There is a lot of focus on getting away on holiday for the summer at the moment, but now is a great time to book if you’d rather escape the miserable British winter for the Spanish coast.
Whether the thought of the nights drawing in or that feeling you get once Christmas and New Year is over are enough to tip you over the edge, getting away is the only thing for it.
You don’t have to travel far to catch some winter rays. During the later months of the year, particularly September and October, and even February next year, the weather is far from cold in Spain.
Although it might not be sunbathing weather every day, you can still expect plenty of sunny days with temperatures in the mid-20s (°C). What better way to escape the dull grey weather of the UK?
There are lots of advantages to heading over to Spain in the off-season – the kids are back at school, so the resorts and beaches are quieter and you’ll be much more likely to get cheap villas or hotel accommodation. Plus, the cooler days give you the perfect opportunity to escape the resort and do a bit of sightseeing.
Costa del Sol
The southern-most region, Costa del Sol, is typically warmer and drier than other areas of the country in Spain, making it ideal for winter sun. You’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches in peace, meet the locals in the pueblos blancos and take in the spectacular scenery.
Another popular winter holiday region, Costa Blanca is home to tourist hotspots such as Benidorm and Alicante. During the day you’ll be able to relax on the white sands or play a spot of golf, but it’s at night that this region really comes to life.
Spain’s “warm coast” has one of the mildest climates, yet is probably the least visited by British tourists. This makes for a peaceful winter holiday. Whether you want to soak up the sun on the beach or explore the culture, you can do it all in Costa Calida.
Southern Spain makes for a wonderful winter destination. There are beaches to relax on as well as plenty of sights to take in. Whether you want to explore Granada, visit ancient caves, climb to cliff tops or play golf, there is plenty to see and do.
Wherever you decide to go on your travels this winter, you’ll find a vast array of Spanish villas to suit all budgets.
