What to Wear in Spain in June
Best Shoes for Spain in June
Sneakers are the perfect shoe for summer in Spain, especially in the cities such as Barcelona, Madrid and Cordoba where you will have to do a lot of sightseeing on foot.
They are also great for sightseeing on Spanish islands.
After sneakers my favorite shoe for Spain in June is definitely a sandal. These are breathable for days when you do light walking and are also the perfect shoe for evenings out.
If you would like to wear a pair of sandals instead of sneakers then we recommend testing them before travel to ensure they are comfortable to walk in.
And if you want a sandal with height for evenings, then I recommend a wedge over a heel as these are
Flip flops are not good shoes for walking around cities due to the lack of support. However they are good for vacations in June when you plan to spend a lot of time on the beach or even round the pool.

What to Wear in Spain in June for women
Light weight trousers such as chinos and linen are better choices for Spain in June. They are loose and cool and work if you plan on visiting religious settings such as Sagrada Famailia which have a conservative dress code.
Unless you plan to go high in the mountains, then jeans can likely be left at home, as it will be uncomfortable during the day to wear these.
Shorts are great for days in cities and for on beaches. Just don’t wear them if you plan on heading to church.
Skirts and dresses
Spain is a fashionable, liberal and multicultural place and this is reflected in the clothes you will see the locals wearing on the streets. Therefore we recommend selecting dresses or skirts that you feel most comfortable in.
However if you want to wear a dress or skirt in a religious setting remember that you are required to keep your knees and shoulders covered.
A loose blouse works perfectly for warmer days and cooler nights and is a great item to wear to dinner in Spain.
T Shirts are perfect everywhere in Spain in June.
On the streets of Spain you are likely to see plain, patterned and even graphic t shirts so you can pick based on your fashion or personal preference.
A pashmina is always on my Spain packing list for every month. It is useful as it can act as a scarf or extra layer on cooler days and can help make your outfit more modest for visits to monasteries or churches.
PJs or Nightie
Lightweight pyjamas and nighties are perfect especially as not all accomodation in Spain or Europe in fact will have air conditioning.
Sunglasses are essential in Spain especially in Summer.
A sunhat is an essential for Spain even in the cities but especially for beaches and islands.
Whenever I travel with a sun hat I recommend taking this as carry on instead of a suitcase to help maintain the hats shape.
June is definitely swim weather in Spain. There are beaches in Barcelona, over 40km of them in fact, and the water is warm enough to swim in.
And if you are visiting the islands or a beach resort you will want a couple of pieces of swimwear with you.
You will see a mixture of one pieces and bikinis on Spanish beaches and in fact many of the younger generation will embrace bikinis on the skimpier side. Therefore wear what you feel most comfortable in. You won’t be out of place in a one piece, but equally you won’t be the only person in a thong bikini on a beach in Spain.
If you plan to visit the islands or spend a lot of time on beaches then a beach cover is also a great addition to your Spain packing list.
Underwear and Socks
Goes without saying.
What to pack for Spain in June for Men
The Spain packing in June for men tends to follow the same rules as for women.
Around Spain you will see all manner of clothes so you can really pack what you are comfortable in however you should remember there are dress codes at Spanish churches.
Generally speaking we recommend packing the below for men in Spain in June.
Lightweight trousers instead of jeans are more appropriate for Spain in June.
The weather is perfect for shorts in June especially for on beaches but also for touring in the city when you aren’t at a religious site.
T Shirts and Shirts
Short sleeve t shirts are perfect for sightseeing during the day in June.
However for evenings I would recommend having a button down shirt with long or shorts sleeves and maybe a polo shirt for day to night transition outfits.
Again, I would take this in cities and beaches. However if you are at a beach location then you should take at least 2 pairs.
In Spain you will see all sorts of men’s swimwear from speedos to trunks, so again wear what you feel most comfortable in.
An essential no matter the month.
For same reason as above.
Underwear, Socks and Pjs
What Else to Pack for Spain in June
- Aloe Vera / Aftersun – just in case you get burnt
- Travel Adaptor
- Power Pack / Battery recharger
- Crossbody bag – depending on where you are in Spain will depend on how much this is needed But I would recommend a crossbody bag for cities such as Madrid and Barcelona. As with anywhere in the world tourist cities can attract pickpockets so any deterrents are worthwhile.
- camera – Spain is a beautiful country you will want to take lots of photographs
