Platja D Aro Weather

You don’t get cold on a Costa Brava Holiday. The region’s Mediterranean climate guarantees long hot summers, with average temperatures often reaching 30° Celsius, and frequently giving 12 daily hours of sunshine. But even July and August are tempered by coastal winds. For cooler weather, think about coming on holidays to Platja d'Aro in the spring or autumn – it’ll still be pleasant.

The seafront of Platja d'Aro is full of beaches and small coves. Chose from the well-served, urban Main Beach, or small corners like Cala dels Canyers where the water and the trees almost touch, leaving a narrow strip of sand.

Each of the seven beaches and coves is unique. The Main Beach has more than two kilometres of soft, golden sand, and is known to be one of the best in the region against stiff competition! Cala Rovira, to the north, is smaller. Further afield, Cala del Pi and Cala dels Canyers, are quieter and in less developed surroundings. Sa Conca combines a wide, uncrowded sandy beach with green spaces.

Beyond the bustling seafront, there is a whole natural world to be discovered with delights like the Gavarres mountain range, and other open spaces.

Things To Do on Platja D Aro Holidays

Visit the Doll Museum, stroll through exhibitions in the idyllic setting of Benedormiens Castle and discover special corners like the Roman Settlement of Pla de Palol or the Church of Fanals d'Amunt. There’s even a Wrist Watch Museum in Platja d'Aro!


Platja d'Aro’s packed year-round programme of events and festivals include Carnival in February, the October Beer Festival and the Medieval Market in Castell d'Aro. The Nights of Jazz Summer Festival is just as unmissable.

The arrival of high summer is heralded every June 23, on the magical night of Saint John, when Platja d'Aro illuminates the sky with a spectacular fireworks display which can be seen all along the Main Beach.


As you would expect from a seaside Spain holiday, this resort boasts attractive, modern and trend-setting night clubs.
