The climate of Costa Brava (Spain)
The Costa Brava is the most northerly situated coastal region along the Mediterranean Sea in Spain. This region was among the first where mass tourism started in the second part of the 20th century. Especially people from Northern Europe traveled here to enjoy the pleasant Mediterranean climate with many hours of sunshine, pleasant temperatures and warm sea water during the summer. Unfortunately, mass tourism had its impact: the surroundings suffered. Along the coast many hotels and apartment complexes can be found that do not look particularly attractive. However, during the 90s an ever increasing number of people could afford to fly to distant countries. Because of this many countries and regions with a similar climate could be reached. This caused the rise of mass tourism on the Costa Brava to stagnate.
 

The weather
Something that hasnít changed over the course of years is the weather. Temperatures are fairly constant. However, heat waves seem to occur more often than several decades ago. Thunder storms also seem to be heavier during the summer causing floods. These kinds of phenomena make the headlines every now and then. You will not read in the news that it is dry and sunny 300 days per year because this has no news value. However, every tourist that travels here does know that the weather is very pleasant with the occasional shower.
