All of the graphs for the surf breaks presented on are on the same scale to enable comparison between locations around the world.

Barceloneta sea water temperatures peak in the range 25 to 29°C (77 to 84°F) on around the 15th of August and are at their minimum on about the 1st of March, in the range 12 to 14°C (54 to 57°F). Year round warm sea water temperatures at Barceloneta climb to their highest in mid August. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The minimum sea water temperatures at Barceloneta at the beginning of March are ideally suited to a 4/3mm wetsuit + 3mm boots, although a 5/3mm wetsuit may be preferable for longer sessions and cold windy days.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Barceloneta can vary by several degrees compared with these open water averages. This is especially true after heavy rain, close to river mouths or after long periods of strong offshore winds. Offshore winds cause colder deep water to replace surface water that has been warmed by the sun. Air temperature, wind-chill and sunshine should also be considered before deciding on the kind of wetsuit needed to stay warm when surfing at Barceloneta.
