in more ways than one. There's the famous Mediterranean heat, all the sexy locals, and, of course, the amazing hotspots. All year round, Barcelona sizzles, making it one of the hottest destinations in the world. And during summer, the temperature rises unlike any other. So much so that you might want to cool off less you want to suffer a heat stroke. But how does one cool off here in the Catalonian capital? What can you do to pass the time whilst avoiding overheating here? Well, these ideas might strike your fancy!

How To Stay Cool in Barcelona


Wake Up Early

Though Barcelona is beloved for its warm weather, it's not hot all day long here. Early in the morning, just as the sun is rising, the air remains chilly enough for you to want to go outside. Once you open your window, you'll instantly feel the cool breeze of morning twilight. That's why, during this time of the day, you'll see a lot of people running, riding their bikes, taking a stroll, and enjoying breakfast in some of the terrace cafés that have already opened. You might want to do any or all of these things before the sun makes it all hot and heavy again.

Dress Lightly

Thank goodness that most Spanish style staples are lightweight clothes. Cotton dresses, linen separates, free-flowing silhouettes—these are all pieces that agree to the Mediterranean heat. And since you're in Barcelona, a famously stylish city with loads of incredible shopping districts around, you won't find it difficult to search for these cool (in every sense of the word!) styles. You'll see, on the most stylish streets of the city, that the way they dress here has always been light and airy. Not only to keep them cool under the Spanish sun but also to show off their sexiness and appeal.

Stay Under The Shade in The Afternoon

Whether it's for brunch or you hanging out in a park, staying under the shade is an easy way to keep cool in Barcelona. Fortunately, many of the culinary hotspots in the city have awning-covered terraces or tables with their own umbrellas attached. Most of the parks in the city are known for their beautiful big trees that give shade amidst the vast fields of lush greenery. And if you're busy sightseeing, some of the best and most Instagrammable places in Barcelona are beautiful structures that can shelter you from the summer heat. All you have to do is pick which one you like best!

Swim!

Since Barcelona is known to be an urban city made up of bustling districts, many often forget that it's actually a coastal town too. There are plenty of beaches along the outskirts of the Catalonian capital where you can beat the summer heat by splashing around in the sea. The most famous of which is Barceloneta Beach, but the likes of Bogatell Beach, Mar Bella Beach, and Nova Icària Beach are also great options. But what if you're not in the mood to get sand all over you? Well, the city's many public pools, like the Montjuic Olympic swimming pool or El Llac de la Creueta del Coll, are also on offer, especially during summer!

Zoom Through The City On Your Bike

Barcelona is one of those cities where riding your bike is as normal as public transport. In fact, many locals have gone to ride their bikes as a mode of transportation alternative to driving a car or taking a taxi. But ultimately, cycling remains a common leisure activity in the Catalonian capital. And with so many incredible routes to take, this is another great way to pass the time while cooling off in the city. Don't worry if you don't have your own bike. Rental services and transportation apps will help you borrow one for a time.

Go Out At Night

Finally, as mentioned earlier, there are times in the day when it's actually cold enough in Barcelona that you don't have to do anything. There's the morning twilight, of course, but there's also the nighttime. Just as the daytime brings about the hottest hours in the city, nighttime brings about the coolest. So much so that you can go out and do whatever you want and you won't feel hot at all. In fact, in some cases, you might even need an extra layer to keep you from freezing. Among the many things to do in Barcelona at night is to watch a flamenco performance or go on a hot date in a bar.

Barcelona may be one of the hottest cities in the world but that doesn't mean you can't keep cool here! In fact, there are a ton of ways where you can avoid the risk of getting heatstroke in the Catalonian capital. The best part? They're all fun and exciting!

Final note: Relaxing in your air conditioned luxury home in Barcelona is also a great way to stay cool here!
