When to go
Summers in Spain are extremely hot, crowded and expensive. If you’re wanting beach weather, spring and fall are warm enough to swim without the prices or the crowds of summer. Winters are mild and ideal for avoiding crowds if you’re in the city but not warm enough to swim.

EU and Schengen countries can enter Spain along with a select few other countries. There are countries that have imposed quarantines on those arriving from Spain so keep that in mind for whatever your plans are afterwards.
