The beach in autumn? These are the places to go to in Spain
If you’re looking to enjoy the beach once the summer’s over, you’ll find plenty of options on the coasts of Spain. There are dozens of beaches that are a great choice at any time of the year. So, the question now is, what exactly are you looking for? Here you have some ideas:
Windsurfing and surfing on the north coast of Spain
If you’re looking for surf, then the perfect destinations are Cantabria, Asturias and the Basque Country. These three provinces share Spain’s Cantabrian coast, and are ideal for surfing thanks to great waves and good wind conditions. This is the Spanish surfers’ paradise, in addition to the Canary Islands and Cádiz.
Scuba diving in marine reserves
Admiring the underwater world is a luxury you can enjoy on the Costa Brava in the marine reserve near the Medes Islands, under El Hierro, the most sustainable island in the Canaries, or in the crystalline waters of the Balearic Islands where you can meet dozens of fish in waters that are just one metre deep! Imagine what wonders you might find at a depth of a few metres.
Walks along beaches that seem to go on forever
A good walk on a sweep of pristine beach is a joy at any time of the year. In Huelva you’ll find the longest beaches in Spain, such as the Castilla and Nueva Umbría beaches, which are 17 and 12 kilometres long respectively. Perfect for a long tranquil walk with some stunning views.
A refreshing swim in the Canary Islands and Andalusia
If you’re still not convinced, and you’re looking to take a dip outside the summer months, on the coast of Andalusia and in the Canary Islands you can enjoy 300 days of sunshine each year and higher temperatures than in the rest of Spain - perfect for going to the beach and taking that long-awaited swim.
