Our Advice:

You can see from this weather log that it will be hot, humid and very sunny in August. A great deal of the Barcelona population leave the city during this month to go on holiday. Many of the smaller shops are closed - but for the larger stores it will be "business as usual". The beaches are popular and a little overcrowded at this time. Barcelona suffers from high humidity in this month so make sure your hotel is fitted with air conditioning that will not only cool your room but take some of the humidity out of the air. High factor screen block and sun shades are a must at this time. Get around the city by metro which is mostly air conditioned on most of the trains. Try to avoid sunbathing during 11:30 - 16:00 when the sun is at its strongest. The days are still long so if you visit the beach from 16:00 you still have several hours of sun before it begins to weaken.
