Best time to travel

The best time to visit Barcelona for surfers is between September and March, this is the time when the best waves are found. From spring and during the summer it is almost impossible to find days with the good tide, in addition to the number of tourists visiting the city and therefore the beaches that make it almost impossible to enter the water.

Although the consistency of waves is not like in other areas of Spain and therefore it is not possible to practice at any time, we are talking about an average of 130 days a year, which makes it an interesting destination for surfers.

It is important to check the forecasts carefully so as not to miss a single day. Learn how to read the surf forecasts and make the most of the weather.

General and travel information about the place

Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, located on the northeastern Mediterranean coast of Spain. It is recognized as a cultural and leisure destination but over the years it has become increasingly popular as a surfing destination.

Being a coastal city, it has easily accessible beaches and more than 100 km of sandy strips. Eight beaches are suitable for surfing, all with sandy bottoms swells from the northeast, east, and southeast. Wave sizes start at 0.5 m/s and reach up to 3 m/s. This makes it an ideal destination for beginners.

Among the most recommended beaches are Barceloneta, La Caleta, Montgat, and Badalona. The alternative in terms of water sports and taking into account that there is no absolute consistency of waves would be paddle surfing and during the spring-summer period windsurfing.
